Arenas and Butler out
Gilbert Arenas will be held out of tonight's game against Indy as a precautionary measure to rest his surgically repaired left knee. Caron Butler will miss his second straight game with a bruised right knee.
I chatted with Antonio Daniels a bit before the game and he said that Arenas wasn't hurting or anything and considered playing tonight but decided to rest the knee. If Wednesday's game at Orlando means anything, Arenas and Butler would likely play.
Eddie Jordan on Butler, who bumped knees with Detroit's Rodney Stuckey Friday night: "There's still some soreness and we want to just make sure that he's going to play, hopefully Wednesday without anymore pain. As soon as they are ready to play, they will play."
DeShawn Stevenson is going to play tonight despite a painful lower back but that's nothing new. He also said that he's serious about getting Soulja Boy a courtside seat for games against Cleveland at Verizon Center in the first round. And, he said he's serious about putting Soulja Boy in one of his game jerseys.
"Oh, he's going to be there, watch," Stevenson said though he said it with a smirk that made it hard for me to tell if he was serious. I guess we'll have to wait and see. He also said that he'll have some "good stuff" for us after the game. My read: he's going to call LeBron James out some more.
