Wizards F Blatche back from calf injury

Washington Wizards forward Andray Blatche will return against

the Cleveland Cavaliers after missing more than a month with a

strained left calf.

Blatche is not in the Wizards’ starting lineup for Saturday’s

game, but coach Randy Wittman says he will play. Wittman says he

expects Blatche’s playing time to be limited to short stretches as

he works on his conditioning.

Blatche is averaging 10.3 points and 7.1 rebounds in 17 games

this season. He hasn’t played since injuring his calf on Jan. 28

against Charlotte.
