Team GB basketball pair Dan Clark and Mike Lenzly have both been passed fit to participate in the London 2012 games.
Both players picked up injury scares just over a week before their opening game, but coach Chris Finch can breathe a sigh of relief after both were given clearance to play, The Guardian reports.
Starting guard Lenzly tore a calf muscle in last Thursday’s defeat to the United States, while Clark suffered a sprained ankle while playing against Tunisia in a warm-up game at the weekend. Friday was the deadline given to Great Britain if they wished to bring in replacements for the pair had they not recovered, but both were passed fit and are expected to feature in the Games.
“Thanks to some outstanding work by our medical team at our dedicated training base, both Dan and Mike have been cleared to compete in the Olympics," said British Basketball’s performance director Chris Spice.
"Both players have worked tirelessly on their rehabilitation and should be congratulated on their efforts."
Given the lack of recovery time, it is not yet known if Lenzly or Clark will feature in great Britian’s opening game against Russia on Sunday.
