Steve Blake Cleared For Return To Lakers

Yesterday Steve Blake Tweeted that he would be back in action on Tuesday. Today the Lakers made it official as the medical staff gave Blake the green light to return to action.

Blake hasn’t played since early November after sustaining an abdominal injury that required surgery. Without him the Lakers have utilized Darius Morris and Chris Duhon getting little consistency and production from the two guards off the bench. Of course Blake hasn’t exactly set the world on fire with his play since joining the Lakers two years ago.

Then again Blake has yet to play for Mike D’Antoni so there is hope he’ll be a nice fit for the offensive minded coach’s system.

Regardless of Blake’s production adding more depth is a good thing especially given the amount of ground the Lakers need to make up in order to get into the playoff picture.
