Update 6:15 p.m. Illinois stars Kofi Cockburn and Andre Curbelo are out against Michigan State. That’s a big blow for the Illini, who will now be heavy underdogs against the Spartans.

Update 5:00 p.m. Javon Freeman-Liberty is out for DePaul at Villanova.

Update 1:42 p.m. Eli Paquet is a go for Colorado tonight against Oregon according to Jon Rothstein.

Update 1:10 p.m. It looks like TyTy Washington might not be available for the Kentucky Wildcats this evening, according to Jack Pilgrim of Kentucky Sports Report.

As the heat of the college basketball conference season heats up, more and more players will be unavailable due to new or nagging injuries, COVID-19 health protocols, and other off-the-court matters as well. And for the sports bettor, the last-minute updating status of injuries can be the deciding factor in how to bet plenty of games on the board.
