The Washington Wizards are off to a 0-5 record to start the season. Superstar point guard Gilbert Arenas has been out since September after his third knee surgery procedure. Arenas will not return until mid-January at the earliest, and the future of the Wizards team without him is uncertain. Even Antawn Jamison, who played with a passion during Arenas’ absence least year, seems uninterested. The Wizards hope that a big pep talk will help them score a big win against the 5-1 Utah Jazz on Wednesday night.
