A back injury to Marcin Gortat could keep him out of Friday's game, too, but the Wizards can't use his absence as an excuse for losing to a team such as the Lakers.
Without center Marcin Gortat, the Wizards lost ground in the playoff race with a 116-103 loss in Portland.
Los Angeles Lakers guard Steve Nash hasn't played since Feb. 11 due to injuries. Barring a setback, the two-time MVP will return Friday night against the Wizards according to a report.
