What a team player..
Arenas Sits With 'Sore' Knee, Later Claims Injury Was Fake
Wizards guard Gilbert Arenas sat out the team's preseason game against the Hawks on Tuesday night with a knee injury.
"His knee is acting up and is a little sore, and it looks like he's going to sit this one out," coach Flip Saunders said before the game.
However, after the game Arenas claimed that he wasn't as injured as it seemed.
"I told [Nick Young] I'd sacrifice playing tonight so he can get some time in because I know he's kind of frustrated he's not getting a chance to crack the [small forward] position, especially since we're going three guards," Arenas said with a smile.
"So I told him I'll go and fake an injury or say something's wrong with me so you can start."
