WASHINGTON (AP) - Washington Wizards guard Gilbert Arenas left his first home game since being suspended for bringing guns to the Verizon Center last season with a strained right groin.

Arenas didn’t start Thursday night’s preseason game against the Milwaukee Bucks, two days after faking a knee injury to miss a home game. He left after playing three minutes in the first quarter.

Arenas didn’t attempt a shot, but had three steals, a rebound, an assist and a blocked shot. He teamed with John Wall on some neat passes.

Arenas entered with 7:05 to play in the first quarter to tepid applause from the sparse home crowd and seemed to savor playing with Wall before asking out of the game three minutes later.

He was fined Wednesday for saying he had a sore left knee.
