Trevor Ariza exited Wizards OT loss to Bulls with groin strain, but not as serious as anticipated


Trevor Ariza was unable to take the court late in the Wizards' overtime loss to Chicago after leaving the game mid-way through with a groin strain.

His availability for Thursday's matchup at home against the Nuggets will be at the discretion of the team of whether that quick of a turnaround could put more pressure on the injury.

Ariza finished with six points in just 14 minutes of action. NBC Sports Insider Tom Haberstroh documented Ariza's health as the season winds down prior to Wednesday's injury. The veteran swingman is on a one-year, $15 million deal.

Ariza said he couldn't pinpoint which play caused the discomfort. His status for the bout with Denver will surely be a topic of interest.
