The Wizards, after two straight lopsided losses, will get second-leading scorer Caron Butler back from the flu today as they play host to the Indiana Pacers.

Butler took part in shootaround this morning, and coach Ed Tapscott just said during his pre-game press conference that the swingman, who is averaging 20.0 points a game, will start.

 

With Butler back in the lineup, Mike James will move back to point guard, sending second-year player Javaris Crittenton back to the bench despite a solid 10-point, seven-assist performance on Friday night.

 

The Wizards also will start Dominic McGuire and Antawn Jamison at forward and Darius Songaila at center.
