Michigan's Jordan Morgan plays limited minutes, Nik Stauskas battles the flu at Indiana
BLOOMINGTON, Ind. -- Michigan's roster returned to full health Saturday at Indiana.
After missing the team's home win over Northwestern on Wednesday due to an injured right ankle, junior forward Jordan Morgan returned to action Saturday during the Wolverines' 81-73 loss against the Hoosiers.
He didn't play much, though, logging just two minutes off the bench.
"I watched him in there, but I just liked the way Mitch (McGary) was playing in there and the energy he was giving us," Michigan coach John Beilein said. "And I was like, 'OK, is Jordan going to give us more (coming off an injury) than that right now with a game on Tuesday?' "
Morgan, who twisted his right ankle at Illinois last Sunday, checked in for two minutes during the first half -- without the aid of any type of ankle brace -- but didn't see any further time after that.
McGary logged 28 minutes, while sophomore Jon Horford earned the start, netting 10 minutes.
Beilein said Morgan did not practice with the team at all on Friday, but showed Beilein enough in individual drills to return to game action.
In addition, Michigan freshman wing Nik Stauskas didn't practice Friday due to a flu bug.
Stauskas went just 3 of 10 from the floor, 1 of 5 from 3-point range, for 10 points in 34 minutes.
"Nik had the flu (Friday), he couldn't practice," Beilein said. "We were glad that Nik could play.
"We didn't go into this with (a) fine-tuned thing (from Friday), but I think we fared as well as we could."
