Wizards Insider: February 3, 2008 - February 9, 2008

Saturday update

Neither Caron Butler nor Antonio Daniels practiced today and both players will be game-time decisions for Sunday night's game at Phoenix. Butler has missed two straight games with a strained left hip flexor and Daniels left in the first quarter of last night's loss at Denver with a right...

Butler out, Wiz at Nuggets

Caron Butler will not play tonight but is hoping to go Sunday night at Phoenix if that left hip flexor loosens up. Andray Blatche gets another start in Butler's place. The Wiz are 1-4 without Butler this season and 7-28 without him the last three seasons. "Hopefully we'll see...

Friday update

Caron Butler did not particpate in shootaround this morning but did do a lot of stretching and has not ruled himself out for tonight's game against the Nuggets. The team did not practice yesterday following the back-to-back against Philly and San Antonio so Caron has had three days to...

Trumpin' Duncan

It's about him. It's all about him. Tim Duncan knows it. When he looks over and sees the Los Angeles Lakers trading for Pau Gasol, and the Phoenix Suns trading for Shaquille O'Neal, he knows the intent is to knock him off his perch as NBA champion. "I would guess...

Butler out, Wiz and Spurs

Caron Butler is out for tonight's game for the Spurs (left hip flexor). I can't say what his plans are for the the upcoming roadie but I'll find out what I can when I can and update accordingly. And in case you don't know, Spurs PG Tony Parker remains...

Four straight

Well, that sure got out of hand quickly didn't it? When Antonio Daniels capped a three-point play by making a free throw to give the Wizards a 90-78 lead with 8:51 to go, I started writing a story about how the Wiz stopped the bleeding a little bit and...

Shaq To Get Traded? What?

The Miami Herald is reporting that the Heat has told Shaquille O'Neal that the team is looking to trade him and to be prepared for a possible deal. Citing two officials close to the situation, the paper reported that the Heat was in "serious and ongoing" discussions with the Phoenix...

Forgotten Piece Of Lakers' Puzzle

On the day the Los Angeles Lakers completed a trade for Pau Gasol, Utah Jazz point guard Deron Williams expressed his disappointment in the Memphis Grizzlies. "Why did they do that to us?" Williams said, laughing. "Trade him to the East." Gasol finally makes his much-anticipated debut for the Lakers...

Rough road ahead

Tonight's game at Philly takes on added importance when you look ahead to what is in store for the Wizards. The Spurs make their only visit to the VC tomorrow night and then it's off on a four-game roadie with stops in Denver, Phoenix, Golden State, and LA against...

Bellyaching In Beantown

First the New England Patriots' Super Bowl loss, now this. If you haven't heard, the Celtics are hurting. Most noteably, two-thirds of the Celtics' Big Three appear to be in some serious pain. Ray Allen admitted that his ankles are still sore more than 10 months after he had double-ankle...

Deron Williams Or Chris Paul?

If you didn't read Jack McCallum's great Sports Illustrated article about Deron Williams and Chris Paul, do yourself a favor and click on this link. And if you want to see the future of NBA point guards, and a rivalry that will likely live for the duration of their careers,...

Cake Love: L.A. & Kwame

Now that the Kwame Brown Era has officially come to an end in Los Angeles, I thought that I should ask Lakers Coach Phil Jackson what this latest trade to Memphis says about the former Washington Wizards No. 1 pick. Surprisingly, Jackson didn't kill him. "The reality is, Kwame has...

A Little Hope In A Big Blowout

It really got overlooked yesterday, with all the hoopla surrounding Pau Gasol's arrival and Kobe Bryant's complete domination of every player Washington Wizards Coach Eddie Jordan tossed at him, but there was hope on the floor for Wizards fans on Sunday afternoon. Where, you ask, in a game that was...

Butler in, Gasol out

Wiz forward Caron Butler, who has missed the last three games with a strained left hip flexor is going to give it a shot today against the Lakers. Meanwhile, the newest Laker, Pau Gasol, is here but won't play. The Lakers are shorthanded already without Andrew Bynum (knee) and...
