Wizards Insider: December 23, 2007 - December 29, 2007

Daniels and Shaq out

Checking in from Verizon Center and the word is that Antonio Daniels will not play tonight against the Shaq-less Heat. Daniels, who has been out since spraining a ligament in his right knee at Miami on Dec. 13, went through some pre-game drills and was watched closely by a...

Onto the swamp

Of all the NBA trips, the one to New Jersey is the worst. The arena, now called IZOD center, is a dump that sits in the middle of nowhere and is surrouned by the world's biggest construction zone. The crowds are usually decent but hardly rabbid and the place...

Strange win but a win

That was one of the more unique games I've seen in awhile last night. The Wizards came out hot early behind Roger Mason Jr., cooled off, took back control in the second half and then repeatedly let Charlotte get back in the game. The finish featured some truly odd...

Butler may go tonight against Bobcats

Caron Butler, who has been bothered by sprains in both of his ankles, went through shootaround this morning here in Charlotte and it's looking as though he'll be in the lineup tonight against the Bobcats. That's good news because the Wiz need to get this three-game losing skid snapped...

Merry Christmas, Scott Skiles?

The Chicago Bulls fired Skiles today and didn't even bother leaving a gift-wrapped bag of smelly, game-worn tube socks under the tree. Wow. That's cold. A Christmas Eve firing isn't unusual. I was in my first season covering the Hawks five years ago when then-general manager Pete Babcock canned Lon...

Butler, Daniels update

The Wizards practiced today and while neither forward Caron Butler nor guard Antonio Daniels took part, they did do individual work and both players are moving closer to returning. Butler,. who has two sprained ankles, said he would get into the gym tomorrow night in Charlotte and hasn't ruled...
