Jason Collins came out, got widely congratulated for his courage, and the games went on.
Last summer, NBA veteran Jason Collins considered joining an old Stanford college roommate, U.S. Rep. Joseph Kennedy III, at Boston's gay pride parade.
Washington Wizards center Jason Collins on Monday became the first "active" player in the "big four" of American professional sports to reveal he is gay, and the immediate reaction from athletes was overwhelmingly supportive.
Jason Collins nearly got Rick Welts into $200 worth of trouble.
"The No. 1 thing we need to get is to get our players' health right," Grunfeld said. "Rest up this summer, get our health right, come back next year with all our players, and there'll be some additions in the offseason."
"With a healthy roster, I think we played 22 games," Martell Webster said. "And those were an amazing 22 games. Scary team."
The Wizards announced before their game at the Toronto Raptors on Wednesday that Beal has a stress injury in his right fibula and is expected to resume basketball-related activities in about six weeks.
Washington Wizards shooting guard Bradley Beal will miss the rest of his rookie season with a right leg injury.
Wall was 8 for 17 from the field and 11 for 13 at the free throw line as the Wizards maintained pursuit of their goal of becoming the best team not to make the playoffs. They want to pass the Philadelphia 76ers and finish ninth in the Eastern Conference.
Bradley Beal scored 24 points in his return to the lineup as Washington moved into a tie with Toronto for 10th place in the Eastern Conference.
John Wall scored a career-high 47 points and added eight assists, Emeka Okafor had 21 points and nine rebounds, and the undermanned Washington Wizards beat the Memphis Grizzlies, 107-94 Monday night at Verizon Center.
Wall and Wizards coach Randy Wittman appeared to exchange unpleasant words during a timeout late in the third quarter, but Wall rallied with eight fourth-quarter points to hold off the Bucks' comeback.
Washington turned the ball over 24 times, leading to 30 points by Minnesota. Nene had 12 points and eight boards and Emeka Okafor added 10 points and 14 rebounds for the Wizards, who squandered a 44-34 advantage on the boards against the short-handed Wolves.
Beal went down with a sprained ankle with 2:08 left in the fourth quarter. After being attended to by a trainer, Beal was carried off the court and through the tunnel by two teammates, keeping weight completely off both his legs.
The record is still an eyesore at 18-37, but it is a significant improvement over the 4-28 mark the team "boasted" not that long ago.
Bradley Beal, who just finished his rookie season with the Wizards, told The Washington Times that his opinion of Collins hasn't changed at all and won't change.
Wizards guard Bradley Beal wrote in a text message.
