The Washington Wizards will soon get updates of the progress of both rookie Otto Porter Jr. and Chris Singleton when the two injured forwards visit with team doctors upon their return to Washington.

I just got to rest and take time to heal.” Walking off the practice court while carrying a few of his teammates’ shoes to the lo...

The Wizards want to be an uptempo team with John Wall's penetration creating open perimeter looks for their shooters. The Wizards are shooting just 27.8 percent from three and are averaging 21...

Martell Webster says he’s willing to sacrifice for a playoff berth

In pursuit of his favorite spot on the court — in the corner behind the three-point line — Washington Wizards forward Martell Webster stepped on the foot of New Orleans Pelicans forward Al-Farouq Aminu and came up limping in the second quarter of the Wizards’ 93-89 loss on Saturday in Lexington Ky.
