In his final season in Washington, Stackhouse was limited to just 26 games after struggling to come back from a knee injury. "It's like, I don't want to say it's a curse, but tough things happen to people when they go to that city, as far as injuries."
When asked to expound, Stackhouse lifted his hand and said, "I don't really want to go there."
Josh Howard done for the season with torn ACL Flip says.
Caron Butler (left knee) participated in the morning walkthrough - don't you dare call it shootaround! - & is expected to play 2night in ORL
Forgot actual #wizards news: Mike Miller practiced fully today, is expected to play at #sixers on Tues. What if healthy Wiz started winning?
#Wizards are buzzed for #Cavs Jamison back, Foye practiced, too. Oberto (hamstring) didn't but he still expects to be available tomorrow.
You gotta find your rhythm and find your timing. The key thing I guess is you’re not where you once were–and just from my own experience, I haven’t watched him enough to know–and not to get frustrated with where you are. But also to not get satisfied. There’s sort of that fine line not to be satisfied and just to continue to gather days, weeks, months of health. And as you do that, you’ll start to do things that you did prior to the initial injury, and it’s just a feel. He’s good enough that at 70-80 percent, he can still go out and play at a very high level and go out and score and all those things. But it might be in March when he can all of a sudden make a move or defensively do something, and he’ll just think, wow I haven’t done that in three or four years, and you get that confidence. They key though is to continue to stay healthy, continue to move up and just put together consecutive months of health.
Randy Foye wasn't able to practice today. Sprained ankle remains pretty sore, Flip said.
Antawn Jamison (sick) wasn't at morning shoot. Unlikely to play vs. DET, but will be game-time decision. Mike Miller's probable; Foye's out
While on the subject of team trainers and doctors, is it possible to impose a fine or forced firing when a team trainer or doctor consistently misdiagnoses numerous players? Not to call out any names but certain teams (not here with the Oklahoma City Thunder) employ trainers and doctors who regularly make medical mishaps (if that’s a politically correct way of saying it).
Also, look for Antawn Jamison, and maybe even Mike Miller, to be back for the Wizards on Saturday vs. Pistons.
