Veteran guard Juan Dixon will declare himself eligible for the D-League this year, and he's expected to be a top pick.

Playing in the D-League will keep Dixon in shape and in the minds of NBA decision-makers. It also seems like another baby-step toward coaching, should he move in that direction.

Veteran guard Juan Dixon has contacted multiple teams this summer as he attempts to return to the NBA.

Dixon was playing for the Spanish team Unicaja until the International Basketball Federation suspended him for testing positive for steroids. He could find a franchise willing to sign him for the veteran's minimum, but it's just as likely that his NBA career is over.

Former NBA player Juan Dixon has tested positive for the steroid nandrolone, his Spanish team Unicaja announced.

The International Basketball Federation decided to suspend him indefinitely, and it's safe to say we won't see him in the NBA again. Dixon, who won an NCAA championship with Maryland in 2002, played for Washington, Portland, Toronto and Detroit in the NBA.

Juan Dixon practiced despite a sore Achilles' tendon on Monday and it now looks like his season may not be over.

Coach Ed Tapscott suggested earlier that Dixon probably wouldn't return this season, but he didn't even appear to be favoring the leg today. But even if he plays again, he still doesn't have fantasy value

Wizards guard Juan Dixon aggravated his Achilles injury on Saturday and his season might be over.

"I really appreciated his effort," coach Ed Tapscott said. "He probably shouldn't have played. I don't think I'm think I'm going to be able to use him for the rest of the year."

Juan Dixon played on Saturday for the first time in six games, chipping in five points, three assists and one steal in 20 minutes off the bench.

Dixon and Andray Blatche (two points, three rebounds) each shot 1-of-5 from the field. The only way Dixon might help owners is if Nick Young misses games with his knee injury.

Juan Dixon (Achilles) did not play due to coach's decision on Thursday against the Cavaliers.

The Wizards could have certainly used another ball handler with Javaris Crittenton out, so it is safe to assume that the Wizards are in no hurry to bring Dixon back. Consider him out indefinitely until a report emerges.

Juan Dixon (Achilles) did not play due to coach's decision on Sunday against the Pacers.

Juan Dixon returned from a strained Achilles against the Bulls on Monday, posting three points and two assists in nine minutes.

Dixon has been an afterthought in fantasy leagues all season long, and this performance won't win him any admirers.

Juan Dixon, who left Wednesday's game with a strained right Achilles' tendon, will be evaluated at shootaround on Monday to see if he can play against the Bulls.

Dixon does not have any real value in fantasy leagues at this time, but his absence could mean more minutes for Nick Young, who has looked good recently.

Juan Dixon left Wednesday's game with a strained right Achilles' tendon and will not return.

That should mean more minutes for Nick Young going forward, and Young has looked good tonight against the Clippers.
