Martell Webster has missed two games with a sore back but coach Randy Wittman seems confident that he'll be on the court Saturday.
Martell Webster has missed two games with a sore back but coach Randy Wittman will have a better idea of his availability after Friday's practice.
The Wizards have won seven of eight games after a comprehensive effort from the starters and the bench to overwhelm the Utah Jazz on Wednesday, 104-91.
Martell Webster is being called a game-time decision vs. the Jazz because he has a sore back, which means rookie Otto Porter likely will have a chance to build on what he did Monday.
Last season, Georgetown's Otto Porter and Michigan's Trey Burke were up for many college Player of the Year awards. The Wizard and Jazz rookie now battle on the court in the NBA.
The Otto Porter-Tayshaun Prince comparisons have existed for some time. The veteran NBA forward understands them in more ways than one.
The lead was down to two after Bradley Beal's 3-pointer with 8.9 seconds remaining, but time ran out not a moment too soon for Memphis, which made its free throws in the closing seconds to preserve a 110-104 win Monday night.
The Wizards are hopeful that Martell Webster won't be out long after someone fell on his back in a game in Philadelphia over the weekend.
Otto Porter played his best game in quite some time, scoring all six points in the fourth quarter of a comeback that came up short vs. Memphis.
The Wizards came out flat, and a crucial stretch to end the third quarter proved to be the difference as their winning streak ended at six with a 110-104 loss.
It hasn't been the rookie season the Wizards planned on when they took Otto Porter No. 3 overall, but against the Grizzlies, Porter hit his first NBA three pointer.
Tayshaun Prince was having his best scoring game of the season, and the Memphis Grizzlies were cruising in the fourth quarter, when a loose ball somehow ended up in the hands of little-used Washington Wizards rookie Otto Porter. Porter let it fly to beat the shot clock - and it went in for his first NBA 3-pointer.
Trevor Ariza set a career-high with 40 points, making his first eight three-point shots, and John Wall had 16 assists in just 29 minutes to dominate the Sixers as the Wizards won their sixth game in a row 122-103.
The Wizards don't have any room for rookie Glen Rice on the active roster -- he hasn't played since Dec. 14 -- so he's doing a second D-League stint.
Questions constantly asked: What's up with Wizards rookie Otto Porter and why isn't he playing?
"Our concepts, it comes with playing, whether you read the defense right and stuff like that," Porter said of his understanding how to play in coach Randy Wittman's system. "It's definitely coming the more I play."
"I never thought about D-League," Porter said. "They send Glen down, they can send me down, too."
