Indiana guard Devan Dumes will not play in Sundayâ€™s regular-season finale at Wisconsin, coach Tom Crean announced Saturday.
Dumes is the Hoosiersâ€™ top scorer at 12.7 points per game and appeared to injure his right knee just three minutes into Tuesday nightâ€™s loss to Michigan State. Crean said afterward that Dumes had aggravated an old injury and would be re-evaluated during the week.
Crean has not yet said whether Dumes will play during next weekâ€™s Big Ten tournament in Indianapolis.
â€œWe will continue to monitor his progress,â€ Crean said in a statement.

Junior guard Devan Dumes has not been able to practice since injuring his knee in Tuesday nightâ€™s game, Indiana head coach Tom Crean said Friday.
Dumes, the teamâ€™s leading scorer, aggravated a previous injury to his right knee early in the loss to Michigan State and has been limited to light drills only, Crean said. Dumes has been receiving treatment for the injury, which Crean called a sprain, but a timetable for his return has not been set.
Freshman Malik Story has also been limited this week due to step throat, but did practice some Friday, according to Crean.
Wisconsin upset Michigan State in the opener today. We’ll see if it’s a trend or if the Badgers stole all the underdog magic.

You’re better off to watch these on mute since the BTN’s Mike Hall sounds more like one of his lousy auditions for ESPN’s Dream Job a few years ago.
