Isaiah Livers out indefinitely with “stress injury” in right foot

Isaiah Livers injured his foot against Maryland and will be out indefinitely after an MRI revealed a stress injury in his right foot. He will “will wear a protective boot while he immediately begins rehabbing.”

Here’s the official release:

Juwan Howard, the University of Michigan David and Meredith Men’s Basketball Head Coach, announced today (Saturday, March 14) that senior guard/forward Isaiah Livers will be out indefinitely after an MRI following yesterday’s Big Ten Tournament quarterfinal game against Maryland revealed a stress injury to his right foot. Livers will wear a protective boot while he immediately begins rehabbing.

An All-Big Ten second team selection, Livers helped the Wolverines win the 2021 Big Ten regular-season title and earn the No. 1 seed at the Big Ten Tournament. He is averaging 13.1 points, a career-best 6.0 rebounds and 2.0 assists while knocking down a team-best 50 three-pointers.

A tri-captain, Livers has played in 118 career games and is 13 points away from reaching 1,000 in his career. During his four-year career, he has helped U-M compile a 102-30 record that includes winning the 2018 Big Ten Tournament and reaching the 2018 Final Four and national title game.

    Are there other types of “stress injuries” to a foot besides a stress fracture?

    A stress reaction is a lesser injury on the same spectrum of injury. It is typically considered a faster recovery. Typically it depends on how early it is indicated. If Livers was trying to “play through the pain” then this is probably a fracture, if he reported it to the staff yesterday and they sent him for an MRI quickly, he may have just a reaction.

    Next.Man.Up. Juwan and staff get a chance to demonstrate their coaching chops now. Chaundee and John’s must carry the load. Hang tough team. #GoBlue

    This whole thing is devastating. Probably my favorite Wolverine. Such a team leader and a rock for the program.

    On a more mundane level, hard to see how they keep up with OSU’s scoring without Livers tossing in 3s like layups.

    Ahhh man, idk where to start. Hopefully for Isaiah he can rehab and get healthy, a miracle would be to have him back in the big dance.

    This time of year its just survive and advance, we are a brotherhood and we will try to step it up in Livers absence!

    Any word if Kyle Young will be ready to go for OSU?
