Foye definitely done for the season
Bulls (35-39) at Wizards (22-52)
Wizards starters: Shaun Livingston, Mike Miller, Nick Young, Andray Blatche, Fabricio Oberto
Bulls: Derrick Rose, Kirk Hinrich, Taj Gibson, James Johnson, Brad Miller
Line: Bulls by 5.5
There really wasn't much of a chance that Randy Foye would return this season after an MRI revealed a torn ligament in his left wrist last Monday. But Foye told me before the game that his season is over.
Foye's left wrist is in a camouflage-colored cast and he said it won't be removed until April 13. The season finale is April 14 against Indiana. I asked him jokingly if he could play a day after having his cast removed, Foye smiled and said, "Oh naw. No chance at all."
Foye originally hurt himself while guarding Chicago's Derrick Rose on Feb. 22. He played through the pain until he was forced to shut it down after a collision with Charlotte's D.J. Augustin on March 26.
"It's definitely a disappointment," Foye said, "because I wanted to be out there with the guys to help them, give them a boost, help them win. They did in New Orleans, but I wanted to be a part of it. To be in a cast is frustrating for me. But luckily, it's my left wrist. I hail from this."
Fabricio Oberto will get his third consecutive start at center. While Oberto has only scored six points combined in the previous two games against Houston and New Orleans, he has impressed his teammates with his passing. Oberto had three assists against the Hornets, including some bounce passes to Mike Miller that had James Singleton shaking his head in amazement.
"He's like a tall version of Jason Kidd with the passes," Singleton said. "Some of those passes, I don't know how he saw it."
Cedric Jackson finally got his jersey on Friday. He arrived too late on Wednesday to get the correct uniform and had to settle for the No. 88. But he will wear No. 9. It is the fifth number that was previous worn by another player this season. Paul Davis also wore No. 9 for two games. The others - Livingston and Stevenson (No. 2); Butler and Ross (No. 3); McGuire and Howard (No. 5); and Haywood and Harris (No. 33);
