Arenas returns

For the first time in almost a year, Gilbert Arenas suited up for the Wizards last night and took the court.

The Wizards lost by two to the Pistons, 98-96, but Arenas finished with 15 points and 10 assists in 29 minutes. I'm kind of surprised he played that many minutes, and he looked a bit rusty -- he shot three of 12 from the field -- but that's to be expected after such a long layoff. It was great to see him back on the court, and it's not surprising that there seemed to be more of a buzz at the Verizon Center during the game last night.

The Wizards travel to Indiana to play the Pacers tonight, and since it's a back-to-back Arenas probably won't play. But you never know; I wouldn't be shocked if Agent Zero found a way to get some playing time.
