Arenas Opens Up, Sort Of

Gilbert Arenas really doesn't want to talk anymore, but he has to, and since he has to -- or face more $25,000 fines -- we have to ask him questions. It is a challenge right now and will remain one until Arenas feels more comfortable expressing himself through the media...

Jamison to Miss Remainder of Preseason

Antawn Jamison will miss at least the rest of preseason after an MRI on Thursday revealed that he had a subluxation of his right shoulder, which implies a partial dislocation (his shoulder basically popped out).

Wizards 109, Cavaliers 104

The Wizards are being optimistic, perhaps too optimistic about the prospects of Antawn Jamison, who injured his right shoulder while fouling Cleveland's Zydrunas Ilgauskas and was forced to leave with 4 minutes, 34 seconds left in the first period. The moment Jamison's arm came down after his train wreck collision...

Miller Is Keeping His LeBrons

Gilbert Arenas finally broke his silence -- barely. And only because he was fined. In other news, the Wizards beat the Pistons. For this morning's newspaper, Michael Lee also wrote that this season is make or break for Andray Blatche. * Here's the Washington Times's Mike Jones on Silent Gil....

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. -- The Wizards didn't practice on Monday, with Flip Saunders leaving his players with the option to do some individual work at Van Andel Arena. The voluntary work was enough for Saunders to expressed some concern over the court. He complained that it was too slick and...
