Korie Lucious Expects To Be Suspended, Healthy By Start Of Season

Michigan State's Korie Lucious, who underwent arthroscopic knee surgery last month, is expecting to be good to go health-wise by the time the Spartans start the 2010-11 season in November. When he will actually get to play, however, is up in the air because of his drunken driving arrest (he later plead guilty to a lesser charge).

"(Tom Izzo) hasn’t really come up to me and actually told me, but I know I’m going to have to miss some playing time," Lucious said. "Whenever he tells me, I’m going to be ready for it."

"I know that I made a mistake and I have to deal with the consequences," Lucious said. "That’s part of being a man, just dealing with whatever happens to you. I’m willing to look past it and just move on with the season."

Izzo has not announced a suspension yet, but it is expected that Lucious will miss at least one regular season game. So even if he is healthy enough to play come the Nov. 12 opener against Eastern Michigan, it's likely that he will have to wait until the South Carolina game on Nov. 16, or perhaps even the Maui Invitational later in the month, to make his 2010-11 debut.
