Backup center Etan Thomas was back in uniform after missing the last two practices and a game while traveling to the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn., for a routine checkup on his heart.

Thomas missed all of last season after having a leaky aortic valve repaired in November 2007 but made a full recovery and hasn't suffered any complications this season.

"It wasn't anything like that," said Thomas, who traveled to Minnesota on Sunday and had his checkup Monday. "It was just to make sure everything was still doing good in there. But it was fine. Everything was good."

Thomas was put through an ultrarigorous stress test, which began at 7:30 Monday morning and lasted until roughly 4:30 p.m.

"They had me doing everything," Thomas said. "Running, everything. Just moving from station to station."

Thomas met up with the Wizards in Detroit on Tuesday evening and went through the team's shootaround Wednesday morning but was inactive for the game since he hadn't practiced. Coach Ed Tapscott said Thomas would be active when the Wizards play Friday.


"My instructions to him were to get the forwards off first, and then he can start to look for his opportunities as well. I'm not asking a guy with stripes to turn to spots."

- Ed Tapscott on his instructions to point guard Mike James, who moved into the team's starting lineup Wednesday for the first time since the Wizards acquired him


7 Different starting lineups the Washington Wizards have sported this season - three different centers (Thomas, JaVale McGee and Andray Blatche) and four different starting point guards (Antonio Daniels, Juan Dixon, Dee Brown and Mike James). The only constants have been forwards Antawn Jamison and shooting guard DeShawn Stevenson.
