Tony Wroten can play basketball at Garfield — for now.
Wroten, a 6-foot-5 point guard who is the top sophomore in the nation according to ESPN, won a temporary injunction against his Seattle school.
He is allowed to go to school and play basketball while the family pursues a lawsuit against the Seattle School District. A hearing date is scheduled for Jan. 21.
Garfield expelled Wroten claiming that surveillance showed that he lived in Renton and not Seattle.
Wroten has been out of school since Dec. 5 and hasn't played a game for the Bulldogs.
