Last night at Philips Arena:

SEEN AND HEARD

Both Caron Butler and Antonio Daniels suffered injuries against Boston that could become problematic.

Butler, the Wizards’ starting small forward who is averaging 17.3 points a game, missed last night with a sprained right thumb, suffered when he jammed it against Boston’s Paul Pierce’s leg late in the Wizards’ 108-91 win at Boston on Wednesday.

Daniels suffered a sprained left wrist in that same game when he tried to break his fall after a slam dunk.

Although they are going to be listed as day-to-day, Wizards are going to be very careful with these injuries. Don’t be surprised if both players miss today’s game against Miami and Monday’s game in Philadelphia. Both players wore stabilizing splints yesterday as they watched the game in street clothes.

BY THE NUMBERS

10 Games this season in which Gilbert Arenas has scored at least 40 points.

KEY TO THE GAME

The Hawks went 39-for-49 from the free-throw line, while the Wizards were 18-for-24.
