    Washington could have saved some money by waiving Miller, but would rather build on last season’s success.

  2. The Al Jefferson Effect: Now that the Bobcats are playoff-bound, how they want their big man to help next

    Apr 17, 2014, 4:53 PM EDT

    Steve Clifford, Cody Zeller, Al Jefferson

    What affect will Jefferson have on the development of Kemba Walker, Bismack Biyombo, Michael Kidd-Gilchrist and Cody Zeller?

  3. Report: Washington Wizards want Greg Monroe

    Jan 20, 2014, 7:34 PM EDT

    Greg Monroe, Marcin Gortat, Bradley Beal, Trevor Ariza, Josh Smith

    The Detroit Pistons have one month to determine whether they’re willing to give Greg Monroe a max contract. There’s no guarantee Monroe will get that large of an offer as a restricted free agent this summer, but the possibility is high enough that if the Pistons aren’t willing to pay him max money, they nearly…

  4. Wizards challenge limits of sustained offensive ineptitude in single possession

    Dec 10, 2013, 2:32 PM EDT

    Randy Wittman

    Randy Wittman, coaching a Wizards team that has a singular focus of reaching the 2014 playoffs, watched his squad start 2-7 – placing him firmly on the hot seat. Washington then won seven of its next nine, and even with losses in its last two games, that should be enough for Wittman to keep his…

  5. 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…

  6. Otto Porter active, could make Wizards debut Friday night

    Dec 6, 2013, 6:52 PM EDT

    Otto Porter

    Otto Porter, the No. 3 pick of the Washington Wizards and the guy seen as their small forward of the future, could make his NBA debut Friday night. Porter, who strained his hip flexor in September and missed all of training camp and the start of the season, is active for the Wizards Friday night…

  7. Marcin Gortat jokes Otto Porter so small he “might get destroyed”

    Dec 5, 2013, 9:53 PM EDT

    2013 NBA Rookie Photo Shoot

    Otto Porter could make his Washington Wizards debut this weekend. He has been out since before training camp with a hip flexor injury, but the No. 3 pick overall could get some NBA action soon. And teammate Marcin Gortat is worried about him. Jokingly. But Porter’s slight frame (6’9, 198 pounds) became a joke, as…

  8. Otto Porter close to making Wizards debut, Thursday practice key

    Dec 4, 2013, 5:14 PM EDT

    2013 NBA Rookie Photo Shoot

    The Washington Wizards have gone 7-3 in their last 10 and have moved into the No. 3 seed in the East (at 9-9, but still the three seed) all without having the No. 3 pick in the last draft Otto Porter, who was supposed to be the starting three on this team. But they could…

  9. 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…

  10. 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…

  12. Wizards’ Otto Porter to have MRI on hip injury that caused him to miss preseason

    Oct 28, 2013, 2:44 PM EDT

    Otto Porter

    Otto Porter may be the small forward of the future in Washington, but he is still not be the small forward of right now. He has missed all of training camp and the preseason with a hip flexor injury that now team doctors will do an MRI on, reports J. Michael at CSNWashington.com. While reports…

  13. 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…

  14. Still no timetable for Otto Porter’s return to Wizards

    Oct 16, 2013, 2:40 PM EDT

    Otto Porter

    Like a lot of rookies, the speed of the NBA game — even the Summer League game — caught Otto Porter off guard. It’s an adjustment for everyone coming into the league. Problem is Porter hasn’t had a chance to catch up during training camp due to a hip flexor injury that has kept the…

  15. Nene stays behind for day in Brazil for personal reasons

    Oct 14, 2013, 7:56 PM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Washington Wizards - NBA Global Games Rio 2013

    Let’s get this out of the way up front — Nene is not injured. After the last few years when Nene seemed to constantly battle various injuries, whenever something out of the ordinary happened with him fans were conditioned to expect the worst. However, that is not why he stayed behind in his native Brazil…

  16. Otto Porter’s quiet act of kindness: Buys homeless guy lunch, sits down with him

    Oct 9, 2013, 12:16 PM EDT

    Otto Porter

    There are plenty of NBA guys who will tell you all about their big money charitable foundations. For many of them it is a tax write-off and a chance to get some good PR but something they barely pay attention to, while there is a handful who are serious about the cause they focus on.…

  17. 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:…

  18. 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…

  19. 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…

  20. 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.…

  21. Wizards expect a lot of growth from John Wall this season

    Sep 12, 2013, 2:22 PM EDT

    Washington Wizards' Wall brings ball up court past coach Wittman during NBA basketball game against Toronto Raptors in Washington

    There are a lot of things that need to go right for the Washington Wizards to make their playoff goal — Nene needs to stay healthy and be a force in the paint, Bradley Beal needs to take a step forward, Otto Porter has to fit in, Emeka Okafor needs a solid season. But in…

  22. John Wall organizing mini-camp for Wizards’ players

    Aug 26, 2013, 2:42 PM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers v Washington Wizards

    Expectations are up in Washington this year — they think they can jump from 29 wins to the playoffs. They will have a healthy (and much wealthier) John Wall at the point, a more experienced Bradley Beal at the two, hopefully a healthy Nene at the five. Martell Webster will be back and there is…
