The Wizards have lost the first two of a three-game stretch at home before going back on the road. Sunday's game is a must-win but it'll have to be done with defense.
Marcin Gortat's play has been so uneven of late, and he knows it, that he was nowhere to be found after Friday's home loss to the Toronto Raptors.
Losing five of six games is never good, but that's the Wizards' mark at Verizon Center for the last month.
Al Harrington, who had surgery to clean out his right knee early last month, is back with the Wizards but has yet to practice and there's still no timetable on a return.
