Juwan Morgan's hurt. Kind of.

The 6-8 Indiana recruit sustained a "knee contusion" in tonight's opening round of the Bass Pro Tournament of Champions.

Go back to sleep. Juwan Morgan's knee is just fine.

After going down with a "knee contusion" tonight in his game tonight, Indiana recruit Morgan tells Jeff Rabjohns of Peegs.com that he's "fine" and could be good to go for tomorrow's game.

Sidelined for most of the contest, Morgan's Waynesville (MO) squad dropped a 57-42 decision their first-round matchup of the Bass Pro Shops Tournament of Champions to Bishop O'Dowd (Oakland, CA) tonight. It's likely a disappointment for Morgan -- who had an opportunity to further impress Tom Crean & other Indiana staffers in person, as they traveled to JQH Arena on the campus of Missouri State University to watch Morgan compete on a large national stage. But maybe Crean can use up all those saved-up Marriott points tonight -- Morgan and Waynesville will take on the winner of Wesleyan Christian (NC) & Bentonville (AR) tomorrow evening.

Granted, Crean's probably got that whole "practice" thing to run. The Hoosiers head to Illinois this weekend.

Don't feel too sorry for Morgan, either. He just found out he'll be one of five players from the state of Missouri nominated to play in the McDonald's All-American Game in Chicago this summer.
