As the last week unwound, it was a common occurrence for fans to see Wizards players strewn left and right, unable to move from sheer exhaustion. With nearly every forward getting injured, Washington started working with an incredibly limiting bench. “It’s tough because we have Book and Nene, who’ve both got more than 10 point per game average,” Kevin Seraphin said. “So that’s difficult to lose those guys just to play right now.

His first two games of the contract, he stole playing time, scoring 10 points against Indiana and 20 in a win over Philadelphia.

Seraphin Steps Up With Starters Out
