MINNEAPOLIS — Minnesota sidelined leading scorer Dawson Garcia and top reserve Pharrel Payne for the game against Indiana due to injuries that further depleted the last-place team in the Big Ten. Hoosiers coach Mike Woodson also was ruled out because of COVID-19. Garcia has a bone bruise in his right foot. Payne was placed in the concussion protocol. The return timetable for both players was to be determined. Backup guard Braeden Carrington will be out at least another three weeks because of a stress reaction in his right leg. Forwards Parker Fox and Isaiah Ihnen suffered season-ending ACL injuries last summer.
