It looks like Michigan State freshman sensation Miles Bridges is set to return to the court this week.
Bridges, who has been out of action since suffering a high-ankle sprain against Duke earlier this year, will reportedly return to the Spartans lineup on Wednesday night against Rutgers in East Lansing.
Michigan State head coach Tom Izzo provided the update on Bridges’ status while speaking to the media on Monday.
