Last night at MCI Center:


393-pointers attempted by Golden State, the most an opponent has launched against the Wizards this season.


Jarvis Hayes broke his right patella Sunday when he landed badly after a dunk. The Wizards originally hoped the injury was tendinitis and that Hayes would be able to return after two weeks of rest. Instead, Hayes will miss the next four-to-six weeks.

The Wizards, who expect Hayes back for the playoffs, likely will activate guard Juan Dixon (right ankle) for tonight’s game at Charlotte.

“I’m disappointed about this injury,” Hayes said. “I was excited to do everything I could to help get this team to the playoffs. I’m going to work hard during the rehabilitation process, and I’m looking forward to rejoining my teammates.”

The 10th overall pick in the 2003 draft, Hayes is averaging career highs in points (10.2), rebounds (4.2) and assists (1.7). …

Bobby Dandridge, a forward on the Washington Bullets’ 1977-78 championship team, was honored at halftime. Dandridge averaged 18.3 points in four seasons with the franchise.
