Chris Singleton started 51 games last season at small forward for the Wizards, but the second-year pro doesn't look like he's going to be back in the starting lineup anytime soon and might be seeing a lot more time on the bench this season. Singleton saw just 18 seconds in the loss to Boston Saturday night. Singleton not only lost his starting job to veteran Trevor Ariza but the backup spot as well to Martell Webster.
With Ariza (scoreless) struggling against the Celtics, Wittman turned to Webster who didn't fare much better, getting only 4 points on 1-6 shooting. Singleton came in only to play the final seconds of the first half.
Singleton played 17 minutes in the opener at Cleveland and scored 4 points and had 4 rebounds and saw action in crunch time, but for whatever reason he barely saw the floor against the Celtics. Wizards coach Randy Wittman has stressed that his players will earn their minutes and right now it looks like Singleton is the odd man out.
