John Wall

S/o to Tk @pti for rocking the @adidashoops #jwalls !! http://t.co/KySGzbHnY3

Chris Miller

Who in the world now will start at 2 guard for the @Washington Wizards Friday vs. @Charlotte Hornets with Rice Jr. down with an ankle injury? #WizardsTalk

Ben Standig

Rice on crutches in locker room.

Ben Standig

Wittman praising Seraphin for nice kick out passes, recogniing when double teams. Not sure I recall hearing such praise before.

Ben Standig

Witt says Rice is day-to-day. Ankle swelled up. Said they will put the ankle "in a contraption" to help with the swelling.

Andrew Sharp

Too early to start Otto's All-Star campaign? Or...

Ben Standig

Waiting for Witt. Let's review the box score. Xavier Silas with a Nick Young-esque 12 3-point attempts in 25 minutes. Made 3. Most in flow.

Ben Standig

Final: Wizards 101-95. Porter 19 pts, 8 reb, 4 stl, 4 ast. Seraphin 18 and 11. Now let's go see what's up with Rice.

Jorge Castillo

Porter hits a tough basket to give the #Wizards a 98-93 lead w/1:08 remaining. Porter has 19p, 8r, 4a.

Andrew Sharp

"Get off the drama coaster, Lisa. Good luck making that choice." -- Delilah, always keeping it 100 emoji

Ben Standig

Late in the game. Crowd getting loud. Opponent misses two straight free throws. Yep, free Chick-fil-a for all.

Jorge Castillo

Jeff Allen just missed 2 free throws so everyone in attendance gets free Chick-fil-A apparently.

Jorge Castillo

The #Wizards say 10,923 are attending this basketball game. I’m not sold.

Ben Standig

Every time I see someone use #WizHaifa I think Wiz Khalifa.

Ben Standig

Stat stuffer RT @Truth_About_It: Otto has 13 pts, 7 rebounds (4 off.), 4 assists, 2 steals, 0 turnovers & one nice block in 26 minutes.

Mike Prada

Can’t watch, but if Otto is doing what he’s doing and hitting 3s, he needed to start at the 2 regardless. The 3s part is critical

Ben Standig

Otto just went full Alonzo Mourning on that block he sent into the stands.

Ben Standig

Gortat just went all James Bond villian like on that chase down block. Nasty and great hustle.

Ben Standig

I was just reminded that Xavier Silas actually couldn't start opening night cause of that suspension. Wall, Temple, Miller, go hard.

Ben Standig

GRJR out for rest of the game with a sprained right ankle.

Jorge Castillo

#Wizards say Rice has a sprained right ankle and he’s out for the rest of the game.

Jorge Castillo

Rice left the game hurt and walked straight to the locker room. Not exactly what the #Wizards need right now.

Ben Standig

It's gone from will Wiz use 15th roster spot to will Xavier Silas make the team to will Xavier Silas start opening night next to Wall.

Ben Standig

smh RT @Todd_Dybas: Rice is hurting on the floor. Limps straight to the back. Last thing the #Wizards wanted to see.

Ben Standig

No John Wall for the start of the 3Q. Garrett Temple at PG. Gortat only "starter" on the court.

Ben Standig

Obviously the result of this game doesn't really matter. That said, it was described in the press room has having a 16-seed vs. No. 1 feel.

Ben Standig

Halftime: The shorthanded, but NBA Wizards trail Maccabi Haifa 55-54. Haifa sinking 8 of 13 3's part of issue. Wiz blah-ish. Rice with 11.

Michael Lee

Yup! RT @HuggyLowdownDC: Congrats to the Royals! I know the people in Kansas City are popping Bottles of........ http://t.co/y0MhwuJpD4

Jorge Castillo

Yivzori averaged 8.9 points in 15 Eurocup games for Haifa last season.

Ben Standig

Israeli League fantasy pickup. RT @Jorge Castillo: Dagan Yivzori has made 5 of 6 threes and has 17 points off the Haifa bench. #Wizards

Jorge Castillo

A man named Dagan Yivzori has made 5 of 6 threes and has 17 points off the Haifa bench. #Wizards

Jorge Castillo

Actually Seraphin is 4 of 6 from FT line. Point remains the same.

Jorge Castillo

Seraphin is having his way down low. Couple dunks and 5 of 7 from FT line already. He’s got 10p and 6r. #Wizards

Ben Standig

Thinking Drew Gooden might have more dunks this game than all of last year. He's clearly not stopped up today, @Dan Steinberg.

Jorge Castillo

Haifa keeping it close with the 3. They’re 5 of 9 from behind the arc and trail 34-30.

Ben Standig

Drew Gooden looking all kinds of limber on that follow slam. By the way, can we call him "Uncle Drew" or is that just Kyrie's domain?

Jorge Castillo

#Wizards lead 29-25 after 1Q. Porter = 8 pts, 5 reb. Silas = 6 pts off bench. Wall = 5 pts, 5 ast.

Ben Standig

Wizards 29-25 after 1Q. Ott with 8 pts. Xavier Silas the latest corner 3-point shooter finding success playing with John Wall.

Jorge Castillo

Drew Gooden III in for Blair. This is Gooden’s 2nd appearance of the preseason. He had been dealing with a sore hamstring. #Wizards

Jorge Castillo

Silas has made 2 corner 3s in 3 minutes. #Wizards lead 29-19.

Ben Standig

No Nene helps in this area. RT @Jorge Castillo: #Wizards made 31 of 44 free throws Sunday. They’re already 9 of 11 w/3 minutes left in 1Q.

Jorge Castillo

#Wizards made 31 of 44 free throws Sunday. They’re already 9 of 11 w/3 minutes left in 1Q.

Ben Standig

The Wizards are winning on the scoreboard, but not in terms of shooting degree of difficulty. Maccabi making highlight reel shots.

Jorge Castillo

Wall had his left thumb wrapped for some of Friday’s game vs. Hornets and it’s wrapped again tonight. #Wizards

Michael Lee

Yes! http://t.co/Pb3rYAKfeR

Wizards pregame: Wittman resting key starters versus Maccabi Haifa csnwashington.com/basketball-was… #WizardsTalk

Ben Standig

Wizards starting 5: Wall, Rice, Otto, Blair, Gortat. Former Va Tech star and DC native Jeff Allen starts for Haifa.

Ben Standig

Paul Pierce won't play tonight. Still working up quite the sweat in shootaround. Defending Gortat here #wizardstalk http://t.co/hcKF8AJzdF

Jorge Castillo

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

Michael Lee

Alex Gordon caught the ball, dented the wall & somehow lived to tell about it vine.co/v/OqwOMebDbQK

Jorge Castillo

Wittman said Pierce and Nene aren’t playing tonight. Coach’s decision. #Wizards

Ben Standig

No Nene or Pierce tonight for the Wizards. Coach's decision, per Wittman. #WizardsTalk

David Amerson (concussion) and Perry Riley (sprained left knee) were limited in the #Redskins' Wednesday practice: wtim.es/ZEuHie

Ben Standig

Time never moves slower than when waiting for your laptop to install 17 updates when you need to hustle crosstown.

Zac Boyer

Gruden said unequivocally that Griffin will be the starting quarterback when he's cleared to return.

Zac Boyer

Gruden on getting D.Jackson to block: "It's not a tough sell. He wants to block. He's just little."

Zac Boyer

Gruden: "We can't just hang our head: 'You stink, I stink, we stink, everybody stinks.' You guys can say that."

Zac Boyer

Gruden said Griffin "still does need some work." It's more than throwing - it's handling protections, being safe, reading defenses, etc.

Zac Boyer

Gruden said Griffin's practice went fine. Simply threw to receivers.

Zac Boyer

Gruden said the changes to the practice schedule (basically just times) is a bit of a shakeup to help get out of the funk.

Zac Boyer

Griffin did not do anything more than individual drills. Porter, T.Williams, Jordan, Clark did not practice.

Ben Standig

John Wall & Andre Miller rarely shared the court last season. I asked Randy Wittman if that changes without Beal. csnwashington.com/basketball-was…

Mike Prada

The Spurs are renaming their D-League team, huh? Guess there won't be any more Toros in Austin's atmosphere.

Andrew Sharp

I already regret picking Oregon, but I'm sticking with Mark Richt until the bitter end grantland.com/the-triangle/c…

Zac Boyer

Cardinals kicker Chandler Catanzaro was the NFC special teams player of the week. Had three FGs, six of seven touchbacks vs. #Redskins.

Ben Standig

Anybody remember where they were when a tornado warning was issued for D.C. and the skies opened as the Mayans predicted?

Zac Boyer

Also: RT @glennonsports Gruden said never got offer from Titans after interview. Washington offered him that night.

Zac Boyer

On Titans call: RT @glennonsports Gruden says RGIII will start throwing to receivers today, but still not close to returning for game.

Zac Boyer

Hankerson busted out every metaphor for return to practice: Kid in a candy shop, Christmas morning, etc. Safe to say he's excited for today.

Cousins said his turnovers have been "atrocious." He's trying to do too much late in games, he said.

Zac Boyer

They have also announced that Leonard Hankerson and Stephen Bowen will be permitted to return to practice today.

Zac Boyer

The #Redskins announced they have signed WR Rashad Ross to the practice squad.
