Fitzgerald (knee) and the rest of the ailing Gophers have been cleared for full-contact activities, Jon Rothstein of CBS Sports reports.

Fitzgerald is heading into his final season of collegiate eligibility, but injuries have so far derailed his first few months of organized activities with his new team. Coach Richard Pitino announced Monday that the entire roster has been cleared for full contact, however, which means Fitzgerald should be ready to go for any upcoming exhibition contests. Fitzgerald was never a major producer during his time at Texas A&M, as his best numbers came across 24 appearances in his freshman campaign in 2013-14, where he averaged 7.3 points and 2.3 rebounds. It's difficult to measure his progression over all that time on the shelf, but he will certainly have to earn his keep on this year's Minnesota squad. Amir Coffey and Jordan Murphy will serve as the starting forwards, with the 6-8 Fitzgerald projected to be one of the first options off the bench.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Fitzgerald (knee) is currently on a contact restriction and has yet to be cleared for full activities, the Star Tribune's Marcus Fuller reports.

Fitzgerald missed all of last season due to a torn ACL and meniscus, and was out the previous season because of NCAA transfer rules, so the team continues to take it easy with the junior. Head coach Richard Pitino said that the Gophers will have to be "extremely patient" with him, as he's expected to take the place of Eric Curry, who suffered a season-ending knee injury a couple months ago.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Fitzgerald (knee) is participating in team drills but has not yet been cleared for full contact, The Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

Fitzgerald has been out for two full seasons after he sat out a year due to the NCAA's transfer rules, and later suffered full ACL and meniscus tears. Understandably, the Gophers are taking it slow with bringing him back, but he'll eventually have to grow into a meaningful role to help compensate for the season-ending knee injury to Eric Curry. When fully healthy, Fitzgerald is expected to serve as the primary backup to power forward Jordan Murphy, though he could see time at the three as well. The Gophers open up their regular season Nov. 10 against USC Upstate, followed by an early-season challenge in Providence.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Fitzgerald (ACL) is expected to be cleared for practice, CBS Sports reports. The 6-8 forward has not played since 2014-15 when he was on Texas A&M.

After losing forward Eric Curry to a torn ACL at the beginning of September, the Gophers received some good news in terms of frontcourt depth. The forward has not suited up for Minnesota, but could play quality minutes if he can prove he is healthy. The team is relatively thin behind Amir Coffey and Jordan Murphy.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Fitzgerald has been granted a sixth year of eligibility, GopherSports.com reports.

Fitzgerald transferred from Texas A&M to Minnesota following the 2014-15 season and had to sit out a year due to the NCAA transfer rules. He then went on to suffer a torn ACL the subsequent year, forcing him to miss a second consecutive campaign. Fitzgerald is expected to be cleared for full contact in June, and after the NCAA ruled to grant him an extra year of eligibility, he'll now be able to suit up for the Gophers in both of the next two seasons. While a two-year layoff makes it hard to predict what kind of role he'll take on right away, Fitzgerald should at least offer additional depth in the frontcourt. In his final season with Texas A&M, Fitzgerald was just a minor contributor, averaging 3.5 points and 1.6 rebounds across 9.6 minutes.

October 7, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Fitzgerald suffered an ACL and meniscus tear during Thursday's practice and has been ruled out for the entire 2016-17 season, Jeff Goodman of ESPN.com reports.

Fitzgerald, who sat out the 2015-16 season following his transfer from Texas A&M, will now be confined to the sideline for a second straight campaign, this time due to injury. Minnesota was already facing an uphill battle to make it back to the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 2013, and the loss of Fitzgerald will only make things more difficult.

October 25, 2015

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Fitzgerald will sit out the 2015-16 season due to ineligibility, gophersports.com reports.

Fitzgerald transferred from Texas A&M during the offseason, and was deemed ineligible to play during the 2015-16 season. He will have two years of on-court eligibility left.

May 26, 2015

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Fitzgerald will transfer from Texas A&M to Minnesota next season, Marcus Fuller of the Pioneer Press reports.

In his sophomore season at Texas A&M, Fitzgerald averaged 3.5 points and 1.6 rebounds over just 9.6 minutes in 25 games. He will have to sit out the 2015-16 season because of transfer rules, but will now look to make more of a contribution at his new school with two years of eligibility remaining.
