They were up all night.
The graduate Engineering students at Purdue, that is - not the team. From Monday night to Tuesday morning, they worked on a state of the art brace that has never been made before.
That doesn’t mean he will play though.
He remains in a ton of pain. You guys have followed this just as much as I have, you have seen the videos. He has to run with that elbow tucked in tight. Has to shoot free throws left handed and is in pain when he shoots a layup.
Coach Painter said many times he doesn’t think he will play - this still remains the case, for now. Painters two stipulations were, rebound with two hands above his head - which he can but does so gingerly.
He still cannot really shoot a normal shot either. There was video of he making layups - but it remains difficult to shoot free throws.

For now, it appears as a game time decision. But I would say there is maybe a 25% chance he actually plays.
