Max Bielfeldt, a redshirt freshman forward playing for Michigan, will be out at least two weeks with an ankle sprain.
The 6-foot 7 Bielfeldt suffered the sprain during practice last Monday and was wearing a protective boot on the sidelines during Michigan's 73-41 victory over the Western Michigan Broncos last Tuesday night.
"He's walking around, but I don't think he's going to practice today," coach John Beilein said. "I don't think he's going to be able to play."
"He ended up spraining his ankle with about a half hour left in practice (Monday) and it's a pretty good sprain. We don't know if he'll be able available Saturday (against) Arkansas," Beilein added.
In Bielfeldt's place 6-foot 10 sophomore John Horford has played, averaging 1.9 points and 1.9 rebounds in 8.7 minutes per game this season. Bielfeldt was averaging 1.2 points per game and 2.8 rebounds in about six minutes of play.
