The news of the night here from Verizon Center is that rookie F-C Oleksiy Pecherov will be out up to six weeks with a hairline fracture in his right ankle. Pesh hurt the ankle in practice last Sunday and did not make the trip with the team. Eddie Jordan...

Boston beatdown

When the Wiz were rolling along last season Gilbert Arenas, Antawn Jamison and Caron Butler did their thing, the other guys played their roles and the Wiz took care of the basketball as a team. So far this season, the "Big Three" has been more like "Three Blind Mice"...

Live from Boston

As you can probably tell from the telecast, it's a wild atmosphere here in the Garden tonight. So far, the offensive problems that plauged the Wiz in Wednesday's opener are killing them again. The main issue is poor shooting. Right now they trail 38-26 and the Wiz are shooting...

Celtics Have Potential . . . To Disappoint

I'm really excited about the official debut of the Boston Celtics' newly assembled Big Three of Kevin Garnett, Ray Allen and Paul Pierce tonight at TD Banknorth Garden. The anticipation is like getting ready to tear off the packaging of a new toy on your birthday. The Big Three, A...

Thoughts on Durant and Denver

Allow me to re-introduce myself. It's been awhile since I checked in with any thoughts about the NBA, but I thought it was a good time now that the season has started and I'm already sleep-deprived. I've stayed up late the last two nights watching the Lakers-Rockets (to see if...

Update from practice II

Just got back from the small but beautiful campus of Suffolk University where the Wiz held practice this afternoon. The campus is tucked right into the city George Washington style and the gym is one those cozy little places typical of a small college that plays Div III sports....

After big shot a tough loss

It was a few minutes after Gilbert Arenas hit that game-tying three-pointer to force overtime that he was getting ready to take the floor for OT and was stretching out his legs on the scorer's table. I was sitting under the basket, right next the end of the Wiz...

Live from Naptown

Indiana's Jermaine O'Neal (knee) and Troy Murphy (achilles) are out for tonight's opener against the Wizards here at wonderful Conseco Fieldhouse. In Wiz news, Eddie Jordan named Caron Butler and Antawn Jamison as the team's captains for the season. Jamison was a captain along with Etan Thomas last season....

Getting ready to jump on a flight to Indy for tomorrow's opener and wanted to drop in with a few things from the day: -The focus of my preview story that is running tomorrow (I think Mike Wise will touch on it as well in a column) is the...

The year of Kobe....

Until Kobe Bryant gets moved, rumors about where he's headed are going to circulate through the NBA and today, those rumors found Washington. In today's Chicago Tribune, Sam Smith threw the possibility out there (via an unnamed GM) that the Wiz are a "dark horse" candidate to land Kobe....

Monday update

The news of the day is that rookie Oleksiy Pecherov could be out for a little while with a sprained right ankle. Pecherov rolled the ankle in practice on Sunday and was wearing a walking boot and using crutches as the team wrapped up practice this afternoon. The injury...
