Travis Trice injury: Michigan State guard out Sunday because of concussion

Greg Bartram-US PRESSWIRE

The sophomore, backup point guard suffered a concussion and broken nose in Michigan State's season opener against Connecticut.

Michigan State backup point guard Travis Trice will remain out of the lineup for the Spartans on Sunday when they host Texas Southern on Sunday, according to a report from Diamond Leung of MLive.com.

Trice, 19, is a sophomore that has been out since suffering a concussion and broken nose during the season opener for Michigan State in Germany against Connecticut. Talking to Leung on Thursday, Spartans head coach Tom Izzo said that the injury might keep Trice off the court for a while:

"His thing is not great," coach Tom Izzo said. "He can't really go to class. It's just a pretty good hit. They keep telling me that it's day-to-day, but it's day-to-day with nothing in the near future. I got a feeling it's one of those two-week concussions."

Trice suffered from an ankle injury during his freshman year that caused him to miss some games, although he appeared in 32 and averaged 17.2 minutes per game with 4.5 points. He recorded 18 minutes against UConn before leaving the game and scored three points with one assist and one steal.

Sunday's game against Texas Southern is the first home game of the season for Michigan State and the first of four-straight home games in a week's time.
