Wisconsin Badgers star Johnny Davis sustained an ankle injury during his team’s loss to the Nebraska Cornhuskers on Sunday. Davis was injured on a flagrant foul, which occurred in the second half of the 74-73 loss to the Cornhuskers. The star’s early exit played a large role in the Badgers losing the game, which also cost them a chance to clinch the Big Ten title outright. With the conference tournament coming up, Davis, who was named the Big Ten’s Player of the Year, revealed the status of his ankle injury, as reported by college basketball analyst Jeff Goodman.

Per Goodman, Johnny Davis said that his ankle injury is fine and that he’ll be good to go for the Big Ten tournament. Davis’ own assessment reflects the sentiment echoed after the game by his coach Greg Gard, who reassured reporters that the Badgers star would be healthy moving forward.

Davis, the Big Ten Player of the Year, has averaged 20.0 points, 8.1 rebounds, and 2.2 assists per game for the Badgers this year, helping to lead them to a 24-6 record. He played a small role for the Badgers as a freshman but has made a massive leap as a starter this year.

Now, it appears that the Badgers will have their best player, Johnny Davis, for the Big Ten tournament- and beyond.
