WASHINGTON -- The Washington Wizards expect Gilbert Arenas to return to practice Wednesday after missing the first three games of the season with a strained tendon in his right ankle.
Arenas sat out Tuesday night's home opener against the Philadelphia 76ers but looked in good form as he took shots on the court before tipoff.
Coach Flip Saunders said he thinks Arenas will practice Wednesday ahead of the team's next game on Friday against the New York Knicks.
No. 1 overall pick John Wall was in the starting lineup for the Wizards despite spraining his right ankle in Saturday's loss to the Atlanta Hawks.
