Gilbert Arenas Cleared but Won’t Return Yet


Washington Wizards guard Gilbert Arenas has been medically cleared to return to game action as soon as he feels ready, according to a team source, but won’t play tonight against the Milwaukee Bucks and remains unsure of when he will return this season.

Arenas was told that he was cleared during a phone conversation with team doctor Marc Connell on Saturday, one day before the Wizards lost to the Lakers in Los Angeles in the fourth game of five-game trip that concluded with a loss at Utah on Monday night.

Connell performed surgery on Arenas’s left knee on Nov. 21. [Washington Post]
