Bryant, Hartman missing time with injuries #iubb

CHICAGO — Injuries and depth are already an issue for Indiana basketball.

At Thursday’s Big Ten Media Day, IU coach Tom Crean said freshman center Thomas Bryant is missing time with a sore foot and junior forward Collin Hartman is out with a rib injury.

Bryant has participated in only one full practice and has been limited over the last two weeks. Hartman has been out since recently taking a charge from teammate Troy Williams.

“Right now, we’re the product of injuries,” Crean said. “We have a long way to go to get our depth to where it needs for an upper-echelon team in this league.”
