The Washington Wizards John Wall is said to still be weeks away from practicing.
Wizards coach Randy Whitman said “We’re going to look at a lot of different things. John’s bearing doesn’t play with that because he is still some weeks away from getting on the floor and practicing.”
With point guard A.J. Price also hitting the shelf with a broken hand, the Wizards find themselves desperate.
Whitman added “if we were really strapped we’d bring someone in.”
It seems the Wizards are indeed “strapped.” They’ve been strapped, even with a mostly healthy roster. Or at least seemingly healthy roster.
Nene Hilario is still ailing and playing at less than 100 percent after dealing with plantar facitis.
And then, there is Wall. With Wall not on the court, the Wizards don’t really stand a chance at much more than fluke victories (like their unpredictable win over the Heat). It’s hard to hang a season on a few random victories, and at this point Wizards fans are so sick of the team they are paying people to take their tickets.
What is the excitement of watching a team without A.J. Price, after all?
