Crean on radio: Hartman is day-to-day

Collin Hartman injured his leg Sunday against Rutgers and IU coach Tom Crean said on his radio show Monday night that the sophomore his day-to-day. He said it's too early to tell how long Hartman will be out.

Collin Hartman suffered a leg injury Sunday against Rutgers and he is considered day-to-day. It’s unclear whether he’ll be available for the Northwestern game.

During his weekly radio show Monday night, Indiana coach Tom Crean was asked by Don Fischer for an update on Hartman’s situation.

“It’s too early to tell,’’ Crean said. “The doctors were in today and yesterday, obviously, Dr. (Larry) Rink was with us. His status is really a little uncertain right now. He didn’t do anything today. We’ve just been checking him and testing him and we’re hoping that he gets over some of the pain that he’s dealing with.

“I would say right now that it’s going to be day-to-day for a bit.’’

Hartman was injured Sunday when his knee collided with a Rutgers player. It wasn’t the leg that he tore the ACL with a year ago though.

It could be a case where he is rested on Wednesday night and then would have six days to let it feel better before IU plays again at home against Iowa. Top Stories
