Rashard Lewis did not play for the Washington Wizards Sunday night and was not on the bench for the game.

But on Monday everyone around the team has denied that it was due to fight between Lewis and assistant coach Sam Cassell that led Lewis to walk away for a night, as reported by

Above is the video of Lewis, via For more, here are comments via the twitter of Michael Lee of the Washington Post.

Rashard Lewis denied spat with Sam Cassell. “No argument at all. Maybe we because we haven’t won somebody is trying to make up stories.”

Flip Saunders said report of a Lewis-Cassell argument is “not true.” Lewis added he wasn’t on bench because he lacked sports coat

Teams always deny or downplay these kinds of things, so take it with a grain of salt. That said, we don’t know what really went on behind closed doors and how serious anything may or may not have been.

What we know is the 0-8 Wizards are a mess, on and off the court right now.

    I dont care about Sam an Rashard having a little spat, but it is important that any player making that kind of money be professional.
