Steve Blake has been given medical clearance to begin running on a treadmill. While not earth shattering news it is one step on the road to recovery. Currently rookie Andrew Goudelock is looking more and more comfortable in his expanded role since Blake’s rib injury back on January 10th.
As it stands there is no definitive timetable for Blake’s return. Initially the Lakers thought this would be a three to four week process. If that still holds true Blake could be back in a matter of days.
However that seems highly unlikely if he’s only now been given clearance to run in place.
