Remember, Nene and DeJuan Blair are suspended vs. Miami after scuffle with Bulls. Bradley Beal and Josh McRoberts are also inactive for game
Washington had 4 guys suspended for opener, but only 2 (Nene, Blair) made team. Also w/o Beal/Webster. Gortat, Gooden, Pierce, Temple, Wall.
Paul Pierce said he got some time at the 4 in scrimmage today. Without Blair and Nene Weds, he could be at the 4 a bit.
Blair strikes me as the “break in case of emergency” guy. You use him at the 5 in tiny lineups when you need offense. Miscast as a 4.
Every few days I remember the Wizards have DeJuan Blair coming off the bench and I get excited all over again
