MADISON, Wis. (AP) Injured Wisconsin point guard Traevon Jackson has returned to practice, though it is still unclear whether the senior will be ready for the start of the NCAA Tournament.

Jackson has been out two months after breaking his right foot in a 67-62 loss on Jan. 11 at Rutgers.

Wisconsin (31-3) had a light practice on Tuesday, when Jackson participated in shootaround and individual drills. The top-seeded Badgers play Coastal Carolina on Friday night in their NCAA opener in Omaha, Nebraska.

Jackson said that he had been cleared, and that it would be up to him about when he feels ready to play. He said he felt about 90 percent.

Associate head coach Greg Gard said the team had to monitor Jackson through the week before determining what to expect.
