From MLive:

“I’m 99 percent sure he’s going to play, unless there’s a setback,” Izzo said on Monday at his press conference.

Before getting injured, Ward had been averaging 15.1 points and 6.7 rebounds per contest.

The Spartans will play the winner of No. 9 Indiana and No. 8 Ohio State in the Big Ten Tournament quarterfinals this coming Friday.

Michigan State earned a share of the Big Ten regular season title on Saturday after defeating Michigan for the second time this season.

Big Ten Tournament: EVERY game predicted!

On Saturday, both Purdue and Michigan State handled their business to earn a share of the Big Ten regular-season title as each team finished with a 16-4 conference record.

With the regular season in the books, it’s now time to focus in on the Big Ten Tournament which tips off on Wednesday at the United Center in Chicago, Illinois. The No. 1 seeded Michigan State Spartans and the No. 3 seeded Michigan Wolverines will get some time to rest as they will not play until Friday.

WEDNESDAY

No. 13 Nebraska vs. No. 12 Rutgers

In their only matchup of the season, Rutgers beat Nebraska by seven. Though neither of these teams has a shot to make any noise in the tournament, the Scarlett Knights are the better squad.

Rutgers 70 Nebraska 65

No. 14 Northwestern vs. No. 11 Illinois

Northwestern and Illinois split their head to head matchups during the regular season with each team winning on their home court. That being said, Northwestern solidified themselves as the worst team in the conference by dropping 11 of their final 12 games of the season. Illinois is not much better but they will win a close one.

Illinois 77 Northwestern 73
