The biggest news out of the NBA Draft Combine today is that DJ Wilson won’t workout at the draft.

Wilson is recovering from a quad injury and isn’t where he wants to be, according to MLive. He won’t workout and will only participate in measurements and interviews.

John Beilein says he’s been nursing the injury for 4 or 5 days and might have to cancel other workouts. The NBA Draft withdrawal deadline is May 24th, when Wilson and Wagner will have to either hire and agent or decide to return to school.

Here are Beilein’s full remarks via MLive.

In an updated mock draft based on ‘intel from Chicago’, Draft Express moved Wilson up to No. 30 to the Utah Jazz.

Both Derrick Walton and Moritz Wagner will participate in full court action at the NBA Draft Combine. Here are the full 5-on-5 teams.


Wilson, Wagner and Walton were also measured on Thursday and here are their full measurements.

DJ Wilson checked in with a 7-foot-3 wingspan, tied for 12th best at the combine. Wilson measured 6-foot-10.5 with shoes and weighed 234.4 pounds.

Moritz Wagner didn’t get quite as big of a lift from his shoes, but posted a respectable 7-foot wingspan at 231.2 pounds.

Derrick Walton almost reached 6-foot-1 with shoes and weighed 188.6 pounds with a 6-foot-2.5 wingspan.

Here are the full measurements for all three Michigan participants.

    Looks like someone’s got a promise, should make Mo Bamba’s decision a little easier ☺ Also, I’ve seen in articles on and I think North Pole Hoops that we’re on RJ Barrett #1 in the class of 2019’s list, not sure how his possible reclassification and scholorship situation will affect our recruitment of him and others…

      I was thinking the same thing after suddenly pulling/dropping out of workouts after a great workout with either Utah or San Antonio. Maybe one of the two told him to shut it down. San Antonio would be a great fit with what they are building towards the future. PG-6’5 Dejounte Murray, SG-6’7 Kawhi Leonard, SF-6’8 Kyle Slo-Mo Anderson, PF-6-11DJ Wilson, C-6’11LaMarcus Aldridge would make up one Long Yoing Lineup for the League to have to contend with.
