Faried’s lower back had locked up during a game against Brooklyn on Feb. 24, and he knew after the game he had a problem. “It was some of the worst pain I ever felt,” said Faried, who returned to action Thursday night against the Clippers after a nine-game absence. “I’m just happy to be able to walk and jump and do the normal things like sit down normally. I’m glad to be able to do a light sprint or a jog and not have to worry about my back flaring up. I’m happy to be able to do those little things.”
