EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) - Michigan State guard Keith Appling says he'll be ``all right'' in the Midwest Regional semifinals against Duke.
Appling practiced Monday with his banged-up right shoulder in a protective wrap after taking a pad off his left knee.
He hurt his shoulder in Saturday's win over Memphis with 8:35 left in the game and didn't return. He has been playing with a sore knee.
Appling hopes he doesn't have to play with any protection when the third-seeded Spartans play the second-seeded Blue Devils on Friday night in Indianapolis.
The 6-foot-1, 190-pound junior is Michigan State's leading scorer, averaging 13.3 points a game, and has a team-high 3.4 assists per game.
