When the Washington Wizards set a franchise record for futility in Charlotte on Friday night, coach Flip Saunders explained his team's recent struggles by stating succinctly, "We just don't have enough." But as they prepared to host the Utah Jazz at Verizon Center on Saturday, the undermanned and overmatched Wizards realized that they were going to have a little less. Randy Foye was forced to finally rest his sore left wrist, which had been bothering him for nearly a month and contributed to his losing his starting point guard job to Shaun Livingston.

Flip Saunders made his first trip back to the Palace of Auburn Hills since the Detroit Pistons dismissed him in June 2008. Saunders, who lost in the Eastern Conference finals in each of his three seasons with the Pistons, said he didn't expect to hear raucous cheers when he was announced Sunday night. But what he heard might have been more surprising: apathy. A small crowd at the arena greeted Saunders mostly with silence. But one Pistons fan behind the Washington Wizards' bench started heckling him. "Hey, Flip, you grooming Sam Cassell?"

LOS ANGELES - Yesterday was just another day at the Southern California beach for Sam Cassell, with the usual drill, including hosting the family and playing point guard in the NBA All-Star Game. Cassell (Dunbar), selected as a reserve to the Western Conference squad from the Minnesota Timberwolves, said he spent the morning and afternoon relaxing with his family before coming to Staples Center for last night's game. And the game itself went down smoothly, too, as Cassell had four points and a team-high seven assists.
