Maryland won’t have Damonte Dodd against Stony Brook, but Michal Cekovsky will play, per reports

Guard Dion Wiley will also reportedly make his return from a stomach virus.

Maryland basketball will be without its starting center and leading shot-blocker Damonte Dodd against Stony Brook on Tuesday night, as he is recovering from a concussion.

Dion Wiley is expected back after missing Sunday afternoon’s game vs. Towson with a stomach virus and Michal Cekovsky is expected back for the first time this year after suffering from a foot sprain, according to the Baltimore Sun’s Don Markus.

The Terps have struggled to find a post presence this season, and Cekovsky’s return should help that issue. Duquesne transfer L.G. Gill has had to slide down and play a bit out of position at the center spot at times, and as a result has had issues with foul trouble. With Dodd out he may run into similar problems, but with Cekovsky back on the court this may be the last time.

Maryland tips off against the Stony Brook Seawolves at 7 p.m. at home at Xfinity Center.
