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 his leg while attempting a layup. Arenas is the third Wizard who has gone down with a sprained left knee this season.
Antawn Jamison missed 12 games with the injury and second-year forward Andray Blatche is currently out after spraining his knee in a loss against the Clippers on March 24. Antonio Daniels started in place of Arenas tonight. Arenas had not missed a game all season.

Hated to see Gil go down. The curse continues. Etan just knocked Gerald Wallace to the floor. About time one of our big knocks someone down. Way to go Etan!!

Wow, The blows just keep coming! I've got a question, what is that thing that Gerald Wallace wears under his jersey? Are they shoulder pads? Are there shoulder pads in basketball?

is it a coincidence that the wiz play defense when Gilbert is NOT on the floor? we need to stop blaming other players for not playing defense, when the REAL problem on defense is our biggest superstar.

the sooner A-Zero learns to play D, the sooner this team will be one to be reckoned with....until then, first round will be the furthest we advance.

At least someone hasn't said trade Arenas yet. I figured we'd see that since the Wizards are ahead by one at the half.

Gerald Wallace has a cutoff t-shirt on under his uni. I also agree with the assessment that we play better d without Gil on the floor.

EJ needs to DEMAND defense from Gil. Some players need to be push to take it to the next level and Gil, as far as his d, is one of them!

as evidenced by tonight, we still have no problem putting up points when A-Zero isn't on the floor. therefore, i hope GIL, EJ, and every other person on this team can realize that without 2/3 of the big 3 on the offensive end, we can put up 100. this means that Gil doesn't need to average 30 freakin points a game. he can AFFORD to expend more energy on the defensive end and sacrifice the numbers. when guys on the team see the superstar arenas pullin his shorts up gettin ready to play some sick D, they'll surely "follow the leader" or else....

... and yet we are still losing to the Bobcats, who are shooting 48% against us.

Of course, if we lose by less than 20, The Haters will say losing Gilbert was an improvement.

Posted by: Gack | April 4, 2007 9:02 PM | Report abuse

...pardon me, they're shooting 51% against us and have matched their largest lead.

We are *definitely* better off without Gilbert.

Posted by: Gack | April 4, 2007 9:04 PM | Report abuse

gack,
i'm not a Gil hater, nor do I think this team is any better overall without Gil. i'm merely saying that Gil's style of playing is not condusive (sp?) to playing D. if this team is going to improve as a whole (and a major portion of that is improving Defensively), Gil will have to change as a basketball player. many times, Gil comes down the court w/ the ball (duties of a point guard), doesn't pass.....but drives and misses a layup or a jumper. this opens up for fast breaks at the other end, cause our point guard is the last line of defense.
as i say this, the wiz move the ball around, and have come back from a 7 point deficit with good shot selection to take the lead w/ 2 Deshawn 3 pointers.

i'm not in any way attacking Gil. but I am critical of his defense, because Jamison (who sucks at D also) gets the brunt of the blame for D-miscues, when in fact he's being posted up on by players bigger than him. Jamison undersized for a PF, and too slow for a SF. EJ has to find a scheme that will fit for the personnel he has, and has failed to do so repeatedly.

Posted by: surprise!! | April 4, 2007 9:11 PM | Report abuse

Imagine that. Once Gilby left after blowing out his knee, Les BouleS are actually playing like a team both on the offensive and defensive ends. A lot more hustle too. Antonio Daniels turning into Nash/Kidd with his assist totals. Maybe Gilby's blown knee is a blessing in disguise.

Posted by: DC Man88 | April 4, 2007 9:14 PM | Report abuse

Uh oh....time tickin' down and Les BouleS are resorting back to one on one. AD needs to get control of the team and get the ball back to Etan, who's hot. DS doesn't need to try to be the superhero. BTW, his self promotion with those T-shirts is stupid. Way too many egos and personal agendas on this team.

Man, this is great! We're losing by just SIX now! We should send someone in to take out Jamison, too!

On another note, it's interesting to see what one of our centers can do when he has the entire game to himself. The Poet's line is looking pretty strong tonight, color me surprised.

Posted by: Gack | April 4, 2007 9:22 PM | Report abuse

Most of Etan's points have come from uncontested dunks based on good setups by AD though. Not individual post moves.

t shirts are good marketing off the court. on the court, things actually looked fluid, which they have all season when 2 of big 3 weren't on the floor. no one wanted to take the 4th quarter shots after the 4 minute mark. if there are gil haters, that's where they are unfounded.

Don't worry, MEG, they still have Jamison to scapegoat, and if that fails, it's got to be Stevenson's fault. After all, he's got T-Shirts, he Must Be The Problem.

Why can't our players be more like LeBron James? He never talks, always leads his team to championships, isn't a ball hog, and thank god, he isn't concerned with self-promotion.

Hmmmmm, last I checked, they got blown out by the Bobcats last night by 20 pts with Gilby in the game. Tonight, they lost by 8 pts with Gilby out early. You do the math.

"I'm tired of the excuses... good teams have injuries and find ways to win."

While I agree with this in principle, you have to realize Le Wiz are so top-heavy with their scoring that we knew the team was going to be extremely vulnerable to injuries derailing them entirely. Sans Arenas and Butler, you're talking about nearly FIFTY points of offense vanishing, that has to come from somewhere else.

Add in a sulking BTH, a shelved Blatche, Songaila still not fully recovered from his back and Arvis Hayes maybe never will recover from his knee, and you're looking at a pretty scary thin lineup.

With the way AD goes to the floor all the time, you have to wonder how long before Roger Mason is going to be starting...

Geeze, the wheels really came off the bus this season.

The Wiz went from not being able to beat anyone, to being able to beat anyone, to the team who couldn't defend anyone, to being the team that everyone gets hurt on.

I don't think I've ever seen a season like this in all of the years I've watched the Bullets/Wiz, even when they stunk the joint up.

I hope Gil is ok and it's nothing serious.

Let us know asap please Ivan.

Posted by: Ray | April 4, 2007 10:28 PM | Report abuse

DCMan the margin of victory argument is bogus. You always harp on defense well here is your concrete evidence that it is all Gilbert's fault this team stinks on defense.

Charlotte shooting last night: 51 of 89 (57.3 percent)
Charlotte shooting tonight: 41 of 78 (52.6 percent)

Want more evidence of that skyrocketing improvement in defense: Washington forced 9 turnovers last night and whole 6 tonight. Wooooooohoooooooooo we are on our way to the finals now!

As for the offense

Last night with Gilbert: 40 for 91 (44 percent) from the field, 6 of 19 (31.6 percent) from 3-point

Tonight without Gilbert: 34 of 70 (48 percent) 7 of 17 (41.2 percent) from 3-point.

So there you have it Gilbert haters, were as good offensively and just as bad defensively without him. Now that you know what life is like without him (the same bad defense and fourth-quarter collapses we have experienced with him but when others are missing). Maybe after this you Gilbert haters will get a clue and start blaming some other people for this team's demise or (in the case of one particular poster) quit cackling about it.

The expectations for this team i think were a litte high this season. The team was playing out of their mind offensively in december and january and it was unrealistic to think that they could contimue that level of play the rest of the season.

We need a talent upgrade in the off season period!

Ever hear of the phrase, "Curse of Les BouleS?" In this season's case, it's combined with "choking dogs."

Posted by: DC Man88 | April 4, 2007 10:37 PM | Report abuse

George,

Look at your numbers. Shooting percentage is lower tonight than last night for the Bobcats, which credits Les BouleS' defense. Thus the score was closer tonight. Tonight's game, they were still in it at the end. Last night's game, it was a clear blowout.

Defensively, I never blamed Gilbert solely. If you reread my posts, you will see I also blasted AJ and others. Even with my blame on Gilby, it was that as the face of the franchise and the so called "superstar," he needed to elevate his game to bring them closer. Last night, it was a clear blowout. Also, look at the TO stats again. They got 8 tonight, not 6.

Tonight, the team look like they gelled more. Tonight, they had 23 assists. Last night, they had 17 assists. Also, they looked active on the defensive end. Etan was making big blocks and knocking people on their butts. Nobody was touched yesterday. Wallace got hammered a few times.

Posted by: DC Man88 | April 4, 2007 10:47 PM | Report abuse

Oh yeah, just to note, since you all seemed to have missed it. Gilby didn't start tonight b/c he showed up late for the shootaround. NOt characteristic of a great leader, especially a day after being blown out.

Posted by: DC Man88 | April 4, 2007 10:49 PM | Report abuse

"The expectations for this team i think were a litte high this season."

Actually I think a lot of us knew better. I had them 4th in the East and about 47 wins. I don't think that's even gonna happen now with all of the injuries.

They need a center and point guard going into next year. They can't go into next year as Etan as starting center, and Haywood is going to get his wish and be traded.

I hope Navarro can come over but not with that buyout.

They do that and sure up thier bench and the Wiz can make some noise next year. Still think they are two years away anyway.

"Ever hear of the phrase, "Curse of Les BouleS?""

It's not that. I kinda have a theory when things are going bad that they continue to do so. Sometimes things just aren't "meant to be" and that applies to the Wiz this year. Sometimes stuff like this happens and people grow stronger, or sometimes they become weaker.

I love Gil, but he's been a pretty big hotdog this year. Maybe this will make him more focused and humble. He really needs to be the leader on this team, not Jamison.

Saying that, I wouldn't wish an injury on anyone and I hope it's nothing serious.

DCMan you are missing the point. The other team still shot over 50 percent. You may consider going from 57 to 52 percent a huge improvement, but in the grand scheme of things it ain't.
And you can spout all you want about looking better on defense, the stats say otherwise and the proof of the reason they gave up less points is the pace of the game. The Bobcats took 11 less shots tonight and the Wizards took 21 less shots. And as for your point about bashing others most of your criticisms are throwaway while you spend the large majority of your posts bashing Gilbert. Don't pretend like you spend time criticizing everyone on this team because you don't. The ratio of your criticism is 90 percent Gilbert and 10 percent everyone else involved with the organization.

If Gil's is out for is more than 7-10 days the season is over. If it is a short stint it is blessing in disguise. Gil will get the rest he needs before the plsyoffs begin. This is more important than who we are seeded against. The long minutes he plays were bound to catch up with us.

Ivan's scout friend sees what some of us have been saying. The only question is does EG hold Ernie responsible for not getting through to his player? The only solutions are: new coach, new core of players, both. I think EG has tough decision becasue EJ seems to be a good guy and he has gotten a lot out of this bundh. But to me we need a defensive-minded coach. We can outscore teams despite getting away from the Princeton offense probably 80% of the time. We do it with one on one moves, 3 point bombs and fast breaks. There are very few passes that set up a teamate. We have the potential to be even better on offense. But more importantly we need a defensive minded coaching staff to get to the next level.

We didn't get the charlotte games due to Caps hockey up here. Question: where is the love for Etan? His numbers look good in these 2 games. Are they despite his poor defense? are they simply because he is finishing and dunking after great passes from Gil, AD or Stevenson that Haywood would not finish? I am still looking for who is going to step up during the stretch run and his numbers jump out at me.

I thought Etan did a bang up job both last night and tonight and I've always loved Daniels toughness. Can't say enough how impressed I've been with Songaila.

But we need the Big 3's scoring and right now we only have the one....along with little to no defense and a coach who seems to have lost the team. Why bench Gilbert and Brendan? Or was Brendan benched? I did not see him all night and did not hear the announcers even mention his name.

But who in the world is out there to coach the team if Eddie is fired?

Posted by: Rainmaker | April 5, 2007 12:13 AM | Report abuse

Haywood got benched because the coach (and lots of other people) thought he was half-stepping for the past several games he started. Jordan whent with the guys who give full effort in Etan, and more minutes for Booth and Songaila.

And Jordan's not getting fired this summer. It's simply not going to happen so there's no point stressing over it.

Perhaps Eddie Jordan has some issues in knowing what to do in the 3rd & fourth qtr. ?

Ivan..inquire of E. Jordan and or the assistant's about that? Why the collapses in 4th? Thats NOT players, necessarily. Its coaching.

These guys played good D and well considering..fix that 3rd & 4th glitch..

Uh I think Haywood's mouth may have burned a bridge that he can't cross back over. Like Kwame, you may recall, he may be quietly gone. IVAN, please ask Jordan about HIS issues w/3rd & 4th thanks.

Gilby's focus is clearly questionable right now. Recall during a previous season, he came out of the locker room late after halftime because he was too caught up shooting pool and forgot about the time. He complained that no one told him. Also, it's been reported that he plays online poker during halftime too.

With regard to Gilby's injury, it was a freak accident. I don't know what the heck Gilby was doing, but he was just standing there and looking up as GWall crashed into him. You'd think you would want to get the heck out of the way if someone was hurling toward your legs. I'd have to give him some props for toughing it out though. I'm sure he was in a lot of pain, but he wasn't crying like a baby.

What have I done to you? Why can't I have an opinion and not be questioned about the integrity of my opinion? This blog is about Les BouleS, not me. Souf East Lisa, leave me alone!

Given that, it was too bad Gilby didn't get out of the way of a train wreck as GWall crashed into him. I was just wondering if he was spacing out because he showed up at the shootaround late, didn't get to start, and then had a goofy look on his face at the beginning of the game. All the while, playoff positioning and qualifying for the playoffs was the modus operandi as the Knicks lost last night and Les BouleS could have clinched a playoff spot last night with a win at home. They didn't.

EVERYBODY!

I'm being accused of being jealous of Gilby. Whether I'm jealous or not, does it change the fact that Les BouleS went 1-4 on their West Coast Trip while losing to mostly sub.500 teams that were shorthanded. Came back and suffered a debacle against Toronto (Gilby shot 0-4 in OT). Then, just lost twice to Charlotte, a bottom feeding lottery bound team that's ranked #29 in the power rankings. Could have clinched a playoff spot at home last night, but didn't.

Why are people concerned with me when Les BouleS are REEELING RIGHT NOW!!! Don't take out your sorry frustrations on me. You're all just jealous that my predictions came true.

i donno about you, but pistons and raptors are two teams the wiz WANT to play in the playoffs. i feel like the pistons are a team we've matched up well agianst the past 3-4 years, and the inexperience of the raps will hopefully hurt them in the playoffs. so, in an ideal world, the Wiz would be the #5 seed, and play against the Raps in the first round, and then the Pistons in the second round. hopefully by then, the bulls knock off the heat and the cavs beat the bulls, meaning wiz vs. cavs in the eastern conference finals with a healthy caron back!

ok, all jokes aside, let's rest our players now. it's clear we ain't getting a 3 or 4 seed. the knicks are bound to lose another, so we're guaranteed a playoff spot. let's just relax and get our bench players some bigtime minutes so they know what to do in crunch time in the playoffs.

DC, blaming Gilbert for Wallace crashing into him is absolutely ridiculous. If you watched the game you'd have seen that Arenas was a little tied up at the time, what with trying to box out 7 feet, 255 lb Jake Voskhul. In fact, he rotated over to Voskhul to cover for Thomas, who left Voskhul to challenge Wallace's shot. That's right. The guy you always blast for not playing defense or helping his teammates was hurt as result of rotating to cover for a teammate in a properly executed defensive rotation. Ironic, no?

Kalorama,

I didn't blame Gilby for anything. I just said it was infortunate he was in the way of a train wreck heading towards him. He should have been aware enough to get the heck out of the way. Maybe you should blame AJ for letting GWall blow by him.

Oh yeah, Gilby was really helping out against 7-0 Voskuhl. If he had gotten the rebound, Voskuhl would have dunked it and Gilby into the rim.

Dude, I saw the game. Don't reap so much glory on Gilby who jsut happeend to be standing there next to Voskhul. Instead, read Ivan's blurb:

I watched the entire debacle unfould from a seat underneath one of the baskets. After watching Raymond Felton and Gerald Wallace execute a basic pick-and-roll play to perfection for, oh, the 100th time, I said something to the affect of: "Why do they keep switching on that? It leaves Gilbert on a big and Antawn on a small. It doesn't make sense." The scout sitting next to me started laughing. "C'mon man, you've been watching this team play defense for two years and you're surprised? Eddie can tell these guys what to do a million times and it isn't going to change."

Edgemoor, Md.: I enjoy these blogs very much. Thanks for doing them.

The Wizards are a puzzle to me. Perhaps you can enlighten me. I see that when any of the big three go down the team loses. I don't understand why the team is quite so delicately balanced that even teams like Charlotte can beat them up in that condition.

On paper, the bench seems perfectly okay to me. Songaila appears to be coming on. Booth puts up decent numbers often when called on. Ruffin contributes. Even Jarvis Hayes has his moments. And, the center position is no better or worse when the big three are not all there. What can be the real explanation for this fragility?

Ivan Carter: It's pretty simple: when one of the big three is not playing, this team simply can't afford to have one of the other two experience a bad shooting night. Last night, Antawn Jamison was 3 of 16 and scored 6 points while Gilbert's 33 points and 7 assists were crossed out by the fact that Raymond Felton and Brevin Knight drove around him at will and picked the Wiz defense apart. Also, this team simply can't have Jarvis Hayes go 1 of 6, Roger Mason go 0 of 3 and Brendan Haywood provide zero points and two rebounds in nine minutes.
