Michigan shouldn’t be too detoured with the Moe Wagner injury

For Michigan basketball fans, the 2017-18 season has been a pleasant surprise thus far as the team continues to churn out wins that’ll undoubtedly help them once selection Sunday comes around next March. So far this campaign, John Beilein’s squad is undefeated at home with a big signature win coming the other night when they shocked UCLA in overtime after overcoming a 15-point second half deficit.

The Wolverines followed up their gutsy performance against the Bruins by taking to the road and defeating Texas 59-52 finishing a stretch that included UCLA, the Longhorns, Buckeyes, Indiana and North Carolina.

Unfortunately however, The Wolverines’ victory over Texas didn’t come without cost as Moritz Wagner was helped off the court with 7:36 remaining in the game with what was described as a “slight ankle sprain”.

If it’s slight, which by all account it is considering he Wagner left the stadium last night limping but not in a walking boot according to MLive’s Andrew Kahn, Michigan should be left in a fortunate position when it comes to the schedule they have left the rest of 2017.

Instead of a plethora of games against power five schools, the Wolverines will take on the University of Detroit Saturday from Little Caesars, Alabama A&M at home the following Thursday before closing out against Jacksonville on December 30th which is also another home tilt. By then, if Wagner isn’t back yet hopefully he would have had enough time to heal up given Michigan’s Big Ten schedule takes full effect on January 2nd in Iowa City against the Hawkeyes.
