Wizards F Blatche to be eased back into lineup
Washington Wizards forward Andray Blatche will be eased back into the lineup starting Saturday against the Cleveland Cavaliers.
Blatche returned to practice Thursday for the first time in more than a month. He had been sidelined since the end of January with a strained left calf muscle.
The 25-year-old Blatche has appeared in only 17 games, averaging 10.3 points and 7.1 rebounds.
With his production having dipped markedly from last season’s career-high 16.8 points-per-game average, Blatche has been the frequent target of boo-birds by Wizards fans.
