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 left ankle sprain, he will not practice tomorrow and is listed as day-to-day.
I saw Darius myself and he was limping while heading to the showers and had some blue athletic tape wrapped around the ankle (reduce the swelling?). He didn't say much, only confirmed that he rolled it and referred any questions to the athletic trainers, who are calling it a mild sprain. Darius had a pretty good limp going as he walked out and had two big bags of ice under his arms so my guess is that it could be at least a few days. We'll know more tomorrow.
That was a good win. All five starters scored in double figures for only the third time this season, they kept one of New Jersey's Big 3 in check (Richard Jefferson) and the bench kicked in with some contributions (Songaila and Roger Mason Jr., who has made 17 of his last 32 shots. Caron Butler really brought in the second half, at one point outscoring the Nets 10-1 by himself.
WIz need to take care of business against Minnesota Tuesday night and end this homestand at 4-1.
