Last night at Delta Center in Salt Lake City:

JORDAN SPEAKS: Washington Wizards coach Eddie Jordan has not talked to Larry Hughes about the guard’s recent displeasure with the team’s focus on getting the ball inside and running more set plays.

Instead, Jordan addressed it and indicated it was not a problem. He also said that, even though he has an open-door policy and encourages any of his players to walk through it if they have a gripe, ultimately he makes any final decision.

“That’s the way he feels,” said Jordan, who added Hughes has not broached the subject with him. “Coaches coach and players play. We pretty much have a democratic society around here. I listen to them, and the final decision is mine. So we’ll play the way I feel is best for us to play.”

INJURY UPDATES: Antawn Jamison, out with tendinitis in his right knee, will be eligible to come off the injured list Sunday when the Wizards play at Seattle, but it is unlikely the team will activate him that soon.

Juan Dixon, meanwhile, might be out for the remainder of the five-game swing with a sprained right ankle. He has missed Washington’s last four games and six of the last seven.
