So far for the Wizards, it's no John Wall, no problem.
Gilbert Arenas has taken full advantage of his first start since January, scoring five points and adding two rebounds and two assists to help give the Wizards a 27-23 lead over the Toronto Raptors at the end of the first quarter.
Andray Blatche leads Wizards scorers with eight points, but also has two rebounds, two assists and three steals. JaVale McGee had seven rebounds in the first quarter, playing proverbial volleyball on the backboard and getting his hands on every miss that he could.
John Wall is sitting out tonight for the first time in his NBA career with a sprained left foot. Forward Yi Jianlian is also in street clothes on the Washington bench with a bruised knee.
Sonny Weems leads all scorers after the first quarter with 11 points on five-of-six shooting.
