The Indiana basketball program hits the hardwood for game number 23 of the 2023-24 season on Tuesday night and released its official injury report this afternoon.
The Big Ten began with its weekly availability report for football this season and announced that it would be conducting the same schedule with basketball. It was announced that programs will have to release their injury reports three hours before tip.
For Indiana, its injury report listed guard Xavier Johnson (elbow) as out.
Johnson exited in the second half of Indiana’s win over Iowa last Tuesday after taking a hard fall on his elbow. This is the second-straight game he’s missed.
On Saturday, Johnson was seen with a bulky brace on his elbow.
Xavier Johnson, the sixth-year point guard, has had a very disappointing season — both from a health and production standpoint. He is averaging just 8.3 points and 2.1 assists — both career lows — in 14 games. Johnson missed seven games earlier this season with a foot injury.
Since his return, he has averaged just 6.6 points on 34.8 percent shooting. He also has 17 turnovers to just 16 assists.
