The roster uncertainty is only continuing for Baylor.

Scott Drew told FanDuel on Wednesday that LJ Cryer's status for the rest of the 21-22 season will be determined on a "game to game" basis. The 6-1 sophomore hasn't played since Feb 16th due to a foot injury and has only appeared in 19 of the team's 30 games this season.

Cryer is currently Baylor's second-leading scorer and is averaging 13.5 PPG while shooting a blistering 46.8% from three-point range.

The Bears have already lost one key rotation player for the year in 6-8 big man Jonathan Tchamwa Tchatchoua (8.4 PPG, 6.8 RPG), who suffered a season-ending knee injury against Texas on Feb. 12th.

Several other key members of Baylor's roster --- James Akinjo, Adam Flagler and Jeremy Sochan --- have also missed time this season as well due to injuries.

The Bears are currently 25-5 entering Saturday's regular season finale against Iowa State and can clinch at least a share of the Big 12 regular season title with a win. Baylor is also currently projected to be a number one seed in the NCAA Tournament.
