Last night at Verizon Center:

SEEN AND HEARD

Although Miami’s Dwyane Wade has dominated against the Wizards throughout his career, Wizards coach Eddie Jordan was not happy to see the MVP of last year’s finals go down with a separated shoulder that will keep him out for an extended period of time.

“You see it and it’s unfortunate for him,” Jordan said. “As much as you guys think we’re happy about it we’re not. It seems like a severe injury and I just hope he gets well. We coached him in the All-Star Game over the weekend and we got to know him. We hope that he comes up pretty good.”

The Wizards play host to the Heat on Wednesday.

“I hope he takes at least a week to recover,” a joking Jordan added.

QUOTABLE

“It’s a sad thing. I knew Dennis very well. It’s a shock. It’s unfortunate. … He seemed to be energetic and young and doing something he loved. It’s just a sad thing.”

— Jordan on the sudden death of former Boston Celtics star Dennis Johnson, who died of a heart attack yesterday. Johnson was 52.
