Default Arenas' return.

Okay, so Arenas has played two games now coming back from his injury. What are everyone's thoughts on his return?

Default Re: Arenas' return.

The stats don't lie:

Exactly 20 minutes in both matches.

V Mil: 17/1/2. Yeah he had 4 TOs, but it was his first game. Very impressed with his shooting. Certainly something he hasn't lost.

V Mia: 13/5/8. Excellent statline. Obviously very involved during all 20 minutes. Took 10 shots, dished out 8 dimes, 5 rebs is good as well.

I'm certainly impressed. I can't say I saw it first hand, but I did watch highlights of the Milwaukee game, and he looked good.

Well he didn't play too much, so it's not for sure what we can all think of him. He did play well in the minutes given. Obviously glad to have him back and can't wait for him to play his full minutes.

The training staff decided just for precautionary measures.

Quote:
"The training staff looked at him (Arenas)," said assistant coach Mike O'Koren on before Saturday's game. "They're going to be real, real delicate with Gilbert. He's coming back from injury. He looked fine. He obviously is in great shape, great condition."
From NBA.com

No point him playing in menial games like this.

Arenas said in one of his blogs that the team he hated to face the most was the Chicago Bulls because of their smothering defense. He didn't want to put too much pressure on his ankle against them.
