The Washington Wizards have fallen apart, going 2-8 in their last ten and losing their three most recent games. This has pushed the Wizards to being two games behind New Orleans for the third worst spot in the NBA. The Wizards are still four ahead of last-place Charlotte.

Nene has missed the last three games for the Wizards. Nene has plantar fasciitis, thus making this a problem because he is fourth for the team with 13.7 points per game this year and third among those who are actually active on the Wizards.

Jordan Crawford has expanded his role with the Wizards, getting 28 points this past Wednesday against Indiana and 23 on Monday against Milwaukee.
