VILLANOVA, Pa. (AP) -Villanova forward Mouphtaou Yarou is ready to play after being sidelined for several weeks with hepatitis B.
The 6-foot-10 freshman practiced Thursday after he was cleared by doctors. Yarou started the first two games but was sidelined before a November tournament in Puerto Rico.
Coach Jay Wright says he will evaluate Yarou in practice before deciding if he can play in games. Villanova opens its Big East schedule Jan. 2 at Marquette.
Hepatitis B is transmitted through exposure to infected blood and can cause serious liver damage.
