Indiana forward Trayce Jackson-Davis is not in uniform for pre-game warmups on Tuesday evening as the Hoosiers get set to face Elon.
Jackson-Davis missed a game earlier in the season against Little Rock due to a back injury. He has also dealt with a right thumb injury during the first month of the season.
Indiana released the following brief statement on Jackson-Davis:
“As he did earlier this season against Little Rock, senior Trayce Jackson-Davis will not play for precautionary reasons,” IU Athletics said.
Jackson-Davis could be seen standing on the floor during warmups without any visible medical devices or limitations.
The senior forward is averaging 16.4 points and 8.2 rebounds. He leads the team in both categories.
The Hoosiers will also be without starting point guard Xavier Johnson, who is out indefinitely with a foot injury. Indiana Athletics said in the same release Johnson is still be evaluated.
Malik Reneau and Trey Galloway are starting in place of Jackson-Davis and Johnson.
Indiana and Elon tip at 7 p.m. Eastern at Simon Skjodt Assembly Hall.
