Wizards Insider: October 14, 2007 - October 20, 2007

Gilbert, Antawn out

The Wizards will play without Gilbert Arenas and Antawn Jamison tonight against Lithuanian team Zalgiris Kaunas. Antawn, who turned an ankle at Chicago the other night, practiced yesterday and was on the court going through a pretty intense workout before tonight's game so he's fine. Gilbert played at Chicago...

Suns, NBA Champs?

Gilbert Arenas, coverboy of EA Sports NBA Live '08, was already a little upset that he only got a 91 rating on the game, but he might be a little ticked that the video game's simulation for the 2007-08 NBA season has the Wizards again failing to get out of...

Crunching the numbers

It's becoming increasingly clear that the playing rotation and roster is taking shape even with four fake (I mean, preseason) games to go, including tonight's against Lithuanian team Zalgiris Kaunas at VC. We know the starters are Arenas, Stevenson, Butler, Jamison and B Haywood. The top three reserves will...

Remembering Zalgiris

When the Wizards' preseason schedule was released a few months ago, I nearly jumped out of my seat when I saw the game against Zalgiris Kaunas. It immediately took me back to my trip last winter to Eastern Europe for a story on international basketball - and one of the...

Postgame breakdown

Just got back from the Wiz lockeroom. Antawn Jamison said he is "fine" after leaving the game with a mild left ankle sprain at the end of the first quarter. He was going for a loose ball in the corner when he turned his foot on the leg of a...

Tender ankles

At the end of the first quarter, Antawn Jamison rolled his left ankle on the foot of a photographer who was sitting baseline and will not return. Jamison was limping but was able to get off the floor without any help and the team is calling it a mild...

Checking in from Chicago

The game just tipped off and just so you know: Roger Mason is starting at SG (DeShawn Stevenson is getting the night off) and Mike Hall is getting the start at SF (Caron Butler is getting the night off). Gilbert Arenas is on the court doing his thing. I...

On to Chicago

The Wizards are in the windy city getting ready for tomorrow night's game against the Bulls. I would expect that Gilbert Arenas and Antonio Daniels will play after both sat out of last night's win in Philly. Gilbert wasn't going to play and then he changed his mind when...

Wiz win

Going to Philly

As I write this, I'm on a train from DC to Philly for tonight's preseason game against the 76ers. (Okay, I left a little early so I can find a TV to watch my Vikings lose to the Bears at 1 p.m. Lovie baby, can you make Rex Grossman...
