Gilbert Arenas is essentially done for the season. The Washington point guard had surgery yesterday for a left knee injury that will sideline him for 2 to 3 months. Even the most optimistic scenario has him coming back only if his team makes the NBA Finals, which will be difficult without him. "It's pretty much down," said guard DeShawn Stevenson, assessing the mood of the locker room after yesterday's practice. "But at the same time, we are a playoff team. We have to worry about the playoffs and winning games.

NEW YORK - When NBA commissioner David Stern announced the forgone conclusion of John Wall as the No. 1 pick to the Washington Wizards, putting on the cap was more than a rite of passage. It symbolized how far Wall has come. It might be hard to believe, but the 6-4 dynamo of a guard was an afterthought only a few years ago. As a sophomore, he was cut from his Broughton High School team in North Carolina - just like Michael Jordan - because of attitude problems. Getting cut is far in his rearview mirror.

The government indicated it will not seek more than 6 months, although the judge can give Arenas anywhere from probation to the maximum term of 5 years. Arenas did not speak to reporters on the way into D.C. Superior Court, shaking his head when asked if he wanted to tell fans anything, or when he walked down the block to police headquarters after his 20-minute hearing.

For the 76ers this season, beating the Washington Wizards has been a little like going to the dentist: show up, get it over with, move on. Maybe that's why, in the locker room after last night's 106-98 victory at the Verizon Center, it was difficult to tell whether the Sixers had won or lost. "We got a little sloppy toward the end," guard Willie Green said. "We just take it as a win," said a stoic Andre Iguodala, who was one rebound from a triple-double. "We just needed a win to have a win," Sixers coach Tony DiLeo said.
