Indiana senior guard A.J., who did not play Thursday against Illinois because he was dealing with personal issues, has not yet rejoined the team, according to IU media relations director J.D. Campbell.
The nature of Ratliff’s problems are not known.
Indiana head coach Kelvin Sampson said Friday that he is not sure when Ratliff would return but that it will be up to him to make that decision when he is ready.
Ratliff’s uncle and legal guardian, Josh Gilbert, told the H-T on Thursday that he expected Ratliff to be back with the team in time for tomorrow’s game.
