CHICAGO - Washington Wizards leading scorer Jordan Crawford is sitting out against the Chicago Bulls because of a left ankle injury.
Crawford is averaging 16 points per game this season, and 21.8 in his last six games. He scored a season-high 27 on Friday night in a win over Orlando.
Richard Hamilton returned to the Bulls' lineup Saturday night after missing 12 games with a torn plantar fascia in his left foot. Luol Deng also was in the lineup after he sprained his right ankle in Tuesday's loss to Houston.
