Seen and heard last night at FleetCenter in Boston:

STACKHOUSE RESULTS — The results of an MRI on Jerry Stackhouse’s knees and ankles revealed no damage. However, there is no timetable for the return of the Wizards forward, who last played a week ago against the Los Angeles Lakers.

“He could tell us on Sunday that he feels good and that he’s ready to play,” coach Eddie Jordan said. “Or he could show up Sunday and tell us he needs another week.”

IMPETUS — From the current issue of Sports Illustrated: “Teams get into trouble when they spend too much on role players — such as Gilbert Arenas, who is never going to justify the six-year, $64 million deal the Wizards gave him.”

Said Arenas, who missed 26 games this season with an abdominal injury: “It’s easy to judge somebody when they are hurt after they sign the contract, but tell them to judge me now. I heard about it a couple of days ago. I’ve got a little fire in me. Now that I’m healthy I want him to judge me now. Have I proven anything to this guy? Obviously, I haven’t because they are writing it. But you always have critics. I love ‘em. If they’ve got enough [guts] to write it, then I’ve got enough [guts] to prove them wrong. I’ll tell you one thing. He doesn’t want to stick me.”
