  • Trevor Ariza is expected to miss quite some time after injuring his left calf in Tuesday's win. Randy Wittman guessed three weeks, but nobody really knows yet. [CSN Washington | Washington Post |

  • There's an interesting nugget buried in this really good feature on SportVU, the missile-tracking camera service that the Wizards and 13 other teams use.

If true, it's an interesting step for an organization that has a reputation for not treating injuries well. It also might explain Nene's minutes limit and John Wall's slow-ish recovery from a stress injury. [FOX Sports North]
