Indiana’s Devin Davis back on the court with teammates Yogi Ferrell and Troy Williams

On Christmas Eve, Indiana sophomore forward Devin Davis worked out with teammates Yogi Ferrell and Troy Williams in an empty high school gymnasium.

The video was captured by Davis’ father, Devin Davis Sr. The 15-second clip, showing the three going through dribbling and shooting drills serves as another step in Davis’ recovery after he was struck by a car — driven by teammate Emmitt Holt — in the early hours of Nov. 1.

Last week, Indiana head coach Tom Crean announced that Davis was scheduled to return to school next semester, and while he will be enrolled in classes, his return with the team remains unclear.

“What’s most important is that he heals properly, that he knows it’s here when he gets back and he can get back to being a student,” Crean said at the time, according to the Indianapolis Star. “We would certainly anticipate him being back in school (in the spring).

“We just want to be set for whatever the doctors feel is the best situation. We’re getting closer to that. …

“Every injury’s hard. This is completely different, because you’re dealing with the brain.”

Indiana returns to its non-conference schedule on Saturday at noon against Georgetown. The game will be played at Madison Square Garden.
