Washington Wizards Get Antawn Jamison Back; Winning To Follow?

In the long list of things missing from the Washington Wizards this season, Antawn Jamison is at the top. Come Wednesday, he will be scratched off that list.

Coach Flip Saunders said Jamison will make his season debut against the Cleveland Cavaliers in a must-win situation for the Wizards. It isn't a must-win because time is short on the season, but because the Wizards need something to end the six game skid they're on.

With his return imminent, it is impossible to overlook what the Wizards are getting with Jamison.

His career averages of 19.9 points and eight rebounds per game don't do justice to his tenure with the Wizards. Beyond his statistics, Jamison has been a leader for the Wizards through tough stretches. In the absence of Gilbert Arenas and Brendan Haywood, Jamison maintained his level of play and played a big part in what few wins the Wizards could manage.

There is some skepticism that comes with Jamison's return.

It isn't a foregone conclusion that he will see a heavy load of minutes, or that he will be in top shape. It is also impossible to predict the impact he will have on the Wizards as a whole.
