The Huskies have been off since a Dec. 5 loss to Yale at home and the nine days to heal a multitude of injuries still needs more time.
Ryan Boatright (ankle) also has a bruise on his left leg courtesy of Terrence Samuel kick. It's the same leg as his bum ankle, but he expects to play. Rodney Purvis, who was in effective in the loss to Yale and didn't play in the second half, is improved and will be a game-time decision. He would appear likely to go.
Omar Calhoun, who has not played this season with an MCL sprain, is back in practice, but still needs some time to heal. Head coach Kevin Ollie said on Friday that he likely won't play against Coppin State and is targeting a return against Duke on Dec. 18.
Calhoun's absence is magnified by the lack of 3-point shooting from the Huskies.
The Huskies are shooting 27.7 percent from 3-point range. Calhoun is a shooter and scorer and looked excellent in practice in the preseason before going down with a knee injury. Calhoun averaged 11.1 points as a freshman, but had hip surgery that offseason. He never recovered physically and struggled through a disastrous sophomore season where he shot 30.5 percent from the floor with and averaged 3.8 points per game. Calhoun was in much better shape this season and showcased explosiveness and quickness in practice before the injury.
