MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The status of Minnesota starting guards Amir Coffey and Dupree McBrayer remains uncertain for the upcoming game at Indiana.

Gophers coach Richard Pitino said Thursday that Coffey and McBrayer are still considered day to day. The Gophers play the Hoosiers Friday.

Coffey has missed the past three games and eight of the past 10 because of the shoulder injury. The sophomore is the team’s third-leading scorer.

McBrayer has played 12 straight games since missing the past two games before Christmas because of what began as a stress reaction in his left shin bone, but the pain forced McBrayer to sit out during the second half Tuesday against Nebraska. The junior is wearing a walking boot and has not been practicing.

The Gophers have lost six straight games.
