Brust left Wednesday's practice after falling hard on his backside, the Wisconsin State Journal reports.

Officially, Brust, who's started a whopping 61 consecutive games for the Badgers, is listed as day-to-day. He did some stretching exercises Wednesday after falling but ultimately left with an assistant trainer. Wisconsin travels to Iowa to face the Hawkeyes on Saturday and while nothing's official, it would be rather surprising if Brust wasn't out there.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Brust scored 20 points (5-7 FG, 4-4 3Pt, 6-8 FT) with six rebounds in Thursday's win over Minnesota.

Brust snapped out of a long funk in his shooting percentages by hitting all four of his three-point attempts for the Badgers. While his point totals had not suffered, he had been really struggling for a few games on his consistency. It appears Brust has found the touch again heading into a big matchup Sunday on the road against Michigan.

Brust scored 21 points (7-18 FG, 3-10 3Pt, 4-4 FT) with five steals and four rebounds in Wednesday's game against Northwestern.

Brust took a high volume of three-point shots in the game as the Badgers were cold in the shooting department which ended up in an upset at the hands of Northwestern. The point total Wednesday was a season-high for Brust. He also has an outstanding .953 free-throw percentage this season.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Brust has struggled from beyond the arc over his last three contests.

The Badgers quickly tumbled from the ranks of the unbeaten and have now dropped three straight contests. Brust hasn't played particularly poorly, though he's just 4-of-16 from three over the last three games. Still, he's shooting nearly 42.0 percent on the year and remains a strong rebounder (4.9 per game) for his position.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Brust is averaging 13.1 points, 5.1 rebounds, and 1.6 assists this season for Wisconsin in 16 games.

Brust, the only senior in the starting lineup for the Badgers, is having a productive season in Madison. He is a go-to three-point shooter for a high-powered Wisconsin offense and has a career-high 44.2 percentage from beyond the arc. Add to that a 94.1 free-throw percentage and a high amount of rebounds for a guard and he is a well-rounded player to add to the lineup.

Brust produced a double-double Sunday with 14 points (5-8 FG, 2-2 3Pt, 2-3 FT) and 11 rebounds in 25 minutes as Wisconsin manhandled Southeastern Louisiana.

Brust also dished out three assists, while picking up two steals on the defensive end. In the meantime, he had never displayed a strong presence on the glass, as his previous career high was six rebounds. We'd be apt to expect more assists from Brust this season with Josh Gasser out with a torn ACL, but Bo Ryan's swing offense spreads out the dimes among many, which appears set to occur this year more than any other.

Brust accumulated 11 points on 4-of-8 from the field, including three from three-point range, to go with four rebounds in 19 minutes off the bench as Wisconsin beat Vanderbilt on Saturday during the third round of the NCAA Tournament.

Saturday marked the first time in seven games that Brust notched double-digit points or multiple three-point makes. Considering he's seen the court as much as 22 minutes and as little as three minutes since the beginning of Feb., it's difficult to forecast a scoring outburst, however minimal, for Brust going forward.

Brust hit two treys Thursday on his way to 10 points (4-7 FG) in 22 minutes off the bench as Wisconsin lost at Iowa.

Brust also tallied four rebounds and a steal to complete his night for the Badgers. In Big Ten action, he has scored in double figures only four times in 15 tilts, though he still knocks down, on average, 1.2 three-pointers.
