RICHMOND, Va. (AP) -Gilbert Arenas says he declined to talk Friday at the Wizards' media day because he didn't want to take attention from Washington's healthy players.
On Saturday he tried to mask his frustration at being back on the shelf after a third left knee operation in 1 1/2 years by working with the team's young players as they opened their training camp at Virginia Commonwealth University.
Arenas was fined $15,000 by the NBA for declining to make himself available on Friday. The All-Star point guard signed a six-year, $111 million contract in the offseason.
Coach Eddie Jordan said it was good to have Arenas around.
