Wizards Insider: December 9, 2007 - December 15, 2007

Grunfeld "likely" to sign a guard

Wizards team president Ernie Grunfeld said that following the injury to guard Antonio Daniels, who is expected to miss 2-4 weeks with a sprained right MCL, the team will likely sign a free agent guard in coming days. The team is playing Sacramento tonight with nine healthy players. Grunfeld:...

Young to start?

Roger Mason Jr. is listed as a starter at guard in place of the injured Antonio Daniels, who sprained his right MCL on Thursday night at Miami and is expected to miss 2-4 weeks, but I'm hearing that Nick Young will start along with DeShawn Stevenson tonight against Sacramento....

Seeing Theus Takes Me Back To My Youth

Personal confession: When I was about 7 years old growing up in Kansas City, my two favorite NBA players were Magic Johnson and Reggie Theus. Magic was an easy choice, since he was the leader of Showtime and the Los Angeles Lakers were winning championships or in contention almost every...

Daniels out 2-4 weeks

As I reported in Saturday's paper, the Wizards are expected to announce that guard Antonio Daniels is expected to miss 2-4 weeks with a sprained right MCL, an injury he suffered in Thursday's win at Miami. The injury leaves the team with nine healthy players including Darius Songaila, who...

Evening update

Good news about Darius Songaila, who appeared to tweak that ankle when he made a layup in the fourth quarter last night, came down funny and caught his foot on the basket support: he's good to go for tomorrow night. That was a big bucket by the way. He...

Step in the arena

Anyone want to venture a guess as to which hip hop legend dropped a rhyme with that title? (Happens to be my favorite act of all time). Thing is, the Wizards did just that tonight when they stepped into American Airlines Arena and snapped a 10-game losing skid here...

It's been a long time since I left you....

For those of you with any knowledge of hip hop history, you can fill in the blank after the title to the this blog entry. ....I'm just shocked, shocked I say, that the Mitchell Report revealed that so many baseball players were taking performance enhancing drugs. In other breaking...

Wiz update

Darius Songaila, who dressed but did not play last night on that left ankle, practiced today and will be available tomorrow night at Miami. Everyone else practiced, including Andray Blatche who said he did something to his right foot last night but wasn't sure what it was. Anyway, he...

Hughes Might Be Best As Sixth Man

The big news out of Cleveland last night was LeBron James coming off the bench for the first time in 333 career games as the Cavaliers snapped a six-game losing streak with a 118-105 victory over the Indiana Pacers. But the real story may turn out to be the emergence...

Songaila will dress, may play

Wizards Coach Eddie Jordan said that forward Darius Songaila will be in uniform and may play tonight against Minnesota. Songaila sprained his left ankle at the end of Sunday's win over New Jersey and did not practice yesterday but did participate in shootaround. Jordan said he would see how...

Songaila a game-time decision

The Wizards practiced today but forward Darius Songaila did not. Songaila suffered a mild left ankle sprain during last night's win over New Jersey and was walking with a limp as he left the lockeroom. He'll be further evaluated before tomorrow night's game against Minnesota. His absence left the...

Songaila update

Got back from the locker room a little bit ago and wrote my story but wanted to drop in with an update on Darius Songaila, who played a great game but rolled his left ankle late when he came down on Antawn Jamison's foot. It's been called a mild...

Live from VC

Well, Jason Kidd is on the court so I guess he doesn't have a headache tonight. Seriously, this is a game the Wiz need to win. New Jersey has struggled, Kidd might be wanting out of town and the Wiz have played solid ball. It's crucial that they win...
