Wizards use imitator for sick Trevor Ariza in team photo

What do you do when your 6-foot-8 small forward is sick while you’re taking your team photo?

You bring in the 6-foot-6 man working for the WNBA team that shares the same building.

With Trevor Ariza battling the flu, the Washington Wizards slapped a No. 1 jersey on Washington Mystics Player Personnel Manager Awvee Storey (who played for the Wizards eight years ago) and put him in the photo (hat tip: Ben Standig of CSN Washington).

I’m genuinely interested to see the degree to which the Wizards Photoshop the picture. Are they just going to put Ariza’s head on Storey’s body? Something more complex?
