The Michigan Wolverines played a tune-up game against Presbyterian College on Saturday afternoon in Ann Arbor prior to an eight-day layoff between games, but were not quite able to get throughout unscathed.
Junior forward Isaiah Livers left early in the contest after being fouled on a dunk attempt. Prior to shooting the two free throws, he walked to mid-court and hunched over with what appeared to be some sort of lower body injury, which is being described by Michigan as a muscle strain.
He would head to the locker room after being subbed out and replaced by Adrien Nunez. After returning to the bench, he was ruled out for the rest of the contest.
Michigan is off until Dec. 29 when UMass-Lowell comes to Ann Arbor for a Sunday afternoon tilt before getting into the meat of Big Ten play on Jan. 5 against Michigan State in East Lansing.
We will have more on Livers when it becomes available.
