Nick Ward missed practice Wednesday for Michigan State basketball. Coach Tom Izzo said his junior forward “tweaked his ankle a hair” during practice a day earlier, but added Ward would have gone through workouts but also has an exam to prepare for. Finals week is one of the challenges when the No. 9 Spartans face Wisconsin-Green Bay on Sunday at Breslin Center (5 p.m., BTN); it’s a game Izzo expects Ward to play.
