Dawson will miss Michigan State's next two games with a broken wrist, the athletic department released.

It could be worse for Dawson and the Spartans, as the two games the forward will miss are Eastern Michigan and Texas Southern. If that timeline is followed, Dawson will return December 30 against Maryland, but whether or not Dawson is ready for Big Ten play is likely up in the air.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Updating a previous item, coach Tom Izzo acknowledged Dawson (left wrist) will "miss some time" after being injured against Eastern Michigan on Wednesday night, according to Matt Charboneau of The Detroit News.

Dawson will be re-evaluated on Thursday, after an initial diagnosis of a sprained wrist during the game.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Dawson had four points and seven rebounds against Eastern Michigan on Wednesday night, before going down with what has been diagnosed as a sprained left wrist.

Dawson hit the floor hard, and was unable to return to the game. Further tests on his wrist are coming, after which a better idea of his prognosis should come.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Dawson sprained his wrist Wednesday against Eastern Michigan and will not return. He had four points and seven rebounds before leaving.

Dawson had been playing well, includ9ing his monster 16-point, 18-rebound game against Notre Dame on Dec. 3. The Spartans do not have a strong backup for the bouncy forward, but freshman Marvin Clark Jr. could get a boost in value.

December 14, 2014

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Dawson had 15 points, six rebounds, three steals and two assists Sunday night against Oakland.

Dawson has scored at least 12 points in three straight games. He is now averaging 11.6 points, 8.7 rebounds, 2.1 assists and 1.4 steals per game in nine games played so far this season.

December 6, 2014

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Dawson had 12 points (5-10 FG, 2-3 FT), seven rebounds and four assists in 24 minutes Saturday against Arkansas-Pine Bluff.

It appears that Dawson has gotten on track following a slow start to the year. He had 16 points and 18 rebounds against Notre Dame on Wednesday but wasn't asked to do nearly as much Saturday against a softer opponent. Dawson should put up solid numbers against the soft non-conference opponents that await Michigan State when they resume play on December 14.

December 3, 2014

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Dawsen has been quiet over Michigan State's last three games, scoring just 16 combined points on 7-of-22 shooting.

Dawsen turned in a trio of solid games to begin the season, averaging 15 points and eight rebounds versus Navy, Duke and Loyola (IL). However, he hasn't been aggressive of late and struggled mightily against Kansas on Sunday (4-15 FG), though he did grab nine rebounds in 24 minutes.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Dawson (illness) will not play Monday against Santa Clara, Joe Rexrode of the Detroit Free Press reports.

Playing without Dawson is a major loss for the Spartans, as the senior is one of the top forwards in the Big 10. Through three games, he's averaging 15.0 points, 8.0 rebounds and 2.0 assists while shooting nearly 68 percent from the field. With Alvin Ellis already ruled out, Michigan State will be thin in the frontcourt.
