Nobody will be more happy to find the preseason end compared to the Washington Wizards; if it had gone on any longer, they’d have run out of healthy bodies completely.
With Martell Webster on the shelf following his third back operation in four seasons, the harms just kept coming.
Bradley Beal fractured his wrist, Glen Rice Jr. rolled his ankle, Kris Humphries ripped open his arm onto the rim (because when are those things sharp?) , requiring surgery. Even John Wall was restricted with knee tendinitis.
The Wizards’ oldest player was able to live the display slate unscathed. Paul Pierce, place to begin at small forward for the Wiz, provided some veteran perspective on the parade into the coach’s table, per Jorge Castillo of The Washington Post:”It’s been tough. It’s been challenging. We haven’t had a full squad most of the preseason. The key is understanding it is a very long season. The key is to become healthier.”
If the collective swelling recedes and all the stitches hold, Washington can nevertheless make good on the lofty expectations it set last season. Forty-four wins got people thinking in D.C., and the Wizards face a world where anything less than a top-four seed will constitute a disappointment.
Demands like which are as refreshing as they’re daunting, especially for a company with little success in yesteryear. In 33-1, the Wiz are not completely out of the championship picture, but they are still a notch below the East’s elite.
