Not beating the Wizards at home really places in question when the Bobcats will end this losing streak. Their upcoming trip includes the Lakers, Trail Blazers, Suns and Celtics. After that they play tough home games against the Bulls, Clippers and 76ers. The Bobcats have been particularly bad within the Southeast Division this season. They're now 0-7 against the other four teams in the division. PLAYER NOTES C Byron Mullens had his best game in a week versus the Wizards (23 points off 10-of-17 shooting) and coach Paul Silas believes Mullens is benefitting from coming off the bench. There's not the pressure of starting and Mullens now is playing against the opponent's backup center most of the time. C Gana Diop has never been a good foul shooter, but Saturday reset the bar: Diop missed a free throw by at least two feet, perhaps three, in the second half. F Boris Diaw's game has definitely perked up with him returning to the starting lineup. Silas needed Diaw's passing and shooting, and Diaw came through against the Wizards with 10 assists and 21 points. G Matt Carroll is getting an unexpected run, with Gerald Henderson out with a sore back. After scoring 17 points in Wednesday's start against the Wizards, Carroll followed that up with 13 vs. the Wizards Saturday. MEDICAL WATCH G D.J. Augustin (inflamed right big toe) might now miss all of an upcoming four-game road trip. G-F Reggie Williams (torn meniscus, left knee) could be activated for the first time this season when the Bobcats play in Phoenix Friday. F Corey Maggette (left hamstring strain) is 2-4 weeks away from a return. F D.J. White is out with a bruised knee and will likely miss most, if not all, of the West Coast trip. G Gerald Henderson missed Saturday's game with a sore back. He's listed as day-to-day. QUOTE TO NOTE "Corey Maggette said, 'Congratulations.' I said, 'For what?'" -- rookie Kemba Walker on not realizing he'd just assembled a triple-double.
