Happy Birthday Gilbert Arenas! On his 28th birthday, the Wizards point guard was suspended indefinitely without pay by NBA commissioner David Stern. Arenas is under investigation for bringing guns to the locker room. Stern said Arenas will get a substancial suspension and perhaps even worse. Stern said Arenas is not currently fit to take the court in a NBA game because of his ongoing actions, including some of his tweets and him pointing his index finger at teammates like they were a gun last night. He also said Stern is mean after the game.
Fantasy owners knew this was coming. Areans could be suspended for the season. Expect Earl Boykins or Randy Foye to start for the Wizards. I prefer Foye over Boykins, but both see an increase in value. Foye has been a solid fantasy player in the past. He is averaging just 17:18 minutes per game, but when he played more than 35 minutes per game last season with the Timberwolves, he averaged 16.3 points and 4.3 assists, but shot 40.7 percent from the field.
