WASHINGTON (AP) -Gilbert Arenas has ducked out of the Washington Wizards' annual preseason media day and avoided what was supposed to be his first public discussion of last week's knee surgery.
The All-Star point guard was the only Wizards player not made available to reporters at the team's arena on Friday.
A Wizards spokesman said Arenas will address the media Saturday, when the team opens training camp in Richmond, Va.
Arenas and the team have offered varying timetables for when he might be able to play this season. He appeared in only 13 regular-season games last season because of problems with his left knee. Arenas has had three operations on the knee in the past 1 1/2 years.
