Flowers Takes Leave of Absence from Team

Senior guard Michael Flowers will be taking a break from the UW men's basketball team for unspecified medical reasons. It is unclear from the statement released by the university Thursday whether the cause is something affecting Flowers himself physically or if it might be a family medical issue. It's too early to speculate.

I hope for the best for Mike and whatever issue he is facing. Have faith that he will be on the court again this season for the Badgers as the absence has been officially termed "temporary" for now.

If Flowers should miss any significant portion of the season, the backcourt rotation becomes very thin with possibly both sophomore guards starting and Krabbenhoft rotating in at shooting guard. Bo Ryan has heaped some praise on how ready his freshman class is currently and it's a good thing because now it looks like Tim Jarmusz will be expected to also contribute in the backcourt right away.
