Chat today at 2 p.m.
I just arrived in Charlotte for tonight's game between the Wizards and Bobcats and wanted to remind everyone that we will be conducting an on-line chat at 2 p.m. Don't come here for the chat. Look for the link on the front of the sports web page and rap out your questions.
If you read my story in today's paper you know that Gilbert Arenas did not make the trip last night and his status for this weekend's games (home against Golden State Friday night and at Memphis on Saturday night) remains up in the air.
Basically, Gilbert didn't feel right on that left knee after Friday's game in Minneapolis (when he helped put the Wolves way with three straight jumpers during a big fourth quarter run) and feels that he needs to take some time to get it right. I asked him last night whether he was thinking about taking several games off and he said he was thinking about it, especially because the team has won five straight to dig itself out of that 0-5 hole.
"I hope so," he said. "As long as we can win, I'll rest."
That was a good win last night against a dreadful 76ers team that laid down as soon as things got tough in the second quarter. Andray Blatche had his best game as a pro, Antonio Daniels did another good job of running the team and several players chipped in. Not sure on the status of Brendan Haywood. He turned that left ankle in the second half and did not return. When I talked to him after the game he said that his status for tonight would depend on how badly it swelled up overnight and how it felt today. He's a gametime decision. As soon as I know his status, I'll update the blog from the arena.
