Still awaiting clearance Aiken (foot) continues to await clearance for a return to basketball activities, Jon Rothstein of CBS Sports reports.
Impact Aiken was originally expected to gain clearance at some point in November, but that has yet to happen nine days into the month. As Seton Hall's non-conference schedule begins to take shape, Aiken should be considered questionable for the Nov. 25 opener against Withrop. The Pirates are also scheduled for a potential resume-boosting game against Louisville just days later, and would likely be in dire straits without their best ball handler. Candidates to replace Aiken are looking slim. Takai Molson was a double-digit scorer with Canisius two seasons ago, but did most of his damage from the wing. It's a similar profile for the 6-6 Myles Cale, but he at least has more experience in the offense. Shavar Reynolds could be called upon, but he's known primarily for his defensive prowess. There's also three-star freshman Jakari Long, who is more of a natural point guard, but the most likely outcome if Aiken is unavailable is some sort of committee.
