HOUSTON (AP) -Michigan State reserve forward Marquise Gray was limited in practice Thursday with a knee injury, but coach Tom Izzo expects him to play against Memphis.
Izzo said Gray twisted it in practice but wasn't sure of the extent of the injury.
``He hurt his knee, and we're not sure if it was a recurring injury where it just locks up or whether there's more to it than that,'' Izzo said.
Gray is averaging 4.5 points and 3.8 rebounds this season and has averaged 5.8 points and 3.3 rebounds in about 11 minutes a game in the tournament this year.
``If it's just locked up and they get it unlocked, he'll be 95 percent,'' Izzo said. ``If not, we have to find a way to tape him up or put a steel cast on it or whatever, but he's got to play.''
