106.7 The Fan’s Frank Hanrahan reported this morning that Washington Wizards’ forward Rashard Lewis got into an argument with assistant coach Sam Cassell before the Minnesota Timberwolves game on Sunday, and then refused to play in the game.
Lewis, the team’s highest paid player, was listed out with a sore right knee in the Wizards blowout 92-73 loss, keeping thm winless on the season.
After the game, Andray Blatche did his best to stand up for head coach Flip Saunders. “Flip is definitely doing his job, I just don’t feel like guys are listening and following behind what he says and what he wants us to do.”
“Guys want to try to do it their own way, and it’s not working,” Blatche said. “The record shows that. I feel like everybody should go home and focus and think and take consideration for what Flip is saying, because it can’t hurt. It damn sure ain’t helping us our way.”
