Wizards Insider: October 18, 2009 - October 24, 2009

Bulls 93, Wizards 70

The only positives that can be taken from this game? Nobody else got hurt and the preseason is finally, mercifully, over. If you thought the Wizards couldn't look worse than they did against the Atlanta Hawks on Monday, then you missed the entire second half against the Bulls. That's when...

Wizards 90, 76ers 89; Jamison Lifting Weights

Wasn't that one fun? That had to be one of the most ridiculously hilarious endings that I've seen in some time, as the Wizards beat Eddie Jordan and his 76ers in his new digs. Flip Saunders left it up his young guys and one of his oldest guys to finish...

Hawks 113, Wizards 95

I know Gilbert Arenas and Mike Miller were both in their hotel rooms sick, but that didn't mean that the rest of the team didn't have to show up. The Wizards were understandably shorthanded without their starting backcourt and with Antawn Jamison sitting at the end of the bench and...

Jamison Making Progress

Antawn Jamison was talking to some of his teammates after practice on Sunday and did something that should serve as a positive sign: He lifted his right arm and starting pointing backward with his thumb. It was a pretty impressive sight for anyone who saw Jamison leaving the court with...
