Rice on crutches in locker room.
Wittman praising Seraphin for nice kick out passes, recogniing when double teams. Not sure I recall hearing such praise before.
Witt says Rice is day-to-day. Ankle swelled up. Said they will put the ankle "in a contraption" to help with the swelling.
Too early to start Otto's All-Star campaign? Or...
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.
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.
Wizards win 101-95.

Late in the game. Crowd getting loud. Opponent misses two straight free throws. Yep, free Chick-fil-a for all.
Jeff Allen just missed 2 free throws so everyone in attendance gets free Chick-fil-A apparently.
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
Otto just went full Alonzo Mourning on that block he sent into the stands.
Gortat just went all James Bond villian like on that chase down block. Nasty and great hustle.
I was just reminded that Xavier Silas actually couldn't start opening night cause of that suspension. Wall, Temple, Miller, go hard.
GRJR out for rest of the game with a sprained right ankle.
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.
No John Wall for the start of the 3Q. Garrett Temple at PG. Gortat only "starter" on the court.
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.
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.
Yivzori averaged 8.9 points in 15 Eurocup games for Haifa last season.
Actually Seraphin is 4 of 6 from FT line. Point remains the same.
Haifa keeping it close with the 3. They’re 5 of 9 from behind the arc and trail 34-30.
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?
Wizards 29-25 after 1Q. Ott with 8 pts. Xavier Silas the latest corner 3-point shooter finding success playing with John Wall.
The Wizards are winning on the scoreboard, but not in terms of shooting degree of difficulty. Maccabi making highlight reel shots.
I. Cannot. Believe. This!
Wizards starting 5: Wall, Rice, Otto, Blair, Gortat. Former Va Tech star and DC native Jeff Allen starts for Haifa.

Who is going to The game tonight???
Time never moves slower than when waiting for your laptop to install 17 updates when you need to hustle crosstown.
Gruden said unequivocally that Griffin will be the starting quarterback when he's cleared to return.
Gruden on getting D.Jackson to block: "It's not a tough sell. He wants to block. He's just little."
Gruden: "We can't just hang our head: 'You stink, I stink, we stink, everybody stinks.' You guys can say that."
Gruden said Griffin "still does need some work." It's more than throwing - it's handling protections, being safe, reading defenses, etc.
Gruden said Griffin's practice went fine. Simply threw to receivers.
Gruden said the changes to the practice schedule (basically just times) is a bit of a shakeup to help get out of the funk.
Griffin did not do anything more than individual drills. Porter, T.Williams, Jordan, Clark did not practice.
The Spurs are renaming their D-League team, huh? Guess there won't be any more Toros in Austin's atmosphere.
Anybody remember where they were when a tornado warning was issued for D.C. and the skies opened as the Mayans predicted?
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.
They have also announced that Leonard Hankerson and Stephen Bowen will be permitted to return to practice today.
Thank God for all of His blessings and for allowing us to see another day !!
