From Wizards shoot around

Although the questions you want answered by the Washington Wizards went unanswered at this morning's shoot around (fairly enough Wizards coach Flip Saunders and his players are no longer answering questions about the Gilbert Arenas situation), here's the actual basketball news coming from the Wachovia Center this morning:

From Wizards shoot around

Although the questions you want answered by the Washington Wizards went unanswered at this morning's shoot around (fairly enough Wizards coach Flip Saunders and his players are no longer answering questions about the Gilbert Arenas situation), here's the actual basketball news coming from the Wachovia Center this morning:

Washington forward Mike Miller is close to returning from his strained calf injury, but will definitely not play tonight against the Sixers. Washington center Brendan Haywood remained at the team's hotel this morning due to sickness. Saunders said the team is hoping he'll be OK to play tonight, but that he'll be a game-time decision.

Although Arenas did not speak, we were told he was at the arena for shootaround and that he would be in the starting lineup tonight along with Caron Butler and Jamison.

There's the latest from the Wizards, who are 2-0 this season against the Sixers -- although point guard Allen Iverson didn't play in either of those losses. Tomorrow, Iverson's contract becomes guaranteed for the rest of the season. Will get that update tonight upon arrival to the arena.
