Wizards at Bulls
With a playoff spot locked up, the Wizards can now turn their attention to building some momentum over these final six games. Antawn Jamison, who missed last night's win over the Miami D-Leaguers with a sprained right shoulder, is officially listed as doubtful but I'd be shocked if he played given the fact that he couldn't raise his right arm above his head yesterday.
- F Drew Gooden will miss his fourth straight game for the Bulls with a strained abdominal muscle.
- From my seat, Gilbert Arenas played a much better all-around floor game last night than in his return Wednesday in the loss to Milwaukee. He sparked that 16-6 first quarter run by really pushing the ball in transition. He notched four of his eight assists during that span and appeared to be far more comfortable at the defensive end where he moved better and did a better job of getting over and under screens.
It will be interesting to see how he responds to his first back-to-back since Nov 8 and 9. Associate Head Coach Mike O'Koren, who handled the pre and postgame press conferences for Eddie Jordan last night, said the team will continue to hold Arenas to between 20 and 25 minutes a night.
- Some folks have been screaming for an update on Etan Thomas. Thing is, it's hard to really provide much of one. His sternum is still not fully prepared for contact work, he didn't even join the team on the recent five-game road trip and with six games remaining, it's a mystery why he/the team has not just ruled him out but they have not so it's still up in the air.
- Eddie Jordan made the trip but looked miserable when I poked my head into his office after the game last night. He called it some mixture of the flu/sinus headaches and wasn't looking forward to the flight to Chicago.
