The Wizards had a chance to establish the best start in franchise history by surpassing the 1974-75 team, but the Suns ended their six-game winning streak Sunday.
What Jimmy Butler does on both ends of the floor has earned the respect of Paul Pierce, who had a run-in with the Bulls' guard in the preseason.
Comments from coach Randy Wittman on Sunday brings into question whether the Wizards considered either Alex Len or any big man with the third pick in the 2013 Draft.

Paul Pierce - F
Paul Pierce (left toe) missed practice on Monday, but will play Tuesday. While he did miss Tuesday of last week with the toe issue, it's not a major concern right now. Pierce should have a similar role on Tuesday, but could lose a few minutes of...

Martell Webster - G/F
Martell Webster (back) almost went through a full practice on Monday, but will not play on... It sounds like he has a chance to play in 2014. Otto Porter Jr. was a mild disappointment to start the year, so Webster should be on the radar for owners need 3-pointers....
Dec 22 2:50PM Read More
Marcin Gortat - C
Marcin Gortat played just 20 minutes in a loss to the Suns on Sunday, finishing with nine... He deserves a pass here and the Wizards just decided to go with the hot hand in Kevin Seraphin off of the bench. Gortat has been a double-double machine for the Wizards this...

Kevin Seraphin - F/C
Kevin Seraphin was terrific off the Wizards' bench on Sunday, finishing with 16 points, five... He got some extra run with Marcin Gortat struggling on the night, but this game was more than likely a fluke. Seraphin only gets around 15 minutes per game, so he would need...

John Wall - G
John Wall struggled in a loss against the Suns on Sunday, shooting just 5-of-15 from the field... The fact that he was struggling in this game and still managed to put up these kinds of numbers speaks volumes about how well he has played recently. Wall is spoiling his...

Paul Pierce - F
Paul Pierce shot just 4-of-13 from the field in a loss to the Suns on Sunday, finishing with 12... He had a rough outing on Sunday as he simply couldn't get anything going. Regardless, Pierce looks like he is over his toe injury that he suffered last week, and he will...
Dec 21 9:12PM Read More
Martell Webster - G/F
Martell Webster (back) will not play Sunday vs. the Suns. Webster is nearing a return, but Sunday will not be the day. We'll consider him questionable for Tuesday's game vs. Chicago, but with Paul Pierce and Bradley Beal healthy,...
Dec 21 4:40PM Read More
Martell Webster - G/F
Martell Webster (back) could return to action as soon as Sunday against the Suns. He has yet to play this season after coming off of his third back surgery in his career, so it will be great to see back out on the floor. He was seen getting up shots at...
Dec 21 9:51AM Read More
Martell Webster - G/F
Martell Webster (back) is on schedule to return to action this month. He is going to have a minutes limit when he is able to play. Webster is a tremendous fit for the Wizards and he flourished last season while Bradley Beal was out. He'll have...

Kris Humphries - F/C
Kris Humphries saw just 13 minutes in Friday's win over the Heat, scoring four points on 2-of-7... Nene played 26 minutes off the bench and scored 20 points on 8-of-10 shooting, so perhaps he's healthy and ready to knock Humphries to the wire. With little upside to speak...
Dec 20 1:32AM Read More
Paul Pierce - F
Paul Pierce (toe) returned to action in Friday's win, scoring 14 points on 6-of-13 shooting... Pierce has been a top 80-90 play this season and he should be in most lineups when healthy.
Dec 20 1:30AM Read More
Marcin Gortat - C
Marcin Gortat scored just four points on 2-of-5 shooting with seven rebounds, one steal and one... Gortat should have done more against a depleted Heat squad, but he's been a relatively stable mid-round play this season. Keep him in lineups.
Dec 20 1:29AM Read More
Nene Hilario - F/C
Nene hit 8-of-10 shots for 20 points, six rebounds, two assists and one steal in 26 minutes on... Kris Humphries played just 13 minutes and perhaps Nene is ready to take the lion's share of minutes back at power forward. He has health issues and hasn't been great this...
Dec 20 1:05AM Read More
Rasual Butler - G/F
Rasual Butler did not hit a three on Friday, finishing with eight points on 3-of-7 shooting... The minutes are a good sign with Paul Pierce logging 32 minutes, and on the season he has been a late-round value, but he's shooting way over his head and the regression...
Dec 20 1:03AM Read More
Paul Pierce - F
Paul Pierce (sore right toe) will start Friday vs. the Heat. Otto Porter will head back to the bench, so those that made a speculative add of Porter can go ahead and send him back to the waiver wire. Pierce has a favorable matchup...
