Gilbert Arenas Makes Surprise Return

Showing his flare for the dramatic, Arenas waited until the 5:30 mark of the first quarter of the Wizards’ game against the Milwaukee Bucks to emerge from the locker room wearing his No. 0 jersey.

He entered the game 9 seconds later to a large ovation and scored on a reverse layup with 4:49 left in the first, his first points since Nov. 16 against Minnesota. He made his first four shots before missing a fadeaway 3-pointer at the buzzer, giving him 10 points in the quarter.

At halftime, Arenas was the Wizards’ leading scorer. He had 12 points on 5-for-6 shooting despite playing only 8 minutes.
