The Washington Wizards fined guard Gilbert Arenas $50,000 for faking a knee injury on Tuesday, several media outlets reported.


Arenas said his knee was sore Tuesday morning and did not play in that night's game against Atlanta.

After the game Arenas told reporters he had faked the injury so guard Nick Young could get more playing time. Young scored 24 points against the Hawks. The team fined Arenas on Wednesday.

After Wednesday's practice, Arenas first said he wasn't talking, then appeared before reporters offering a halfhearted apology for his actions.

"I screwed up again, so I just want to say sorry," he said. "I wasn't really thinking that this was going to be another media outburst. It's like everything I do now, someone, tit for tat, tries to blow it out of proportion."

Arenas didn't start Thursday against Milwaukee, but suffered a groin injury just three minutes after coming into the game in the first quarter.

This is adding salt onto the wounds. He actually did get injured playing the Bucks. Bad Karma strikes instantly.

So for faking an injury he gets fined 50 big ones and the media thinks even less of him than they did before. Genius move Gil, genius move.

What the heck is wrong with this guy? All the talent he has and he acts like a child in grade school. It looks like he signed that one big contract and doesn't even care anymore. That's what I can't stand about athletes these days. They're in it for one thing. The cash. Back in the day those guys like Bill Russell and Wilt Chamberlain would have played just for the love of the game. Arenas is an embarrassment to the league.
