Mitch McGary Making Progress In Return From Back Injury

Mitch McGary is getting ready to play again after sitting with a lower back condition.

"I'm hoping to get back on the court in the next couple of weeks, but we're not rushing anything," said McGary.

McGary averaged 7.5 points and 6.3 rebounds per game as a freshman at Michigan, but became a major factor in the tournament.

"He's progressing every day," John Beilein said. "But there's not as much of a sense of urgency. He's day to day, but we're not going to put him out there until he's pain free. We want him to be 100 percent."
