The Wizards return to individual workouts Wednesday, led by Duke center-forward Mason Plumlee, who interviewed with them at last month's pre-draft combine.

It'll be the Wizards' first chance to see him do drills with the ball, something he declined to do previously.

Plumlee averaged 17.1 points per game, 9.9 rebounds, 1.4 blocks and shot 60% from the field. Despite being a shade under 7-0, Plumlee is more likely to play at power forward in the NBA.

Plumlee is the only player of the six coming in Wednesday who was invited by the league to the combine in Chicago:

Karron Johnson (Shaw): A 6-7 forward who originally was to play at Oklahoma State, averaged 17.4 points, 8 rebounds, 2.7 assists, shot 61.4% from the field, including 33.3% from three-point range. He's considered by some to be the best Division II prospect for the NBA. 

Bruce Massey (Middle Tennessee): A 6-3 guard, he averaged just 6.6 points and 3.3 assists, 42.4% shooting. He's not there for offense. He's a defensive stopper who was named the Sun Belt Conference's defensive player of the year. 

Brock Motum (Washington State): A 6-8 forward, averaged 18.7 points, 6.3 rebounds and shot 45.6%. Not impressive with his physical skills but can score. The lefty had been a role player for the Cougars, averaging less than 8 points.

Dexter Strickland (North Carolina): A 6-3 guard, averaged 7.8 points, 4.2 assists and 43.2% shooting. Has a 6-9 wingspan helps in defensively as he jumps passing lanes and can be solid in one-on-one situations.

Kellen Thornton (Tennessee State): A 6-7 forward, he spent his first two seasons at Illinois State and averaged 15.6 points, 8.2 rebounds and 52% shooting as a senior. He has an effective face-up game, runs the floor well and can finish.
