Dekker said he will return for his junior season, Jeff Goodman of ESPN reports.

Dekker's sophomore season wasn't as explosive as expected, but he put up a respectable stat line, averaging 12.4 points and 6.1 rebounds in 30 minutes. Dekker would be a top candidate for a breakout season in 2014 if he does return to the Badgers.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Dekker was able to return to Thursday's game after limping off late with an apparent knee injury.

It will be worth monitoring his status, but it seems likely that he'll be able to play as the Badgers advance to the round of 32 to play the winner of Thursday's Oregon/BYU game.

Dekker limped off the court holding his right kneecap late in the second half of the Badgers game against American, the Wisconsin State Journal's Jim Polzin reports.

The Badgers were destroying American at the time of the injury, so regardless of the severity, it's unlikely he returns to the game. Owners will want to monitor his status as the Badgers advance to the round of 32.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Dekker struggled on Sunday against Nebraska, scoring just six points (3-9 FG, 0-1 3Pt), with two rebounds, and one assist.

Dekker hasn't been the impact player that he's been known to be as of late. Sunday's performance is indicitive of that as he struggled to do much of anything while the ninth ranked Badgers were upset by Nebraska. Dekker is still a main cog for the Badgers and will lead the team throughout the Big Ten and NCAA tournaments.

Dekker scored 15 points (6-13 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 1-2 FT) with 11 rebounds in Saturday's road win over Iowa.

Dekker had a hot first half, scoring 12 points and helping the Badgers take a commanding early lead. While the scoring slowed in the second half, he attacked the boards and made some great contributions for the team to earn a big victory on the road.

Dekker scored 15 points (6-10 FG, 2-2 3Pt, 1-2 FT) with nine rebounds in Sunday's game against Michigan.

Dekker had another productive game for the Badgers when they needed it on the road. He showed solid all-around scoring on the floor and contributions in other areas as well. He did reportedly suffer a sprained left hand diving for a loose ball, but was able to stay in the game.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Dekker had 11 points (3-8 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 2-2 FT), five rebounds, and two steals in Sunday's win over Michigan State.

Dekker had been in a bit of a slump as of late but his last two performances (Illinois and Michigan State) may mark the end of the slump. His 3-6 performance from beyond the arc on Sunday is encouraging as he had been struggling from downtown as of late. Dekker is still Wisconsin's most viable offensive option and will continue to pace the Badgers.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Dekker had just four points (2-6 FG, 0-2 3Pt), four rebounds, and an assist in Saturday's loss to Ohio State.

Dekker has struggled in his last two games, averaging just 7.5 points while shooting a combined 4-15 FG, including an 0-6 mark from beyond the arc. It hasn't been just Dekker struggling, as the Badgers have failed to reach the 60-point mark in their last three games. However, for a player like Dekker, he should be able to turn things around in the near future.
