Worry? Worry.

USA TODAY Sports

Gary Harris and Travis Trice are both uncertain for Wednesday's game.

Via Rexrode:

Michigan State guards Travis Trice (head) and Gary Harris (back spasms) did not practice Saturday and are uncertain for Wednesday's game against Minnesota, coach Tom Izzo said today, during the Big Ten teleconference.

Both were injured in Thursday's 80-75 comeback win over Illinois. Trice took a hit to the head, and Izzo said it has not yet been determined whether Trice suffered a concussion. More tests are planned for today, and more is expected to be known by MSU's afternoon practice.

This is, needless to say, quite worrisome. Obviously, the staff will and should be cautious in determining the two players' status for Wednesday night--particularly in Trice's case. But if neither of them were to play, here's your depth chart for the three perimeter spots in the lineup:

Starters
Keith Appling
Denzel Valentine
Branden Dawson

Bench
Keenan Wetzel
Dan Chapman

Update: OH, YEAH, RUSSELL BYRD IS ALSO AN MSU BASKETBALL PLAYER WHO COULD MAYBE PLAY IN A GAME FOR A WHILE.

Gulp.

In that scenario, you could actually see Adreian Payne playing small forward for a significant number of few minutes.

As Chris pointed out after the Illinois game, this is all my fault for ceasing to worry about depth. ATTENTION: Angry MSU Basketball Player Hating God. I am officially worried again and promise not stop worrying about under any circumstances. OK, now can we please have at least one healthy scholarship productive guard off the bench?
