Wizards activate Arenas

Washington, DC (Sports Network) – Washington Wizards guard Gilbert Arenas had
nine points and four assists while playing 24 minutes in Friday’s 110-91 loss
to Minnesota to mark his return from the injured list.

Arenas, who had been sidelined since late November with a severe abdominal
strain, was activated prior to the home contest.

The Wizards will now go on the road to face the Knicks on Sunday before
hosting Utah on Tuesday.

The 21-year-old Arenas, who was signed to a six-year, $64 million free-agent
contract last summer, is averaging 20.8 points, 5.1 rebounds and 5.5 assists
in 13 games this season for the Wizards.
