Curtis Washington has returned to practice with Georgia State’s men’s basketball team and Kevin Ware could return Thursday, coach Ron Hunter said on Wednesday.
Washington, a 6-foot-10 center/forward, hadn’t practiced with the team since suffering an injury during the summer. He averaged 6.9 points and 5.4 rebounds per game last season while blocking 78 shots, third most in a season in school history.
Ware, who transferred from Louisville earlier this year, suffered an ankle sprain during practice two weeks ago. Ware is expected to be the team’s starting point guard, replacing Devonta White, who graduated.
The team, Sun Belt champs last year, will host Georgia College in an exhibition game on Monday at the Sports Arena.
