Toronto Raptors: Veteran guard Robert Pack was among three players released by the Raptors on Saturday.

Pack was trying to earn a spot on his ninth NBA team. He last played with the New Jersey Nets -- his second stint with the club -- in 2003-04 when he averaged 1.9 points and one assist in 26 games.

Pack totaled four points and four assists in three preseason games with the Raptors.

Toronto also released guard Tierre Brown and forward Bryant Matthews.

Brown averaged 9.8 points and 2.5 assists in four preseason games.

After being named NBDL Most Valuable Player in 2003-04, Brown appeared in 76 games with the Los Angeles Lakers last season, averaging four points and two assists.

Matthews averaged 4.3 points and 2.3 rebounds in three preseason games.

Washington Wizards: Antawn Jamison and Gilbert Arenas were both nursing injuries Saturday after early exits from Friday night's game against Denver.

Jamison bruised his right shoulder in the third quarter of the 97-91 loss to the Rockets in the first game of a doubleheader at Los Angeles. Arenas got poked in the right eye, also in the third quarter.

Jamison was able to practice Saturday, while Arenas sat out. Both will be game-time decisions for Sunday's preseason game at Houston.
