Cincinnati forward Justin Jackson hurt his ankle in Sunday’s game at Temple. Coach Mick Cronin now says it will be a game time decision if he plays Thursday night against Louisville.

“Hopefully he can move around tomorrow and we’ll know more then,” Cronin said via Cincinnati.com. “It’s like I told his dad last night, if he’s at a point where he can’t play, I may not bring him to the game or I might have to put him in the stands or he might try to check himself in.”
Jackson did not practice Tuesday or Wednesday morning.
“I’m a machine, baby,” Jackson said before Tuesday. “I’m perfect. I’m good. I feel like a million bucks.”
The 6’8″ senior is averaging 11.1 points, 7.4 rebounds and 3.4 blocks. He is 7th in the nation in blocks per game.
