    Default poor Wizards when it rains it poors Stack out for rest of year

    WASHINGTON -- Wizards swingman Jerry Stackhouse plans to sit out the remainder of the year to rest his ailing left knee.



    Stackhouse's latest injury was caused by overcompensating for his injured right knee, which kept him out for most of the season and never fully healed.



    He talked with Coach Eddie Jordan and his teammates after he scored 20 points in 31 minutes of play in Saturday's 122-110 loss to the Los Angeles Lakers, and that they support his decision.



    "They see me laboring out on the floor," Stackhouse said. "It takes a toll on my whole body. ... I've got to get back to being Jerry Stackhouse."



    Stackhouse, the Wizards' leading scorer last season, played his first game of the season Feb. 1 against Cleveland, and averaged 10.6 points per game in 11 games before his 20-point effort Saturday.



    He said after Saturday's game that he rushed his return to the lineup.



    "I've got to start thinking with my head instead of my heart," he said.



    Stackhouse's exit means the Wizards are without their leading scorer from last year and this year. Larry Hughes had been averaging nearly 19 points a game before going on the injured list earlier this month with a broken left wrist.

    Man, this is scary.

    I hope the Pacers never trade for a Pistons player.

    First, Grant Hill...Now, Jerry Stackhouse.

    seems like he is just giving up and doesnt wanna risk more career ending injuries to his knees with a crappy team.
