http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/articles/A38416-2005Mar15.htmlWashington Wizards Coach Eddie Jordan knew that the challenge of leading his team would get more difficult when he was forced to remove Antawn Jamison, who winced and wobbled through just eight minutes Monday against the Los Angeles Lakers. Jamison will miss tonight's game against the Atlanta Hawks because of right knee tendinitis, and Jordan plans to rest his all-star forward against the Milwaukee Bucks on Friday and, possibly, the Utah Jazz on Saturday.
"They got to sit me," Jamison said yesterday. "If it was up to me, I'd be out there on one leg. [But] the smartest thing is for me to sit down a couple of games and just listen to my body and make sure I look at the overall picture instead of going out there and making it worse."
Kwame Brown will get his sixth start of the season, giving Jordan his 11th different starting lineup in forwards Brown and Jared Jeffries, guards Gilbert Arenas and Larry Hughes and center Brendan Haywood.
