Gilbert Arenas is still not 100 percent back after knee surgery, but he had enough in his game to ruin the 76ers' chance at a top-five playoff seeding. Playing in only his fifth game since Nov. 17 surgery, Arenas scored 12 of his 20 points in the fourth quarter as the Washington Wizards defeated the Sixers 109-93 last night before a sellout crowd of 20,173 at the Verizon Center. Washington outscored the Sixers by 31-9 in the final period. The Sixers (40-40) have lost two straight, and with the defeat surrender any chance of earning the No. 4 or 5 seed in the Eastern Conference.

He doesn't always know when his number will be called, or if it will be called at all, but Willie Green has tried to stay ready during a roller-coaster second season for the 76ers. If there were any positives emanating from last night's 117-107 loss to the Washington Wizards at the MCI Center, it was the play of Green. Playing in place of injured point guard Allen Iverson, who missed his third game of the season with a strained left rotator cuff, Green scored a career-high 32 points.

Allen Iverson's trade from the 76ers to the Nuggets cost him a starting spot in the NBA All-Star Game Feb. 18 in Las Vegas and helped Gilbert Arenas get the nod. If Iverson were still in the Eastern Conference, he would have started his eighth straight game with 1,813,638 votes. Instead, he was beat out by Houston's Tracy McGrady for the second guard spot on the Western Conference squad. Washington's Arenas, who got 1,454,166 votes, surged past New Jersey's Vince Carter (1,451,156)

Arenas on guns In an op-ed piece written for the Washington Post and posted on the newspaper's Web site last night, suspended Washington Wizards guard Gilbert Arenas said he now understands that "guns and violence are serious problems, not joking matters. " Last week, Arenas was suspended without pay for the rest of the season for bringing guns into the Wizards' locker room. He pleaded guilty Jan. 15 to a felony charge of carrying a pistol without a license. He is scheduled to be sentenced March 26. In the op-ed piece, Arenas pledged to be a better role model and said a "message of nonviolence will be front and center as I try to rebuild my relationship with young people in the D.C. area.

Straight-faced and subdued, Washington Wizards star Gilbert Arenas yesterday pleaded guilty to a felony gun charge connected to a locker-room argument, leaving his All-Star career in limbo and his freedom in doubt. Arenas won't know whether he must serve jail time until his March 26 sentencing and remains free until then. 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.

Washington Wizards leading scorer Gilbert Arenas had two surgical procedures on his left knee Wednesday and will miss about 3 months. Arenas had been experiencing swelling and soreness in the knee which he had surgically repaired late last season. After sitting out the past two games, Arenas did not travel with the team to Charlotte and had an MRI exam Wednesday that revealed a cartilage tear. "I'm just going to sit in my sorrows again. I have 3 months to be back positive again, but right now, it's hard," Arenas said in a posting on his blog.

Smith remained hospitalized yesterday after being thrown from his vehicle during a crash in Newark, N.J., Saturday night, but his injuries aren't believed to be as serious as first thought.

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.

It is going to be the inevitable comparison for Evan Turner for the duration of his career, this comparison to the Washington Wizards' John Wall. And sitting in the Verizon Center watching the two share the court in the preseason opener on Friday just compounded that notion. No doubt about it, round one - their rookie seasons - went to Wall. The top pick of the 2010 draft, Wall probably would have been the league's top rookie had it not been for the freakishly electric play of the Los Angeles Clippers' Blake Griffin.

The two sides negotiating the sale of the Washington Wizards have agreed to value the franchise and the Verizon Center at slightly more than $550 million, a significant benchmark in the expected transfer of ownership to Ted Leonsis following the death of longtime owner Abe Pollin.
