Shabazz Napier (right ankle sprain) will sit out Sunday's game with the Thunder.
Napier was deemed probable yesterday, and this could be a case of Washington taking it easy since they've been eliminated from playoff contention. Ish Smith will continue to start with Jerian Grant moving into the backup PG role. Troy Brown may take on some extra playmaking work as well, though he's already the best fantasy play of this bunch. Napier's injury doesn't seem to be serious but this could be a shutdown situation, so a drop may be in order in resumption leagues. Hopefully the Wizards have a positive update tomorrow.
