Gilbert Arenas is offering mixed signals about a possible return to the court Saturday against the Detroit Pistons.
The Washington Wizards three-time All-Star hasn't played all season
as he recovers from knee surgery. He first sent a text message to Comcast SportsNet saying: "I'm playing Saturday against Detroit."
After the team's morning shootaround Monday, Arenas was asked by
a Washington Post reporter if the news was true. Arenas said "it's
only true if I play on Saturday."
Arenas then told The Washington Times by phone that playing
Saturday is "the plan" - but isn't set in stone.
Somewhere in the middle was interim coach Ed Tapscott. He said
it's a possibility.
