Aaron Dotson, Utah's projected starting small forward, could be getting healthy after missing almost a month due to a stress fracture in his foot.
The junior hasn't been ruled out of playing this weekend, although it's unlikely. The more realistic goal has been set at possibly returning next week for Utah's road trip at SMU and Texas State.
Dotson when healthy could be Utah's best player off the dribble. He gives the team another scorer, and another option on the perimeter.
"We're getting excited, but we're also cautious," Utes head coach Larry Krystkowiak said. "He gives us a really good option. He's been gone so long that it's kind of like he hasn't been with us. Then you look up and you see this scorer getting ready to return. We're excited."
