It looks like Michigan will be at full strength when it takes the court to start its basketball season Friday.
Wolverines coach John Beilein said Thursday morning that junior guard Muhammad-Ali Abdur-Rahkman would be available for the opener against Howard (9 p.m. ET). Abdur-Rahkman missed the team’s exhibition game against Armstrong last week with an ankle injury.

Abdur-Rahkman played in all 36 of Michigan’s game last season and made 25 starts. The 6-foot-4 guard averaged 8.6 points per game in the 2015-16 campaign and was named the team’s most improved player.
Abdur-Rahkman shot 45.8 percent from the floor last season and knocked down 31 3-pointers. He’ll be a key part of Michigan’s back court as the Wolverines try to get back to the NCAA Tournament for the second straight season.
