Washington Wizards: 33-1

Nobody will be more happy to find that the preseason end than the Washington Wizards; when it had gone on any longer, they would have run out of bodies entirely.
Together with Martell Webster already on the shelf following his third back surgery in four seasons, the injuries just kept coming.
Bradley Beal fractured his wrist, Glen Rice Jr. rolled his ankle, Kris Humphries ripped open his arm on the rim (because when are those things sharp?) , requiring surgery to mend the gash. Even John Wall was limited with knee tendinitis.
Somehow, the Wizards’ oldest player managed to survive the exhibition record unscathed. Paul Pierce, set to start at small forward for the Wiz, offered some veteran outlook on the parade to the coach’s table, per Jorge Castillo of The Washington Post:”It’s been tough. It’s been hard. We have not had a complete squad most of the preseason. The key is understanding it’s a very long season. The crucial thing is to become healthy.”
When the collective swelling recedes and all the stitches hold, Washington can still make good on the lofty expectations it set last season. Forty-four wins got people thinking in D.C., and now the Wizards confront a world in which anything less than a top-four seed will constitute a disappointment.
