Last night at KeyArena in Seattle

KEY NUMBER

32Years between season sweeps of the Sonics for the Wizards.

SEEN AND HEARD

RAMOS GETS NOD: With Brendan Haywood back in the Washington area and out of the lineup perhaps until the end of the regular season with a fractured left thumb, the Wizards activated rookie center Peter John Ramos, whom they drafted with the 32nd pick last summer.

But don’t expect to see too much of the 7-foot-3, 19-year-old in the coming days.

“It’s far from the focus of what we’re doing tonight,” Wizards coach Eddie Jordan said. “If it’s a competitive situation as far as the game, time and score, it’s unlikely we’ll use him. If the game is out of hand one way or the other, he’ll get a chance to play.”

TAKE A NEUTRAL CORNER: One thing the Wizards won’t have to worry about is a squabble between Haywood, whom they placed on the injured list, and Kwame Brown. Brown and Haywood had to be separated on the bench in the waning moments of the Wizards’ 98-94 loss to the Los Angeles Clippers on Friday.

“Brendan’s on the East Coast, and Kwame’s on the West Coast,” Jordan said.
