As expected, the Nets will be at full-strength tonight when they play the Portland Trail Blazers. Shaun Livingston, who injured his tailbone against the Warriors this past weekend and missed Sunday night's game against the Lakers will return the starting lineup.
Meanwhile, Marcus Thornton, who has missed the team's last two games because of food poisoning, is expected to make his Nets debut tonight.

For the Blazers, LaMarcus Aldridge is currently considered questionable and expected to be a game-time decision.
