The Wizards (29-20) have to determine if heâ€™ll be able to contribute by Feb. 16. Thatâ€™ll be the last chance to survey their options before playing again Feb. 24 â€“ one day after the trade deadline. â€śThe reaction to everything Iâ€™ve done is much better,â€ť Mahinmi said of how his knees feel compared to earlier in the season after he came back for a procedure in October. â€śI felt like seeing Dr. (James) Andrews was great. It was obviously the right move. I feel like Iâ€™m fixed.â€ť

Ryan Wolstat: Devin Booker wins the three-point shootout with 28, beating Klay Thompson and Tobias Harris. Klay had 25
Derek Bodner: Devin Booker: “My preparation was none. My rookie year I stayed at the gym extra, shot off the rack a lot more. This time I just got here, practiced right before I went out there and ended up coming out with the win.”
Mark Medina: Klay Thompson on if he will play 3-point shootout in Charlotte next year. “Maybe. We’ll see. It’s a long ways away man. Just trying to get through the weekend.” Steph expressed uncertainty earlier this week, too.
Chris Dempsey: Jamal Murray wants to participate in it again. “I want to do the skills again. Itâ€™s a fun event. A lot of people want to pass over the skills and just go to the dunk contest or the 3-point contest. But to watch it and be in it are two different things. It was a lot of fun.”
