Jerome Hunter’s return to the Indiana basketball team isn’t imminent.
Hoosiers coach Archie Miller said Hunter’s recovery from November surgery has had fits and starts.
“Jerome’s doing well. Jerome is still responding, I think, pretty good right now from his recovery of his two procedures on his lower leg,” Miller said Monday night on his weekly radio show. “Right now, he’s working through conditioning to see how his body reacts. At times, he’s had some more setbacks. And at time, he hasn’t had any setbacks. It’s just a wait-and-see approach with him. We’re taking it slow.
“It’s unfortunate for a young guy that loves the game so much (that) he’s been set back.”
