Default More Tough Breaks for the Wiz

Yuck! This team has some bad karma or something. Do wizards even need karma? Well they need something.

At the end of training camp, Washington Wizards head coach Eddie Jordan said that his primary goal was to keep to his team healthy through the preseason so they would be at full force when the season started with the exception of Gilbert Arenas. Just four minutes into their 108-82 preseason loss to to the Dallas Mavericks that goal was already in jeopardy.

Midway through the the first quarter, two-time All-Star forward Antawn Jamison injured his knee and had to be helped off the floor. The initial diagnosis was that his knee was sprained, and after the game the Wizardsí team spokesman announced that had changed that to a strain. More details about Jamisonís knee will be given in the coming days.

Coming into the preseason opener against the Mavericks, the Wizards were already dealing with the possibility of losing Brendan Haywood for a significant amount of time. Haywood did not make the trip to Dallas with the team, so that he could seek a second opinion on the wrist he injured during training camp last week. Haywood told Comcast SportsNet in Washington DC, that surgery is definitely an option, and if it comes to that, he could miss 4 to 6 months.

Losing Haywood will be as devastating as losing any of their big three offensive weapons, their interior defense and rebounding is going to be absolutely embarrasing. Oh well, the only way this franchise is going anywhere at this point is if they pull a Heat and end up with a top three pick next year.
