The injury news gets gloomier by the week for the Nebraska men’s basketball team.
Starting wing Caleb Walker suffered a bruised back in a nasty fall last week against Central Michigan, and it has gotten worse instead of better. Walker was getting heavy attention from the training staff at the start of Monday’s practice in hopes that he could participate.
The health of junior wing Dylan Talley and junior center Jorge Brian Diaz also isn’t improving.
Talley now has a strained leg muscle that developed as he compensated for the severe thigh bruise he has battled. Coach Doc Sadler said it would take ”a minor miracle” for Talley to play Tuesday night against No. 11 Wisconsin.
Diaz still hasn’t practiced for about two weeks because of recurring foot problems. Custom orthotics for his shoes are scheduled to arrive Tuesday, Sadler said.
