Indiana basketball coach Tom Crean is hopeful his team will be at full strength when the Hoosiers (12-7, 2-4 Big Ten) play host to Illinois (13-7, 2-5) on Sunday.
IU was without senior forward Will Sheehey in Tuesday's 71-66 loss at No. 3 Michigan State on Tuesday.
Sheehey injured his ankle in a 54-47 loss to Northwestern last Saturday, but he practiced Thursday.
"I'm not able to say if he is ahead of schedule or behind it, but I think having him out there was a real good thing," Crean said during a Friday teleconference.
"He just didn't do very much, but he did some non-contact stuff and things of that nature, so we will see how it goes over the next few days. I think after yesterday that we would be hopeful."
