AROUND THE WEB
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.”

CLIMB THE WALL
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...
Washington Wizards forwad Jan Vesely participated in three-on-three drills at the end of practice on Thursday, and the No. 6 overall pick said he’s getting close to making his debut as he heals from a hip ailment that has plagued him since the last day of training camp.
Vesely dressed for but did not play in Wednesday night’s 103-85 loss to Orlando that dropped the Wizards...
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...
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...
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 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…
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.
BOSTON (AP) -- Washington Wizards coach Flip Saunders was ejected 1:46 into Monday night's game against the Boston Celtics.
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...
The Wizards were in trouble from the start. Orlando Magic all-star center Dwight Howard won the opening tip to Hedo Turkoglu and Nick Young let Jason Richardson get by him for an easy layup. Young quickly tried to strike back, but missed a running shot and horrific display of bad defense and even worse offense had just begun.

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...
The Washington Wizards are the only winless team remaining in the NBA and are on the verge of the worst start in franchise history.
