Having a tight hammy, and thus leaving last Friday’s Magic game at half, wasn’t going to stop Caron Butler from donning a secret service outfit, diamond encrusted wrist bling, and celebrating his 29th birthday at one of his favorite spots, the Park at 14th.
From Wizards Outlet:
He said that he was feeling pretty good the last week after sitting out three games the previous week, but when he made a move to the basket against Orlando, the hamstring clinched up. He’s been getting treatment ever since then and it has yet to improve. Here’s to hoping it’s nothing worse than just the tightness it has been classified as.
Butler is scheduled to have an MRI on his bothersome hamstring today, so his status for even traveling to Utah this afternoon for the upcoming four game road trip is seemingly up in the air.
Coach Ed Tapscott has said that there are no plans to hold Butler out of the final 16 games. But who really knows? Just like we can’t be sure if Brendan Haywood will see the court, even though he’s evidently been medically cleared to practice.
Either way, Wizards fans should not care. More time for the Wiz kids, makes those development focused tankers happy. The possibility of seeing a full team on the court, teasing us until whenever the next disappointment may be, can’t really be argued against either.
Uhh…..go team go.
Antawn Jamison says (via Wizards Insider):
After the game, I asked Antawn Jamison whether he expected to see Gilbert Arenas before the regular season ends. My gut tells me that he’s not coming back but, as we all know when it comes to Arenas, I could certainly be wrong. The guy marches to the beat of his own drummer.
Anyway, Jamison’s thoughts: “That’s something that is way off in left field. I’m just concentrating on who has been practicing and been playing and who can play. It would be nice to see him and Brendan (Haywood) before the season’s over. It wouldn’t surprise me if it does. Actually, it would surprise me a little bit but, the most important thing for me is to see the guy (Arenas) healthy next year.”
