No Arenas, No Miller

Two of the Washington Wizards best players, Gilbert Arenas and Mike Miller, are out of tonight's pre-season game with "flu-like symptoms."

No Arenas, No Miller


Two of the Washington Wizards best players, Gilbert Arenas and Mike Miller, are out of tonight's pre-season game with "flu-like symptoms." 

The probable Wizards starters: DeShawn Stevenson, Randy Foye, Caron Butler, Andray Blatche, and Brendan Haywood.

Sixers will start the same five they've been starting: Lou Williams, Andre Iguodala, Thaddeus Young, Elton Brand, and Samuel Dalembert.

Only Sixer on the roster not suiting up tonight is Rodney Carney, who is still out with a strained left hamstring.

Just finished pre-game conference with Eddie Jordan. As we all know, the last team Jordan coached was the Wizards -- they fired him early last season.

Here's another thing to keep an eye on tonight: The Wizards will know the Princeton Offense, probably better than the Sixers do at this point. Last Friday night against the New York Knicks (the Knicks had a couple of players who ran the Princeton under Jordan), the Sixers went away from the PO. Jordan called tonight a "unique challenge" because of Washington's knowledge of the offense. Jordan mentioned the team might run a lot of pick-and-roll stuff.

Just uploaded a video of the beginning of Jordan's press conference. It should be in the video player at the right.

(For Statman, 127, etc. ... I'm in the process of trying to get cleared to post comments on the new site, as soon as I do, I'll try to jump on there for comments as well.)
