Washington Wizards basketball is almost back. After a wild month for the team capped off by the NBA All-Star game, Bradley Beal and the Wizards get back to action Friday night against the Charlotte Hornets.
Before the second half of the season starts, get up-to-date on what's been happening around the league in the latest episode of the Wizards Talk podcast.
Chris Miller sat down with Beal moments after his All-Star Game performance to chat about the weekend, how he probably did travel in their game against the Pistons and his efforts to recruit big name players to D.C..
Then Yahoo Sports' Michael Lee sits down to talk the possible repercussions of Anthony Davis not being traded, the impact of John Wall's Achilles injury and how the Wizards can move forward.
Finally, NBA TV's Dennis Scott got candid about the Wizards' playoff chances with 24 games left to go and a ton of turnover on their roster.
"Oh, it's going to be a tough fight," Scott said on their playoff chances. "I would like for them to because when you're trying to retool your team and now Otto [Porter's] gone, you've brought in two young guys. Bobby Portis, oh my goodness. I know you like what you've seen from him so far and hopefully Jabari [Parker's] knees can hold up. That thing still has some [gas] left in the tank.
So, can those young guys give you enough firepower to? Maybe. Maybe."
