Ratliff returns to practice with the Lakers
Theo Ratliff, who on Nov. 17 underwent successful arthroscopic surgery to perform a partial meniscectomy on his left knee, returned to practice on Sunday.
Ratliff hasn't played since Nov. 9.
In eight games, he's averaging 0.3 points, 1.6 rebounds, and 0.6 blocks a game.
"He was out there for most of the practice. Because we have four centers he wasn't on the floor all the time, but he did pretty well," coach Phil Jackson said.
"Everything everyone else did. We played some full court, played some half court, we ran some transition things. He did pretty good."
