WASHINGTON (AP) -Caron Butler and Antonio Daniels were back on the court Wednesday for the Washington Wizards after missing the final game of the West Coast road trip, while Gilbert Arenas sat out despite being cleared to play.
Butler (strained left hamstring) and Daniels (sprained left wrist) took part in the team's morning shootaround ahead of Wednesday night's game against Milwaukee. Both expected to play against the Bucks.
``I ran pretty hard for the course of the shootaround and I felt pretty good,'' Butler said.
Arenas hasn't played since November because of a knee injury, and his status remains unpredictable. He wanted to play against Detroit on March 23 and stormed out of the locker room when the doctor wouldn't give the go-ahead. Now, the doctor says yes - having cleared Arenas during the road trip - but the three-time All-Star guard didn't take part in the shootaround.
Asked when he expects to have Arenas back, Coach Eddie Jordan said: ``When he's ready to play.''
The Wizards entered Wednesday's game tied for fifth in the Eastern Conference. They would clinch their fourth straight playoff berth Wednesday with a win over the Bucks and an Indiana loss to Boston.
