guarding against disaster

A year after starting 28 games, Boo Wade won't suit up for the Badgers...

Boo Wade, expected to compete to be Wisconsin's starting point guard this season, is taking an indefinite leave of absence from the team.

while former Penn State star Sharif Chambliss, cautiously optimistic, remains a health risk...

Sharif Chambliss can't tell you if he is 70%, 80% or 90% recovered from the knee injury he suffered late last college basketball season, but he knows he feels good...

Chambliss was cleared to participate in practice just before the team's first workout Saturday and has worked out in moderation in order to avoid developing tendonitis in the knee.

and Kammron Taylor lacks experience.

Taylor, a 6-3, 175-pound native of Minneapolis, played just 41 minutes in 18 games last season, with a total of 21 points, two rebounds, one assist and three turnovers to his credit.

What, then, about freshman Michael Flowers? He's a high school stud who, after committing to Bo Ryan, went on to have -- you guessed it -- an injury-plagued senior season.

Michael Flowers, a guard at Madison La Follette, suffered two torn tendons and a chipped bone in his left ankle last April. He underwent surgery Oct. 24, missed four games, played sparingly in several others and never appeared to fully recover.
