RODMAN MAY PLAY VS. KINGS TONIGHT

Dennis Rodman was expected to suit up and possibly play for the San Antonio Spurs on Friday night against the Sacramento Kings, team officials said.

Rodman has not played since separating his right shoulder in a motorcycle accident March 19. The Spurs confirmed Thursday that Rodman would be taken off the injured list and be in uniform for Friday's game.Rodman took park in an optional workout with several teammates Thursday afternoon.

"I definitely think it (Rodman's return) comes at the right time," forward Sean Elliott said. "We will be excited to see him back in the lineup and see him playing."

The Spurs continued a 15-game winning streak with Rodman out, but they lost consecutive games this week to Portland and Phoenix.

Rodman is averaging 7.3 points and a league-leading 17.4 rebounds per game.
