Roger Mason was able to play only a few minutes against the Bucks on Friday before being pulled from the game. His limited role wasn’t the result of injury or not being up to speed with the Wizards’ offense, however. Mason was ejected from the game because a paperwork glitch resulted in his name not appearing on the team’s 15-man roster, and thus he was not eligible to play. It was a human mistake,” a frustrated Mason said after the game according to the Washington Post. “It happens.” Mason’s name did not appear on the official team roster that was submitted from the league office prior to the game. Neither Wizards coach Flip Saunders nor Washington’s public relations staff identified the error, and the roster was signed off on and made official. Despite rumors, NBA spokesman Tim Frank denied a report that the NBA has been installing a new data system and Mason was still listed as a member of the Knicks. The most entertaining moment of the unusual situation came when Mason hit a tur...

Jan Vesely feeling ‘better,’ hopes to return soon

Jan Vesely was on the court at TD Garden on Monday in a T-shirt and shorts, doing some non-contact drills and leg exercises with resistance bands as head athletic trainer Eric Waters monitored him. As he walked off the court, signing autographs for fans before heading to the locker room, Vesely said he feels “better.” Read full article >>

Roger Mason Jr. was ejected from a game because of a … ‘technical glitch?’

You may have missed it last Friday night, after all it was a game between the Milwaukee Bucks and the Washington Wizards and you do have your dignity to think of, but Wizards guard Roger Mason Jr.'s ejection from that Wizards loss came because of a very strange infraction. He was kicked out, apparently, for playing basketball. Oh, the humanity. And all the people. A "technical...

Video: John Wall dunks on 6'11 center

Greg Stiemsma a 6’11 undrafted free agent had his first career start for the Boston Celtics tonight. I’d have to say thanks to John Wall of the Washington Wizards it was a memorable one but for the wrong reason. Wall had a highlight reel dunk on/over him. Now in all honesty, Stiemsma did have a good first start. He scored 13 points with seven rebounds and two blocks over 21...

John Wall Devastates Greg Stiemsma, JaVale McGee Screams Quite Loudly

For a little guy, Washington Wizards' John Wall sure can bring down the house with some outstanding dunks. Case in point - Washington's visit to Boston to face the Celtics where Wall threw one down on Boston's big man Greg Stiemsma. And if you are like me and thought, " Who in the heck is this Greg dude?," well this will sure make you remember him going forward...

Appreciating Rashard Lewis In His Return

Last year when the Wizards visited Orlando for the second time, Rashard Lewis was in unfamiliar surroundings. Lewis was locked out of the Magic locker. This was on purpose of course because Lewis was traded to Washington in December. He was no longer a member of the Magic, after putting the team over the top and helping lead the team to three straight Southeast Division championships...

John Wall, Wizards show improvement in loss to Celtics

Washington Wizards guard John Wall had his best game of the season — 19 points on 6 of 13 shooting and perhaps best of all: eight assists to one turnover. Wall's progress is a good sign, but the end result for the Wizards was the same as the first three, ...

Wall Gets a Technical for Looking

The Wizards racked up technical fouls Monday night, including a pair that had coach Flip Saunders tossed from the game in the first quarter. But it was a technical called on John Wall that had us shaking our heads. Wall drove hard, dunked on Celtics center Greg Stiemsma and gave him a “who’s your daddy” stare down. The ref, apparently offended by the glare, whistled Wall...

John Wall’s growth stunted by lack of veterans around him

John Wall was everybody’s pick to have a breakout season, so much so that during preseason prediction season it felt like you had to choose someone else and not take the obvious route. So far the Wizards are 0-4 and Wall has been pedestrian. He’s only shooting 32 percent on the year — not only…

Comments From the Other Side - Wizards 1/2

 During the last game, there were a lot of good comments about Rondo.  This game, they are loving on Ray.  However, KG gets the same hate in both threads. There's also a lot of complaints about the refs in both threads.   Some things never change.  I love how fans always ask who left Ray Allen open.  No one leaves Ray Allen open.   They just get tired from chasing him...

Open thread, Game 6: Wizards at Magic

The Wizards (0-5) are one loss away from their worst start in franchise history and will have a difficult challenge in avoiding the ignominious start as they face the Orlando Magic. Orlando has won 14 of the past 17 meetings, including the past two games at Amway Center. JaVale McGee has combined for 33 points, 28 rebounds and eight blocked shots in his past two games against Boston...

Wizards' Saunders tossed 1:46 into game vs. C's

BOSTON (AP) -- Washington Wizards coach Flip Saunders was ejected 1:46 into Monday night's game against the Boston Celtics.

Wizards-Magic Preview

The Washington Wizards are on the verge of the worst start in franchise history. A visit to Orlando wouldn't appear to be a good way to avoid that dubious feat. They've rarely won there and have been blown out in the last three visits, plus the Magic are perfect at home this season heading into Wednesday night's meeting. Washington, which has never opened a season with...
