John Wall, Gilbert Arenas and JaVale McGee all made the 2011 NBA all-star ballot, helping the Wizards secure the minimum three players from each team.

Another embarrassing loss to an elite team

The Wizards have three wins this season against teams with a combined eight wins. The Boston Celtics claimed their Eastern Conference-leading ninth victory with their 114-83 annihilation of the Wizards on Wednesday night.

John Wall out against Boston?

John Wall traveled with the Wizards to Boston after their 109-94 win over Toronto, but it appears unlikely that he will test his sprained left foot against the Boston Celtics on Wednesday. My left foot still hurts! (AP Photo) Wall missed the Wizards' most complete game of the season, as...

Wizards hopeful Wall will play tonight

Even with John Wall absent from last night's 109-94 victory over Toronto, the Washington Wizards departed for Boston self-assured not just because of the convincing result minus their prized rookie but also knowing he could be back tonight against the Celtics. Wall made the trip with the team shortly after...

Is it finally time for Gilbert Arenas?

From a struggling reserve with a minutes limitation to a starter? It could happen for Gilbert Arenas only four days after it appeared that his return to form was going to be a prolonged endeavor. His jump shot was off target and he was slow to get in proper game...

Pattern developing for gimpy Wizards

If the Wizards keep with their season-long trend, they will defeat Toronto on Tuesday, then lose the next two games to Boston and Memphis. The Wizards (2-6) have lost two, won one, lost two, won one, and lost two. At least they've been consistent in one area. John Wall has...
