NEW ORLEANS: GUARDS: This offense will belong to ERIC GORDON. He'll get over the fact that the Hornets matched his offer from Phoenix, and as long as his surgically-repaired knee holds up, he's one of the most complete young scorers in the NBA . . . The Hornets reached for AUSTIN RIVERS with the 10th pick because Monty Williams wants to coach him and thinks he can be an NBA point guard. Rivers has the handle, but his athleticism is ordinary and, more importantly, he has never shown a PG mentality at any level . . . GREIVIS VASQUEZ is the closest thing to a true point guard on this roster. He'll see solid minutes assuming Rivers' adjustment is a tough one . . . Well-rounded ROGER MASON JR. will also provide point guard depth . . . XAVIER HENRY hasn't lived up to his reputation as a shooter, but the Hornets can be patient with him . . . Rookie BRIAN ROBERTS has had a strong enough preseason to likely earn a roster spot. FORWARDS: ANTHONY DAVIS should step right in as a starter. His offensive game is further along than he gets credit for, and on the defensive end he's an absolute force from the basket out to the perimeter . . . He'll probably miss having Dwight Howard drawing in defenses, but RYAN ANDERSON has always been a very good three-point shooter. He and Davis are unique enough talents to share the court even if they're both power forwards . . . AL-FAROUQ AMINU made some strides on the defensive end late last season, which is what will get him minutes under Williams. He's underwhelming on the offensive end . . . If HAKIM WARRICK couldn't succeed as Steve Nash's pick-and-roll partner, it seems unlikely he'll ever help in New Orleans . . . Rookie DARIUS MILLER is looking to establish some kind of role with the team . . . LANCE THOMAS is doubtful to earn a salary to pay off his jewelry debts. CENTERS: ROBIN LOPEZ has always had the ability to protect the rim and does a decent job in space. Look for him to end up grabbing the bulk of minutes in the middle . . . JASON SMITH gives the Hornets a more offensive-minded option off the bench.
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.

*Hornets-Wizards Preview* =========================


New Orleans (22-43) at Washington (21-42), 7:00 p.m. EDT

While John Wall says he still isn't fully up to speed after missing the first 10 weeks of the season, his latest efforts may indicate otherwise.

Wall and the Washington Wizards aim for a fourth consecutive home win Friday night against the last-place New Orleans Hornets.

Wall, who didn't debut until Jan. 12 due to a stress injury in his left knee, is averaging 14.8 points and 7.4 assists in 30 games, just below his career marks of 16.1 and 8.0.

"I think this summer I was in my best shape ever, but after sitting out 33 games, I think you lose it," he said. "I'm still trying to get back into top game shape. It's tough."

His last two games, though, seem to show that he may finally be at 100 percent.

Wall posted season highs of 27 points and 14 assists in a 95-90 loss at Cleveland on Tuesday and had 23 and 10 in a 106-93 victory over Milwaukee the next night.

"There was an instance tonight where I really saw a glimpse of greatness," said swingman Martell Webster, who's gone 13 for 26 from 3-point range and averaged 19.0 points in the last three games.

Wall has averaged 19.6 points during rookie Bradley Beal's five-game absence due to a sprained left ankle. Beal, scoring 14.2 points per contest, is uncertain to play Friday.

"Just being more aggressive and taking better shots than what I was taking," Wall said of his recent play. "Just give credit to me working harder with (assistant coach) Sam (Cassell) on my jump shot, those type of things."

Averaging an NBA-low 91.9 points, the Wizards (21-42) have scored 99.8 per game in winning 13 of 17 at home. They would appear to have a good chance to continue that success against the Hornets (22-43), who have dropped nine of 11 on the road, including four straight by an average of 17.7 points.

While it wasn't pretty, Washington pulled out a 77-70 win at New Orleans on Dec. 11. The Wizards shot 32.9 percent, their lowest mark in a victory since Nov. 7, 2000. Wall and Hornets leading scorer Eric Gordon, who averages 16.9 points, sat out.

New Orleans is coming off its fourth loss in five games, 108-98 at Brooklyn on Tuesday. The Hornets shot 51.3 percent but were outrebounded 42-31.

"In games like that, you got to play through the physical contact, because that's what we're going to have to overcome if we're going to be good team someday," coach Monty Williams said.

Gordon scored 24 points, Anthony Davis had 17 and 11 rebounds and Greivis Vasquez added 15 points and 14 assists. Davis has averaged 17.0 points and 12.0 boards over the last five games.

Ryan Anderson missed his first game of the season Tuesday due to an illness and is uncertain to suit up Friday.

The Hornets have won three straight in Washington, last visiting Jan. 1, 2011.
