Wizards Insider: December 16, 2007 - December 22, 2007

Butler out, Songaila to start

The hits just keep on coming for the Wizards. F Caron Butler will be out tonight against Indiana with a sprained right ankle, an injury he suffered during practice on Thursday and aggravated when he landed after taking his first shot last night against Atlanta. Caron was in the...

The 'Could've Been' Hawks

I strolled into the Atlanta Hawks locker room after their season-high fourth consecutive win, a 97-92 victory over the Washington Wizards Friday night, and there were smiles all around. Most of the players were beyond giddy after the game, with the team snapping an seven-game losing streak at Verizon Center....

Roger Mason Jr. starts

It wasn't made official until just before tip-off but Roger Mason Jr. started in place of rookie Nick Young tonight against Atlanta. In his usual 6 p.m. chat with media before the game, Coach Eddie Jordan talked generally about what his thinking was when making the decision. "The first...

Ugly 2 Q equals loss

This one was lost in the second period when the Wizards squandered a lead by making only 3-of-24 shots and scored 13 points. It was a game late but you never had the feeling that the Wizards were going to make the plays needed to win because the offense...

Gordon, Deng Respond to Gilbert

CHICAGO - Ben Gordon was seated in the media room this week, signing autographs on some trading cards when his buddy asked him, "You see Gilbert's blog?" "What'd he say now," Gordon said. "He's still talking about contracts again," Gordon's friend said. Gordon just shook his head and went back...

Kobe And Da Bulls

CHICAGO - I was in from Chicago this week working on a story on the struggling Bulls that ran in today's paper. I thought it might good to check in with the man whose trade demand to Chicago helped the Bulls get off to another miserable start. The Bulls were...

Evening update

It's a good thing that the Wiz are going to have Mike Wilks in uniform for shootaround Wednesday because they need the extra body. The team practiced with six guys today because Caron Butler and Antawn Jamison were sent home sick and Andray Blatche was excused to attend to...

Wilks in the house

The word here at Verizon Center is that Mike Wilks is in DC. A deal isn't yet signed but an agreement on a non-guaranteed contract to join the Wiz in time for Wednesday's game against Chicago. Adding Wilks will give the Wiz 10 healthy players and buy Coach Eddie...

Blazers Are Burning

The hottest team in the NBA this side of the Boston Celtics doesn't reside in Phoenix or San Antonio, but in Portland, where the Trail Blazers weren't expected to be this good - okay maybe that's a stretch, this average - this fast. The Trail Blazers were supposed to terrible...
