#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

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

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

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.

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

Jorge Castillo

Wall finds Gortat with long pass for easy layup. #Wizards on 8-1 run. Cut deficit to 17-12.

Jorge Castillo

Steve Aschburner

Cold enough in less-than-full United Center that Wiz C Marcin Gortat might be wishing he hadn't Mohawked his head o' hair.

Kris Willis

Pierce in a Wizards jersey RT @Mike Prada: Things that are still weird: 1. Gortat’s mohawk. 2. Pau in a Bulls jersey.

Joe Cowley

Gortat learning that guys with mohawks don't get calls. Just can't do it.

Joe Cowley

Still no answer for Gortat ... months later.

Mike Prada

Things that are still weird: 1. Gortat’s mohawk. 2. Pau in a Bulls jersey.

Sean Highkin

Gasol jumped against Gortat at the opening tip. They introduced him as PF.

Joe Cowley

Thibs finally announces starters - Dunleavy, Gasol, Noah, Butler and Rose. Wiz - Pierce, former Mr. Kardashian, Gortat, Wall, Beal.

#Wizards on hook for $32.3 million for Wall, Gortat, Humphries in 2016-17 plus Porter’s $5.8 mil team option. Blair & Webster unguaranteed.

In five years, Marcin Gortat’s new deal will be the mid-level exception.

Alex Kennedy

Channing Frye said Ronnie Price, Marcin Gortat, Tobias Harris praised the city, fans, facility and roster, which persuaded him to join ORL.

Jeff Wade

So is this true, the "Polish Hammer" now wants to be known as "White Sexual Chocolate?" Excellent news, very excited about this development.

Casey Philip

How could @Martell Webster & @Marcin Gortat wait to get that epic hair until after I was gone?! Coulda had some fun w/ that! #WizMediaDay

Adi Joseph
