Michigan Wolverines forward Jon Horford is expected to play in the season opener on Friday, Nov. 9 against Slippery Rock.

Michigan Wolverines forward Jon Horford is expected to play in the Wolverines season opener on Friday as he recovers from a sprained knee. Horford, a redshirt sophomore, missed both of Michigan's exhibition games after spraining his knee in practice, but coach John Beilein said Horford was a "full go" after his most recent workout and expects him to play on Friday against Slippery Rock.

Horford appeared in nine games last season before a right foot injury caused him to miss the Wolverines final 25 games. He averaged 2.7 points, 3.6 rebounds, and 1.0 blocks in 10.8 minutes per game before suffering the injury. Horford is seeking a medical redshirt due to the foot injury from last season. At 6'10, 250 lbs. Horford gives Michigan another big body to use in the post.

Last season Michigan finished 24-10 and 13-5 in the Big Ten. They are ranked No. 5 in the preseason polls this season.
