Lance Thomas returned to the court on Friday after missing nearly 3 weeks with an ankle injury. He says his ankle is now fully healthy. But he's still feeling the effects of plantar fasciitis. Thomas says there are two stages of discomfort from he fasciitis: soreness and acute pain. He says the acute pain is not present at the moment but the soreness comes and goes, which is OK. "I can play through soreness," he says, adding, "it felt good to wear have my jersey back on."
