Traevon Jackson has missed the last 11 games for No. 5 Wisconsin.

On Sunday, the Badgers host Michigan State, in what will be the last game inside the Kohl Center for seniors Jackson, Frank Kaminsky and Duje Dukan. However, Jackson has yet to be cleared to practice, according to Jeff Potrykus of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel.

Jackson has been out since Jan. 12 with a fractured right foot, suffered in Wisconsin’s loss to Rutgers. With Jackson out of the lineup, sophomore guard Bronson Koenig has been inserted into the starting lineup, averaging 12.0 points, 2.4 rebounds and 2.2 assists per game during that stretch. Jackson was posted averages of 9.4 points and 2.9 assists a night prior to his injury.

In his absence the Badgers are 10-1 with that lone loss coming this past Tuesday against No. 14 Maryland. The Badgers are currently projected as a No. 2 seed in College Basketball Talk‘s latest bracket.
