Andray Blatche was back practicing with the Nets on Thursday, having recovered from the back spasms that limited his activity a day earlier. But Josh Childress wasn't on the floor, dealing with a sore Achilles. Avery Johnson said that he hopes to have Childress back on the floor on Friday, when the team will shoot around in the morning and play a simulated game at night.
Tyshawn Taylor was again limited, still dealing with a strained right quad and isn't likely to return until next week.
