Andray Blatche back from personal absence Saturday night

By Matt Moore | NBA writer

Nets forward Andray Blatche has missed the past four games due to "personal reasons" but is set to return Saturday night vs. the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Blatche had missed the last four games for "personal reasons." He declined to go into specifics as to what those reasons were.

"Now would it be personal if I tell you?" Blatche said before Saturday's morning shootaround. "It's personal reasons. It's over with. The most important thing is I'm back out here playing with my team. That's what's most important right now. And that's something I've been looking forward to since I've been gone."

Well, then.

The Nets have won two straight, and are riding the most momentum they've had all season after a comeback win in Oklahoma City. Getting Blatche back does a lot for their depth and frontcourt rotations, despite his penchant for poor decision-making.

Blatche is averaging 11.6 points and 5.9 rebounds per game for Brooklyn this season.
