Last night at Verizon Center:

SEEN AND HEARD

Center Etan Thomas was excused against Toronto to attend to “family matters,” according to a team spokesperson.

Thomas did not travel with the team last night to Atlanta, but Wizards coach Eddie Jordan said Thomas might rejoin the team for tonight’s game with the Hawks.

“We’re hopeful, but we want him to take care of his business and be here with a clear head,” Jordan said.

Thomas started Sunday in place of Brendan Haywood, who could not play because of a sore back. The Golden State game marked Thomas’ first start since he suffered a sprained ankle against Houston on Dec. 9.

This season Thomas has made a career-high 21 starts. He’s averaging 5.5 points and 5.3 rebounds a game.

BY THE NUMBERS

10 Rebounds for Caron Butler in the first half, equaling the number for the Raptors. The Wizards outrebounded the Raptors 23-10 before halftime.
