Wizards Insider: July 13, 2008 - July 19, 2008

A strange one....

Some of are watching the replay of the game now so turn away. The Wiz won 80-75 in OT tonight after Houston Rockets rookie forward Joey Dorsey, who wasn't even dressed due to a left ankle injury, earned a technical fould and was ejected from the bench for jawing...

Wiz and Rockets, Game 4

I just got done chatting with Nick Young before the Wizards tipped off against the Rockets and Nick, who entered tonight's game averaging 10.7 points on 31.3 percent shooting, talked about trying to "settle down" tonight and tomorrow in the finale. "I think I've been trying to force things...

Wiz win

Before we get to the Wizards, Golden State rookie Anthony Randolph just threw down a sick one-handed tip jam right in front of me. See it. As for the Wizards, they won 72-69 over Cleveland tonight to improve to 1-2 in summer league play. It wasn't pretty and several...

Wiz and Cavs, Game 3 of SL

Oleksiy Pecherov just told me that he will not play tonight against the Cavaliers or for the final two summer league games as he works to get back on that sprained left ankle. Pecherov has been shooting but hasn't practiced and said the ankle still needs more time. I...

Vegas baby, Vegas!

Not long after walking into Dulles for my flight to Las Vegas this morning, I spotted a couple of Wiz fans (Mike and Tony) who had just checked in themselves. They recognized me and said that they've been to Vegas numerous times in the past but had never caught...

Wiz 0-2

The main thing I took away from last night's summer league game was this: the 76ers are stacked with young talent. We all know about Thaddeus Young, who worked out for the Wizards prior to last summer's draft, but how about Jason Smith and rookie big man Marreese Speights?...

Game 2 tonight

I haven't commented too much on the first summer league game, a close loss to Portland the other night, because many of you watched it and formed your own ideas and, I guess I'm far more curious to see how the squad responds tonight when Game 2 tips off...

Pecherov update

Oleksiy Pecherov, who missed last night's summer league opening loss to Portland with a sprained left ankle, is expected to miss tomorrow's game against Philadelphia but could play in the final three games. I fly to Las Vegas Friday morning and will be on hand for the weekend games....
