Wizards (17-57) at Pacers (30-43)
Wizards starters: Javaris Crittenton, Dominic McGuire, Caron Butler, Antawn Jamison, Andray Blatche.
Pacers: Jarrett Jack, Brandon Rush, Danny Granger, Jeff Foster, Roy Hibbert.
Refs: Ken Mauer, Jim Clark, David Guthrie
Line: Pacers by 9.
Javaris Crittenton got the nod at starting point guard with the team sticking with its plan to rest Gilbert Arenas on back-to-back games. Without Arenas and Mike James, Crittenton is the only solid ball handler on the roster, so you can probably expect Dominic McGuire, Caron Butler and Andray Blatche to do their part to take the ball up the floor from time to time. . .
Darius Songaila (sprained neck) will dress but he will only play in an emergency situation tonight. "I hope we don't have an emergency," Wizards Coach Ed Tapscott said. "Although with us, you never know -- we seem to have one on a weekly basis." Tapscott added that he would like to have Songaila get in a few practices before putting him on the floor again. . .
Arenas traveled with the team to Indiana but will not play, Arenas said he will continue to "tour" around the league with his teammates the rest of the way. "I think it's great. I think it allows him to absorb some of the things we're doing," Tapscott said. . .
The Pacers are coming off a disappointing loss to Chicago on Saturday that dropped their playoff elimination "Tragic" number to four games. This game has the potential to be ugly with the Wizards shorthanded, on the road and coming off close loss to Detroit on Saturday night. . .
