Livers exited Tuesday’s 61-52 loss at Northwestern two minutes into the game after falling hard under the basket following a fast-break layup and landing awkwardly on his left ankle.
Michigan coach John Beilein didn’t have enough information to give an official prognosis but said the early thought is that Livers suffered an ankle sprain.
He was quickly replaced by fifth-year senior forward Duncan Robinson and looked at by the training staff on the bench before heading back to the locker room for further evaluation.
While Beilein said he doesn't know the severity of Livers' injury, Michigan will take a wait-and-see approach before determining his availability for Sunday’s game at Wisconsin.
“He gives us a lot energy,” said junior center Moritz Wagner, who missed two games earlier this season with an ankle sprain.
Northwestern coach Chris Collins said his team’s top priority on defense was not giving senior guard Muhammad-Ali Abdur-Rahkman, Wagner and Robinson any open 3-pointers.
