On any normal day, the Wizards would have held practice at Verizon Center on Monday morning, then left by charter in the afternoon for a game the following day. But Monday was hardly a normal day. Hurricane Sandy made certain of that. 

Instead, the team cancelled Monday’s practice and left around 8 a.m. from Dulles airport just in time to avoid the approaching storm.
