Agent Zero said in the locker room before tonight’s game that he is waiting on team clearance before he can return to game action, and that the Wizards’ medical staff wants him to undergo an MRI before giving him the OK.
“It’s up to them. Ask the Docs,” said Arenas, who has missed all but eight games this season with a second knee surgery since he tore a meniscus in April 2007. “They want me to get one more MRI to make sure everything’s OK in there. After I get my MRI, if everything’s OK, we’ll see if they clear me.”
Arenas said he will likely have the MRI done on Tuesday, the day before Washington heads to Orlando for Wednesday’s game against the Magic.
So, if he’s cleared, does that mean he will play Wednesday?
“Maybe,” a smiling Arenas said. “Maybe.”
Given the latest news, I’d say Wednesday is obviously the soonest that he could be back and at longest he’ll probably be back for the game on March 25th at Portland.
