Texas A&M guard Manny Obaseki hasn’t played in a game since Jan. 4 for the Aggies after suffering a hand injury.

But, recently, he’s been dressing out for games. He hasn’t made his official return to the court, however.

That could change this week (the final week of the SEC regular season). Per college hoops insider Jon Rothstein, Obaseki has been cleared to return to all basketball-related activities:

Obaseki has appeared in 14 games for the Aggies this season, but has not started any of them. He averages 6.9 points, 1.7 rebounds and 1.3 assists in 16.9 minutes per contest.

The Aggies play at Ole Miss on Tuesday night before hosting Alabama on Saturday in a game that could decide the No. 1 seed in the SEC Tournament.

What this means for the Aggies

Adding depth at the end of the regular season is never a bad thing. Obaseki is a very talented player and can provide a spark off of the bench.

The Aggies are trying to lock down a top-2 seed in the SEC Tournament, which they can do with a win on Tuesday night. Anything Obaseki can give them this week and into the conference tourney will be a big bonus for Buzz Williams’ squad.
