From the Washington Times:
Jones:Gil said that even before the third surgery he was going to miss training camp and wasn't expecting to play until January. Was that a surprise to you?
A.D.: I don't really know. I'm not really educated enough on microfracture surgery and how long it takes, so if he had told me that he was gonna miss training camp, I'd just figure it was a precautionary move and it's an extra two weeks to rest and give it more time to heal.
So, is this just another indicator of lack of communication? If so, does Arenas have an obligation to inform the guy who will be filling in for him?
Daniels also says that he declined to have surgery on his wrist after seeking a second opinion. I sure hope the doctors are right in his case, because that wrist will be seeing a lot more action.
Over at Hoops Addict, they are holding a Floor Burn Tournament for all those "glue guys" who do intangible dirty deeds on the court. Antonio Daniels was nominated for the Wizards and is going against Thaddeus Young in round one.
Other Wizards, such as Songaila, Stevenson, and Butler come to mind as "floor burners," but it seems like AD was the best choice to represent since he's never afraid to put his body on the line, almost to a fault.
But there's no question that Dominic McGuire could should be the future floor burner for the Wiz. In any case, make your way over to vote for Antonio....and don't worry, you won't have to sign up for jury duty to do so.
