Jordan Geronimo out against Iowa, Xavier Johnson goes through vigorous warmup

While he won’t play on Tuesday evening, point guard Xavier Johnson looks much closer to a return.

The fifth-year point guard wore the team’s pre-game warmups and put himself through a much more intense shooting routine than what we’ve seen over the last month.

Johnson left the court in a full sweat, and he was likely getting back in the routine to prepare for a possible return on Sunday when IU hosts Michigan.

Also not playing on Tuesday is junior forward Jordan Geronimo.

Geronimo emerged from the tunnel during pre-game wearing a boot on his right foot.

The program made the following statement pre-game regarding Johnson, Geronimo and Anthony Leal:

“Junior forward Jordan Geronimo is out with a lower right leg injury. Junior guard Anthony Leal is out with a lower leg injury. Senior guard Xavier Johnson dressed for warmups but Coach Woodson announced last night he will not play.”

Indiana and Iowa tip at 7 p.m. ET.
