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 team with nine healthy players but that's really not anything new. With Gilbert Arenas, Etan Thomas and Oleksiy Pecherov out, the Wiz have been shorthanded all season. This is an issue I've addressed repeatedly this season because even when Gilbert was playing, he wasn't going through full practices.
Eddie Jordan said back then that he and his staff would have to be ''creative" and that's what they've done. The good news is that Roger Mason Jr. and Nick Young have really stepped up lately and I wouldn't be surprised if Jordan continued looking for opportunities to play rookie Dominic McGuire, who saw some action last night.
