It’s been a rough year for Washington Wizards forward Andray Blatche. He missed more than a month with a calf injury, his numbers are down, he’s lost the respect of the hometown fans and now his coach is sitting him until he gets back into shape.
The Wizards tried unsuccessfully to move Blatche before the trade deadline but not surprisingly, no one wanted him. In the 9 games...

Despite being sent from a playoff contender to one of the worst teams in the league, Nene is excited about providing the Washington Wizards with a boost.
The New Jersey Nets, meanwhile, continue to falter despite making a major acquisition last week as well.
Nene is expected to make his Wizards debut as visiting Washington and New Jersey both try to avoid a sixth defeat in seven...
