Wizards Insider: April 1, 2007 - April 7, 2007

Limping to the finish

I guess it's possible to call what is happening at the bottom of the Eastern Conference a "race" but that would be generous. The Wizards are pretty much locked in sixth place but have lost three of four and are still obviously trying to adjust to life without Agent...

Life without Gilbert begins

Well, Gilbert's locker was pretty much empty before the game tonight but other than that, and the sight of Caron Butler in a cream suit, nothing felt all that different. The fellas went through their usual pre-game routines, Eddie Jordan had his usual pre-game chat (wait, have to interupt...

Arenas Out 2-3 Months

Wizards guard Gilbert Arenas will be out two to three months with a lateral left meniscus tear in his knee. The injury will require arthroscopic surgery, which will be performed today at Sibley Memorial Hospital by team doctor Marc Connell. The Wizards (39-35) have eight games remaining in the...

Gilbert's MRI will determine status

Here's what I know about Agent Zero and the sprained left knee he suffered in the first quarter tonight: he's undergoing an MRI today and the results of said MRI will determine his status. He was not putting a ton of weight on that leg when he limped off...

Arenas out with sprained left knee

Gilbert Arenas will not return to tonight's game after going down with a sprained left knee late in the first quarter. Arenas, who was benched at the start of the game for missing a mandatory pre-game shootaround, went down when Charlotte forward Gerald Wallace fell into the side of...

Arenas leaves with possible leg injury

Two minutes after checking into the game, Gilbert Arenas limped off the court and appeared to be favoring his left knee. He went down holding the knee area after Charlotte's Gerald Wallace fell into him awkwardly while trying to make a reverse layup late in the first quarter. Arenas...

Gilbert misses shootaround and won't start but will play

The starting lineups for tonight's game were just released and here's a shocker: Antonio Daniels is a starter at guard in place of Gilbert Arenas, who, according to the team, is healthy and ready to play but missed this evening's shootaround. Players were supposed to be on the court...

No defending that defense

That was as bad a defensive performance as the Wizards have turned in all season. The Charlotte Bobcats did whatever they wanted, exactly how they wanted last night in cruising to a 122-102 win over the playoff- bound Washington Wizards. Not good. I watched the entire debacle unfould from...

Charlotte will be key

It's interesting when you consider that the Charlotte Bobcats could have as much to do with the race for the Southeast Division title as the Wizards and Miami Heat. The Win, in town to play the Bocats tonight, host Charlotte tomorrow night in one of those weird, back-to-back sets and...

Butler Done For The Season

MILWAUKEE - The Wizards were dealt a major blow on Sunday when Caron Butler fractured his right hand that will force him to miss the rest of the season. Butler sustained the injury while trying to contest a Ruben Patterson dunk with 6 minutes, 28 seconds left the third quarter...

Haywood Is Benched

As expected, Coach Eddie Jordan benched center Brendan Haywood in favor of Etan Thomas for today's game against the Milwaukee Bucks. Thomas, who turned 29 on Sunday, hadn't started since spraining his ankle against the Houston Rockets on Dec. 9. The Wizards had gone 22-9 with the starting lineup of...

No TV

Michael Lee is with the team in Milwaukee today and I'm getting a couple of days off. Still, it would be nice to watch the game but it's not on TV because of the NBA's stupid rule regarding ABC's exclusive rights. The network is showing Phoenix/Dallas at 3:30. The...
