Near-demotion spurs Trevor Booker

About two months ago, Coach Flip Saunders considered sending Trevor Booker to the Wizards' Development-League affiliate before Booker gave him reason to think otherwise. "I said, because I know what you do, if you play hard, you can be a very effective player in this league. From that time forward,...

Shorthanded Wizards get set for more intense practice

With a host of newcomers and a growing list of injuries, the Washington Wizards head into Day 2 of what Coach Flip Saunders called an in-season training camp that's expected to have the feel of an open tryout. Unlike yesterday's lighter practice though, this morning's session is expected to be...

Final 20 games far from meaningless

The Wizards need to win four of their final 20 games to avoid matching the franchise record for fewest wins in an 82-game season. That might not seem like much of a challenge, but they just completed their worst 20-game stretch of the season, going 3-17, with an eight-game losing...

John Wall: 'I think I'm getting my step back'

He has won Eastern Conference rookie of the month honors again, and he came within two assists of his second career triple-double in a win against Minnesota, but the real proof that John Wall is starting to regain his pre-injury form came near the end of the first quarter against...

Maurice Evans seeks strong finish for Wizards

Maurice Evans isn't used to being on a lottery team, having been around playoff teams in Minnesota, Sacramento, Detroit, the Los Angeles Lakers, Orlando and Atlanta. And when he watched film of the Wizards' 28-point loss to Chicago before his first practice with the team on Tuesday, Evans witnessed the...
