Syracuse's Paschal Chukwu fully cleared for practice following eye surgery

The big man is already back on the court with teammates.

Good news came for the Syracuse Orange basketball program on Thursday, when it was revealed that center Paschal Chukwu had received full medical clearance and was back to practicing with the team. CBS Sports/Fan Rag’s Jon Rothstein reported the news, which came from an Orange spokesperson.

Chukwu transferred in from Providence in 2015, then sat a year before suiting up in 2016-17. In six games last season, he scored just eight points, but also collected 26 rebounds.

He was hit in his right eye during the Holy Cross game, a blow that sped up his retina detaching. At one point during the season, he couldn’t see out of that eye. Chuwku has since had surgery and regained full vision out of both eyes.

Going into his fourth collegiate season (though he’ll technically be considered a junior), we can expect to see more of him on the floor for SU. With Tyler Roberson and Tyler Lydon both gone, Chukwu and Taurean Thompson are the only forwards on the roster to have played any minutes last year. Matthew Moyer is also back, but was injured and didn’t play in 2016-17.
