      EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) " Michigan State coach Tom Izzo says Delvon Roe is questionable to play at No. 2 Ohio State.

      Michigan State's medical staff has determined Roe sprained or bruised his surgically repaired right knee against Penn State.

      The Spartans hope Roe can jog during practice Monday and play Tuesday night against the Buckeyes.

      Roe was hurt in Thursday night's win against the Nittany Lions. The junior forward was fouled hard on a layup in the final minute, allowing Draymond Green to make a 10th assist for a triple-double. Roe limped off the court after the game and didn't practice with his team last weekend.

      The Ohio native has started 21 games this season and is averaging seven points, five-plus rebounds and is one of the team's best defenders.
