- The Washington Times - Friday, November 5, 2004

From last night at Charlotte (N.C.) Coliseum:

Washington area natives on the roster of the expansion Bobcats. Guard Bernard Robinson attended Dunbar High School, and guard Keith Bogans went to DeMatha.

KEY PLAY

Just 22 seconds into the game, former Wizard Brevin Knight passed to center Primoz Brezec, who connected for a layup and the first points in Bobcats history. It was the first game in Charlotte since the Hornets left for New Orleans after the 2001-02 season.

SEEN AND HEARD

Kwame Brown, recovering from surgery on his right foot, injured his left ankle during the team’s shootaround yesterday morning. Brown, who hopes to be back by the middle of the month, had X-rays that came back negative.

“I should have slowed down,” said Brown, who suffered the injury while working in 5-on-5 drills at half speed. “That’s how it is when they let you out there for the first time. You’re trying to go harder than you’re supposed to.”
