The Wizards have tanked this season with their star player on the shelf with an injury to his patella in his left knee.
The injury was supposed to keep him out temporarily. It was supposed to be a month on the shelf. A set back to the season, but not a disaster.
Well, Wall is still not back. He is still not playing. And the Wizards are facing a disaster at 3-20 and the worst record in the league.

You just hope it heals the right way, and I think I've been doing the right things I'm supposed to do: just rest, do my exercises, try to stay in shape as best as possible with...

A quarter of the way through the 2012-2013 NBA season, the 3-20 Washington Wizards have the worst record in the league. The team has struggled to find consistency and seems to have on suffered setbacks in every way imaginable. Notably, injuries have derailed the Wizards roster and projected lineups.

Nene is on a minutes limit for the Washington Wizards.
The Wizards are in desperate need of a point guard until John Wall comes back and are willing to move one of their bigs for a veteran point, league sources say. But will there be much interest in the likes of Trevor Booker (who hasn’t played in three weeks since suffering a knee injury)? With the worst record in the league at the quarter pole, Washington is not at all interested...
The Washington Wizards own the worst record in the NBA and the Detroit Pistons aren't too far behind.
