Antawn Jamison Joins Wizards PracticePosted on January 14, 2013 by FantasticWiz
This morning the Wizards went through a regualr team practice. Then there was one player in Wizards black practice jersey still working on his shooting with assistant coach Dave Hopla after the team practice. Antawn Jamison is working his way back to the action from a right shoulder sprain he injured when he chased after a jumpball tipped by Caron Butler late in a game against the Bucks last Wednesday. He went through practice today and looked really good in the limited action we saw! Here are some quotes from today's practice: WIZARDS FORWARD ANTAWN JAMISON On his shoulder injury: Ã¢â‚¬Å“Everything is going well. The trainers have done a great job getting me back to normal. It was good to get out there and practice today. The last couple of days I have been able to get some rest, and I feel good right now.Ã¢â‚¬ � On the team: Ã¢â‚¬Å“We want to play well in these last five games and put ourselves in the position to be playing our best basketball going into the playoffs. Every game means a lot to us. Our guys are refreshed. I had a couple of games to rest so I feel pretty good. The same goes for Gilbert (Arenas) and Caron (Butler) as well. We can really put our foot on the pedal in these last five games and do what we need to do to win all five games. We want to be able to feel good about ourselves going down the stretch.Ã¢â‚¬ � WIZARDS HEAD COACH EDDIE JORDAN On Antawn Jamison: Ã¢â‚¬Å“Antawn looked great today. He did a lot of good things on the floor. He got hit a few times and came out of there pretty clean.Ã¢â‚¬ �
