Wizards Using Depth to Overcome Injuries

John Wall and Kevin Seraphin watched the Washington Wizards’ preseason finale loss to San Antonio together on a comfortable leather couch in the District, as two of the team’s three most tenured players continue to recover from injuries.
Wall is expected to miss the first month of the regular season with a stress injury in his left knee but the Wizards aren’t sure when they’ll have Nene or Seraphin, who suffered a strained right calf in the third preseason game in Cleveland. Chris Singleton, Booker and Okafor also missed games because of illness and injury.
“Injuries happen. They are inevitable and you can’t do anything to prevent them,” forward Martell Webster said. “When that happens, you have to have guys step up. I tip my hat to my teammates this preseason, because guys stepped up when guys went down and we were able to win some games. That shows you a little bit about our character. That don’t-back-down mentality.”
“We had a good preseason and we got to see a lot of people in a lot of different spots,” Wittman said. “I thought our consistency, from my standpoint, was good with the guys we have missing. That’s what we have to do — we go to out and play with that consistency every night and we’ll be fine.”
