There is an article at The Crimson that notes that Bryce Aiken may not play any more this season:

- The outlook on the point guard is poor, and he is highly questionable to return back to the court this season, according to Amaker.

“[The knee] is just not progressing the way we need it to or he wanted it to put him in a position to feel comfortable,” said Amaker in a Feb. 28 press conference. “I don’t anticipate that changing as we go down the stretch.” -

Harvard seems to have figured out how to play well without him and it is not worth the risk for him to play in any of the team's remaining games.

Given that they’ve had to adjust already, is it better to have the uncertainty about the rotation and roles if he was going to return removed at this late point?

IMO, I agree about the remaining Ivy games and tournament. I actually think inserting him into the lineup if the team were to get to NCAAs would be a fine idea, because you're gonna be in a matchup where variance is your friend.

My guess is that they wouldn't play in anything but the NIT, and I don't think they'd bring back Aiken for the NIT.
