Both Blackmon Jr. and Jok have recently been sidelined. The Hoosiers junior suffered a lower leg injury in Saturday’s 30-point loss to Michigan and is out indefinitely. For the Hawkeyes, their senior missed the matchup against Ohio State a few days ago because of a back injury. He has dealt with it for a couple of weeks.
Jok currently leads the Big Ten in scoring with 21 points per game while Blackmon Jr. ranks fourth, producing 17.6 points per contest.
Iowa (12-10, 4-5 Big Ten) travels to Rutgers on Tuesday at 7 p.m. ET on Big Ten Network, and Indiana (14-8, 4-5) will square off with Penn State on Wednesday at 6:30 p.m. ET on Big Ten Network as well.
