Blatche In, McGuire out

Mild surprise out here in Vegas, as Dominic McGuire emerged from the locker room of the Thomas & Mack Center in street clothes, and Andray Blatche came out in uniform. The team can only dress four NBA vets, and JaVale McGee, Javaris Crittenton, Nick Young and Blatche will fill those spots.

Meanwhile, this is Blatche's fourth time playing in Summer League, which means he should graduate pretty soon. Before the game against the Cleveland Cavaliers began, McGuire joked about how much Blatche would be shooting, but the veteran demurred.

"I'm just trying to distribute and get in shape," Blatche said with a smile. "I don't need to score, that's for the younger guys."

There were several twinkles in his eye, though, and he's spent the warm-up period launching three pointers, so we'll see.

As for McGuire, he said he would make his Summer League debut tomorrow evening against the Denver Nuggets. And today?

"Help coach," McGuire joked. "Moral support."

(By the way, the dress code doesn't apply in the summer. McGuire's in shorts, as is nearly everyone else in this arena, including all the coaches.)

I'll post in-game updates on Twitter, and be back here after the game with the results and quotes.

Thanks Dan for all of the Wiz summer league updates. I am a huge Wiz/basketball fanatic(win or lose) and I hate this time of year when nothing else is happening. These little tidbits you keep dropping helps to ease my basketball jones.

Keep em coming!
