There’s good news on the injury front regarding Dayton Flyers forward Kostas Antetokounmpo.
The 6-foot-10 redshirt freshman, who sat out last season as a NCAA partial qualifier, was cleared for full-contact practices this week, according to a Dayton spokesman, and is “good to go.” He has been practicing all week.
Antetokounmpo suffered a bone bruise and a hyper-extended knee playing for Greece’s U-20 national team in the summer. He was training with the Flyers on a non-contact basis when practice began Sept. 29.
Earlier this month, Antetokounmpo told WHIO’s Mike Hartsock, “I feel like I should be ready for the opener (Nov. 10 against Ball State). I’d like to be ready for the scrimmage but we need to see what the doctors say and how I’m doing until then.”
