Wizards coach Scott Brooks has the players to make up for the injuries that forced them to pull out of this week’s preseason.
Brooks had the players on the floor at one point during Tuesday’s practice, but the team was already set up for a stretch of four games that featured three games in seven days, including a stretch that stretched through the weekend.
Brooks said the players are all healthy and will play, and the rest of the team will take care of business.
He said that all of the injuries were related to a stretch in the preseason that was supposed to be a break from injuries.
The Wizards are on the road this weekend against the New Orleans Pelicans, the Los Angeles Lakers, the Chicago Bulls and the San Antonio Spurs.
The last three games of the regular season are at home against the Cleveland Cavaliers, the Orlando Magic and the Minnesota Timberwolves.
All of those games are at Washington.
Brooks also mentioned the importance of playing at a high level in the coming weeks, because of the uncertainty of whether the playoffs will start this weekend.
He has been pleased with the way the players have responded, and he is hoping that they will be able to come back in November and continue to play well and get a little bit more of the experience and make the playoffs, which would be a big thing for us to get back to a winning culture.
