No timetable for Michigan State’s Nick Ward after surgery on his hand

EAST LANSING, Mich. — Michigan State's Nick Ward had surgery on his left hand Sunday night, coach Tom Izzo said Monday, but there remains no definitive timetable for the star forward's return.

"We're gonna have to adjust as a team. … There's no doubt our margin for error has shrunk," Izzo said. "Nick won't be replaced by one guy, it'll be a group."

That group to replace the size in the post, Izzo said, will come from freshmen Thomas Kithier, Marcus Bingham Jr. and walk-on Braden Burke, who played his freshman year at Robert Morris in Pittsburgh in 2016-17.

"You know what? We're gonna use the whole damn team," Izzo said. "And we're gonna have some fun."
