Izzo: Lucas likely has Achilles tear






MSU men’s basketball head coach Tom Izzo said junior guard Kalin Lucas likely tore his left Achilles tendon Sunday in the first half of the Spartans’ 85-83 win against Maryland.

“It looks like it might be a torn Achilles, to be honest with you,” Izzo said after the game. “That poor kid was devastated. … I don’t know that for sure, so it’s not a diagnosed thing. There have been no X-rays or MRIs, but the prognosis is 85 percent that.”

Lucas left the game with 2:09 remaining in the first half of Sunday’s game and did not return.
