WASHINGTON -- Gilbert Arenas is showing "signs of progress" as he works to return from knee surgery, Wizards interim coach Ed Tapscott said.
Arenas has started playing 2-on-2 with teammates, although the three-time All-Star point guard has not been cleared to participate in practices. He has not played in a game this season after having his third surgery in 1½ years on his left knee in September.
Wizards president Ernie Grunfeld confirmed in an e-mail to The Associated Press on Monday that he expects Arenas to play for the team this season, although no timetable has been set.
"He can shoot and cut, so that obviously shows signs of progress, but the medical staff will determine when he'll be able to step that up," Tapscott told the AP.
