Dawson will return to Michigan State for his senior season, ESPN's Jeff Goodman reports.

This is excellent news for the Spartans, as they will lose a lot of talent to this year's draft, and Dawson should be one of the leading contributors for the team in the 2014-15 season.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Dawson scored 24 points and added 10 rebounds as Michigan advanced past Virginia Friday in the NCAA tournament.

Dawson was a force for the Spartans' and the key to their victory. Michigan State has so many players that can carry the team each game, it's no wonder they're a title favorite.

Dawson scored a career-high 26 points and added nine rebounds in Saturday's win over Harvard.

If the Spartans' continue to get play like this from their role players expect a long run through the tournament. Dawson and Michigan State will get their toughest test next, facing top-ranked Virginia Friday.

Dawson scored 15 and added six rebounds in the Spartans' Big 10 title game win over Michigan Sunday.

Dawson was very effective for Michigan State playing just 24 minutes but hitting 7-of-8 field goal attempts.

Dawson (hand) returned to Michigan State's lineup on Saturday, scoring six points (2-6 FG, 2-2 FT), with seven rebounds, two steals, and one block in 25 minutes of action.

Dawson missed nine games with a broken hand after slamming his hand on a table during a film session earlier this season. Dawson's return should help an injury plagued Michigan State team as he is the team's leading rebounder, pulling in 8.6 per game.

Dawson (hand) will likely play in Saturday's game against Illinois, Matt Norlander of CBS Sports reports.

Dawson has been out for nine games with a broken hand that was sustained when he slammed his hand on a table during a film session. The Spartans have been hampered by injuries all season, so Dawson will provide a returning piece to the frontcourt.

Dawson will have the pins in his broken hand removed next week, and he may have a shot to return for a Feb. 23 game against the Michigan Wolverines, the Detroit Free Press reports.

Dawson, the Spartans' leading rebounder (8.7 per game), has been out since Jan. 21 with a broken hand, and he's expected to miss at least one more week of action. That still gives him a chance to return near the front end of his 4-5 week timetable for a game against the in-state rival Wolverines.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Dawson will miss 4-5 weeks with a broken bone in his hand suffered Thursday, the Detroit Free Press reports.

Dawson reportedly was watching game film with the team and slammed his hand on a table in frustration, breaking a bone in his hand. With Adreian Payne already out for a few games, the Spartans will be thin on frontcourt depth in the short term. Expect Kenny Kaminski to be a big candidate for a boost in minutes.
