  1. Yi Jianlian out two to four weeks with knee sprain

    Dec 15, 2010, 2:07 PM EST

    i

    Tuesday night in some jostling under the basket, Ron Artest and Yi Jianlian collided and you could see Yi’s knee buckle a little. Yi still got called for the foul on Ron Ron, of course. Wednesday Yi had an MRI that has showed a sprain in the knee and he will be out two to…

  2. Ron Artest says JaVale McGee is playing too many video games

    Usually when you talk about playing too many video games you’re talking about the national childhood obesity problem. Well, that or you’re an over 50 curmudgeon and think all video games are a blight — “We didn’t have them growing up in the 60s and we got along just fine… by doing a lot of…

  3. Flip Saunders says Wall may never be “painfree”

    Dec 14, 2010, 5:20 PM EST

    John Wall Practice Dance

    Here’s the bad news for Wizards fans, and NBA fans in general, courtesy of The Washington Post’s Michael Lee: Saunders was more definitive about ruling out Wall, who has been kept out of practice and held back from running since finishing with just eight points, six assists and five rebounds against the Knicks. The Wizards…

  4. Andray Blatche had his knee drained. That’s good and bad.

    Dec 14, 2010, 1:15 PM EST

    Andray Blatche

    Andray Blatche likely will not suit up for the Wizards against the Los Angeles Lakers Tuesday night, so it’s JaVale McGee against the entire reconstituted Laker front line. That should go well. But Blatche had his knee drained of fluid, the knee that has kept him out of two of the Wizards previous three games,…

  5. Andrew Bynum: “I’m definitely playing tomorrow”

    Dec 13, 2010, 3:53 PM EST

    Phoenix Suns v Los Angeles Lakers

    The Lakers had a full practice today in Washington D.C. before heading off to meet President Barack Obama, and it sounds like Andrew Bynum had the one full hard practice he wanted before he steps back out on the court (via the LA Times Mike Bresnahan’s twitter account). “I’m definitely playing tomorrow” The Lakers take…

  6. Tyreke Evans has seen the doctor, is still playing

    Dec 8, 2010, 3:34 PM EST

    Tyreke Evans announced yesterday that he was going to see a specialist about the plantar fasciitis that has been bothering him. He stayed behind in Los Angeles after the Kings loss to the Clippers to see the doctor. Evans is expected to be playing tonight when the Wizards come to Sacramento, according to Jason Jones…

  7. Nick Young’s spectacular 360 layup

    Dec 8, 2010, 8:05 AM EST

    Nick Young

    Nick Young — son of Los Angeles that he is — lights it up every time he comes home. He put up 30 on the Lakers Tuesday. None more spectacular than the 360-layup he had in the first half. Young’s been working on that. “I’ve been practicing that for a while,” he said. “Just going…

  8. Game of the night: John Wall and Trevor Booker — who? — make the Lakers work for it

    Dec 8, 2010, 2:36 AM EST

    Washington Wizards v Los Angeles Lakers

    Tuesday night we learned some things about the Washington Wizards — and maybe this is the kind of game where maybe they learned some things about themselves and what it takes to win. What we learned about the Lakers we already knew: That the Lakers are better than the Wizards; That the Lakers are a…

  9. Josh Howard could return to Wizards in about a week

    Dec 7, 2010, 2:33 PM EST

    jhoward

    It’s what is supposed to make the Washington Wizards a better than 6-13 team with a good chance of winning the lottery (again) — a guard rotation of John Wall, Gilbert Arenas, Kirk Hinrich and Josh Howard. The fourth part of that group could be ready soon — Howard told the Washington Post’s Michael Lee…

  10. Magic talking trade for Gilbert Arenas; Wizards deny it

    Dec 1, 2010, 5:18 PM EST

    Arenas_beardshot

    UPDATE 5:18 pm: Wizards owner Ted Leonis shot down this trade rumor, telling the Washington Post that there was no truth to it. “The team is trying to rebuild and Gilbert is one of the leaders on the team,” Leonsis wrote. “Gilbert is the best player on the team right now…. It isn’t true. I…

  11. Hilton Armstrong suspended by league for foul on Heat’s Anthony

    Dec 1, 2010, 12:29 PM EST

    Armstrong_Anthony_foul

    Hilton Armstrong’s shove of an airborne Joel Anthony, which sent the Heat player crashing to the floor, has earned him a one-game suspension from the league. Armstrong will sit out the Wizards game against the Raptors Wednesday night, a punishment handed down by Stu Jackson, NBA Executive Vice President Basketball Operations. It is deserved. At…

  12. Wall, Yi will miss Miami game with injuries

    Nov 29, 2010, 7:11 PM EST

    John Wall Practice Dance

    According to ESPN’s Brian Windhorst, both John Wall and Yi Jianlian will miss tonight’s Heat-Wizards tilt due to knee injuries. Wall has missed five of his last seven games, and he had his worst performance as a pro in his most recent game. Yi has missed the last seven Heat games. This is a bummer…

  13. Games of the night: Where the Clippers pair beats the Kings pair

    gordon_griffin_clippers

    We hope you missed these games because you were with family and giving thanks, or at least because you were rooting against the Cowboys… Hawks 116, Wizards 96: The Hawks played their best game in a couple weeks, which started with them getting the ball inside. With JaVale McGee and Andray Blatche the Wizards have…

  14. Elton Brand ejected after one ugly flagrant two, fine coming

    Nov 23, 2010, 10:57 PM EST

    Image (1) elton_brand-thumb-250x222-21344.jpg for post 4402

    Elton Brand is going to be writing a check to the league soon. In the fourth quarter of the Sixers overtime loss to the Wizards (which never should have gone to overtime, but check out Baseline to Baseline later for that story), JaVale McGee had a wide open dunk and once he was in the…

  15. John Wall game-time decision to get back on court tonight

    Nov 23, 2010, 6:05 PM EST

    Wall_dunk

    UPDATE 6:06 pm: In his pregame comments, Wizards coach Flip Saunders said that Wall would be a game-time decision, to be made after he warmed up. If Wall does play, he will come off the bench, Saunders said. 11: 28 am: For the last week, John Wall has ceded the “ridiculous rookie highlight of the…

  16. Wall practices, still questionable for Tuesday’s game

    Nov 22, 2010, 4:33 PM EST

    John Wall Practice Dance

    According to Craig Stouffer of the Washington Examiner, Wizards rookie guard John Wall practiced today with the team, but coach Flip Saunders says he wants to “see how his foot reacts to practice” before playing him against the Philadelphia 76ers on Tuesday. Wall is currently averaging an extremely impressive 18.1 points, 9.8 assists, and 3.3…

  17. Wizards sign Alonzo Gee

    Nov 22, 2010, 2:58 PM EST

    Wizards Nuggets Basketball

    Alonzo Gee had cult-figure popularity with the Wizards last season, one of the bright spots fans tried to latch onto in an otherwise dismal year. Gee came on with a 10-day contract then worked his way all the way up to being a starter. Then when his deal was up he bolted for the Spurs…

  18. Video: Andray Blatche is terrible at defense

    Nov 18, 2010, 5:42 PM EST

    Andray Blatche

    The Wizards are 26th in the NBA in points allowed and 23rd in defensive efficiency. In the next nine seconds, you will figure out why. We’ve known that Andray Blatche is a terrible defender for a long time now, but now there’s conclusive video proof. Blatche guesses that Rondo is going to reject a Kevin…

  19. John Wall Sprains Foot

    Nov 13, 2010, 11:13 PM EST

    Washington Wizards v Chicago Bulls

    A Rookie of the Year candidate may have a little problem. In the third quarter of Washington’s game against the Bulls, John Wall left the game with a foot injury. It’s been diagnosed as a sprained foot, via Michael Lee. Wall had 13 and 5 when he left the contest after it bothering him for…

  20. Why you don’t want to walk a mile in Andray Blatche’s shoes, and what he did to earn it

    Nov 12, 2010, 6:59 PM EST

    [kml_flashembed movie="http://www.youtube.com/v/9thi8tBbC6Q?fs=1&hl=en_US" height="205" width="320" /]

    It’s one of the more legendary locker room pranks, a move that crosses pretty much every line of decorum, which makes it especially gross or funny — or both — depending on how you view things. It was vintage Gilbert Arenas. It’s a story Michael Lee told in the Washington Post in the wake of…

  21. John Wall’s triple-double, we have video evidence

    Nov 11, 2010, 8:17 AM EST

    [kml_flashembed movie="http://www.youtube.com/v/1dSPUIvaJwY?version=3" height="205" width="320" /]

    John Wall is just fun to watch play the game. Fast and smooth. Last night he picked up his first NBA triple-double — 20 points, 13 assists and 10 boards. The only guys to get a triple-double faster in the NBA have names like Magic and Oscar. And Wall is still just figuring it out,…

  22. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Where this Wall kid, we kind of like him

    Nov 11, 2010, 4:24 AM EST

    Houston Rockets v Washington Wizards

    What you missed while trying to wrap your head around the idea the T-Rex was probably covered with feathers… Our game of the night had the Jazz completing a sweep of Florida by beating the Magic. Get the details here. Wizards 98, Rockets 91: Triple-double for young John Wall in this one — 20 points,…

  23. Gilbert Arenas admits he feared being booed

    Nov 10, 2010, 2:04 PM EST

    Arenas_drive

    Gilbert Arenas always came off as a guy above it, a guy who didn’t care what you think. He was playing the game, his way, you could love it or leave it. Agent Zero was footloose and care free. Except that’s not the case, especially after last season’s gun suspension. He missed a home game…

  24. Wizards coach Flip Saunders walks off court during practice, disgusted by effort

    Nov 8, 2010, 2:43 PM EST

    Flip Saunders

    You could tell when my favorite high school hoops coach was really mad — he wouldn’t say anything. He would yell to motivate, to get points across. But when he was genuinely enraged (and our team could do that to you) he just stared and said nothing and walked away. Sounds like Flip Saunders. Saunders…

  25. Gilbert Arenas to make his return tonight in New York

    Nov 5, 2010, 3:02 PM EST

    Arenas_beardshot

    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…
