The Wizards confirmed shortly before tip-off that Marcin Gortat will start tonight against the Lakers after missing Thursday's game with a lower back injury.
Eric Maynor's stay with the Wizards lasted four months until he was traded Feb. 20 to the Philadelphia 76ers. There, he was gone after eight games.
Marcin Gortat's presence for Friday's game shouldn't matter.
To begin this four-game road trip, John Wall said it would be the defining stretch of the season for the Wizards, who entered it four games over .500.
