Bearcat Insider has learned that Tyree Evans, a 6-3 shooting guard from Winchendon (Mass.) Prep, will finally be returning to play after a month-long hiatus.
The Bearcat signee has not seen action since January 10th because of an illness that required surgery. An infection further complicated the problems.
However, he has now been cleared this afternoon by a doctor, meaning he will be returning to action immediately. It's unknown how many minutes he will play at first, as he gets back into shape because of missing over a month.
We have confirmed with Evans that he is indeed cleared to play.
"Yes, I just got cleared by the doctor today," Evans said late this afternoon. "So, i'm good to go."
Bearcat Insider will continue to track Evans' progress throughout the remainder of the season.
