Gilbert Arenas Misses Heat Game With Strained Calf

Gilbert Arenas's triumphant return to healthy, productive NBA basketball has already been derailed. Arenas will miss tonight's game with the Miami Heat to rest a strained calf. Arenas, who spent almost all of the 2008-09 season on the sideline thanks to a knee injury, worked out before the game, but reported tightness in his calf to head coach Flip Saunders.

In the meantime, the Wizards will juggle their lineup -- Saunders said it would "test my creativity" -- and hope that Arenas' calf setback is temporary.
