After sitting out Sunday’s practice and this morning’s shoot-around while resting a strained right patella tendon, Washington Wizards forward Antawn Jamison will give it a go tonight against the visiting Milwaukee Bucks.



Jamison injured the knee in Saturday’s loss to the Charlotte Bobcats and had been listed as a game-time decision for tonight.


But he told coach Ed Tapscott that he is ready to play tonight, which comes as no surprise for Jamison, whom Tapscott calls a “true warrior” and who hasn’t missed a game this season.


Otherwise, it’s the same starting lineup for the Wizards: Guard’s Mike James and Caron Butler, and forward Dominic McGuire along with Jamison and center Andray Blatche.
