    Oregon graduate-transfer L.J. Figueroa was granted an immediate eligibility waiver by the NCAA and will play Friday night as No. 21 Oregon (1-0) faces Seton Hall (1-2) in Omaha, NE.

    Last season, Figueroa led St. John’s in scoring with 14.6 points and had 4.6 rebounds, 2.1 assists and 1.9 steals in 32 games played.

    Figueroa, a 6-foot-6, 195-pound wing, announced his transfer to Oregon on June 20.

    Figueroa’s waiver was granted just one day after it was announced that point guard Will Richardson will miss the next six weeks following thumb surgery.

    Oregon is still awaiting an eligibility decision for Aaron Estrada, who transferred from Saint Peter’s.
