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 his activity in rehab, maybe not fire the muscle up right now. Just rehab."
Also, I wouldn't count on seeing Gilbert Arenas in uniform one week from Sunday when the Wiz host New Orleans. Gilbert had set that night as a possible date for a return to action but he has yet to go through a single full contact practice. He has done plenty of shooting and has also played some serious games of full court one-on-one with rookie Nick Young.
Gilbert: "It may take me longer to get in shape. That's why I'm out there with Nick, trying to get some rhythm back in my legs, get some cardio in and that's all I'm working on right now. Truthfully, it's hard to tell (when he'll be back to game action). If I really wanted to get out there, I can go play now but you're going to get two good minutes out of me. Right now, it's about trying to get in shape and get my body used to playing again."
And it gets worse folks: your faithful beat reporter went to hoop today and felt something pop in the right achilles. It's killing me and right now, I'm limping around like a old man. I'm day-to-day......
