Indiana’s been a mess without him. But, tonight, in what might be a last-chance opportunity to salvage the Hoosiers’ season, Indiana’s best player will return to the floor at home against Purdue — per Tom Crean on pregame radio.

And he’s allegedly looking decent, from those on the scene.
James Blackmon Jr. threw down a nice two handed dunk before heading into the locker room. That lower leg looks healthy to me. #iubb— Zain Pyarali (@ZainPyarali) February 9, 2017
Indiana’s yet to win a conference game when Blackmon scores less than 16 points. They’ll need every single one from him tonight.
