Seen and heard last night at Philips Arena in Atlanta:

BROWN TO SIT Wizards rookie Kwame Brown sat out with a sprained ankle he suffered against New York in the opener. Before the game, Wizards coach Doug Collins said that Brown wouldn't be back until the Boston game Nov. 7, at the earliest.
"It's something that he has done repeatedly," Collins said. "Like I've said before, if he were a veteran player he might be able to get back a little bit sooner. But he doesn't have the experience to play through an injury right now, so we're not going to rush him back."
Collins joked that Brown, even with the injury, was quicker than Popeye Jones.

JOINED ON THE COUCH Michael Jordan watches game tape like a hawk watches a rabbit. Sometimes he's the only one watching it.
However, he was joined in the visitors' locker room by teammates Tyronn Lue, Popeye Jones and Courtney Alexander to watch clips from the Hawks' season-opening loss to Houston.
Jordan was fixated on last night's assignment, Dion Glover, as if he were the second coming of Walt Frazier. His teammates were clearly taking notice.
