Virginia Tech guard Chris Clarke cleared to resume basketball activities after knee injury in February

The Virginia Tech basketball team received some good news on Thursday regarding the status of guard Chris Clarke.

Clarke, who tore the ACL in his left knee in February during a game against Virginia, posted on his Twitter account that he was cleared to resume basketball activities.

The injury saw a strong season for the junior guard cut short.

Before his injury, Clarke had played in 24 games and made 19 starts, averaging 11.4 points and 7.3 rebounds, and 3.3 assists per game prior to being sidelined. Clarke would end up tied with Zach LeDay for the team’s lead in rebounds and is the team’s top returning scorer after the departures of both LeDay and fellow redshirt senior Seth Allen.

Although Clarke is cleared, it may take a while for him to be fully worked into the lineup. It is not known if he will play in the season opener against Detroit Mercy on Friday evening.

The Hokies’ contest against the Titans is set for 6pm ET at Cassell Coliseum in Blacksburg, Va. The game will be shown on ACC Network Extra and streamed live on WatchESPN.com.
