WASHINGTON -- Washington Wizards forward Andray Blatche will return against the Cleveland Cavaliers after missing more than a month with a strained left calf.

Blatche is not in the Wizards' starting lineup for Saturday's game, but coach Randy Wittman says he will play. Wittman says he expects Blatche's playing time to be limited to short stretches as he works on his conditioning.

Blatche is averaging 10.3 points and 7.1 rebounds in 17 games this season. He hasn't played since injuring his calf on Jan. 28 against Charlotte.
