Tom Crean told his LIVE LISTENING AUDIENCE at the Holiday Inn that medical staff is shooting for Hanner Perea's return for the Minnesota game on February 15.
He'd previously stated that Perea's return could be expected in mid-February.
What does that mean for the Hoosiers? They'll be saddled with the current lineup, with Collin Hartman playing the 5-spot, for five more games through the return trip to Maryland on February 11. Through that stretch, Indiana will also travel to Purdue (Wednesday) and Wisconsin, and host Rutgers and Michigan.
We'll update with other notes and highlights after the show. You can listen live here.
