Buckeyes’ Sullinger has foot X-rayed

Ohio State forward Jared Sullinger left the game against South Carolina after getting kicked in the left foot Saturday.

X-rays showed Sullinger did not have a fracture in the foot, but he did not return after heading to the locker room early in the first half.

Sullinger limped to the locker room less than five minutes into the second-ranked Buckeyes game at the Colonial Life Arena.

Sullinger missed two games with back spasms, including Ohio State’s lone loss on the season, 78-67 to Kansas last Saturday. Sullinger was back in the lineup this past Wednesday night for an 82-58 victory over South Carolina Upstate.

Sullinger has averaged 18 points and 10 rebounds in eight games this season.
