Iowa basketball junior point guard Jordan Bohannon is among the most important players for the Hawkeyes. Coming off of a season in which he averaged 13.5 points and 5.4 assists per game, he starts the year on the mend.

Bohannon has been dealing with what head coach Fran McCaffrey had described as a bone bruise, and his status for tonight's season opener against UMKC was up in the air.

Now, it looks like he will be good to go for the Hawkeyes.

Earlier today, Fran McCaffrey said that Jordan Bohannon will play in Iowa basketball's season opener.

From Jon Rothstein:

Bohannon has been very quiet about the injury, and has not done much over the last few weeks, missing Iowa's exhibition season.

On Wednesday, McCaffrey said that he was starting to "look like himself" on the court, and Bohannon indicated that he should be ready to play.

Last season, Bohannon was a crucial shooting threat for the Hawkeyes, as well as the team's floor general.

The 6-foot-1 guard shot 43-percent from three, which was better than he was from the floor overall (42.3-percent). He is also money at the free throw line, knocking down 90.4-percent FTs last season.

The Hawkeyes and Kangaroos tip off at 8:05 p.m. ET tonight. The game will be broadcast on BTN+.
