Wizards' Arenas Will Miss At Least First 2 Games

Published October 27, 2010

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — Gilbert Arenas will miss at least the first two regular-season games for the Washington Wizards with a strained tendon in his right ankle.

Arenas was in a walking boot and missed his fourth straight practice Wednesday. Wizards coach Flip Saunders says Arenas will be reevaluated by doctors but will be out Thursday at Orlando and Saturday at Atlanta.

Arenas injured the ankle during training camp, then later missed two preseason games with a strained right groin. He is attempting to come back from last season's 50-game suspension for a felony gun conviction.

Arenas also faked an injury earlier this preseason before actually getting hurt.
