Thursday update

-Antonio Daniels felt good on that right knee this morning and went through a full practice after scoring 18 points in 36 minutes last night.

-F Andray Blatche was excused from practice to handle some personal business but was with the team for the flight to Milwaukee and will be available tomorrow night.

-F Darius Songaila, who did not get off the bench Wednesday night against Detroit, has been bothered by a sore Achilles. However, Jordan said his decision to not play him was based more on matchups than anything else. The Wiz bench was totally outplayed last night and managed a single field goal. Detroit held a 33-8 edge in bench points.

"I wanted to go with Andray first and when I went with Andray, I wanted our forwards to max out there minutes a little bit. I went with Andray at forward with Brendan at center which we don't do a lot. That's something I wanted to look at to see if it could give us some kind of advantage there (pause)... it didn't (laugter), I'm glad Darius had another day (to rest the Achilles). I'm sure he was a little bit dissapointed he didn't play but there are still a lot of games and alot of minutes for him. I think there are going to be some good matchups tomorrow and coming up for him."

-Injured F-C Oleksiy Pecherov was on the court! He was on the court! Yes, the player who has been 2-4 weeks away forever actually laced up the hoop shoes and went through some plays with assistant coaches and did some intense shooting drills. Pesh, who has been out all season with a hairline fracture in his right ankle, is still bothered by swelling in the ankle but the fracture itself is healed and he's getting closer to going through a full contact practice.
