ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) - Michigan coach John Beilein says he doesn't expect junior Zak Irvin to play when the 25th-ranked Wolverines host Northern Michigan in their season opener Friday night.
The 6-foot-6 Irvin is coming off back surgery, and Beilein says he isn't in game shape yet.
Irvin averaged 14.3 points per game as a sophomore.
Beilein says guard Spike Albrecht will play "spot minutes" after having offseason hip surgery.
