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...
The Washington Wizards own the worst record in the NBA and the Detroit Pistons aren't too far behind.
That's not about to change any time soon, but a home-and-home set could provide some relief for one team.
