Andray Blatche will play tonight against the Cavaliers

Howard Smith-USA TODAY Sports

Last week Jason Kidd told the media that Andray Blatche would miss four games for the Nets due to "personal reasons." We were given no information beyond that. So, here we are "four games later" and the Nets have announced that Blatche will return to the lineup for the Nets and play tonight against the Cleveland Cavaliers.

The Nets have gone 2-2 without Blatche, including a road win on Thursday night against the Oklahoma City Thunder. Blatche is averaging 11.6 points and 5.9 rebounds in 23 minutes per game.

It's still unknown what the "personal reasons" were for Blatche's absence. There is no indication that he will have any restrictions tonight.
