Wesley Matthews returned to practice Friday. Sort of.

The Trail Blazers’ starting shooting guard, who missed parts of two workouts this week because of an irregular heartbeat, returned on a limited basis Friday, when the team went through a roughly two-hour workout at the practice facility in Tualatin.

Matthews participated in a few up-tempo defensive drills early in practice and also worked into some “live” half-court action. But he did not play in any full-court scrimmages. It was a calculated first step by the Blazers’ medical staff to ease Matthews back into practice, and he reported no setbacks afterward.
