Quentin Snider, who has missed the last six games for Louisville, has been cleared to return to practice and is expected to play Saturday against Miami, according to the Louisville Courier-Journal.

The point guard hasn’t played for three weeks after being sidelined with a hip flexor.

“We were very cautious with him,” Louisville coach Rick Pitino said on his radio show Wednesday, per the Courier-Journal.

The Cardinals went 4-2 with Snider on the sideline, including Monday’s 71-55 loss to No. 12 Virginia in which both Deng Adel and Mangok Mathiang were suspended for Louisville. They are slated to be back to face the Hurricanes.

Snider is averaging 12.1 points, 4.0 assists and 2.6 rebounds per game this season.
