Washington is on a two-game losing streak, but it also hasn't won at Phillips Arena since 2008, which translates to 10 consecutive losses.
Glen Rice's 29 minutes in his first start were a career-high, and he probably did well enough to warrant another look from coach Randy Wittman, who wanted him to play with a more veteran group.
Otto Porter sought the advice of Martell Webster after his shaky debut when he played just 14 minutes and didn't contribute much.
The Wizards almost overcame the loss of three starters to pull out a victory, but they scored just 29 points in the second half and failed to convert a field goal in the last four minutes.
With so many players ailing, the Wizards have to be careful to not put too much strain on Otto Porter and his right hip flexor too soon.

The Wizards fought back from a 15-point deficit and game-ending injuries to Martell Webster and Nene, but wilted in overtime to the Bucks 109-105.
Otto Porter was a game-time decision, but entered the game Friday against Milwaukee after Martell Webster went down with an injury. Details here.
Otto Porter was a game-time decision, but an update from coach Randy Wittman indicates that he should be available when Washington takes on Milwaukee on Friday. (7 p.m., CSN)
With a limited roster, starting lineup and end of game decisions are rather apparent for the Wizards. When all return, not so much.
Georgetown (4-2) hosts High Point Thursday night and hopes its overall wayward 3-point shooting shows as well.
Otto Porter practiced well for the second day in a row and will be called a game-time decision for Friday.
Marcin Gortat has been impressed by rookie Otto Porter who is on the verge of playing for the first time, but he believes he may need to add weight to handle the NBA grind.
Coach Randy Wittman has to see what Otto Porter looks like in back-to-back practices before declaring his status for Friday's game vs. Milwaukee.
Washington has won nine games so far, and would have to win 41 more to live up to center Marcin Gortat's projections if they're able to resume full health.
"I'm still emotional. This was my first game playing in the NBA. This is what I have been working my whole life for. It was pretty cool and I was excited," said Porter, the No. 3 overall pick who was injured Sept. 13 and didn't start practicing again until a week ago.
"I'm not going to come in and change anything," Porter said -- and correctly so.
