The Wisconsin Badgers are set to face off against the Iowa Hawkeyes on Tuesday to kick off the second half of the season, with tipoff scheduled for 6:00 P.M. CT at the Kohl Center.

Ahead of the game, the Badgers have listed Chucky Hepburn as questionable with a lower-body injury, while the Hawkeyes have nobody on the injury report.

Hepburn sustained the injury early in the second half of Wisconsin’s 80-53 win over the Chicago State Cougars and was immediately ruled out.

However, after the game, head coach Greg Gard expressed optimism about Hepburn’s injury, suggesting that a return against Iowa was possible.

“He was walking around in the locker room a little bit,” Gard said about Hepburn following the game, via 247Sports’s Nick Osen. “He’s gonna be sore, but he says he’ll be fine…he’ll have some time to rest here and get him back.”

If Hepburn cannot go, the Badgers will likely rely on the likes of Max Klesmit, John Blackwell, and Kamari McGee to handle the primary ball-handling responsibilities.
