It's time to bubble wrap everyone associated with the program.

UPDATE (2/7/16): Te'Jon Lucas has fractured his right foot in two places.

*****

It's bad enough that players on Illinois' active roster keep getting hurt, but that bad luck has evidently spread to the program's recruits. Class-of-2016 point guard Te'Jon Lucas went down with an apparent ankle injury during Milwaukee Washington's game against Champaign Centennial on Saturday night.

John Groce and Paris Parham were on hand at Parkland College to see the matchup. As you can see below, Groce was immediately by the side of his future point guard once he was taken off the floor.

Lucas had 21 points, 6 assists, and 4 rebounds before his injury and was, by all accounts, playing very well.

Lucas committed to the Fighting Illini in September, and signed his National Letter of Intent during the early signing period. He's the lone member of Illinois' 2016 recruiting class.

We'll keep you updated on Lucas' injury as more news becomes available.
