The Wizards could use the physical defense of Nene for Saturday's home game at the New Orleans Pelicans.
The Hornets have beaten the Wizards in seven of their last eight meetings in the regular season, and despite adding Lance Stephenson they're off to a 4-12 start.
A team that thrives in the open court, the Wizards have combined to get just two points in transition of their last two games and 39 turnovers.

Nene Hilario - F/C
Nene (foot) will not play against the Cavs on Wednesday night. This will be his second game out of the lineup due to plantar fasciitis. He has dealt with this issue before, so he's most likely going to miss time. Kris Humphries is an...

Bradley Beal - G
Bradley Beal made just 4-of-14 shots off Washington's bench in Tuesday's tough loss, scoring 13... It seems like only a matter of time before Garrett Temple is benched and Beal starts alongside John Wall, so Beal's owners should remain patient. The self-proclaimed best...
