Wizards forward Rashard Lewis decided not to play in his team’s game Sunday after getting into an argument before the game, CSN Washington reports.
Frank Hanrahan had very few details other than Lewis getting into an argument with assistant coach Sam Cassell and not playing, but he notes that Lewis was not on the team’s bench for the game. The boxscore says Lewis missed the game with a sore knee.
The Wizards have started out the season 0-8 and Lewis is their highest-paid player. He’s had a poor season like most of his teammates, and he’s off to his worst start since his rookie season.
Shockingly, nothing has improved with the Wizards since Andray Blatche demanded the ball more after the team’s first game.
