Wizards Insider: March 9, 2008 - March 15, 2008

Arenas close? Haywood out

Gilbert Arenas said that he will undergo an MRI exam on Monday or Tuesday and if the results are positive, he expects to be cleared to return to game action. I asked whether that could mean a return as soon as Wednesday night in Orlando and he shook his...

What makes a rivalry?

Mike Lee was the beat man covering the Wizards during the 2004-2005 season but I was helping out late in the regular season and the playoffs. When the Miami Heat completed a sweep of the Wizards in the second round with a win at Verizon Center, I was amazed...

Feeling good

Caron Butler just walked out of the arena after practicing today and declared: "I feel great." So, I guess that left hip is in good shape after he played 41 minutes in last night's win over the Cavaliers and practiced today. Antawn Jamison (back), Antonio Daniels (left hand) and...

DeShawn's had enough

Well, it took several seasons but finally a player has emerged who is sick and tired of polishing the statue that has become LeBron James. His name is DeShawn Stevenson and tonight he not only helped the Wizards beat the Cavaliers 101-99, he then added some flame to an...

Cavs at Wiz

Coach Eddie Jordan said that he has no set plan for how to use Caron Butler tonight as the two-time all-star makes his return after missing 16 straight games with a left hip injury. Butler will start. "We'll keep and eye on him and see if he pulls up...

Butler, Jamison and Daniels good to go

Caron Butler, Antawn Jamison and Antonio Daniels participated in shootaround this morning and should be in the lineup against the Cavaliers tonight. The Wiz are catching the Cavs on the second night of a back-to-back (Cleveland lost at New Jersey last night) and they need this one to keep...

Wednesday update

Caron Butler went through a full practice today and if all goes well during shootaround tomorrow, he'll be in the lineup against the Cavs. Antawn Jamison (lower back strain) and Antonio Daniels (sore left thumb) did not practice but are probable according to Coach Eddie Jordan. Translation: they are...

Bogut, The Easy To Forget About (But Pretty Good) Big Man

Nick Young did me a favor last night. The rook helped me focus my attention on a player that I often forget about when he drove down the lane in the second quarter, cocked back the ball and jack-hammered a dunk over Milwaukee Bucks center Andrew Bogut. Bogut was on...

Nick the quick, the return of Tough Juice

The vets on the team love messing with Nick Young, who along with Dominic McGuire and Oleksiy Pecherov, is something of a little brother but all of them are aware of Young's talent. During tonight's 105-97 win over the Bucks, it was on full display as the rookie scored...

Tuesday update

Caron Butler went through shootaround this morning and while he won't play tonight, the fact that he woke up feeling good and was able to get back on the court with teammates today is a very good sign that his left hip is feeling better. If you recall, he...

Wade's Early End Year Too Late

So, the Miami Heat decided to shut down Dwyane Wade. 'Bout a year too late, don't ya think? It never really should've come to this. Wade should've never been in this position. And no matter what anyone says, the Heat's miserable season is a direct result of Miami not pushing...

Butler feels and looks good in return to practice

Caron Butler practiced for the first time since Feb. 18 and felt fine afterward. The next test, according to the all-star forward who has missed 19 games with a left hip injury, will be how he feels tonight and tomorrow. As Butler said a few minutes ago, he also...
