Washington Wizards Getting Inside 2008-11-18

Washington Wizards Getting Inside 2008-11-18
One of the many problems facing the Wizards at this early juncture of the season is that they are going to be short at the center position for the rest of the season.

There are plenty of big men on the roster -- Andray Blatche is 6-11 and Etan Thomas is 6-10 -- but they really aren't centers and this makes the absence of injured Brendan Haywood even more glaring.

Thomas, coming back off of heart surgery, will likely continue to start in the middle but he's really a power forward. And even though Blatche has the length to be a center he prefers to play either forward spot as opposed to the pivot.

Wizards coach Eddie Jordan is going to stick with Thomas as his starter for now because he likes to have experience on the floor at the start of games, but the bulk of the minutes in the pivot are going to go to emerging rookie JaVale McGee, a 7-footer who has shown good potential early on.

"When he's back there you know that you have that guy back there who is going to protect the rim," forward Caron Butler said. "He's going to help us a lot. He's a pleasant surprise."

HEAT 97, WIZARDS 77: Losers of all but one of their first seven games, the Wizards were as feeble as they have been all season in a loss at Miami on Friday night. Antawn Jamison led the Wizard with 15 points but got very little help. Meanwhile, Dwyane Wade finished with 24 points to lead Miami. Wade got plenty of help as Shawn Marion (12 points, 12 rebounds) and rookie Michael Beasley (19 points) helped the Heat cruise to victory.
