Wizards Insider: January 27, 2008 - February 2, 2008

Saturday update

It looks as though the Wiz will play a fourth straight game without Caron Butler tomorrow when Kobe and the Lakes are at the VC for a rare noon tip. Butler did not practice today but did go through some shooting drills afterward. He didn't say that he was...

Wiz and Jazz, Butler out

Forward Caron Butler just told me that he's out for tonight's game. He's had that strained left hip flexor since the Milwaukee game and also has been bothered by a bad bout of the stomach flu for several days. "I'm just going to get some more treatment and try...

Wow! Kwame for Pau!

With the reception Kwame Brown was receiving at home games in Los Angeles and Pau Gasol's constant gripes about his plight in Memphis, it seemed obvious that their days with the Lakers and Grizzlies, respectively, were nearing an end. Gasol was begging the Grizzlies to deal him, Brown was bound...

Friday update

Caron Butler attended shootaround this morning but only did light shooting and his status for tonight's game is undecided. I spoke with him last night and he said the hip was felling a little better but it was still tight and I could tell that he was concerned that...

About Last Night

This isn't really a blog, but when a picture is worth a thousand words, what more needs to be said? Oh, Lawd! (Photo by Ron Turenne/NBAE via Getty Images)...

Wiz update

Antonio Daniels, who was limping on a sore left ankle after the game last night, did not practice today but received treatment and is expected to be available tomorrow night against Utah. Caron Butler, who missed the last two games with a strained left hip flexor, was at home...

Ouch

That was an ugly one last night in Toronto. More ugly than the beating at Cleveland last week because that game was at least somewhat close at halftime. The Wiz were done early in the second quarter last night. They played hard - I can attest to that having...

Butler update, onto Toronto

I spoke with Caron Butler before he headed out last night and he said the left hip flexor became a problem during Sunday's win at Milwaukee and really tightened up on him that night on the flight home. The decision was made that he would be better off taking...

Butler out, Blatche to start

Caron Butler will not play tonight and is "probably" out for tomorrow night's game at Toronto with a left hip flexor strain. The injury happened during Sunday's loss at Milwaukee when Butler scored a career-high 40 points while almost willing the Wiz to a win. Andray Blatche will start...

Wiz and Raptors

The last time Toronto came to town, on Dec. 1, Chris Bosh was out with a groin injury and the Wizards won 101-97. Tonight, Bosh will be in the lineup, and lately, he's been rolling. He's coming off a 32-point game in a blowout win over Milwaukee and is...

C-Webb, Warrior: Return Of The Prodigal No. 1

Will the Chris Webber-Don Nelson reunion be more impactful than the Shaq-Penny reunion? That was my first question when I heard that C-Webb was coming back to the league and re-signing with the Golden State Warriors. After Phil Jackson and Kobe Bryant joined forces in L.A. again after Jackson's tell-all...

Kidd Wants Out, What's New?

Jason Kidd finally admitted what everyone knew for the past month - that the source of his migraines is actually playing for the New Jersey Nets. He's informed his team that a change of address is the cure, not popping pills. The Nets' New Year's resolution must've been that it...

Gasol's Grizzly Grief

Before Kobe Bryant, Shawn Marion and Andrei Kirilenko made it popular to have your organization completely ignore your public trade demand, there was Pau Gasol. Gasol is still in Memphis, where he doesn't really want to be so long as the Grizzlies keep losing. But he won't ask for a...

Great comeback, tough loss

With Michael Redd in street clothes, I felt that there was only one Milwaukee Buck who could hurt the Wizards yesterday and that is exactly who wound up turning the game. Mo Williams. I still remember the guy scoring 35 and nailing a long, game-winning triple at the buzzer...

Redd out

Earlier today, I wrote that Bucks G Micael Redd would be in the lineup tonight. I was wrong. Turns out that Redd did something to his left knee during a loss at Toronto Friday night and can't go. Royal Ivey will start in Redd's place. Back on Jan. 4,...

Wiz at Bucks II

The last time the Wizards visited Milwaukee, they pounced on the Bucks right from the start and cruised to a 101-77 win. The Bucks, who played without Michael Redd that game, were booed all night. Redd will play tonight. For what it's worth, the books have the Wizards installed...

Changes By Redd, Bucks Are Still Blue

After spending his summer winning a gold medal with Team USA at the Tournament of the Americas, Milwaukee Bucks guard Michael Redd said he entered this season with a "low tolerance" for losing and a purpose. Tasting success in such an unselfish environment made him hungrier for more. But in...
