Indiana starting guard Xavier Johnson will miss a second consecutive game on Tuesday after suffering an elbow injury a week ago against Iowa.
The 6-foot-3 Johnson has already missed eight games this season due to multiple injuries.
No other players were listed on the Big Ten’s availability report as out or questionable for Indiana or Ohio State.
When commenting on Johnson’s elbow injury, coach Mike Woodson hinted Friday it could be a multiple game situation.
“It’s been a struggle because we just haven’t had a full deck, and I don’t know if we’re ever going to have one, to be honest with you,” Woodson said. “I don’t know what’s going to happen with X.”
Johnson was one of the best players on the floor when Indiana beat Ohio State a month ago in Bloomington. The sixth-year guard had 18 points, 3 assists and no turnovers in the contest, while slowing Buckeyes point guard Bruce Thornton.
On the season, Johnson is averaging 8.3 points, 2.2 rebounds and 2.1 assists while shooting 40.7 percent from the field.
Indiana and Ohio State tip at 7 p.m. ET on Peacock.
