PHOENIX: GUARDS: With Steve Nash gone, GORAN DRAGIC takes over at the point. He was a monster as a starter in Houston late last year, and he's familiar with Phoenix's system from his time there as Nash's backup . . . SHANNON BROWN is one of the league's better sixth men and could end up seeing close to starter minutes this year. Once just a raw athlete, he's made major strides as a shooter and ball-handler . . . KENDALL MARSHALL was a bit of a product of an absurdly talented supporting cast in college at UNC. He's got work to do to become an NBA-caliber starter, but he'll be capable enough as a backup point guard as a rookie . . . SEBASTIAN TELFAIR still can't hit an open jump shot, but will factor into the backcourt rotation. FORWARDS: LUIS SCOLA steps in as the starting four. While he's in his 30's and an underwhelming athlete, he's crafty and relentless . . . JARED DUDLEY will continue to be their main catch-and-shoot threat on the wing. It might take a while to develop an on-court chemistry with Dragic . . . MICHAEL BEASLEY has a chance to grab a starting spot. He rarely has his head on straight, but he can score . . . CHANNING FRYE, the sharp-shooting 7-footer, will likely miss the 2012-13 season due to an enlarged heart, but this condition is expected to completely heal . . . WESLEY JOHNSON gets a fresh start. He needs to start knocking down shots to land a rotation spot . . . MARKIEFF MORRIS showed flashes as a rookie, but has to make better decisions on the offensive end. He'll be a key on the second unit . . . Well-traveled P.J. TUCKER earned himself a roster spot with an impressive Summer League. CENTERS: MARCIN GORTAT had a great year-and-a-half alongside Steve Nash, and he'll have to prove he can create in the low post a little more. But he's a skilled big man who should pair nicely with Luis Scola as a scorer and passer in the post . . . Injury-riddled JERMAINE O'NEAL is still a strong low-post defender and shot-blocker.
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.

*Suns-Wizards Preview* ======================


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

Stellar outside shooting performances from John Wall don't occur with great regularity.

They're not quite as rare, though, as Washington Wizards victories over the Phoenix Suns.

Wall looks to stay hot while helping Washington avoid an 11th straight loss to Phoenix on Saturday night at the Verizon Center.

The Wizards (22-42) have been playing fairly well of late despite still missing injured rookie Bradley Beal, who has been out for the last six games with a sprained left ankle.

Washington has won three of its last four and Wall has been a major factor, averaging 26.3 points and 11.0 assists over his last three after finishing with a season-high 29 points and nine assists in Friday's 96-87 win over New Orleans.

The point guard is shooting 59.2 percent in that stretch, including a 3-for-3 performance from 3-point range while hitting 12 of 15 from the field Friday. He went 3 for 42 from long range during the lockout-shortened 66-game season in 2011-12, and entered the last contest 3 for 20 over his first 30 games after sitting out the first part of this season with a knee injury.

"You look at Jason Kidd, he didn't start making 3s until late in his career," said Wall, who hit 9 of 12 from at least 13 feet away. "As long as I can make the mid-range (shot) and improve my game and help my teammates out, that's all that matters to me."

The Wizards are 14-4 in their last 18 at the Verizon Center after dropping 13 of 16 on their home floor to begin the season. They've won four straight at home, with Wall shooting 62.5 percent during that streak.

"Larry Bird didn't have the picture-perfect shot, but he shot it the same way every time," coach Randy Wittman said. "... John, he's got to make it the same shot. He can't take two different shots."

Wall, though, is averaging only 11.0 points and shooting 33.3 percent in three career games versus the Suns, who have won the last 10 meetings by an average of 17.5 points.

Phoenix also has won six straight matchups in Washington - the last five by double digits - but it enters this contest just 7-27 on the road after falling 107-94 at Atlanta on Friday.

Goran Dragic finished with 21 points and eight assists for the Suns (22-44), who have lost five of six - with the defeats coming by an average of 18.8 points. They are tied with New Orleans for the Western Conference's worst record.

"It's tough, but everybody is a professional and we have to play right to the end of the season," Dragic said.

Phoenix committed 24 turnovers Friday after finishing with 22 in a 111-81 loss at Houston on Wednesday. It ranks near the bottom of the league with 15.5 giveaways per game.

"(The turnovers were) pretty much the ballgame for us," interim coach Lindsey Hunter said. "And some of our shots were like turnovers because they were pretty bad. On the road, you can't turn the ball over and make mental mistakes defensively.

"It's just a process of us learning how to finish games and how to win tough road games."

The Wizards haven't beaten the Suns since a 144-139 overtime victory Dec. 22, 2006.
