Wisconsin Badger senior Traevon Jackson will not play when Wisconsin faces Coastal Carolina tonight in their 2015 NCAA Tournament opener in Omaha, Nebraska.
Jackson isn’t expected to return until the West Region semifinals, if the top-seeded Badgers advance out of this weekend.
Jackson has missed the last 17 games with a broken right foot at Rutgers on Jan. 11. He returned to practice this week but has yet to take part in possessions work.
Jackson said its a matter of getting the strength back in his foot. He said he’s feeling better every day.
