Blazers’ Pendergraph activated for tonight’s game
Portland Trail Blazers rookie forward Jeff Pendergraph has been activated for tonight’s road game against the Orlando Magic.
Pendergraph missed the first 27 games of the season after undergoing hip surgery.
The former Arizona State standout will join Dante Cunningham, Juwan Howard and Anthony Tolliver as active back-up forwards on the Blazers’ 16-man roster. Travis Outlaw and Nicolas Batum are out with injuries.
Outlaw, who is not expected back until after the 2010 NBA All-Star break, was moved to Portland’s inactive list to make room for Pendergraph.
