Wizards Insider: March 2, 2008 - March 8, 2008

Solid win

The Raptors were playing without all-star Chris Bosh but if there is a team in the league that won't feel sorry for a team in that situation, it's your Washington Wizards. Last night's 110-106 win here in snowy Toronto was quality all the way around. Antawn Jamison did much...

Wizards at Raptors

As I write this, snow is falling at a fast rate outside of my hotel room window. Word is that a pretty big one is coming. It will be interesting to see whether the team plane has any issues getting out of here after tonight's game against the Raptors....

More Caron, Thursday update

To expand on my earlier post: Caron Butler, who has missed the last 13 and 16 of the last 18 games with a left hip injury, said he will test the hip in practice on Monday and remains cautiously optimistic that if things go well in a series of...

Butler to practice next week

Just spoke with Caron Butler, who said his left hip is feeling better. He also confirmed what I wrote in my notebook today by saying that he plans on practicing next Monday to test the hip. At that point, if he's feeling better, he and the team will decide...

Wizards and Magic

It's been so long since the Wizards and Magic played, it's hard to remember any of the details but one thing I do remember from Orlando's 94-82 win at VC back on Nov. 3 is the Magic destroying the Wizards on the pick-and-roll with Hedo Turkoglu (25 points) doing...

Wednesday update

Orlando pulled out a solid home win over Toronto last night (102-87) but the good news for the Wizards is that they are catching the Magic on a back-to-back. A win tonight would put the Wizards back at .500 for the first time since Feb. 6 and it would...

Celtics, Pistons Get It On Again

WALTHAM, Mass. - Boston Celtics forward Paul Pierce knew exactly what everyone wanted to talk about yesterday, as he was surrounded by an unusually large number of notepads, tape recorders and television cameras. Pierce didn't want to waste any time, so he got right to it. "I just want to...

Practicing Gilbertology

I've got to give it up to Gilbert Arenas on this one: The man sure knows how to create a buzz. Yesterday, when Gilbert dropped the news that he'd been cleared to go through full-contact practices for the first time since undergoing knee surgery on Nov. 21, there were...

Arenas cleared to practice but fearful

Guard Gilbert Arenas, who has been out since Nov. 17 with a left knee injury, said team doctors told him last night that he is now cleared to practice at full speed. However, Arenas said he is still trying to get over the mental block of what happened to...

Hornets at Wizards

Man, it's days like this that make a person so thankful to live in this city. The weather was ideal so I got up early, grabbed a cup of coffee at the Mocha Hut on U street (way better and cheaper than the Starbucks across the street) and took...

Get To Know CP3, The MVP?

Tyson Chandler was in his fourth season in the NBA when the front-runner for the rookie of the year chased him down as Chandler was boarding the Chicago Bulls' team bus. "Do you remember me?" he asked Chandler. Chandler looked perplexed. How could he not remember the guy who just...
