Last night at Verizon Center:


The Wizards are hoping this is the last game in which their roster resembles a M*A*S*H unit.

Caron Butler, sent home from New Jersey on Wednesday to have his back examined, underwent an MRI that revealed no structural damage. He was close to playing against Miami.

Coach Eddie Jordan said he “would have played” Butler if he felt OK after warmups. Those warmups did not go as well as planned.

Antawn Jamison (sprained left knee) is also close to returning. Jamison did not play against the Heat as teammate Gilbert Arenas predicted, but Jordan said Jamison has had time to heal and is leaving the date of the forward’s return up to him.

“It’s pretty much his call,” Jordan said. “You have the medical timetable, and you have the player’s timetable.”

Asked whether Jamison would be available tomorrow, Jordan sounded optimistic.

“Oh, yes, there’s a chance,” Jordan said.


1 Wizards victory over the Heat in their last 17 games.
