It's been over five years since Andris Biedrins inked a 6-year $54 million contract with Golden State back in July 2008, an investment that only reaped rewards for once season for the Warriors.
Five frustrating seasons later, Biedrins is in the final year of the deal as a member of the Utah Jazz, needing to show something in order to remain in the league beyond 2013-14. That opportunity may not be far off, with the news Wednesday that the veteran center returned to practice after missing a month from a severe ankle sprain. But will he have an impact once he's able to play?
