WASHINGTON (AP) — Gilbert Arenas has been fined for faking an injury to keep from playing in the Washington Wizards home preseason opener.

Gun Charges Cost Troubled Guard 50 Games In ’09-’10: KNX 1070’s Steve Grad Reports

Coach Flip Saunders said Wednesday that Arenas was fined an undisclosed amount by the team for claiming to have a sore knee before the Wizards’ game against Atlanta on Tuesday night.


Arenas said after the game that he pretended to have a bum knee to give teammate Nick Young a chance to start.


It would have been Arenas’ first game at home since his 50-game suspension and felony conviction for bringing guns into the locker room last season.
