Seen and heard last night at MCI Center:

HEALTH WATCH: Guard Juan Dixon will be eligible to come off the injured list Friday when the Wizards play at New Jersey, but that's not going to happen. Dixon, placed on the injured list Dec. 2 with a sprained left elbow, will have an MRI today. Dixon, who injured the elbow in practice after scoring a season-high 18 points against Philadelphia, could be out for another three weeks.

Center Jahidi White is still nowhere near being ready to contribute. White underwent surgery on his left knee this summer and is rehabbing. White probably won't be ready until at least mid-January.

The Wizards cleared room to add a player to the roster when they released Ratko Varda on Saturday. However, the Wizards have no such plans right now.

UNSELD OUT IN FRONT: Believe it or not, Wizards general manager Wes Unseld's old No. 41 Bullets jersey is the highest-selling among retired players. Surprisingly, Michael Jordan's jersey is not the top-selling one among active players. He's fourth behind Boston's Paul Pierce, Philadelphia's Allen Iverson and the Los Angeles Lakers' Kobe Bryant.
