WASHINGTON (AP) -All-Star guard Gilbert Arenas has made a surprise return to the Washington Wizards, playing his first game since having knee surgery in November.
Showing a flare for the dramatic, Arenas waited until the 5:30 mark of the first quarter of the Wizards' game against Milwaukee on Wednesday night to emerge from the locker room in uniform.
He entered the game 9 seconds later to a big ovation and scored on a reverse layup with 4:49 left in the first. It was his first points since Nov. 16 against Minnesota.
