Bruesewitz returns to practice, could be a game-time decision

Mike Bruesewitz suffered a right knee sprain in Wisconsin's last game.

Injured forward Mike Bruesewitz (right knee) returned to practice Tuesday in a limited capacity but is still listed as day-to-day, the team announced Tuesday.

A source close to the team tells Bucky's 5th Quarter that the team still does not know whether or not Bruesewitz will be able to play Thursday in UW's second round game against Belmont and a decision likely won't be made until the day of the game.

The latest announcement was made on the team's official twitter account, which read: "Mike Bruesewitz (knee sprain) returned to practice in limited action today. He remains day-to-day, but its a positive step."

Bruesewitz injured the knee in last Friday's quarterfinal loss to Penn State in the Big Ten Tournament. He appeared to roll his right ankle mid-way through the second half and his knee gave out as a result.

While it is unclear which ligament is sprained, an MCL sprain for instance usually takes at least two weeks to heal although it is possible to play on the injury depending on the amount of swelling.
