WASHINGTON | Gilbert Arenas still has a sore right ankle and could miss the Washington Wizards’ season opener.

Arenas sat out practice for the second straight day Monday. Coach Flip Saunders said the ankle has some fluid buildup and the team will have to “wait to see how it is” ahead of Thursday’s opener at Orlando.

Arenas sprained the ankle during training camp, then later missed two preseason games with a strained right groin. He also missed a game when he faked a knee injury, drawing a fine from the team.

Saunders said he’d like to have Arenas, but the team has played a lot without the former three-time All-Star and can be effective without him.

Arenas is attempting a comeback after last season’s 50-game suspension for a felony gun conviction.
