CHICAGO (AP) -Washington Wizards forward Antawn Jamison missed his second straight game because of a sprained right shoulder, while Gilbert Arenas sat for precautionary reasons against the Chicago Bulls on Saturday night.
Jamison, averaging a team-leading 21.5 points and 10.2 rebounds, was injured late in Wednesday's loss to Milwaukee. He missed his first game of the season on Friday when the Wizards beat Miami to clinch their fourth consecutive playoff berth.
Arenas, who had surgery on his left knee, caused a stir when he returned on Wednesday after missing 66 games. He scored 17 points in just under 20 minutes against the Bucks and came off the bench to score 13 in 20 minutes against Miami on Friday. But the Wizards opted not to use him on consecutive nights.
ut that long. It's precautionary.''
The Wizards' next game is Wednesday against Boston, and O'Koren said Arenas will practice Monday and Tuesday.
Chicago was without forward Drew Gooden, who missed his fourth game with a lower abdominal strain.
