BOWIE -- The news came as a shattering blow to Washington Bullets point guard Brent Price, who basically was told in December that his performance wasn't up to standards. Coach Jim Lynam yanked Price out of the rotation, a move that left the fourth-year player pained yet settled."I remember calling my wife and my dad and telling them," Price said. "It was a frustrating time, but I also felt that that was the turning point. Everything was taken out of my hands. I said, 'I'll just wait, relax and wait for the opportunity to come.

BOWIE -- Washington Bullets reserve guard Tim Legler will have surgery today to repair torn ligaments in his right knee, including the anterior cruciate ligament, and torn cartilage.Legler, who was averaging 9.4 points and is the NBA's leader in three-point shooting accuracy (.522), was injured after planting his foot during the first quarter of Wednesday night's loss to the Boston Celtics and the injury was discovered yesterday after a magnetic resonance imaging test.There is no set timetable for recovering from ACL injuries, but many players -- such as Bullets guard Brent Price -- miss a year.

In a game marking yet another return by Chris Webber, the Washington Bullets forward showed he wasn't far from getting back to top form.But it was also a big late shot by Gheorghe Muresan that was needed as the Bullets, without the suspended Juwan Howard, held off a late rally by the New Jersey Nets in a 93-87 win last night before 12,523 at the Baltimore Arena.In addition to Webber's stellar return, Mark Price showed signs of regaining his shooting touch, and younger brother Brent Price found himself a spot in the NBA record books.

BOWIE -- While his Washington Bullets teammates were walking through an offensive play during practice Saturday, Mark Price stood on the sideline with his hands tucked into his jeans pockets. His job these days is not to play, but to observe -- something he'll be doing a lot in the next two weeks."It's going to be hard to learn as you play," Price said. "It sets me back and possibly the team back as far as cohesiveness, because I haven't played with these guys at all."The team is attempting to put a positive spin on Price's sore left heel, hopeful that rest and treatment will have him ready for the Nov. 3 opener against the Philadelphia 76ers.

LANDOVER -- An already bad injury situation got worse for the Washington Bullets yesterday when they announced that Don MacLean may not be available for an additional two months after breaking his right thumb during an altercation at a Baltimore restaurant Saturday night.MacLean has been on the injured list since Dec. 12 and had missed 12 straight games going into last night with tendinitis in both knees."We were expecting him for practice on Monday, now they tell me he'll be six to eight Mondays from now," said a disappointed Bullets coach Jim Lynam.

A year ago, the biggest concern for the Washington Bullets going into the off-season was re-signing a young star forward (Chris Webber) and solidifying the point guard position. This year, little has changed.Signing Juwan Howard, who becomes an unrestricted free agent July 1, is the top priority. And although it will be costly, Bullets general manager John Nash said yesterday, "I think we'll sign Juwan as soon as possible."If that happens, the most trying time for Nash this summer will be the decision on who will be the team's point guard next season.

LANDOVER -- Brent Price delivered the pass on a dime. And when the cutting Jim McIlvaine drove to the basket and threw down a thunderous, one-handed dunk, even his Washington Bullets teammates were left shaking their heads.If there was some concern that the Bullets' offense would stall with the season-ending knee injury to Gheorghe Muresan, well, at least it didn't for one night. With McIlvaine making the first start of his career, Washington continued its impressive run with last night's 116-106 win over the Minnesota Timberwolves.

LANDOVER -- When the Washington Bullets walked into their locker room last night, there was a little less room to maneuver with all the minicams around. There was such a buzz before the game against the Miami Heat that coach Jim Lynam didn't deem it necessary to deliver a pep talk."At this stage of the season, a team like us can ill afford any losses," said Lynam, well aware of the playoff implications involved. "[The team] doesn't need me to tell them that it's important. Our survival is what we're talking about here."

LANDOVER - When you're the 11th team in a playoff race in which eight teams make it, moral victories at this time of year are meaningless.So, the Washington Bullets weren't happy just to be in overtime against the Utah Jazz last night. They wanted to capitalize on a big opportunity.The Bullets did just that, getting a key shot by Juwan Howard and a huge defensive play by Gheorghe Muresan in the closing seconds of overtime on the way to a 120-115 win before a sellout crowd of 18,756 at USAir Arena.

The Washington Bullets are down to their last week of practice and a final roster cut before their season opener in Charlotte on Friday night after completing their seven-game preseason schedule with a 104-98 victory over the Milwaukee Bucks.After Friday's game in Knoxville, Tenn., Wes Unseld cut free-agent guard Tom Garrick, who had played previously for four other NBA teams. That left the Bullets with 13 players, one over the 12-man roster limit.With 12 guaranteed contracts, the man squarely on the spot is free-agent guard Doug Overton, of La Salle, whose outstanding play since joining the team two weeks ago has made it difficult for the Bullets to release him.Overton, who failed in his bid to make the Detroit Pistons as a second-round draft pick in 1991, has averaged in double figures and scored a team-high 16 points against Milwaukee as the Bullets finished their preseason with a 4-3 record.

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- Don MacLean showed he can hit his shot, and the Bullets showed that their offense can get the ball to him."It's never been a problem for me," MacLean said about hishooting. "It's funny. Any level I move up to, people wonder if I can make the shot.MacLean, acquired from the Los Angeles Clippers this week, was one of the many new faces for the Bullets, who lost their 1992 preseason opener, a 118-108 decision to the Chicago Bulls before 18,794 in the Florida Suncoast Dome last night.

Faced with the possibility that Mark Price's foot injury is more serious than initially thought, the Washington Bullets again went shopping for a point guard and acquired Robert Pack from the Denver Nuggets yesterday.The deal did not come without a price, as Washington gave up forward Don MacLean and backup point guard Doug Overton for Pack and future considerations."I think that given Pack was available, and because of our situation, you had to do it," Bullets coach Jim Lynam said of the trade.
