  • Scott Brooks
    Team, Washington Wizards

    Despite a 1-5 start and a league-worst defense, Scott Brooks still has the support of the Wizards organization.

    The dreaded vote of confidence? The likely excuse here is that the team has yet to play with their big free agent acquisition, Dwight Howard. As for the players who are there, it's been a mess. There's already been public complaints about the way some players look for their own stuff (from the players who might need to hear that most of all, ironically) and a few completely listless showings. Not to mention multiple fourth quarter meltdowns in winnable games. Our big gripe with Brooks is that he doesn't involve Otto Porter enough, but we're sure that will come to include "too much Jeff Green" in time. The Wizards might believe in Brooks for now but this team has too much talent to be scraping into the playoffs and getting crushed in round one. We'll see how they feel in a couple months.

  • Mike Scott
    PF/C, Washington Wizards

    Wizards coach Scott Brooks hinted at a potential lineup change ahead of Game 3 on Friday night.

    Brooks responded to a question about Mike Scott's role as the backup center by saying, "Who knows? [Scott] might be a starting five." This would come as a surprise as Marcin Gortat has started every game under Brooks the past two seasons. Brooks also commented on April 8 that he won't be changing the starting lineup. As the Wizards are sitting at two-games-to-none against the Raptors, a change of heart – and lineup – would not be shocking for coach Brooks.

  • John Wall
    PG, Washington Wizards

    John Wall is expected to see extended minutes Thursday night vs. Cleveland.

    Coach Scott Brooks mentioned he was going to try and play Wall extended minutes in Thursday's contest. In the two games Wall has played in since returning from knee surgery, he played 33 minutes in each. Wall is averaging 34.2 minutes per game this season so the comment by Brooks may just be reassurance that Wall will be playing his normal minutes. It does not make sense to push him past his usual right now. There is no word yet on if Wall will play Friday night – the second night of a back-to-back.

  • Otto Porter Jr.
    SF, Washington Wizards

    Otto Porter Jr. (bruised hip) is considered day-to-day.

    Porter went down late on Tuesday against the Heat and did not return. After the game, coach Scott Brooks told reporters that Porter is day-to-day and that they would check him at practice tomorrow. This is great news for OPJ owners, as the Wizards don’t play again until Friday. Still, Porter has a history of hip injuries in the past and it is something to watch for moving forward.
