Los Angeles Lakers guard Steve Blake practiced with the team Saturday and could return to game action as soon as next week.
“He’s going to play pretty soon,” Lakers coach Mike D’Antoni said when asked about Blake after practice. “I don’t know when that is, but he’s working his way back. I think he wants to get in some running (Saturday) so we’ll see how that goes. Everyday will be a test for him. If he keeps passing those barriers, then you’ll see him on the court pretty soon.”
After practice, Blake took to Twitter and was specific about his return: “The #RoadtoRecovery was long, but I’m back for the @Lakers Tuesday night #GoLakers”
