Seen and heard last night at MCI Center:
ON THE MEND Jerry Stackhouse was examined by team physician Steven Haas, and the early prognosis on his ailing left groin was optimistic.
Stackhouse won't be available for tomorrow's home game against Denver, but he might be ready to go Wednesday when the team plays at New Orleans. Haas has given Stackhouse clearance to do some light stretching and work out tomorrow. If he doesn't stiffen up Tuesday, there is a good possibility according to the team that he could be available Wednesday.
The news, however, remains glum for Jahidi White. Last year's starting center has not made a full recovery from the left knee surgery he underwent over the summer.
"He's still trying to get himself right," coach Doug Collins said. "It looks like he's lost some weight, I don't know how much, but he's working hard. I think he's frustrated. I think he would like to see it come around a little bit faster than it is. I think what he's sensing now is, he doesn't have that power back when he jumps. I think that's about as frustrating as anything for him."
FOR THE BIRDS Philadelphia owned the arena in more ways than one. Not only were there more Allen Iverson jerseys on the patrons than any other player's, but Eagles fans made the trip south and repeatedly broke into chants of "E-A-G-L-E-S, EAGLES!"
WIZARDS IN THE LOOKING GLASS The game marked the second in a row that the Wizards have faced a team with an identical record at the start, and both opponents are in the Atlantic Division. The Wizards and Philadelphia were 20-19 at the start of the game. Before Thursday's game with Orlando, both teams were 19-19.
