Seen and heard last night at MCI Center.
OUT BUT OK Nothing turned up on an MRI of Courtney Alexander's left ankle, but Alexander still did not play. Alexander said he felt "something pop" in the final three minutes of the Wizards's 108-81 loss to Indiana on Thursday.
Coach Doug Collins doesn't want to play Alexander regular minutes until he can get in some practice time. The Wizards will see if he can practice this afternoon. If he can, he'll likely face the Atlantic Division-leading Nets tomorrow night at MCI Center.
SO THERE HE IS Former heavyweight champion Riddick Bowe sat behind one of the baskets. Good to see the big fellow, who has had his share of troubles since retiring, doing well.
STAT STUFF One thing that has been overlooked this season has been the Wizards' effective outside shooting. They rank second in the league in 3-point shooting, making 38.7 percent. Only San Antonio, at 41 percent, ranks higher.
