Trayce Jackson-Davis should be ready to play against Purdue

Indiana star forward Trayce Jackson-Davis took a hard fall late in the second half on Monday evening in Nebraska and didn’t return to the contest.

Immediately after the game Jackson-Davis said in a social media post he would play against Purdue on Thursday.  He does indeed appear to be headed in that direction.

Head coach Mike Woodson said today Jackson-Davis is on pace to play in the rivalry game at Simon Skjodt Assembly Hall.  The 6-foot-9 Jackson-Davis has been eased back into activity since the injury to his hip area.

“He didn’t do a lot yesterday (Tuesday).  I’m sure that we’ll work him back in slowly today, and he’ll be ready to play tomorrow,” Woodson said in a media availability on Wednesday morning.

The junior forward is averaging 19.1 points and 9.1 rebounds while shooting 60.7 percent from the field.

Jackson-Davis has not missed a game during his 76-contest career with the Hoosiers.
