Coach Randy Wittman told forward Trevor Ariza to take Monday morning off as the Wizards had a light practice before playing the Memphis Grizzlies.

The Wizards missed Ariza’s offensive spark in Saturday’s 101-92 loss at the Golden State Warriors, but are still hopeful he can be there at tipoff.

Ariza made a career-high seven three-pointers in the upset of Los Angeles on Friday, when the Wizards didn't have center Emeka Okafor because of the flu. Then Ariza contracted it, too.

“It’s been going around. There’s been some teams that’s been short-handed with that,” Wittman said before practice as snow and ice fell outside Verizon Center. “It’s kind of like the weather. It usually doesn't snow in March but here we are.”
