Indiana head coach Mike Woodson is not with the Hoosiers for Wednesday’s game at Minnesota while recovering from COVID-19, the team announced.
Associate head coach Yasir Rosemond will assume Woodson’s responsibilities for Indiana (13-6, 4-4 Big Ten).
Minnesota, however, is beset with its own losses as leading scorer and rebounder Dawson Garcia and sixth man Pharrel Payne will miss the game with injuries. Garcia (14.9 points, 6.3 rebounds per game) sustained a bone bruise in his right foot in Sunday’s game at Michigan. Payne was placed in concussion protocol.
The injuries leave Minnesota with just seven scholarship players against the Hoosiers.
Woodson coached the team Sunday and the Hoosiers defeated Michigan State. Trayce Jackson-Davis tallied 31 points, 15 rebounds and five blocked shots in the 82-69 victory.
Indiana and Minnesota are scheduled to tip at 9 p.m. ET at Williams Arena.
