Tim Hardaway Jr. injury: Michigan guard to miss Saturday's game

Mike Stobe

Tim Hardaway Jr. will miss the first game of his collegiate career Saturday as he deals with an ankle injury.

Michigan guard Tim Hardaway Jr. will not suit up for tonight's game against Central Michigan due to a right ankle injury, according to a team announcement before tip-off.

The No. 2 Wolverines shouldn't have much trouble with the Chippewas with Hardaway watching from the sidelines but it's worth noting that this is the first game he's missed in his 81-game career at Michigan.

Hardaway has started every game in his three years as a Wolverine and is averaging 15.8 points and 5.3 rebounds this season. He dropped a line of 17 points, seven assists and five rebounds in Michigan's most recent victory over Eastern Michigan.

Redshirt freshman Caris LeVert is likely to move into the lineup in Hardaway's place for his first career start. If head coach John Beilein decides to go a more veteran route, he could send Matt Vogrich or Eso Akunne out there instead.
