It's been 10 weeks since Jared Dudley underwent back surgery just 19 days after the Milwaukee Bucks agreed to trade him to the Washington Wizards. The veteran forward believes he could be ready for the start of the regular season. "I basically can do everything I want to on the court, and then now, it's basically just listening to the doctors at that 12-week mark," Dudley, who averaged 7.2 points and 3.2 rebounds per game last season, said at the Wizards' media day. "I'll probably do 70-80 percent. The only thing I won't do is full contact, full court. And then once that 12-week mark goes, I'll let go and do full speed. And once the coaches see how I am at 12 weeks, hopefully I can play a preseason game." The prognosis falls in line with the three- to four-month recovery timetable Dudley received after the surgery. He said he underwent the surgery in July instead of immediately after the season because he tried to rehabilitate the injury first.
