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 leaves the Wiz with 11 healthy players for Wednesday's opener at Indiana but I didn't see Pesh having a role this early in the season anyway. He suffered an earlier setback when he sustained a bruised thigh in the game against Zalgris Kaunas and had to miss to two games. And he looked pretty rusty in Friday's preseason finale in Toronto.
