Northwestern freshman center Chier Ajou and freshman forward Sanjay Lumpkin have been granted medical hardship waivers and will have four years of eligibility remaining, the school announced on Wednesday.

Ajou, a 7-foot-2, 235-pound center, played in seven games and averaged 1.1 points and 4.3 rebounds last season. He suffered a knee injury last season.

Lumpkin, a 6-foot-6, 195-pound forward, played in three games and averaged 1.0 points and 6.5 minutes last season. He suffered a wrist injury last season.

The Wildcats are expected to return 12 players from last season's roster for the 2013-2014 season. Northwestern, which went 13-19 overall last season, was without Ajou, Lumpkin, junior guard JerShon Cobb (academically ineligible) and senior forward Drew Crawford (shoulder) for a majority of the season. Crawford previously received a medical hardship waiver for next season.
