Wizards Insider: March 30, 2008 - April 5, 2008

Gilbert out as precaution

Gilbert Arenas will not play tonight against the Bulls. According to Associate Head Coach Mike O'Koren, who spoke with reporters because Eddie Jordan is sick (Jordan is here and is expected to be on the bench but he doesn't look good. In fact, he looks miserable), the move to...

Wizards at Bulls

With a playoff spot locked up, the Wizards can now turn their attention to building some momentum over these final six games. Antawn Jamison, who missed last night's win over the Miami D-Leaguers with a sprained right shoulder, is officially listed as doubtful but I'd be shocked if he...

Jamison Out, Friday Update

Antawn Jamison (sprained right shoulder) is out for tonight's game. It will be interesting to speak with him before the game and get a sense of how serious he thinks the injury will be. DeShawn Stevenson (ankle) was held out of shootaround but still hopes to play. He's a...

Thursday update II

Jamison and Stevenson injured in tough loss

The loss was rough but the news afterward was worse. Antawn Jamison suffered a sprained right shoulder while diving into the stands to save that ball with less than two seconds remaining. He appeared to be in serious pain after the game but was in the trainer's room getting...

Arenas in uniform

In classic Gilbert Arenas fashion, the three time all star will make his return to uniform tonight against the Milwaukee Bucks but, as his teammates warm up, he's still in the locker room waiting to make a grand entrance. The decision was entirely up to Arenas, who did not...

Shootaround update

Rember, chat today at 2 p.m. Caron Butler and Antonio Daniels went through shootaround this morning. Daniels (left wrist) is going to play and while Butler (left hamstring) is offiicially called a game time decision, he sounded like a guy who is going to play. Gilbert Arenas did not...

Arenas cleared, now what?

In an interesting new twist to the Gilbert Arenas situation, Arenas was cleared to play on Saturday by team doctor Marc Connell. That means Arenas could have played as soon as Sunday against the Lakers. Arenas was on the recently completed five-game trip and worked out before every game....

Props To Amaré

I intended on going to sleep a little earlier last night, and I had ever incentive after watching the Wizards and the Phoenix Suns getting thrashed before halftime of their respective games. While I knew the Wiz had no chance of coming back from a 21-point halftime deficit in Utah,...

Tuesday update

I'm pretty much going to lose the entire day flying back from Salt Lake City but I'll update as I can if fresh news pops up. -The team flew back to Washington following last night's ugly 129-87 loss to the Jazz here in Salt Lake City and will not...

Headed to Salt Lake City

Getting ready to hop a flight from LAX to Salt Lake for tonight's game against the Jazz. No shootaround today so I can't give you an update on Antonio Daniels yet. He left last night's game in the first quarter clutching his left wrist and he was in obvious...

Wiz at Lakers, Gilbert at it again

So we're in the locker room before the game when some Los Angeles based writers roll up to Gilbert Arenas and start talking to him. The interview begins with Gilbert talking about how he's still unsure of when he'll be cleared to play again and then suddenly, it took...
