The Wizards had hoped to have Andray Blatche around for at least the last two, or possibly three, games of Western Conference trip. The plan was for Blatche to possibly join the team in Denver, but Coach Flip Saunders said on Friday that Blatche would remain in Washington to rehabilitate his sprained right shoulder. Blatche hasn’t played since getting hurt in the first quarter of a loss to Milwaukee on March 8 and has missed the past seven games. Nick Young will make his return after sitting out five games with a bone bruise in his left knee. Saunders said that he plans on using Young off the bench. “He’ll be limited, but he’ll definitely help our bench.”
