Justice Sueing is back.

The sixth-year forward who missed all but two games last year due to an abdominal injury has received full medical clearance to return to all basketball activities for Ohio State, per a report by CBS Sports' Jon Rothstein Tuesday.

Ohio State head coach Chris Holtmann said on Aug. 1 Sueing was still "somewhat limited" due to injury, but was expected to return to action by the start of September.

Neither Sueing nor sixth-year forward Seth Towns, who missed all of the 2021-22 season after undergoing preseason back surgery, played in the Buckeyes' two exhibition wins over the Egyptian and Puerto Rican national teams in the Bahamas earlier this month. Towns was also expected to receive clearance by the start of September but has not yet fully returned, per the report.

Sueing averaged 10.7 points and 5.5 rebounds a game while starting all 31 games for Ohio State in 2020-21. Towns, a former Ivy League Player of the Year at Harvard before transferring to Ohio State, averaged 3.8 points a game in 25 appearances for the Buckeyes two seasons ago.
