Not again. Gilbert Arenas underwent a surgical procedure on his left knee this morning to “clean out some debris.” While Agent 0 is, as always, spinning this into a positive as it will allow him to recover quicker, it’s still a devastating blow to the Wizards’, who expected Gil to be ready at 100% on day one.

“I just had some floating debris in there that was slowing me down,” said Arenas, who seemed to be in good spirits. “It was irritating the knee so we decided to go in there and clean it out. This should actually allow me to come back faster.”

Yesterday the biggest news in DC was that Caron Butler had just come off of a summer of doing good in the Bahamas, Jamaica, South Africa and Mexico, and was encouraging his teammates to follow suit. But now the Wiz’s $111 million man will have all eyes focused on him and his timetable to return to the floor.

He’ll definitely be out for the entirety of camp, and for that first month of the season. Given that he, Caron and Antawn Jamison have been together for a minute now, can the Wiz get away without having their offensive centerpiece together during the early stages of the season?
