Washington Wizards:

    Milwaukee Bucks superstar Giannis Antetokounmpo was sensationally ejected from their game against the Washington Wizards for a headbutt on Moritz Wagner.  Antetokounmpo, the NBA's reigning Most Valuable Player (MVP), channeled his inner Zinedine Zidane after he was left bemused for not getting a foul call he felt he had earned from the referee following a collision with Wagner.  A foul against 'Greek Freak' Antetokounmpo was called with around eight minutes remaining in the first half and while he is normally mild-mannered, both players exchanged words and then he lost his cool and took it out by headbutting Wagner.  Giannis is out of here pic.twitter.com/7QBvro0dfZ— DOT SMOKE #VERZUZ (@DDotOmen) August 12, 2020 Giannis Antetokounmpo (left) lost his cool as he came to...

    Rui Hachimura. Kim Klement/Pool Photo/AP Images The Washington Wizards have lost all four of their bubble games and are now 24-44 on the season. Their .353 win percentage actually puts them lower in the standings than the 23-34 Charlotte Hornets, who were not even invited to the bubble. The Wizards are without their top two scorers in the bubble, but many thought they were needlessly invited to resume the NBA season. Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. The Washington Wizards were given a chance to make a run at the playoffs in the NBA bubble, but it has not gone well so far. The Wizards are 0-4 in the bubble and have fallen to 24-44 on the...
    PHILADELPHIA (CBS)- The Philadelphia 76ers announced on Thursday that guard/forward Ben Simmons is currently listed as out after an MRI revealed a knee injury that the two sides are discussing treatment options for. “An initial examination and MRI have confirmed that Ben Simmons suffered a subluxation of the left patella (knee cap) in yesterday’s game against Washington,” said the Sixers in a statement. “He is listed as out, treatment options are currently being considered and further updates will be provided as appropriate.” Simmons suffered the injury in the third quarter of Wednesday afternoon’s game against the Washington Wizards. The Sixers went on to win 107-98 to improve their record to 2-1 inside the bubble. After putting up a strong outing...
    Coronavirus updates: A disproportionate number of non-white children are dying Golden State Warriors star Stephen Curry is now an equity partner in a beverage company The Hornets passed the Wizards in the standings without even being invited to the bubble The Washington Wizards’ inclusion in the NBA’s restart bubble always felt like a stretch. The Wizards were 24-40 overall when the league was shutdown over coronavirus concerns, sitting 5.5 games behind the No. 8 seed in the Eastern Conference at the time of the hiatus. That just narrowly fit within the guidelines for making the bubble, which invited any team that was less than six games behind the final playoff seed in their conference. To say Washington was going...
    Shabazz Napier, #5, Washington Wizards (Photo by Ashley Landis-Pool/Getty Images) The Washington Wizards have struggled in the bubble. The Eastern Conference’s playoff picture was much less chaotic than the West, which led to only nine teams from the East making it to the NBA bubble. While very few expected the Washington Wizards to challenge for the postseason, even less had to anticipate the dubious distinction Washington would earn for themselves after starting out so poorly. After a 107-98 loss against the Philadelphia 76ers, which dropped Washington’s record to 0-4 in the bubble, the Wizards officially fell below the Charlotte Hornets in the Eastern Conference standings. However, the Hornets were not invited to Orlando, meaning that they were eliminated before the...

    Regardless of the outcome of the 2019-20 NBA season, the Phoenix Suns are highly expected to find a way to make major upgrades on their roster this fall. Devin Booker may have already blossomed into an All-Star caliber player, but in order to become a legitimate threat in the Western Conference, the Suns obviously need more star power on their team. One of the players that the Suns could target on the market in the 2020 offseason is John Wall of the Washington Wizards. In a recent article, Andy Bailey of Bleacher Report created a list of offseason trade for every lottery team this fall. For the Suns, Bailey suggested that they may consider sending Ricky Rubio to the Wizards...

    Could Sunday’s game be a preview of the NBA’s first-ever “Play-In Series” when the Nets face the Wizards in Disney World? The way the makeshift Nets stunk up the Orlando bubble in their restart opener Friday, anything is possible now — even an 0-10 crash. The Nets, who fell behind by 30 points in the second half and lost to Orlando, 128-118, have their work cut out for them against the ninth-place Wizards. The Nets, after a garbage-time surge, fell to eighth place and lead Washington by 5½ games. If the Wizards close within four games of the Nets after this eight-game regular season, the two teams will battle in a quasi best-of-3 series for the right to make the...

    The Washington Wizards likely won't make the playoffs, but the NBA restart down in Orlando, Fla., will be a great opportunity for the younger players on the team to get some experience heading into next season. The Wizards will be without their top two scoring threats. Bradley Beal, who averaged 30.5 points, 6.1 assists, 4.2 assists, and 1.2 steals per game this season, will not participate due to a right shoulder injury, and Davis Bertans (15.4 PPG), an impending free agent, told the Wizards a month ago that he wouldn't participate when the league resumes due to the effects of the coronavirus pandemic.

    The Washington Wizards won’t have Bradley Beal, John Wall or Davis Bertans when the NBA returns amid the coronavirus pandemic — and so the assumption is they won’t have much chance of making the playoffs, either. And even if general manager Tommy Sheppard made clear back in September he was more interested in developing talent than counting victories this season, he wanted to make one thing perfectly clear as his team headed to the “bubble.” “Certainly, we’re going there to win games,” Sheppard said. “We’re going to try to make the playoffs. That’s 100% our goal.” When the league stopped play in March because of the COVID-19 outbreak, the Wizards were 24-40 and ninth in the Eastern Conference. That puts...
    On Friday, the Washington Wizards announced that the team had signed former Iowa standout and journeyman pro Jarrod Uthoff as a substitute player ahead of the NBA’s resumption of the 2019-20 season in Orlando, Florida on July 30. As reported by Wizards insider Ava Wallace via Twitter, Washington coach Scott Brooks declined to say which player Uthoff would be replacing. The 6-foot-9, 221-pound Uthoff has spent most of the current season with the Memphis Hustle, the G League affiliate club of the Memphis Grizzlies. Over 34 games with the club, all of which were starts, the 27-year-old averaged nearly 19 points and 11 rebounds per contest, as well 1.4 steals and 1.2 blocks in just under 35 minutes per game....
    Despite being stuck in mediocrity in the past years, the Washington Wizards still don’t have any plan to undergo a full-scale rebuild and want to run it back again the 2020-21 NBA season. However, if they are really serious about fully dominating the Eastern Conference and contending for the NBA championship title, the Wizards should highly prioritize surrounding the explosive backcourt duo of Bradley Beal and John Wall with additional star power this fall. One of the players that the Wizards could target on the trade market in the 2020 NBA offseason is Myles Turner of the Indiana Pacers. In a recent article, Grant Hughes of Bleacher Report created a list of desperation trades to get NBA’s worst 10 teams...
    Bradley Beal, #3, Washington Wizards, (Photo by Patrick Smith/Getty Images) The Washington Wizards star called out MLB for allowing one of their teams to be sold to “a billionaire with a long track record of shady dealings.” The New York Mets are one of the richest franchises in all of sports. As of this year, the baseball club located in Flushing, Queens has an estimated value of 2.4 billion US dollars. But Fred Wilpon believes it’s time to move on. It’s no secret that the team majority owner has been wanting to sell them for years. Wilpon, a Brooklyn native and real estate developer, is 83 years old and in his 40th year of front office management for the ball...
    Since the 2019 NBA offseason, rumors have been continuously swirling around All-Star shooting guard Bradley Beal and his future with the Washington Wizards. No matter how many times they insist that they have no intention of trading him and undergoing a full-scale rebuild, most people believe that Beal’s departure from Washington is inevitable. If the Wizards change their mind and finally decide to make Beal available on the trade market this fall, several NBA teams who are in dire need of additional star power to contend for the NBA championship next season are expected to express a strong interest in adding him to their roster, including the Denver Nuggets. In his recent article, Andy Bailey of Bleacher Report created a...

    As the resumption of the 2019-20 NBA season draws closer, rumors surrounding All-Star center DeMarcus Cousins and his nearing return to the court started to heat up. Cousins may have been waived by the Los Angeles Lakers after the 2020 February NBA trade deadline, but several NBA teams who are in dire need of a frontcourt boost have reportedly expressed interest in adding him to their 2020 NBA Playoffs roster, including the Washington Wizards. Cousins has been frequently linked to the Wizards mainly because it’s the team where his former Kentucky Wildcats’ teammate, John Wall, currently plays. Since entering the league in 2010, Cousins and Wall claimed that they both dreamt of playing together in one team. With Cousins currently...
    Bertans Announced He Will Not Play Orlando For Free Agency | Will Newton / . Latvian Davis Bertans became one of the first NBA players to announce that he will not participate in the resumption of the season in Orlando because he does not want to jeopardize the possibility of getting a good financial agreement in the next free agency. Given the announcement, the possibility that veteran DeMarcus Cousins ​​was chosen to fill that role at the Wizards was immediately rumored. The team made it clear that the 29-year-old was not being considered and just a few hours later Cousins ​​announced that he is not interested in participating in the remaining championship to be played at Disney World.
