Latest Trevor Booker Items
The Wizards anticipated that little-used Chris Singleton, who doesn't have a contract for next season, would get his chance to prove his value with the trade of Jan Vesely and other injury concerns.
With Nene out for at least the next six weeks the Wizards will turn to the likes of Kevin Seraphin, Chris Singleton, and Trevor Booker to fill that void.
Now that the Wizards know they'll be without their best low post player in Nene, they're confident they can find ways to win without him until he returns.
Nene's knee injury, even if not season-ending, likely will force the Wizards to consider some other options which could benefit them long-term.
Drew Gooden is likely to get a 10-day contract from the Wizards, but they want to give Kevin Seraphin, Trevor Booker and Chris Singleton a chance to prove they're ready for a bigger role first.
Glen Davis, bought out by the Magic last week before working out an agreement with the Clippers before Nene's injury, likely would've been the best fit for the Wizards.
If the Wizards can win their third game in a row they'll be at .500 again, even the season series with the Cavaliers and get back on track to close the regular season strong.
Usually when Trevor Booker is on the court good things happen for the Wizards, who ended a three-game losing streak in Atlanta on Wednesday.
The Wizards squandered a 20-point lead but were able to end an 11-game losing streak in Atlanta as seven players scored in double figures for a 114-97 victory.
