Watkins was arrested for the third time in two years and was charged with drug paraphernalia possession, the Centre Daily News reports.

Watkins was also arrested in 2016 for criminal mischief and 2017 for disorderly conduct. The 6-9 forward averaged 12.9 points and 8.8 rebounds for the Nittany Lions last year, but missed the last nine games of the season with a leg injury as Penn State won the NIT Championship.

Mike Watkins: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

March 19, 2018

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Watkins (leg) has been ruled out for the rest of the season, Ben Jones of StateCollege.com reports.

Watkins had been looking doubtful for the rest of the tournament, but coach Pat Chambers came out Monday and put an end to any speculation that he may return. The 6-9 center will finish his sophomore season with averages of 12.1 points and 8.9 rebounds, and will likely end up on next year's preseason all-Big Ten team. For the time being, however, Julian Moore will get all the center minutes he can handle, starting with Tuesday's quarterfinal matchup at Marquette.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Watkins will "probably" remain out for the NIT, Audrey Synder of DK Pittsburgh Sports reports.

Watkins will likely be held out of the NIT after missing the entire Big 10 Tournament due to a leg injury. According to coach Pat Chambers, the only way he could make a return this season is if Penn State makes a deep run in the tournament. With Watkins out, expect Julian Moore to draw starts at center and for Satchel Pierce to play increased minutes off the bench.

March 1, 2018

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Watkins (leg) has been ruled out for Big 10 tournament, John McGonigal of the Centre Daily Times reports.

Penn State will be shorthanded in the front court for the remainder of the conference tournament, as the team pushes to get back into March Madness discussions. Look for Julian Moore to continue starting at center for the remainder of the week with Satchel Pierce potentially seeing extra minutes off the bench.

March 1, 2018

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Watkins (leg) is considered doubtful for Thursday's matchup against Northwestern, Matt Bortner of ESPN Radio 1450 reports.

Watkins appears on track to miss his second straight game because of the issue, potentially leaving the Nittany Lions shorthanded in the frontcourt as they look to make a deep run into the Big Ten tournament. Penn State may be able to take care of business against Northwestern without him, but could certainly use the big man's assistance against Ohio State should they advance.

February 23, 2018

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Watkins (leg) continues to undergo tests on his knee and will miss Sunday's regular-season finale against Nebraska, reports.

Considering Watkins has been ruled out for Sunday's contest days in advance, it sounds like the big man's issue is more than a day-to-day injury. More information on the issue should surface when the tests are concluded, exposing whether or not he will be able to contribute during the Big Ten tournament.

February 21, 2018

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Watkins will undergo more tests on a leg injury that caused him to miss part of Wednesday's game against Michigan, Ben Jones of StateCollege.com reports.

Watkins exited the contest during the first half with what initially appeared to be a serious issue. While he's not completely out of the woods yet, the fact that the big man was able to rejoin the action bodes well for his status moving forward. The team should update Watkins' status further following the exams Thursday.

February 16, 2018

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Watkins had a double-double with 11 points and 10 boards in Thursday's win over Ohio State.

Tony Carr lit up the scoreboard Thursday, but Watkins did the dirty work on the glass that helped Penn State gain control early and cruise to a blowout win over the eighth-ranked team in the country. Watkins has three double-doubles in the last six games and eight double-doubles in Big Ten play overall. Watkins will be tested Sunday against a formidable Purdue frontcourt that's coming off its third straight loss.
