Fans everywhere of the Michigan Wolverines are holding their collective breath right now.
Guard Eli Brooks injured his ankle during this afternoon's tilt against the in-state rival Michigan State Spartans at Breslin Center, landing on Marcus Bingham's foot. Unable to put any weight on his foot, he was assisted off the floor by head coach Juwan Howard, and soon headed to the locker room with trainer Alex Wong:

One of Michigan's most important players, Brooks has been averaging 8.9 points, 3.1 rebounds, and three assists while shooting 40.9% from the field this season. He's already suffered a strained foot earlier this campaign.
