The Mad Ants return to Memorial Coliseum on Tuesday for the first time in 2 1/2 weeks, when they face Erie.
It may take a while longer for the return of Luke Harangody.
Even though the 6-foot-8 forward from Notre Dame practiced early Monday afternoon, he may not be in the lineup Tuesday.
"We'll see how he feels in the morning," Ants coach Duane Ticknor said Monday afternoon. "It's probably more of a long shot."
Harangody, the team's leading scorer (20.1 average) and rebounder (12.3), has missed four of the Mad Ants' last five games with a sore right knee.
After sitting out a loss to Sioux Falls, he returned to play against Rio Grande Valley but left the floor with nine minutes remaining in the third quarter. He finished with four points and six rebounds, and he hasn't played since.
As a member of the Cleveland Cavaliers, Harangody underwent arthroscopic surgery on his right knee Nov. 16, 2012, and was released shortly thereafter by the Cavs. Since joining the Mad Ants (16-17) in late December, Harangody has helped the team to a 10-6 record in games he has played.
"I think the biggest thing for me right now is to get healthy and be 100 percent," Harangody said before Monday's practice. "I haven't been 100 percent yet. I may have come back from the surgery a little too quickly, but I was feeling good, though. Certainly it got harder and harder each game after that."
