Wizards center Brendan Haywood watched the team’s game against Phoenix from the bench and what appeared to be in uniform. I exchaned a few texts messages with B-Wood this afternoon and he said that the only reason he was in uniform and “on the bench because I didn’t have a suit jacket and I still wanted to support the guys.”



I asked Haywood if there was any chance that he would make a return some time this week and he replied that there was “no chance” because the Wizards still haven’t had a real practice since he was cleared to resume full contact activity a week ago.


The Wizards, who played two back-to-backs out West only did shoot-arounds last week and had today off before playing tomorrow night at home against Chicago. The team won’t have an actual practice until Tuesday.


Haywood said “I will be back in a suit jacket tomorrow.”
