REMINDER: GORTAT IS AWESOME. http://t.co/zqWgOddsGm

Jorge Castillo

Gortat got up slowly after getting fouled going to the basket. He’s walking gingerly to the free-throw line. Looks like he hurt an ankle.

Jorge Castillo

All 5 #Wizards starters in double figures. Wall leads w/19p, 10a. Gortat has 14p, 9r. Wizards lead 76-61 w/3:24 left in 3Q.

Josh Robbins

Jacque Vaughn receives a technical foul -- likely for wanting a carry on Marcin Gortat. Vaughn's right on that one.

Jorge Castillo

John Wall hits a 3 as times expires to give #Wizards 54-51 lead at half. Wall has 10p and 9a. Nene has 11p. Temple, Gortat w/10p each.

Jorge Castillo

From the bench, Gortat yelled out to Porter to post up on Ridnour. He settled for a jumper.

Jorge Castillo

#Wizards starters: Wall, Temple, Pierce, Nene, Gortat. #Magic starters: Payton, Fournier, Harris, Frye, Vucevic.

Mike Prada

Wiz definitely need to consider staggering Gortat and Nene’s minutes, though. Humphries’ D was not good.

Jorge Castillo

Wizards down 53-52 at the half. Bosh leads all w/19p. Gooden leads Wizards w/13. Pierce has 11. Gortat has 10. Wall = 8p, 9a.

Jason Lieser

HALF: Heat 53, Wizards 52. Bosh hurting Gortat from the outside and everyone else in the post. He has 19p on 6/9, 5r.

Mike Prada

Wiz may need to think about staggering Nene and Gortat when the former returns from suspension. No rim protection otherwise.

Jason Lieser

End Q1: Wizards 28, Heat 22. Deng: 6p, 2r. Bosh: 3p, 3r. Cole: 8p, 1a. Gortat leads WAS with 8p

Mike Prada

There’s so little spacing without Beal (and Nene). But defense looks pretty good aside from a couple odd Pierce and Gortat mistakes.

Anthony Slater

Marcin Gortat got that Birdman look going this season, minus 90 percent of the tattoos http://t.co/f864KshfUo

Ethan J. Skolnick

Marcin Gortat & Chris Andersen will be re-enacting a Sons of Anarchy episode tonight

Chris Miller

Ethan J. Skolnick

Washington had 4 guys suspended for opener, but only 2 (Nene, Blair) made team. Also w/o Beal/Webster. Gortat, Gooden, Pierce, Temple, Wall.

Jorge Castillo

#Wizards Game 1 starters: John Wall, Garrett Temple, Paul Pierce, Drew Gooden III, Marcin Gortat.

Surya Fernandez

#Heat starters: Bosh, Deng, Williams, Wade, Cole. #Wizards starters: Gortat, Pierce, Gooden, Temple, Wall.

Israel Gutierrez

Didn't realize Gortat had gone full Birdman with the hair. http://t.co/WGVnATovT5

Craig Stouffer

Yeah, Gortat! RT @Marcin Gortat: Let's go @dcunited in the MLS playoffs! #getonboard

Jorge Castillo

#Wizards going w/ small-ball lineup down the stretch: Wall, Porter, Butler, James, Gortat.

Jorge Castillo

Shumpert just tried dunking on Gortat. It didn’t work out and Temple’s outlet to Wall leads to an easy dunk. #Wizards

Mike Prada

Gortat’s rhythm is off. He has to duck in when Wall is driving to the rim in transition like that.

Jorge Castillo

#Wizards starters: Nene, Porter, Gortat, Temple, Wall. #Knicks: Carmelo, Jason Smith, Dalembert, Hardaway Jr., Larkin.

Jorge Castillo

Marcin Gortat’s assessment of tonight’s contest: “It was an awful game…It would’ve been better if we stayed in bed.” #Wizarda

Sean Kelley

Wizards starting Miller, Temple, Porter, Nene, and Gortat. @New Orleans Pelicans will have to measure themselves vs the film tonight.

Jorge Castillo

#Wizards starting lineup: Miller, Temple, Porter, Nene, Gortat. #Pelicans: Holiday, Gordon, Evans, Davis, Asik.

Jorge Castillo

Wall, Temple, Porter, Nene, and Gortat are the listed probable starters tonight in Baltimore. Pierce didn’t practice yesterday w/knee bruise

VIDEO: Michael Kidd-Gilchrist dunks on Marcin Gortat's face cbsprt.co/1Ff0wi4 http://t.co/nn5nRYqbl4

Jorge Castillo

#Wizards starters: Wall, Temple, Pierce, Nene, Gortat. #Hornets: Walker, Neal, Kidd-Gilchrist, Williams, Jefferson.

Jorge Castillo

The first thing Marcin Gortat bought after signing his $60-million contract was a $150 lionfish. It’s still alive. washingtonpost.com/lifestyle/maga…

Jorge Castillo

#Wizards starting lineup: Wall, Rice, Porter, Blair, Gortat. DC native and Virginia Tech product Jeff Allen starting for Maccabi Haifa.

Lang Greene

John Wall, Brad Beal, Marcin Gortat and Nene have all missed at least 20 games in one of the last two seasons. Injuries big question in WAS

Jorge Castillo

Wizards win 91-89. 5 players in double figures. Gortat double-double. Miller 11 assists.

Tom Ziller

Please tell me Marcin Gortat is fronting a Dischord tribute band.

Rashad Mobley

Silas ran hard off the ball, was rewarded with a pass from Gortat, and found Blair underneath for an easy basket.

Rashad Mobley

Andre Drummond has blocked the shots of Nene, Gortat and Blair tonight. He's pretty good

Jorge Castillo

#Wizards lead 51-47 at the half. Silas leads Wizards w/10 pts. Miller 6 ast, Gortat 6 reb. Wizards shooting 43.2% from the field.

Jorge Castillo

Pretty pass from Wall to Gortat for an easy dunk gives #Wizards 13-12 lead w/6:05 left in 1Q. Wall settling in after rough start.

Mike Prada

Gortat missed an easy bunny, then didn’t at all realize Drummond running behind him. Ugly.

Jorge Castillo

#Wizards starters: Wall, Rice, Pierce, Nene, Gortat. #Pistons: Jennings, Caldwell-Pope, Butler, Monroe, Drummond.

Rashad Mobley

Nene and Gortat will start for the Wiz, and Monroe and Drummond will start for the DET. No Josh Smith. Caron Butler will start for DET too.

Vincent Ellis

MT @Keith_Langlois Jennings, KCP, Butler, Monroe, Drummond for #Pistons. Wall, Rice, Pierce, Nene, Gortat for #Wizards. Tip at 1, FS Detroit

Jorge Castillo

Glen Rice Jr. is listed as the probable starter in place of Beal today alongside Pierce, Nene, Gortat, and Wall. #Wizards
