Yesterday at Target Center in Minneapolis

SEEN AND HEARD

There still is no telling exactly when the Wizards will have Antawn Jamison (sprained knee) back in the lineup. However, Wizards coach Eddie Jordan said it is unlikely Jamison, who is on this road trip, will return in time for tomorrow’s game at New Jersey.

More immediately, the playing status of Caron Butler also is in question, although it is more likely he will be available to play against the Nets.

Butler was said to be in the building but wasn’t available in the locker room after the loss. He did issue a statement through the team concerning his condition: “My back was bothering me for several days. I talked to the training staff, and we felt it was best to sit this game out. We’ll make an evaluation tomorrow to see how I feel and how I respond to treatment.”

QUOTABLE

“We took the gas out of them. I was just feeling myself a little tonight, that’s all, feeling good, shooting the ball real good.”

Minnesota guard Ricky Davis, who finished with a game-high 27 points

BY THE NUMBERS

8 Combined shots made out of 42 taken by Jarvis Hayes (1-for-10), Andray Blatche (3-for-10) and Gilbert Arenas (4-for-22).
