San Diego State senior Dwayne Polee II attended practice on Friday.

However, it could be several weeks to decide if/when Polee II will return to the lineup for the Aztecs, according to Mark Zeigler of the San Diego Union-Tribune.

“I’m sure that it is (frustrating), but he’s smart enough to know he has to be patient and wait until he gets clearance from the experts,” San Diego State head coach Steve Fisher said on Friday.

On Monday night, about midway through the first half against UC Riverside, Polee collapsed and was down on the floor for roughly 15 minutes. He was taken to the hospital and was discharged the following day after undergoing a series of tests.

“I’m not even worried about the basketball part yet,” Fisher added. “We’re so thankful that he’s able to be here with us. He’s under great care and we’ll be very cautious on each of the steps. … I don’t think there is a timetable, but I would say more on the longer end.”

San Diego State finishes non-conference play on Saturday against NAIA opponent, San Diego Christian. The Aztecs begin their Mountain West schedule at home on New Year’s Eve against Air Force.

The 6-foot-7 Polee is averaging 8.4 points and 2.8 rebounds per game.
