NEW HAVEN, Conn. (WTNH)

Yale men’s basketball player Makai Mason hasn’t played in nearly two years after suffering a serious foot injury prior to the 2016-17 season.

Sources tell News 8 Sports that Mason will make his return this weekend, likely Saturday at Harvard.

Mason practiced with the Bulldogs on Wednesday but the team would not confirm its point guards return to the line-up.

Mason was the teams leading scorer during its Ivy League Championship season and NCAA Tournament run in 2015-16.
