    Washington Wizards fans had to be worried when one of its offseason upgrades and only representative at the world championships, China's Yi Jianlian(notes), went down with an inflamed Achilles tendon that kept him out of the game against the host country.

    The Washington Post is reporting that Jianlian's tendon is feeling better and he'll be a game-time decision when his team faces Lithuania today in the knockout round.

    A source to the Post said that the injury isn't serious and that "it would heal with rest following the conclusion of this tournament."

    The seven-foot forward averaged12 points and 7.2 rebounds per game for the dismal New Jersey Nets last year.
