Potomac (Md.) guard Dion Wiley has been hampered by a foot sprain since before his much-anticipated matchup against fellow future Maryland guard Romelo Trimble on Dec. 21 in the DMV Tip-Off Classic.

After scoring 11 points in that game, a 78-72 loss to Trimble's Bishop O’Connell team, Wiley emerged from the locker room with a heavily iced and bandaged left foot. He was forced to sit out Potomac's contests over the New Year's holiday.

But now Wiley is slated to return, he told Comcast SportsNet via text message on Monday, ready for his team's matchup against Largo. Potomac was originally scheduled to face Largo on Friday night, but inclement weather pushed the game until tonight, Monday.

The senior tells CSN that he is "like 85%" but expects to play tonight. Tip is at 7 p.m. in Upper Marlboro, Md.

Wiley, a dead-eye shooter from the perimeter and No. 49 overall prospect in the country according to Rivals.com, is part of Maryland's four-man 2014 recruiting class.
