Injuries and a stacked forward rotation prohibited Yi Jianlian from having much impact in his one season with the Wizards.
But it all seemed to click for Yi on one night in Dallas, when he came off the bench to score a season-high 14 points, match his season-high with 11 rebounds and notch a career-high four steals in a 102-92 loss.
