WASHINGTON -- Washington Wizards forward Antawn Jamison expects to play Wednesday night against Boston after missing two games with a sprained right shoulder.

The All-Star returned to practice Monday. He was hurt while diving into the front rows of seats to save a ball last week against Milwaukee. He sat out Friday's win over Miami and Saturday's victory at Chicago, the first games he has missed this season.

"Antawn looked great today," coach Eddie Jordan said. "He did a lot of good things on the floor. He got hit a few times and came out of there pretty clean."

Jamison is averaging 21.5 points and 10.2 rebounds.

Gilbert Arenas also practiced after sitting out Saturday's game for precautionary reasons. Arenas returned last week after missing 66 games with a knee injury, and the team was wary of having him play on back-to-back nights.

"Everybody is pretty much in sync," Jordan said. "Gilbert is the only one who has to gel in and that shouldn't be a problem. He has a great feel for the game and he's been in our system. He's a terrific player. It won't take long for him to gel. He just needs to get his conditioning."
