DETROIT: GUARDS: RODNEY STUCKEY was hampered by nagging injuries a year ago. If he's healthy, he's the best offensive weapon they have . . . BRANDON KNIGHT is more of a combo guard running the point. He can shoot, but doesn't bring much else to the table . . . With Ben Gordon gone, WILL BYNUM has a chance to regain a significant role . . . The Pistons' two second-round picks have a chance to carve out big roles. KIM ENGLISH has a skill set similar to Gordon's, capable of heating up and scoring in bunches . . . KHRIS MIDDLETON is more of a spot-up, catch-and-shoot threat only . . . Former No. 6 overall pick JONNY FLYNN agreed to a non-guaranteed contract in October, as he is no guarantee to even make this sorry roster. FORWARDS: TAYSHAUN PRINCE is still hanging on as the Pistons' best all-around player . . . JASON MAXIELL should be able to reclaim his starting spot early. He rebounds and takes up space . . . JONAS JEREBKO showed flashes but looked rusty in his first year back from an Achilles injury . . . 2011 2nd-rounder KYLE SINGLER has a good chance to step into the rotation after a solid year in Spain . . . COREY MAGGETTE was acquired in a Ben Gordon salary dump. He'll see limited minutes . . . AUSTIN DAYE regressed big-time last year. Unless he gets off to a hot start, he'll be on the outside looking in at the rotation . . . TERRENCE WILLIAMS is seeking a new lease on life, but could be too much of a head case to realize he's wasting his talent . . . The Pistons are counting down the days left on CHARLIE VILLANUEVA's contract (two years). CENTERS: GREG MONROE is a solid fit in Frank's system. He's not a great athlete, but he can score and move the ball on offense, as well as rebound . . . ANDRE DRUMMOND could one day be a perfect fit alongside Monroe. But for now, he'll watch and learn as a raw, boom-or-bust prospect . . . VIACHESLAV KRAVTSOV is an athletic big who will bring energy, but little offense in limited minutes.
WASHINGTON: GUARDS: JOHN WALL hasn't developed much diversity in his offensive game, but he's still really fast and an effective distributor. The improved supporting cast should help him reach the next level, assuming he feels no ill effects from the stress injury in his left knee that will keep him out until late November . . . BRADLEY BEAL is a great shooter, but he can also score off the dribble. Throw in his rebounding ability from the backcourt, and he should contribute in a number of ways as a rookie . . . JORDAN CRAWFORD is a pure scorer, but not an efficient one. He won't be able to hold off Beal for long, if at all . . . A.J. PRICE steps in as Wall's top backup. He'll play limited minutes with the second unit . . . SHELVIN MACK will be battling for a roster spot, most likely with underachieving swingman MARTELL WEBSTER. FORWARDS: TREVOR ARIZA should have no trouble stepping into the starting lineup. He'll at least have a chance to re-find his three-point shot getting drive-and-dish feeds from Wall . . . Nene^ will slide to the four with Emeka Okafor coming in. That means athletic, but raw, JAN VESELY will have to play with the second unit. He can really run the floor, but doesn't help much in the half-court game . . . TREVOR BOOKER is a very good screener on offense who holds his own defensively and on the boards. He still has a chance for a handful of starts if Nene^ or Okafor get hurt . . . CHRIS SINGLETON started a lot of games last year, but the defensive specialist will likely spend this season learning behind Ariza . . . CARTIER MARTIN never saw a shot he didn't like. CENTERS: NENE^ had some trouble with plantar fasciitis last year and playing in the Olympics didn't help. If healthy, he has a chance to be Washington's leading scorer . . . EMEKA OKAFOR will start alongside Nene^. He's the fifth-best option on offense, but holds his own defensively . . . KEVIN SERAPHIN has proven he can hold down a starting job. He'll come off the bench but should still have a significant role.

*Pistons-Wizards Preview* =========================


Detroit (22-37) at Washington (18-37), 7:00 p.m. EDT

Although the Washington Wizards have been at their best over the last three weeks, the Detroit Pistons always seem to bring out their worst.

Seeking its second four-game winning streak this month, Washington looks to avenge a loss in Detroit two weeks ago and avoid a 14th defeat in 16 meetings to the visiting Pistons in Wednesday night's season series finale.

The Wizards (18-37) have won seven of nine, including a season-high four straight Feb. 4-11. That run, however, came to an end with a 96-85 loss at Detroit on Feb. 13, Washington's fifth consecutive defeat in the series. The Wizards have been outscored by an average of 11.8 points during that skid.

Washington could be feeling good about snapping those woes in the nation's capital, where it's won 10 of 12 while averaging 101.1 points - 9.1 more than its season mark.

After posting home wins over Denver and Houston, the Wizards pulled out a 90-84 victory at Toronto on Monday. Rookie Bradley Beal scored 20 points to lead five players in double figures for Washington, which outrebounded the Raptors 49-39 and held them to 36.7 percent shooting.

The Wizards have limited opponents to 93.6 points per game and 41.9 percent from the field during their 7-2 stretch.

"These are the kinds of things that we've talked about since we've been heading in the direction we're going," said coach Randy Wittman, whose team has won 14 of 23. "You're not always going to have an offensive game where you're clicking or you're playing as well as you want, and you have to find a way to win those games. We, with our defense, have done that. ... Our defense gives us a chance."

While Washington continues to focus on slowing down its opponents, Beal has provided a huge boost offensively. The No. 3 overall pick in the 2012 draft is averaging 20.2 points on 49.4 percent shooting over the last six games, going 13 for 26 from 3-point range.

"I feel a lot more comfortable and I have a lot more confidence as well," Beal said. "It's a learning process for me and it's been like that the whole year. Now the game is slowing down for me, so I'm making easier reads. I'm starting to learn how teams are playing me and I'm just playing off of that."

The Wizards have won nine of their last 11 when Beal has at least 15 points. He scored 10 on 5-of-13 shooting at Detroit on Feb. 13.

"He's been playing great basketball over the last two weeks," swingman Martell Webster said. "The kid is balling. He has a great rhythm, let's hope he keeps riding it."

The Pistons (22-37) are coming off their third straight loss, 114-103 to Atlanta on Monday. Detroit held a 66-26 edge in the paint but allowed 14 3s on 33 attempts and 23 points off 17 turnovers.

"That's not the formula to win basketball games," coach Lawrence Frank said. "We obviously had a high number of turnovers. Especially when you're a little bit shorthanded, everyone has to put a little bit more into the game."

Continuing to play without rookie big man Andre Drummond (back), Detroit was also missing Brandon Knight for the third consecutive contest due to a hyperextended right knee and fellow guard Will Bynum due to a one-game suspension for striking Indiana's Tyler Hansbrough on Saturday.

Bynum is expected to return Wednesday, but Knight's status is uncertain. Bynum had 20 points and eight assists off the bench against Washington earlier this month.

Recently acquired Jose Calderon scored a season-high 24 that night while Greg Monroe added 16 and a season best-tying 18 boards.
