Seen and heard last night at MCI Center:
WAITING ON WAGNER: The Cleveland Cavaliers have yet to see what their top pick from this year's draft, guard Dajuan Wagner, can do because he has been on the injured list with a bladder infection. When he comes back, which Cleveland coach John Lucas said likely will happen Nov.12 when the Cavaliers play at Indiana, Wagner will be inserted into the starting lineup at point guard.
"Right away," Lucas said when asked when Wagner will start. "We can't keep him out. He's a guy we're expecting a lot of big things from."
When Wagner returns, former Wizard Milt Palacio will head to the bench.
GLASS HALF-FULL: Before the game, Lucas didn't know what to expect from his team, which was coming off a huge upset of the Los Angeles Lakers the night before.
Lucas was not without perspective on the victory, though.
"It was one game," Lucas said of the win against the Lakers, who are still without Shaquille O'Neal. "And honestly, we beat half the Lakers."
