Gilbert Might Be Back In The Mix Saturday

Agent Zero might make his return to the Washington Wizards this weekend. Pointess? Yes. Fun? Hell yeah!

The Washington Wizards three-time All-Star hasn’t played all season as he recovers from knee surgery. He first sent a text message to Comcast SportsNet saying: “I’m playing Saturday against Detroit.”

After the team’s morning shootaround Monday, Arenas was asked by a Washington Post reporter if the news was true. Arenas said “it’s only true if I play on Saturday.”

Arenas then told The Washington Times by phone that playing Saturday is “the plan” — but isn’t set in stone.

Somewhere in the middle was interim coach Ed Tapscott. He said it’s a possibility.

The Wizards stink and they’ll still lose the games they have with Gilbert Areanas in the line up anyways, but I’d be happy to see him give it a shot this weekend. At the very least it’ll be an excuse to drink some beer with friends and watch a decent Wizards game. So lets hope ole Gil comes back.
