Branden Dawson has proven to have anger problems in the past. Last year he got into a physical altercation with teammate Adreian Payne, which resulted in a benching of the two.
Dawson is now filling the void of Payne’s absence (plantar faciitis), who has missed the previous three games. Dawson is averaging 10.2 points and 8.7 rebounds per game.
But now the junior forward is expected to miss several weeks.
Dawson says he was watching TV clips this morning with the team and got frustrated, slammed hand against table, suffering injury.

With no timetable set for Adreian Payne, this is a huge loss for the Spartans. Especially since a date with rival Michigan is on the horizon.
