Gilbert Arenas to make his return tonight in New York

Seems somehow fitting to have Gilbert Arenas return to the game on a big stage.

Arenas will make his return tonight at Madison Square Garden against the Knicks, according to the official Wizards twitter account.

Arenas missed the end of training camp and the start of the season with a sprained ankle. Tonight marks his return from a 50 game suspension last season due to bringing guns into the Wizards locker room, an incident that also led to legal issues.

Arenas looked pretty good in preseason, playing more of a classic two-guard role next to John Wall.

No word officially, although you’d suspect Arenas will come off the bench for a few games and work his way into game shape. This will mean fewer minutes for Nick Young and eventually Kirk Hinrich will move from starter to gunner off the bench to make room for Arenas.

    Let’s hope Gilbert isn’t attacked by asbestos… oops, shouldn’t give him any ideas.

    spot up game looked good in the preseason, Wall should give him plenty of open looks and protect his knee from the wear and tear cuts a point has to make all game long, all season long. Should shoot mid 40’s. He’s going to struggle taking on bigger guards but Mcgee should protect him somewhat from get drove on. Can’t wait to get J. Howard at 3 with Heinrich coming off of the bench. should be fun to watch…Go Wiz!
