Question of the Day
James stays home
The only Wizards player not to make the road trip was backup point guard Mike James, who has played only one game this season.
James received DNPs in the first five games this season and the day after getting his first action - he recorded six points and three assists against the Indiana Pacers on Nov. 6 - broke his left ring finger. He missed the next 13 games and went through two practices last week but still was listed as inactive for Washington’s games against the Boston Celtics and Indiana.
Saunders said James needed more practice time to work his way back into game shape. James remained in the District to continue his conditioning program because, with four games in a six-day span, the Wizards were scheduled to practice only twice.
Fellow backup point guard Javaris Crittenton, who has yet to play this season while he rehabs from a bone bruise and exploratory surgery on his left foot, did make the trip and said he is “coming along” and that he hopes to return to action soon.
