Shaun Livingston returned to Nets practice Tuesday and is a game-time decision for their Wednesday night game against the Portland Trail Blazers, the team announced today.

Livingston went down with a hard fall Friday night in the first quarter of the team’s game against the Golden State Warriors. He tried to return to the game but was officially ruled out with a bruised tailbone. He did not play Saturday against the Los Angeles Lakers.

Livingston has played in 53 games this season, averaging 7.7 points, 3.2 rebounds, and 3.1 assists in 24.8 minutes per game. His 31 starts are the most of his career since a gruesome knee injury kept him out of the NBA for 20 months between February 2007 and October 2008.
