Tuesday men’s basketball game between No. 3 Purdue and host Michigan has been postponed due to continued COVID issues within the Wolverines’ program.

Michigan also had its scheduled game against Michigan State postponed on Saturday after it fell below the Big Ten Conference roster minimum with fewer than seven scholarship players available.

The Wolverines (7-6, 1-2 Big Ten) are now scheduled to return to action on Friday when they visit Illinois at Champaign.

The Boilermakers (13-2, 2-2) will play host to Nebraska on Friday in West Lafayette, Ind.

The teams will work with the Big Ten Conference on when to reschedule Tuesday’s game.
