The Wizards will rely heavily on reserves in these last two preseason games because the bench is thin and coach Randy Wittman still has to figure out his rotations.
The Wizards probably will start Otto Porter at small forward in Monday's exhibition vs. the Pelicans while they try to get healthy in time for the regular season.
Kris Humphries is on the right path to returning to the Wizards from his hand injury that required surgery and they are encouraged by his progress.
