Jamison got injured last game (but is playing anyway) and Caron's sorta having a rocky month (missed like 8 shots in a row last night) so it could be iffy.
plus the Raptors always seem to beat us. maybe it's my imagination.
Jamison is playing tonight? Have you heard something recently?
This is the article I read this morning:
WASHINGTON, Jan. 30 (AP)--
Washington Wizards forward Antawn Jamison sprained his left knee in the first quarter of Tuesday night's game against the Detroit Pistons.
Jamison was hurt when he banged knees with teammate DeShawn Stevenson under the basket at the end of a Wizards fast break. Jamison did not return to the game.
Coach Eddie Jordan said Jamison will not travel to Toronto for Wednesday's game against the Raptors.
"We're going to get an MRI on Thursday and then we'll take it from there,'' Jordan said.
Jamison hyperextended the same knee in the first quarter against the Boston Celtics on Jan. 20. Jamison returned to that game, but the knee has been sore in recent days. He was given two days off from practice last week and responded with his two best games of the season: 35 points against Detroit last week and 34 points against Boston on Sunday.
Jamison, averaging 19.3 points and 7.9 rebounds, had surgery on his right knee two years ago.
