Bucher: Thanks to big men, Wiz are trending up

Csnwashington.com. Joining me now is NBA insider -- do you correct December's been a tough month for the Wizards their 213 with theirs well where you -- the most improvement. If this number was a tough month what was November. See things turning up and the reason I see them turning up. Is is largely because the play and their big men Kevin Seraphin. Has just grown a week by week and then -- is back from injury and he's given them something so. That depth on the front line along with Jordan Crawford. Demonstrating that he can score and shoot. -- just about anybody at this point. That combination has been just enough to turn the tide didn't mind would even go through November they were in games until the last six minutes or so. Crawford and his scoring and the ability to get some things around the rim from the big men that has allowed them. It's actually closed some games. We did they were losing previously. Well they are still waiting for the return of John Wall on Friday he's gonna see doctor David I'll check in New York he could be cleared or could be cleared to practice. And be ready to play. I would be very surprised if that happens my sources tell me that. Best is the best case scenario is that he starts the beginning of that 2013. Year calendar year. And that they just move forward their concern is that while he's able to do some things right now. That he has sort of the same condition that Blake Griffin had this summer before he came out and then. Fractured his kneecap and had to miss an entire year so it's not as if he's that far away. But because he means so much to them. That would be very cautious in bringing him back to wanna make sure that all the pain is gone before he plays again and that's simply not the case yet. What effects from the Wizards are the Lakers and who would've thought these guys would have been struggling with that lineup do you think this is a game. That's the Wizards might be able this deal at home in front of their crowd. They very well could because the Lakers right now. Without Steve Nash without power Gasol and without Mike. The basically practice witnessed since he's taken over they have not had. More than one day between games and a lot of road games so. Give me Wizards come with the same mindset that they did. Against the Miami Heat where they realize we may be the lesser talented teams that we have to do everything. Synchronize -- together and give maximum effort they're certainly capable of knocking off this wounded Lakers team at this time all right Rick thank you very much for your time. You're welcome.
