Great news if he gets cleared and can provide any quality minutes. Could be huge for us for the Duke game.

Holy smokes. Great news.
Awesome news! Thanks for the heads up!
People need to temper expectations when he comes back. Missing 2-3 weeks of conditioning and practice will hurt. He will provide depth but I wouldn't expect him to just pick up where he left off.
Thanks KillJoy McBuzzKill!!
Fair point, but even a few minutes here and there until he's back into shape is a huge help.
Yep, just something. What Atkins provided against Miami was still absolutely better than nothing.
But if Tobey comes back now he should be at game speed by the AAC tourney.

I think mono is typically a several month battle and physical exertion makes it worse. I don't think he can possibly be 100% before basketball season is over. It's only been a 2-3 weeks since he got it. Best case scenario may be that he's over it in 2 months, and that still makes it April before he's completely healthy.
We're due for a break.Maybe he has a very mild case.
FYI: Kyler Sullivan, a starting back on the UVa soccer team, missed the early part of last season with mono. He returned and played well in a sport that's all about running.
If Jordan can score 45 in the NBA finals with the flu, Mike Tobey can put in 10 solid minutes and drop a few buckets. All about the will to win... ok, and to not pass out on the court.
Trim the fat off your soul.
Flu and mono are completely different. The flu is something you can recover from in a week while mono takes months to recover. I think at this point I'd just expect Tobey to provide some quality minutes in relief of Mitchell. I don't think he'll be able to start and play 30 minutes. They probably have to limit him in practice anyways, so he'd be more of an extra body than an integral part of the gameplan.
Was he ever more than this anyway?
