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.
MINNESOTA: GUARDS: RICKY RUBIO could be back by late December, but even he's not confident his knee will be 100 percent. His minutes might have to be scaled back . . . LUKE RIDNOUR will handle the offense with Rubio hampered. The vet is a steady hand in coach Rick Adelman's Euro-style offense . . . They're counting on BRANDON ROY to reclaim his old form after a radical knee procedure. He may never be 100 percent, but he should at least give them sixth-man minutes . . . CHASE BUDINGER is a three-point marksman who moves well off the ball, a perfect fit in Adelman's system . . . J.J. BAREA will take some of the point guard burden as well. He's a top sixth man . . . ALEXEY SHVED can help as a combo guard, though he might have trouble breaking into this rotation . . . MALCOLM LEE is a defensive stopper who won't be asked to shoot very often. FORWARDS: Despite being limited athletically, KEVIN LOVE is an elite rebounder and shooter for a big. He'll continue to be the focal point of this offense once he returns from a broken hand in early December . . . ANDREI KIRILENKO returns to the States after a dominating Euroleague stint. He's a big upgrade at the three and should be comfortable in Adelman's system . . . DERRICK WILLIAMS will continue his attempted transition to the three. As last year proved, he's a long, long ways away. He might have to play himself into a rotation spot . . . DANTE CUNNINGHAM is a nice, efficient big to bring off the bench . . . Since they need shooting on the wings, rookie ROBBIE HUMMEL has a chance to crack the rotation. CENTERS: NIKOLA PEKOVIC is a beast, the best offensive rebounder in the NBA. His total rebounding numbers get hurt playing alongside Kevin Love, but Pekovic will continue to bully his way to put-backs . . . GREG STIEMSMA is going to come in and do some pushing and shoving (and occasional shot-blocking) for 12-to-15 MPG.

*Wizards-Timberwolves Preview* ==============================


Washington (19-39) at Minnesota (20-37), 8:00 p.m. EDT

Even if rookie Bradley Beal is healthy enough to go, John Wall should have the confidence to take charge for the Washington Wizards.

The injury-plagued Minnesota Timberwolves need someone to step up.

Washington will try to win a season-best second straight on the road Wednesday night when the Timberwolves look to avoid their seventh consecutive loss.

Wall struggled in the first six games following the All-Star break \2013 averaging 11.2 points on 32.4 percent shooting with 4.7 turnovers \2013 but he hit 7 of 11 shots and finished with 16 points, six assists and two turnovers in Sunday's 90-87 home win over Philadelphia. Wall scored the game's final six points after Beal was carried off the court with a sprained left ankle.

"I've proven myself in college," said Wall, a former No. 1 overall pick out of Kentucky. "I just have to keep proving myself."

Beal is listed as day-to-day, but the Timberwolves (20-37) will get their first look at Wall since Washington's 114-101 home win on Jan. 25 that was his first start of the season. The third-year point guard had come off the bench for the first seven games following an offseason knee injury.

Wall scored 14 points with five assists in that contest and Beal added 16 points with a career-high four blocks as Washington shot a season-high 57.8 percent.

The Wizards (19-39), though, have lost two straight and nine of 11 at Minnesota. They'll try to win back-to-back road games for the first time since a 3-0 stretch to end 2011-12.

The Timberwolves, meanwhile, haven't won since defeating the 76ers 94-87 on Feb. 20. A major reason why Minnesota has the fewest wins in the Western Conference is the number of injuries piling up on coach Rick Adelman's roster. Kevin Love (hand) has been out since Jan. 8, and now the team will be without starting center Nikola Pekovic (abdominal strain) and forward Andrei Kirilenko (strained left calf) for at least the next three contests.

Pekovic and Kirilenko missed their second and third games, respectively, on Monday when the Wolves were outscored 58-32 in the paint in a 97-81 loss to East-leading Miami.

"I don't think we have any rhythm to our game, probably because of the injuries," said Adelman, whose team has dropped 23 of 28 since Love's last appearance. "We're playing different people, trying to run different things. ... We're trying to find ways to be competitive each game."

Giving the ball to second-year forward Derrick Williams could help. He's averaging team highs with 21.4 points and 10.0 rebounds over the last five games.

Williams had 18 points and 11 boards in the previous meeting with Washington. However, without Pekovic and Kirilenko this time, the young forward could struggle to reach those numbers versus Emeka Okafor and Nene.

Okafor is averaging 13.8 points and 10.7 rebounds in the last nine games, while Nene had 15 points and nine rebounds on Sunday after a two-game absence with a sore right shoulder.

Minnesota's J.J. Barea will be available to back up guards Ricky Rubio and Luke Ridnour after the Flagrant-2 - and subsequent ejection - he received on Monday for his foul on Ray Allen, was downgraded to a Flagrant-1 by the league, meaning he will not face a suspension or fine.

The Timberwolves' last seven-game losing streak was an 11-game skid from March 30-April 17.
