CSU guard Prentiss Nixon has been cleared to play for "limited minutes" in tonight's game against Nevada, sources confirmed to 9News.

The Rams leading scorer has been sidelined with a left ankle sprain since January 17.

The 6-foot-1, 185-pound guard suffered the injury after landing on the foot of an Air Force player with 17 seconds left in their 76-71 loss to the Falcons.

The junior averages a team-high 17.9 points along with 3.2 rebounds. He is the team leader in 3-pointers (50) and free throws made (82) and attempted (93).
