Be careful what you wish for, Gilbert Arenas.
Yesterday, Washington Wizards guard Gilbert Arenas set the internet ablaze when he was fined for admitting that he faked an injury so that teammate Nick Young could get some more burn during Tuesday's win over the Atlanta Hawks. Shortly after checking into tonight's game against the Milwaukee Bucks, Arenas suffered what the NBA TV announcing crew called a "mild right groin strain." Arenas could be seen holding his right leg on the sideline and receiving medical attention from the Wizards staff. According to the NBA TV crew, Arenas is not expected to return to game action tonight. Arenas did not start for the Wizards, and first checked into the game at the 7:06 mark of the first quarter, replacing Young. On the bright side, no one really cares because Wizards rookie John Wall is quite good at basketball.
