Travis Trice injury: Michigan State guard to return on Wednesday?

Jonathan Daniel

Spartans sophomore guard Travis Trice expects to be ready to play Wednesday against Miami in the Big Ten/ACC Challenge.

Two weeks after suffering a concussion and breaking his nose in the season opener, Michigan State guard Travis Trice expects to be able to play Wednesday against the Miami Hurricanes in the Big Ten/ACC Challenge, Diamond Leung of the MLive.com reported.

The sophomore guard has yet to practice, but he rode a bike and got in some shooting practice during a Friday workout, his first since the injury. He said he would "definitely" be able to play in Miami.

Spartans coach Tom Izzo sounded encouraged after the workout, calling it "a big step in the right direction." Trice is expected to miss his fifth consecutive game Sunday when the Spartans take on Louisiana-Lafayette.

Michigan State is already playing without guard Gary Harris, who is expected to miss at least two more weeks with a sprained shoulder.

As a freshman, Trice averaged 4.5 points and 1.8 assists while shooting more than 40 percent from three-point range.
