Andray Blatche questionable against Dallas
Andray Blatche is questionable against the Dallas Mavericks on Saturday with a strained right hip. He missed the Wizards' 121-113 loss in Miami after getting injured in the third quarter in Philadelphia, but he had an adventurous day nonetheless.
Reports circulated about an alleged Twitter beef in which someone using his verified account -- Blatche claimed that it was hacked -- challenged an instigator to a fight after the Wizards host Dallas. Blatche denied posting the confrontational tweets and said he wasn't aware of them until a member of the Wizards' front office contacted him and his mother called for an explanation.
"I don't know what happened. I woke up in the morning, that's what it was," Blatche said with a shrug.
Blatche had been mentioned in trade speculation since late December, but when asked if he was relieved to survive the deadline, Blatche said, "I prepared myself either way, if I was going to be traded, if I wasn't going to get traded. It was what it was. I pretty much prepared for anything to happen. [I was nervous] a little earlier, when I first started to hear about it. After a while, I just stopped thinking about it, trying to focus on ball."
Blatche said he wouldn't change his focus for the final 25 games. "It's like I normally come out and play. Even though I'm in this little slump, I'm trying to compete and get some wins."
