  1. Wizards’ Al Harrington out a month after knee surgery

    Dec 9, 2013, 10:05 PM EDT

    Al harrington

    Al Harrington, who at 33 has been battling knee issues since last season when he has an infection in there, issues that have kept him out since Nov. 12, is now going to be out a while longer. Harrington had knee surgery again on Monday and will be out at least a month, the Wizards…

  2. Otto Porter finally joins Wizards’ practice

    Nov 25, 2013, 3:53 PM EDT

    2013 NBA Rookie Photo Shoot

    On paper Otto Porter seemed a perfect fit and a smart pick for the Washington Wizards at the small forward spot last June in the NBA Draft — however we have never really seen if that is the case. Porter struggled some at Summer League but his style of play is a poor fit for…

  3. Al Harrington latest addition to Wizards’ injury list

    Nov 15, 2013, 9:12 PM EDT

    al harrington wizards

    Over the past couple of seasons, injuries have defined the Wizards more than anything else. The talent level hasn’t exactly been amazing, but the team had enough at most positions to at least field a competitive squad if everyone was healthy. It’s shaping up to be the same story this season. Washington has already been…

  4. Wizards keep playoff goal intact by trading injured Okafor for a healthy Gortat

    Oct 26, 2013, 6:30 PM EDT

    Marcin Gortat, Patrick Patterson

    WASHINGTON – Sometimes trades instinctively bring out the head scratcher in all of us. The Wizards acquiring center Marcin Gortat isn’t one of those times. Washington hasn’t reached the playoffs since 2008. Unlike teams that bailed on the upcoming season to ensure a lottery finish, the Wizards have shaped their John Wall-led roster with the goal…

  5. After Gortat trade, Wizards will not pick up 2014-15 options for Vesely, Singleton

    Oct 26, 2013, 11:00 AM EDT

    Jan Vesely

    The Marcin Gortat trade was all about this year for the Wizards — John Wall is writing playoffs on his shoes , the owner is demanding a postseason trip, and on top of that Emeka Okafor isn’t going to be able to play for months due to a herniated disc in his neck. Gortat — the…

  6. Not exactly breaking news: Nene still battling through pain

    Oct 9, 2013, 2:36 PM EDT

    Nene

    You have to feel for the Wizards and their fans. They entered training camp flush with “we might actually make the playoffs” hopes, something fueled by players and even the owner. The one thing we knew was that they had to just stay healthy, particularly along the front line. Then Emeka Okafor goes down for…

  7. Wizards owner says he won’t allow players to use injuries as an excuse

    Oct 5, 2013, 12:30 PM EDT

    John Wall, Ted Leonsis

    The Wizards have suffered far more than their fair share of injuries recently, making it difficult to climb out of the five-year funk that has let the team out of the postseason picture. This year is no exception, with Emeka Okafor and Chris Singleton already sidelined. But they aren’s exactly John Wall and Nene, who…

  8. ProBasketballTalk 2013-14 Preview: Washington Wizards

    Oct 3, 2013, 8:45 AM EDT

    Bradley Beal, John Wall

    Last season: The Wizards were pretty good when healthy, so they were pretty terrible. John Wall, Nene and Bradley Beal all battled injuries, and Washington finished 29-53. But looking closer, the Wizards actually weren’t half bad when their good players were healthy. With Wall: 24-25 With Wall and Nene: 22-19 With Wall, Nene and Beal:…

  9. Otto Porter limited on first day of Wizards training camp due to injury

    Sep 28, 2013, 5:00 PM EDT

    Otto Porter

    Otto Porter was selected by the Wizards with the third overall pick in this summer’s draft, but injuries have kept the team from seeing what he might be able to contribute during his rookie campaign. Porter barely played in the Las Vegas Summer League, and was far from impressive in the limited time he was…

  10. Bradley Beal says he learned to be patient with injuries

    Sep 23, 2013, 3:17 PM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Washington Wizards

    Last season Bradley Beal just wanted to be on the court — so much so that when he sprained his ankles he kept playing. But if you play injured the body will compensate, and that leads to worse issues. Say, a stress reaction in your lower leg. That’s what Beal got and he spent much…

  11. Josh Childress Invited to Washington Wizards Training Camp

    Sep 21, 2013, 6:30 PM EDT

    Olympiacos' Josh Childress (C) shots bet

    Remember him? Josh Childress became a basketball pioneer of sorts when he left behind big NBA minutes with the Atlanta Hawks in favor of a bigger paycheck overseas. Childress spent the prime of his career playing for Olympiacos in Greece, where he signed an unprecedented 3-year, $20 million dollar contract back in 2008. Childress has…

  12. Wizards lose Emeka Okafor indefinitely to neck injury

    Sep 18, 2013, 3:00 PM EDT

    Emeka Okafor, Michael Kidd-Gilchrist

    Ugh. Just, ugh. The Washington Wizards will be without Emeka Okafor — who was expected to start up front with Nene — indefinitely due to a herniated cervical disc in his neck, reports J. Michael at CSNWashington.com. Okafor had been working out at the Wizards facilities, had a pain in his neck, so the doctors…

  13. Wizards’ Chris Singleton out 6-8 weeks with foot injury

    Sep 18, 2013, 1:04 PM EDT

    Chris Singleton

    The Wizards thought that the basketball gods owed them some good injury Karma after the past couple seasons. Doesn’t appear the gods feel the same way. The Wizards have lost Chris Singleton for 6-8 weeks due to a fracture in his left foot at the base of his small toe, reports J. Michael at CSNWashington.com.…

  14. Report: Al Harrington leaning toward signing with Wizards

    Aug 12, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Al Harrington

    Al Harrington could really help the team that snaps him up — two seasons ago he averaged 14.2 points a game, was a big who could stretch the floor all the way out to the three point line. That is he could help if he’s healthy. That’s the gamble. And it may be the Wizards…

  15. NBA’s Rookie Transition Program was nothing new for Glen Rice Jr.

    Aug 11, 2013, 6:30 PM EDT

    NBA: NBA Draft Combine

    The NBA’s Rookie Transition Program garnered headlines last week when Minnesota Timberwolves’ lottery pick Shabazz Muhammad was sent home and, eventually, was threatened with being sent to the NBA Development League if he didn’t start to shape up. Washington Wizards’ second-round pick had a much different experience at the RTP, however — though he’s heard most…

  16. Wizards draft Georgetown’s Porter. At least we got that right

    Jun 28, 2013, 1:51 AM EDT

    2013 NBA Draft

    WASHINGTON D.C. — In the most unpredictable of NBA Drafts, the Washington Wizards went with a player everyone assumed they were taking all along. The long-rumored marriage between the John Wall-Bradley Beal fueled Wizards and Georgetown small forward Otto Porter Jr. became official when NBA commissioner David Stern announced the third overall pick. Seemingly every…

  17. Wizards wary of becoming too young

    May 23, 2013, 11:01 AM EDT

    Bradley Beal

    The Wizards rightfully believe they would have made the playoffs if they remained healthy this season. Washington went 24-25 with John Wall – a better winning percentage than the eighth-seeded Bucks (38-44). And when Wall, Nene and Bradley Beal all played, the Wizards were 15-7. Washington should be excited to have a team on the…

  18. Ernie Grunfeld sticking with the plan for Wizards

    Apr 24, 2013, 10:55 AM EDT

    Ernie Grunfeld

    The Wizards roster that was assembled over the last year was really a multi-year plan — Emeka Okafor, Trevor Ariza and Nene each had multiple years on their contracts. The Wizards were locking themselves in. So it shouldn’t be a shock that team president Ernie Grunfeld said the goal is to stick with the plan…

  19. John Wall is knocking down jumpers. Steadily.

    Mar 26, 2013, 7:25 PM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers v Washington Wizards

    You’ve all heard the book on John Wall — go under the pick, play off him, he’s as quick as any guard in the league, amazing straight line speed, is a good playmaker… But he has no jump shot. Except, lately he has been knocking down his remade jumper. A lot of people noticed it…

  20. Wizards waive Barron, Livingston; Look for another move soon.

    Dec 23, 2012, 3:31 PM EDT

    Shaun Livingston Deron Williams

    The Wizards made a move that in and of itself would barely ripple the NBA waters — on Sunday they waived guard Shaun Livingston and center Earl Barron. Both were on non-guaranteed contracts. Yawn. Both guys saw very limited minutes and there contributions were minimal. (For the Lakers fans and others that will inevitably tweet…

  21. Wizards’ owner says finances were not a factor in turning down deal for James Harden

    Dec 15, 2012, 12:30 PM EDT

    Washington Wizards v Houston Rockets

    Earlier this week, Michael Lee of the Washington Post reported that the Wizards turned down a potential trade with the Thunder that would have landed them James Harden. The cost in terms of assets the Wizards would have to give up to Oklahoma City was relatively low — Bradley Beal and Chris Singleton were the…

  22. Lakers snap four-game losing streak with win over Wizards

    Dec 14, 2012, 10:19 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Washington Wizards

    It’s been an ugly stretch for the Lakers recently. With the team losing four straight and six of its last seven, a win by any means necessary would be welcome in Los Angeles — even against the team with the league’s worst record, the Washington Wizards. Thursday night’s destruction at the hands of the Knicks…

  23. Report: Wizards’ owner rejected trade for James Harden

    Dec 12, 2012, 8:00 AM EDT

    James Harden

    James Harden — his playmaking skills, his 24.7 points per game and his beard — could have been members of the Washington Wizards. But owner Ted Leonsis balked at the cost. That according to a Washington Post report: The Washington Wizards turned down a trade with the Oklahoma City Thunder for James Harden this summer…

  24. Wizards fall to 0-11 after heartbreaking double-OT loss to Bobcats

    Nov 24, 2012, 11:02 PM EDT

    Washington Wizards v Atlanta Hawks

    It isn’t so much that the Wizards have yet to win a game this season. It’s that the losses seem to get more and more heartbreaking each and every time. Washington fell to 0-11 on Saturday, after taking Charlotte to double-overtime before eventually losing by a final of 108-106. Even though the Wizards were typically…

  25. Adam Morrison impresses on sixth day of NBA Summer League

    Jul 19, 2012, 12:33 AM EDT

    adam morrison

    LAS VEGAS — NBA Summer League finished up with its fifth consecutive day of basketball on Wednesday evening and, as usual, there was a lot of basketball played. Not all of it was good basketball, unfortunately, but it was all basketball and there were some good things happening. The best thing that happened was the…
