Guard Boykins added

November 12, 2009|By From Sun news services

WASHINGTON — — The Washington Wizards agreed to contract terms with free-agent guard Earl Boykins after a series of injuries at that position and waived forward Paul Davis.

Boykins, 5 feet 5, who signed a non-guaranteed contract, has averaged 9.4 points and 3.4 assists in 10 NBA seasons with eight teams. He played for Vitrus Bologna in Italy last season.

Davis averaged 2.5 points and 1.5 assists in two appearances for the Wizards (2-6) this season.

Wizards guard Randy Foye sprained his right ankle during Tuesday's loss to the Miami Heat. The team's other injured guards are Mike Miller (left shoulder), Mike James (left hand) and Javaris Crittenton (left ankle). Also, forward Antawn Jamison (shoulder) has been out all season. Jamison is expected to practice today and make his season debut Saturday against the Detroit Pistons.

Miller could return for that game, too, but Crittenton is expected to be out at least another month and James likely will miss four to five weeks. Foye is listed as day-to-day after X-rays were negative.
