Blatche still mending
Wizards forward Andray Blatche has been working out the past few weeks with local trainer Joe Connelly and expects to be ready when camps open. But he admitted last week that the strained right shoulder he suffered last March hasn’t fully recovered. “Shoulder is about 75, 80 percent. It’s still getting better,” Blatche said. “It’s a process. I’m in good shape. By the time I get done working out with Joe and going into training camp, I should be ready.”
Blatche was forced to miss the first week of training camp last season after dealing with a broken right foot. He struggled with his conditioning for most of the season, which was considered a disappointment though he averaged career-highs with 16.8 points and 8.2 rebounds.
“He had a good year, it was just his health. He wasn’t healthy. Anytime you have a player that’s not healthy for the beginning, it’s going to always catch up to him,” Saunders said. “He’s had a very good summer, he’s healthy, as healthy as he can be. He’s coming in with the right attitude. I really believe Andray, how his mind is right now is the most positive it’s been in the time that I’ve been here.”
