It's impossible to not look at the big picture with 22 games left in the season for the Wizards. They're in the tenuous No. 5 spot in the East with the Chicago Bulls (33-27) slightly ahead at No.
Age isn't the issue for Andre Miller, Al Harrington and Drew Gooden as much as inactivity, and it's evident. None of them has the legs to hit shots beyond the paint.
The size of the Memphis Grizzlies, difficult to deal with for the Wizards even when at full strength, is too much to overcome when depleted.
The Wizards grew even thinner with the loss of Martell Webster, who didn't play in Monday's game vs. the Memphis Grizzlies because of a sore back.
