    Philadelphia 76ers v Brooklyn Nets

    It’s the one day on the NBA calendar you know is going to be like a roller coaster — rumors are going to fly, deals are going to appear close then fall apart, complete fabrications will fascinate a fan base who will then blame a GM for not making them reality, and in the end…

    The Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday is one traditionally well-celebrated in the NBA. Today features a 10-game slate, and we’ll provide live updates, highlights and recaps here as the day goes on. 1:15 a.m. ET Tuesday: Pacers 102, Warriors 94 (FINAL): The second half of this game felt like a playoff game, down to the…

  6. The Extra Pass: The Raptors press pause, plus Wednesday’s recaps

    Toronto Raptors vs Indiana Pacers

    When Masai Ujiri jumped from the Denver Nuggets to the Toronto Raptors to take over as general manager, the objective was clear. Ujiri was to do what he does best: tear it down, and try to salvage as much value as possible from the mistakes made by the previous regime. Ujiri hasn’t failed to live…

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

    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…

  9. Things you don’t see every day: Jan Vesely with steal, impressive dunk (VIDEO)

    Nov 19, 2013, 10:46 PM EST

    Minnesota Timberwolves v Washington Wizards

    The Wizards’ Jan Vesely actually played well Tuesday night —4-of-4 shooting plus six boards. And he had this quality play. The steal is okay, but that’s more on J.J. Barea for a bad pass (Barea got a lot of playing time as some poor play from Rubio had him in the fourth quarter) but the…

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

    Oct 26, 2013, 6:30 PM EST

    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…

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

    Oct 26, 2013, 11:00 AM EST

    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…

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

    Oct 9, 2013, 2:36 PM EST

    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…

  13. ProBasketballTalk 2013-14 Preview: Washington Wizards

    Oct 3, 2013, 8:45 AM EST

    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:…

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

    Sep 23, 2013, 3:17 PM EST

    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…

  15. Josh Childress Invited to Washington Wizards Training Camp

    Sep 21, 2013, 6:30 PM EST

    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…

  16. Wizards lose Emeka Okafor indefinitely to neck injury

    Sep 18, 2013, 3:00 PM EST

    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…

  18. Wizards’ coach Wittman says no restrictions on Nene

    Sep 9, 2013, 2:08 PM EST

    Nene

    Nene has missed 48 games total the past two seasons, and been limited in stretches when he plays, due to plantar fasciitis and knee issues. His body has looked worn down. Him getting healthy is a big key for Washington’s playoff hopes this season. And according to everything we hear he is healthy (he took…

    Martinez of the Dominican Republic goes for a basket against Jamaica's Jordan during their FIBA Americas Championship basketball game in Caracas

    There’s quite a bit going on abroad right now as both the FIBA Americas and EuroBasket competitions are happening as teams attempt to move one step closer to qualifying for the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro. The games aren’t quite to the point of must-watch considering both tournaments are still in the pool-play rounds,…

  20. Report: Al Harrington leaning toward signing with Wizards

    Aug 12, 2013, 8:00 AM EST

    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…

  21. Report: Apparently mutual interest between DeJuan Blair, Wizards

    Jul 19, 2013, 4:29 PM EST

    DeJuan Blair

    Washington could be a playoff team in the East if they can stay healthy — John Wall started to play like everyone had hoped at the end of last season, Bradley Beal can shoot, people forget Nene is a quality big when healthy. And for a little depth up front, how about DeJuan Blair? It…
