SAN FRANCISCO -- Al Horford took part in practice at the University of San Francisco on Friday and believes he will return to the lineup Saturday against the Warriors after taking a hit to the head at the end of Tuesday's loss against the Lakers.

Horford already missed a game due to a concussion earlier this season so the team sat him out for Wednesday's game against the Clippers as a precaution.

"I just didn’t have anything," Horford said after today's practice. "Everything cleared up and I didn’t have a concussion. We were just trying to be ... the team was trying to protect me just due to the history of everything but I’m just happy I’m able to go through practice, workouts and be fine."
