The Wizards get Javaris Crittenton back tonight after the second-year guard missed Thursday’s game with back spasms. Fellow point guard Gilbert Arenas is out of the lineup to rest his knee. Wizards coach Ed Tapscott said Arenas’ knee is fine, and that the move is just out of precaution. Arenas logged 34 minutes Thursday against the Cavaliers, and since the plan was for him to play only a select number of games, everyone decided for him to take tonight off.
The starting lineup will be Caron Butler and Antawn Jamison at forward, Brendan Haywood at center, Dominic McGuire and Crittenton in the back court.
Miami is expected to start Jamario Moon and Udonis Haslem at forward, Jermaine O’Neal at center, Dwyane Wade and Mario Chalmers at the guard positions.
