By Ashley Dunkak
Coming off a season during which he landed a spot on the NCAA Final Four All-Tournament Team, won Big Ten Freshman of the Week twice, played in all 39 games and started eight, Michigan sophomore forward Mitch McGary is day-to-day with limited participation in practices because of a lower back condition, head coach John Beilein announced Friday.
“The U-M athletic medicine staff has been monitoring his progress and he is working diligently through this process,” Beilein stated in a press release. “At this point, his full participation is day to day, with an expected return to be determined.”
In the 2012-2013 season, McGary played 19.7 minutes per game and averaged 7.5 points and 6.31 rebounds.
