John Wall's Development Already In Put In Jeopardy By Wizards' Disfunction

John Wall is not yet a "floor general." He's not quite a "facilitator," although he's closing in on becoming the Washington Wizards' "engine." It remains to be seen what sort of metaphor develops to describe the second-year guard out of Kentucky, who visits the Garden on Sunday to face the Celtics.

Wizards’ Jordan Crawford returns to Atlanta a starter

Jordan Crawford is returning to Atlanta in a much different — and better position — than he left.

But when the Wizards face the Hawks on Wednesday, Jordan Crawford is a starting...

Kirk Hinrich gone but presence with Wizards still felt

The Wizards avoided facing Kirk Hinrich when they got trounced by 18 points on Wednesday in Atlanta, but that didn’t necessarily mean that his presence wasn’t felt.
