Milwaukee guard Luke Ridnour has returned to the Bucks' active roster after being sidelined with back spasms.

Milwaukee plays at the Orlando Magic on Friday night.

Ridnour was injured during Monday's practice and did not accompany the team to Toronto on Wednesday night. He is averaging 10.1 points and 5.3 assists per game this season.

Milwaukee began the day 3 1/2 games behind Detroit and Chicago for the final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference. The Bucks were already without guard and leading-scorer Michael Redd and center Andrew Bogut.

Redd tore knee ligaments on Jan. 24 and is out for the season. Bogut has not played since Jan. 31 because of a sore back. He will be reevaluated next week.
