Big news today for Michigan's long-term chances as Morgan's ankle is not broken. Michigan was able to get by without him against Illinois, but things could get way tougher with Indiana, OSU, MSU, and Wisconsin on the upcoming schedule. Morgan has struggled at times this year, but his defensive intensity has added quite a bit to a team that has struggled at times with their defense. No timetable for recovery yet, but could be a bit if they were that concerned it was broken.
Update: reports are now that Morgan is doubtful to practice and play against Northwestern on Wednesday. There will be a competition to see how starts. Could be McGary's first start of his career.

If they were worried it might be broken, it must be a pretty bad sprain. Not good.
If it WAS broken after receiving x-rays, it's time to find a new x-ray technician.
It's not good that they were that worried. That makes me think we won't have him for tough road games at IU, MSU, and Wiscy where it'd be nice to have his defense and leadership.
It's good that he'll be back for later on in the year though, as March is all that really matters.
Yeah...good and bad news.
I don't know about that. Might be just precautionary.
I have rolled my right ankle just like morgan did about 4-5 times in my playing days. Probably a solid 2 weeks and he could be serviceable, but wont really be 100%. The thing is not to rush him back and have him roll the ankle again, as I did 3 times in 4 weeks. The ankle becomes significantly more difficult to bring back to full strength if that cycle happens. My ankle is forever gimpy now as a result, and I quit playing basketball (if anyone cares).
If it's a high ankle sprain, he'll be out for 3-4 weeks, at least. If it's your standard "roll your ankle" variety, and it's swollen/discolored, he'll be out 2 weeks with intense rehab. It'll take a few days to get the swelling out, then a few more days to get full range of motion, then a week of treatment to see how it responds.
It sucks but he'll be back in time for the tourneys.
