Wizards Insider: February 17, 2008 - February 23, 2008

Saturday update

Caron Butler is out again (strained left hip flexor) and is sounds as if it may be awhile before he gets back. Coach Eddie Jordan: "I'm not speculating on Caron's return. The best thing I can give you guys is to say that we are going to calm down...

Butler out, Daniels will go

Caron Butler is out for tonight's game in Cleveland (so am I because I couldn't get out). Antonio Daniels, who has been bothered by a sore right ankle, will go. The Cavs have eight healthy bodies including two who were in the D-League yesterday but LeBron James is fine...

Friday update

Caron Butler did not participate in shootaround this morning but did some shooting. Yesterday, Coach Eddie Jordan said the all-star forward would "probably" miss his seventh straight game with that strained left hip flexor. Jordan said that he'd like see Butler go through a full practice and then determine...

Did The Cavs Really Get Better?

The biggest losers in the three-team trade deadline deal between the Cleveland Cavaliers, Chicago Bulls and Seattle SuperSonics? Cleveland Coach Mike Brown or Boston Celtics Coach Doc Rivers. Huh, you ask. Well, the pressure is really on for both. Because if the season ended today - and given how the...

Larry Hughes to Chicago!

LeBron James said he was so upset that the Dallas Mavericks got Jason Kidd that he decided to clobber Dirk Nowitzki on that punishing, driving dunk in the final minute of the All-Star Game on Sunday. Likewise, James had to be upset when the Atlanta Hawks sneaked in and got...

One More Shopping Hour Remaining

The Bonzi deal went down, giving the New Orleans Hornets more depth as they try to hold off all the teams aggressively pursuing them. But right now, general managers are blowing up the phones trying to make some last ditch deals. Unless some team makes an incredible offer for Mike...

Thursday update

Caron Butler did not practice today and Coach Eddie Jordan said that he "probably" won't play tomorrow night in Cleveland. "We want to see him through a practice and see how he reacts after a practice," Jordan said. "So, that's going to be a two-day process. From my standpoint,...

Trade Deadline update

The trade deadline is at 3 p.m., but there is already a lot going on. Pau Gasol, Shaquille O'Neal and Jason Kidd have already been moved, but it might take some drastic measures to get players like Vince Carter, Ron Artest, Jermaine O'Neal or Mike Miller. It looks like there...

Wednesday update

Get used to a lot of nights like this one NBA fans. Sitting here watching the NBA package. Early menu featured the following games in the East: Knicks at Sixers. Ugh. Bulls at Nets. Ugh. Orlando at Toronto. Mildy interesting. (it would be more interesting if the game was...

Rough loss

The Wiz lost 113-100 in OT at home to the Knicks tonight. On the last play of regulation with the score tied at 90, Antonio Daniels ran the clock down to around the six-second mark, dribbled to his left and was confronted by Quentin Richardson, who jumped out on...

Wiz and Knicks update

The word is that Caron Butler is out for tonight's game against the Knicks. He went through shootaround this morning but apparently was still feeling some stiffness and soreness and the decision was made to hold him out at least one more game. The next game is Friday night...

Monday update

Forward Caron Butler, who missed the last five games and Sunday's all-star game, practiced at full speed tonight and will likely play tomorrow night against the Knicks if that left hip is feeling fine in the morning at shootaround. Also, center Etan Thomas, who has not played or practiced...

Post All-Star Update

The Wizards normally practice at 11 a.m. but given the fact that all-star game now starts at the ridiculously late hour of 8:30 on a Sunday night, the team will gather at six tonight after the arrival of all-stars Caron Butler Antawn Jamison. I'll find out then what Butler's...
