Notre Dame forward Luke Harangody is getting used to answering health questions.
Since suffering a bone bruise on his right knee Feb. 11, the two-time All-American forward has been asked how his knee feels.
And the day before the Irish open play in the NCAA tournament against Old Dominion, the senior was asked again about his knee.
"It's good," Harangody said. "Every day it is getting better. My knee feels great. The thing I'm just worried about right now is my conditioning and getting back to normal.
"I'm pretty close. During practice (Tuesday), I felt really good. I was able to go up and down for a while. It was good."
But just because Harangody is nearly back to form, Notre Dame coach Mike Brey isn't looking to put him back in the starting lineup.
The Irish will stick with forward Carleton Scott starting with Harangody coming off the bench, but Harangody could start playing more after averaging 24 minutes in three Big East tournament games.
"Practice was good these last couple days because it's getting him back into a rhythm," Brey said. "So kind of play it by ear and see. We're open to anything. But that seems to be a good segment of time for him, 24 or 25 minutes."
