Marquette star Markus Howard said his wrist was "quite good" before the first-round match of the fifth-seeded Golden Eagles of the NCAA tournament against Murray, seeded number 12.
Howard, the sixth-best scorer in Division I this season, appeared to be suffering from the left wrist during the first half of Marquette's loss to Seton Hall at the Big East tournament last week.

"I see our sports coach every day about it," Howard said Wednesday. "Take very good precautions, so I'm ready to go and everything will be fine tomorrow."
Howard went to the locker room using his left wrist late in the first half of Friday's 81-79 defeat against Seton Hall.
Howard came back in the second half, but had his worst game of the season, finishing 1 of 15 on the ground and missing four free throws in the final two minutes.
Howard has averaged 25.0 points per game this season and has been named Big East player of the year.
