As expected, Wizards guard Gilbert Arenas was held out of Sunday night's game at Indiana to allow his surgically repaired left knee more time to rest.
Arenas had 15 points against Detroit on Saturday night in his
first game in 11 months, but coach Ed Tapscott says Arenas will not
play back-to-back games and his playing time will be limited to
about 28 minutes when he does appear.
Tapscott says Arenas was "feeling fine" after playing against
the Pistons. "No knee soreness at all, just the muscle soreness
that comes with playing your first high-level game in a while."
The 98-96 loss to the Pistons was Arenas' first game since April
27, 2008. The three-time All-Star had missed 156 of his Wizards'
previous 173 games and had three surgeries over an 18-month span
amid two premature comeback attempts.
