With just a few weeks remaining until training camp, the Wizards have room to add another player to their 15-man roster. Whether they start camp with 14 players remains to be seen, but if they do add someone it won’t be Chris Singleton. The free-agent forward agreed to terms with the Indiana Pacers a person with knowledge of the situation confirmed to The Post’s Michael Lee. Eurobasket first reported the signing.

While the Wizards enter Monday with two key decisions on their hands — whether or not to extend qualifying offers to Trevor Booker and Kevin Seraphin so they remain restricted before free agency opens Tuesday — they’re likely to bring back Garrett Temple and haven’t ruled out re-signing Chris Singleton, three people with knowledge of the situation have confirmed with CSN Washington.
But according to league sources with knowledge of the situation, the Wizards have been unwilling or reluctant to part with a rotation player to make a deal happen. Chris Singleton has been shopped but hasn’t attracted much attention after averaging 3.7 points in just 14 games this season. Singleton hasn’t appeared in a game since getting three minutes against Philadelphia on Jan. 20, a string of 13 games.
And so, please do check out this video from Saturday night of Martell Webster and a teen-aged fan, somewhere in the depths of Verizon Center’s parking garage. The fan — who, with his suburban friends, likes to greet players in the parking garage after games — mistakenly called Webster “Chris Singleton.” Webster demanded an apology. This is what he got. Here’s to more fun stories featuring winning (or at least .500) teams, and fewer transcribed interviews about teams in disarray. Maybe. For a couple days, anyhow.
The injury bug to the Wizards’ forwards leads to the obvious question about the status of Otto Porter, the No. 3 overall draft pick in June, who has yet make an impact. There’s nothing new, of course, as he has yet to practice for more than two months. Coach Randy Wittman believes when he does return from his right hip flexor strain that it’ll be around the same time Chris Singleton gets back in the mix from left foot/toe surgery.

Wizards President Ernie Grunfeld announced that forward Chris Singleton will have outpatient surgery today to repair a Jones fracture to the fifth metatarsal of his left foot. He will be out approximately six to eight weeks. The injury occurred during a voluntary workout at Verizon Center on Tuesday. The Jones fracture was revealed following an X-Ray performed by team doctors and the surgery will be performed by Dr. Marc Connell and Dr. Ed Magur.
First, let’s do a roll call shall we? The following were present at the game, either participating in the game or watching from the sidelines: Yao Ming, Tracy Mcgrady, Joakim Noah, Metta World Peace, Luis Scola, George Hill, Kyle Lowry, Ricky Rubio, Chris Singleton, John Wall, Damian Lillard, Jrue Holiday, Chinese players Yi Jianlian, Wang Zhelin, Sun Yue, Liu Wei, Wang Zhi Zhi and super-famous Brazil and Real Madrid soccer/futbol player Kaka. Yes, that Kaka. (Bonus: Here’s a hilarious picture of Kaka with Yao and Wang Zhi Zhi from last night.)
“We have been able to bring in and develop this core group of talented, mature young players over the last several years, and we’re pleased to have them all signed through next season,” said Grunfeld. “Combining them with the veterans we’ve added gives us a solid foundation that can be competitive now while allowing us to continue to build towards future success.”
