Ohio State fifth-year senior guard C.J. Walker is expected to play today against No. 10 Wisconsin after missing the past four games with torn ligaments in his hand, according to a report by CBS Sports’ Jon Rothstein.

According to the report, head coach Chris Holtmann said that Walker “will try and play today” and that it will “all based on pain tolerance as he moved forward.”

Walker is currently fourth on the team with 8.7 points per game and is shooting 30.1 percent from the field and 20 percent from three. He also still leads the team with 46 assists despite missing the past four games, and is averaging a team-high 4.2 assists per contest.
