  • Otto Porter Jr. posted a solid all-around performance in Wednesday’s loss to the Chicago Bulls. The second-year wingman had 11 points and five rebounds in 30 minutes, and played a key role in helping the Wizards stay close in the fourth quarter. But that was all wiped away from the Internet’s memory with a brief — […]... read more...

  • The Washington Wizards travel to Chicago Monday afternoon a more complete group than they were just a few days before, but not entirely complete. While Bradley Beal (fibula) and Paul Pierce (knee) returned from injury in Saturday’s win over the Detroit Pistons and practiced Monday, Kris Humphries’s remains absent.

  • MINNEAPOLIS — Bradley Beal made the trip to Minnesota with the Washington Wizards, put on a pair of shorts, and did some work before the Wizards’ 20-point loss to the lowly Minnesota Timberwolves Wednesday.

  • Plenty has gone wrong for the Washington Wizards over the last month. Their defense has been porous. Their offense has been stagnant. Blown leads have been common. So too have been losses — 10 in their past 14 games. But one problem that has hounded the Wizards all season — even when they were generating […]... read more...

  • AUBURN HILLS, Mich. — The Washington Wizards went nearly their entire 38-point loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers Friday without a three-pointer. It took 13 attempts before Otto Porter Jr. finally made one in the fourth quarter with just 4 minutes 47 seconds remaining and the game’s outcome already decided. They finished 1-for-16 from the beyond […]... read more...

  • CHICAGO — Paul Pierce, slouched on the scorer’s table at United Center on Tuesday afternoon, scoffed at the question, an inquiry that had nothing to do with Tuesday night’s Eastern Conference clash between his Washington Wizards and the Chicago Bulls. “I’m locked in on the Chicago Bulls tonight, dog,” Pierce exclaimed jokingly. “I’m locked in […]... read more...

  • MINNEAPOLIS — The Washington Wizards left Verizon Center Tuesday night encouraged by their effort against the Golden State Warriors. Coach Randy Wittman and his players agreed they played better than in the first two games out of the all-star break.

  • PHILADELPHIA – Friday morning, as the Washington Wizards (33-26) concluded shoot-around, Bradley Beal got some shots up with teammates. His fibula was pain-free but he already knew he wouldn’t play Friday night in the Wizards’ 89-81 loss to the Philadelphia 76ers, Washington’s eighth straight game without him. Beal explained he wouldn’t return until he participated... read more...

  • The Washington Wizards returned to work Monday morning, the foul odor of another lopsided loss, their second in three days, still fresh and Coach Randy Wittman relayed a simple message to his players: “Right now we’re not playing very good.” The Wizards hoped they had sunk to their season’s low point before the all-star break, […]... read more...

  • Randy Wittman dissected the tape of his Washington Wizards’ disappointing loss Tuesday night to an undermanned version of the Chicago Bulls and came away with one prevailing assessment: his team didn’t sustain the necessary intensity for 48 minutes and it cost them. “We’ve got to go out and play. Play hard every play. Play with […]... read more...

  • Bradley Beal has worn Nikes his entire basketball life. He has always run the same way. For 19 years, the combination did not produce any significant leg injuries.

  • A seething Marcin Gortat, usually gregarious and effusive, was blunt Tuesday night as the Washington Wizards gathered their belongings for a late-night flight to Minneapolis. The Wizards had lost their fourth straight game, but his frustration went beyond the team result. Gortat spent three quarters tormenting the undersized Golden State Warriors front line. Coming off [... read more...

  • CHICAGO – The Washington Wizards, Coach Randy Wittman explained Monday, have been more successful against the Bulls than other Eastern Conference contenders over the last couple seasons because they match up better opposite Chicago.

  • The final numbers don’t suggest a significant impact. Bradley Beal, after all, made just two of his 10 shots from the floor and finished with eight points in the Washington Wizards’ streak-busting 99-95 win over the Detroit Pistons in his return from an eight-game absence because of a fibula injury. But Beal’s influence went beyond […]... read more...
