FIT-AGAIN duo Maurice Walker and Andrew Bachman are expected to feature in Worcester Wolves’ final two games of the regular British Basketball League season.
Walker has returned to full training as he battles back from a hamstring problem which has kept him out of Wolves’ last four matches.
Although admitting the power forward was “not 100 per cent fit” head coach Paul James insisted it was “important” he got some minutes under his belt before the play-offs.
Wolves face Sheffield Sharks at the University of Worcester Arena on Friday (7.30pm) before visiting champions Leicester Riders on Sunday (4pm).
“Mo has returned to training this week,” James said. “He is still not 100 per cent fit but the fact he is out there moving up and down the court is a real positive for us.
“He might play some part this weekend as it is important he gets some sort of game-time going into the play-offs.
“We will try to get him out on the court in one or both of the games.”
James said small forward Bachman was also “working extremely hard” to return to action.
The Canadian has not played since Wolves’ defeat to Sheffield in early February as he sustained a torn calf in practice.
“He is moving a bit gingerly and not reacting as quickly as he should be,” James said.
“But that’s going to come with time and he is working extremely hard to get back and be a part of what we have got going right now.
“We have been playing some great basketball without them so we don’t want to disrupt the flow we have had over the last few weeks.
“But they are big players for us so if we can move them into that rotation and they can make an impact it would make life a lot easier for everybody.”
