Gooden (calf) has been cleared to play in Monday's game against the Celtics, J. Michael of CSN Mid-Atlantic reports. Gooden resumed practicing prior to the postponement of Saturday's game with the Jazz and fully participated in the team's morning shootaround Monday, so he'll receive clearance to play after missing the team's previous three games. The calf has been a recurring problem all season for Gooden, but after taking some more time off to recover, it looks like he's now back to full health. Gooden is averaging 14.8 minutes over his 12 appearances on the campaign and is unlikely to become a major cog in coach Randy Wittman's rotation.
Gooden (calf) has been ruled out for Wednesday's game against the Heat, J. Michael of CSN Mid-Atlantic reports. It's an unsurprising development, given that Gooden was unable to practice Tuesday. He'll be joined on the inactive list by Kris Humphries (knee) and Otto Porter (hip), which will enable Nene Hilario and DeJuan Blair to see more court time as the lone available big men off the bench.
Gooden (calf) did not practice Tuesday and will likely be considered questionable at best for Wednesday's game against the Heat, J. Michael of CSN Mid-Atlantic reports. Gooden continues to be bothered by a lingering calf issue, which also kept him out of the Wizards' past two games. The team's frontcourt is thin at the moment, with Nene Hilario and DeJuan Blair providing depth while Otto Porter (hip) and Kris Humphries (knee) are injured alongside Gooden.
Golden (calf) has been ruled out of Monday's game against the Trail Blazers. Gooden continues to spend the majority of his season on the Wizards' bench, only taking the court 12 times this season, with six of those opportunities coming in January. He joins Otto Porter (hip) and Kris Humphries (knee) on the bench, leaving only Nene Hilario and DeJuan Blair as available front court reserves. He'll continue to nurse his sore right calf, with his next chance to return to the court coming on Wednesday.
Gooden (calf) won't play Saturday versus the Celtics, J. Michael of CSN Mid-Atlantic reports. Gooden is dealing with a calf injury of unknown severity, joining Kris Humphries (knee) on the pine. Thus, only two frontcourt reserves (Nene and DeJuan Blair) are available off the Wizards' bench.
