Michigan senior guard Spike Albrecht underwent hip surgery at the end of the 2014-15 season and has not been able to workout much this summer. Near the end of the offseason, he began taking shots and has been making big strides towards playing this year.
According to College Spun, Michigan head coach John Beilein updated Albrecht’s status for the upcoming season. He said that Albrecht should be back on the court pretty early this year and that is certainly good news for the Wolverines and their fans.
Beilein says Spike Albrecht (hip surgery) is still progressing. Not as limited as Irvin. Will be ready in early season.

Last season, Albrecht averaged 7.5 points and 3.9 assists per game. His production is going to be key for the Wolverines if they are going to compete in the Big Ten as projected.
The Wolverines open the season on November 13 as they host Northern Michigan.
