Wizards Vs. Magic: Rashard Lewis out, Nick Young probable

New, comments

A couple quick injury updates before tomorrow's Wizards-Magic game (because it's our favorite topic!), via Michael Lee of the Washington Post.  

 

  • Rashard Lewis will sit out again and get a head start on the rest he'll get at this weekend's All-Star Break.  That means he won't play in his return to Orlando.  The good news for him is he will be able to see the Magic continue to place him on billboards outside their arena.
  • Nick Young sat out with a knee injury he apparently suffered against the Cavaliers, but he's going to try to play on Wednesday.  Hence, "probable."  At this point, there's no need for Young to practice if he isn't 100 percent healthy, so I'm cool with it all.  He's also pretty durable anyway.  Then again, with this team, you never know.
Either way, it's still an important game as we head into the All-Star Break.  I won't go as far as Bullet Nation in Exile and say it'll set the tone for the rest of the season, because there's a long break where that momentum dies, but it's still important.  Hopefully, the guys have some pride and remember the season opener.
