Surprising news for the senior guard who was initially ruled out for the season after her collapse last month.
Slaughter was sidelined initially because a blood clot was found in her lungs and the use of blood-thinners prevents an athlete from competition. The most recent scans taken at the Mayo Clinic were clean of the previously seen blood clot in her lung and no further treatment is needed, therefore clearing her to play.
After her full evaluation, the treating physicians are confident in her clearance at this point. She has returned to team practices and will be able to return to games once deemed ready by the coaching staff.
Happy she's healthy. And that should be a big lift for the team in conference play. Go Cards!
