There's some shifting going on in the Eastern Conference, and when the Wizards face the Chicago Bulls on Monday at United Center they'll look different.
At the turn of the new year it seemed inevitable the Wizards would go on a run and get above the .500 mark. Now a week later, it will be a struggle to get back after three straight losses.
The one bright spot for the Wizards in this three-game losing streak is Al Harrington, who was getting up shots well after practice ended Monday at Verizon Center.
There's something not quite right with Wizards center Marcin Gortat, who wasn't available for the second game in a row following a lackluster performance in another home defeat.
The NBA is a special league with extremely talented players.
