Korie Lucious undergoes knee surgery, moderate anxiety ensues

The Only Colors looks at the implications of the news that Korie Lucious has undergone arthroscopic knee surgery six weeks out from the MSU basketball season opener.

Surgery for MSU's Kalin Lucas a success

The procedure on Lucas' left foot/ankle went well. He's hoping to join the team in Indy later this week. Elsewhere in the world of college basketball, there are conflicting reports on what's going on with Oregon and Tubby Smith.

Spartans' Chris Allen, Delvon Roe ready to endure pain with Final Four trip on the line

Allen says he would have gone 30 minutes against UNI if not for foul trouble, but also says he tweaked the foot early in the second half and was in quite a bit of pain. Quote: "I don't care what happens tomorrow because I've got a week to recover. I'll just go all out." Roe says his knee "has as much as it needs to help get this team to the championship. I am sore but it’s hard work to get to the Final Four." I love the attitude, but I worry about what the impact of the quick turnaround will be on the two players' ability to compete at a high level for 20+ minutes on Sunday afternoon. Tom Izzo, meanwhile has installed some plays in which Draymond Green functions as the point guard. Top seeds are falling like flies. Is Izzo's bag of tricks deep enough to take advantage? P.S. Game preview is here. I've added some information from the good folks at Rocky Top Talk on Tennessee's defensive tendencies in the comments.

Chris Allen expects to play more than four minutes Friday

Allen's foot is green, not purple, now. Seems liked good karma for a Spartan player, at least. Practiced for 50 minutes without pain yesterday. Switching to shoes with more stability/support. My intuition is that that we'll do well to get a good 10-15 minutes out of Allen tonight. Austin Thornton is very likely to get an opportunity to build on the 7 points and 5 rebounds (in 16 minutes) he's produced in the last two games.

We've got a 'MASH' unit. The bottom of Chris' foot is purple, Delvon is playing on one leg and Raymar looks like a hockey player with his tooth cut in half. We think we can get Chris back -- after showing toughness we've never seen from him -- and we'll hold Delvon out of practice to let him rest as much as we can.

Michigan St. coach Izzo: '90 percent chance' Lucas is done

Allen "minute-to-minute"

Strained arch. In a boot. Game-time decision. Definitely puts a crimp in Tom Izzo's plans. Lucas insisted on practicing today. Claims to be 100%.

Draymond Green says his right knee feels pretty good after injuring it in the UM game. Wore a brace in Thursday's practice. He "tweaked" it.

Good news from Eric Lacy

That won't happen for another couple of weeks -- where he's back (at least) 95 percent. But at...

That won't happen for another couple of weeks -- where he's back (at least) 95 percent. But at least we're making some progress. He's playing in games now and that's really going to help us.

As expected; torn ACL. Nichol is day-to-day (but aren't we all?). Caper is A-OK.
