Livingston Trying to End Wizards Streak
The Wizards were 0-7 when he signed (Shaun) Livingston but the losses eat at him, as well. He is eager to help his teammates end their season-long misery.
“I feel like I came in and I have the same burden in a sense,” Livingston said. “I might not feel it as much, just because I haven’t been here from day one. But I’m still in the locker room, with the team and so their losses are my losses.”
Livingston was signed to help the Wizards stem the tide while John Wall recovers from a stress injury in his left knee. Wall was projected to return after eight weeks, but that was nine weeks ago. He has started to increase his workload and is moving around more and participating in pregame workouts.
Wittman still can’t offer a timetable for Wall’s return but said he is getting closer. “Oh yeah, a little more each day. Progress is being made. No setbacks. Nothing has come back in the last couple of weeks. It’s been status quo, always been a step forward, so that’s a good sign.”
