Indiana injuries

IU kept three players out of their game against Little Rock on Wednesday because of injuries. Trayce Jackson-Davis (back) and Trey Galloway (knee) did not play as the program described as a precaution. Anthony Leal has an ankle injury.

Jackson State is Indiana’s last game before the Hoosiers host No. 1 North Carolina on Wednesday. IU forward Race Thompson said Jackson-Davis could have played Wednesday if needed.

“I think if Trayce had to go today, he could have gone,” Thompson said after the Little Rock game. “I think it was more of a precaution on his part.”
