    Wizards G Gilbert Arenas undergoes left knee surgery, to miss 3 months


    By MIKE CRANSTON, AP Sports Writer

    CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) -- Washington Wizards leading scorer Gilbert Arenas underwent surgery on his left knee on Wednesday and will miss about three months.

    Arenas had been experiencing swelling and soreness in the knee which he had surgically repaired late last season. After sitting out the past two games, Arenas underwent an MRI Wednesday morning. He underwent the surgery later in the afternoon.
    Team officials say the surgery was a success and Arenas will begin rehabilitation soon.
    The 6-foot-4 Arenas is averaging 22.4 points
    That hurts the Wiz.

    not that portland and philly are "elite" but the wizards handled both of them in the last week without gil. they play GSW on friday so that might be a little better test. but i think they have a better shot than the pacers do at making the playoffs.
    This is the darkest timeline.

    I voted no, but that's with the assumption that the Bulls will somehow remember how to play basketball.

    Check to see if Bibby's available. He'll be coming around in a couple weeks.

    But, yeah, major hit.

    The East is so bad everyone has a shot.
    "They could turn out to be only innocent mathematicians, I suppose," muttered Woevre's section officer, de Decker.

    "'Only.'" Woevre was amused. "Someday you'll explain to me how that's possible. Seeing that, on the face of it, all mathematics leads, doesn't it, sooner or later, to some kind of human suffering."

    They still have Butler and Jamison. I think they're definitely in.

    I don't know. Butler and Jamison are good, but I don't see them being able to keep it up for 3 months, even in the East. I could be wrong, but I just don't see it happening.

    They're both 20ppg scorers, along with Butler being a great defender. Add in Haywood (averaging double-double this year) and Antonio Daniels and they still have a solid team.

    BTW, Butler put up 39 tonight and Jamison had 27 and 12 in their win over Charlotte.

    The Wiz have no shot without Hibachi. They went 2-11 after he went down last year, including a First Round sweep at the hands of a highly flawed Cleveland squad.

    Jamison will miss some game here and there too which I think is what will really hurt them.

    Why couldn't he have suffered this injury before the last game against the
    Pacers?

    I hope he has a nice looong comfy rehab.
