Our condolences go out to Wizards coach Flip Saunders, whose mother passed away Friday morning. Our thoughts are with you and your family.

Saunders will still coach the team Friday night when it takes on the Minnesota Timberwolves, according to a tweet from Michael Lee of the Washington Post.

Saunders will miss Sunday’s game against Detroit to attend the funeral.

    I don’t like Saunders as a coach, but I wish him the best in this coming week.
