Wizards' Arenas sits vs. Blazers with sore left knee
Wizards coach Eddie Jordan said the entire team participated in a shootaround before the game. But Arenas' injury was disclosed when the lineups were announced.
"We have just-in-case plans in place," Jordan said when asked before the game about Arenas. "We know it's a tough deal for him."
Antonio Daniels started in place of Arenas, scoring 10 points while grabbing 10 boards.
Arenas played 38 minutes and had 27 points in Washington's 105-89 win over Minnesota on Friday.
Arenas, who had left knee surgery in April, has not missed a game this season.
