Michigan's Caris LeVert practicing, unknown when he'll return

BY foxsports • January 13, 2016

Michigan scored its biggest win of the season on Tuesday night, knocking off No. 3 Maryland 70-67 at home.

The Wolverines pulled off the upset without leading scorer and rebounder Caris LeVert, who missed his third straight game with a lower leg injury.

According to Brendan Quinn of MLive.com, Michigan head coach John Beilein updated the status of his star senior on Tuesday on WTKA-AM in Ann Arbor.

In a Wednesday morning interview on "The Michigan Insider" show on WTKA-AM (1050), John Beilein said that LeVert, Michigan's star guard and leader in scoring (17.6 ppg), rebounding (5.4 rpg) and assists (5.2 apg), is "going to try to do some things" in Michigan's practice Wednesday, but is still being slow and cautious in his recovery.

Beilein added that he still does not know when LeVert will return, saying that the 6-foot-7 senior guard will not play until he is first "out on that practice floor for a couple of days."

LeVert suffered the injury in a win over Illinois on Dec. 30. The team wouldn't specify what the injury was, initially listing him as "day-to-day."

The Wolverines are off until Sunday, when they travel to face No. 16 Iowa.
