WASHINGTON: GUARDS: Late last year, JOHN WALL finally started to fulfill his promising talent. He got wherever he wanted on the court, and the Wizards were very tough to guard with all the shooters surrounding him . . . BRADLEY BEAL and Wall should mesh beautifully. Beal is a potentially elite shooter, and he rebounds very well for a guard . . . ERIC MAYNOR is fully healthy again after tearing his ACL two seasons ago. He can play some alongside Wall, but mostly he'll be the league's best back-up point guard again . . . GLEN RICE JR. doesn't shoot it nearly as well as his father, but he's an athlete who could break into the rotation down the line . . . GARRETT TEMPLE is insurance in case Wall or Maynor goes down. FORWARDS: The Wizards need NENÊ’S low post offense. It seems inevitable that they'll have to cap his minutes . . . OTTO PORTER is likely to step into the starting lineup early on. They need his defense, as he can guard twos through fours . . . MARTELL WEBSTER will platoon with Porter, providing another outstanding shooter for Wall to feed . . . TREVOR ARIZA is playing out the string on an untradeable deal . . . TREVOR BOOKER has some use as a screener and low-post banger, but not much else . . . AL HARRINGTON may be inefficient, but he can score points in a hurry and is a decent defender'JAN VESELY is still trying to figure out the NBA, though it's too early to give up on his athleticism . . . CHRIS SINGLETON can defend, but he's no more than a garbage-time player due to his atrocious offense. CENTERS: EMEKA OKAFOR may be absurdly overpaid, but he's settled in as a passable starter who helps defensively and doesn't hurt on offense. He'll also miss the beginning of the season with a herniated disc . . . With Okafor's deal expiring at the end of the year, KEVIN SERAPHIN is auditioning to be Washington's center of the future. After showing promise two seasons ago, he was a disaster last season.
PORTLAND: GUARDS: DAMIAN LILLARD is for real, an elite shooter and a natural running the pick-and-roll. Though we're a little worried about what will happen if pick-and-pop partner LaMarcus Aldridge is dealt sometime this season . . . WESLEY MATTHEWS will be battling for playing time with Portland loading up on wings . . . C.J. MCCOLLUM can play either guard spot, but primarily he's a scorer and a potentially elite shooter. He is, however, out a few months with a foot fracture. . . MO WILLIAMS will provide the Blazers with a veteran guard presence who is more than capable of lighting it up on any given night. He is, however, a major defensive liability'If he straightens out his jumper, WILL BARTON could end up being a solid second-unit player . . . EARL WATSON gives them a much more reliable back-up point guard than Ronnie Price was . . . Sharpshooter ALLEN CRABBE will likely find himself in the D-League early on. FORWARDS: LAMARCUS ALDRIDGE's name will be in trade rumors all season, but it won't affect his role as this team's No. 1 option . . . NICOLAS BATUM will continue to do a little bit of everything, playing point forward to allow Lillard to play off the ball at times, and serving as a dangerous three-point shooter . . . DORELL WRIGHT can lock opponents down when he wants to. He'll push Wesley Matthews for minutes . . . Portland will be the next team to try to squeeze production out of 2012 No. 5 pick THOMAS ROBINSON. After Sacramento and Houston both gave up on him almost immediately, Robinson in danger of falling off the NBA map . . . VICTOR CLAVER provides some energy as a second-unit bit player . . . JOEL FREELAND has six fouls to give. CENTERS: ROBIN LOPEZ will be a better fit alongside Aldridge than J.J. Hickson was. Lopez isn't skilled, but he can take some defensive responsibilities away from Aldridge . . . MEYERS LEONARD is, as expected, still a work in progress. He's enormous and there's some raw talent, but he too often looks lost.

*Wizards-Trail Blazers Preview* ===============================


Washington (35-32) at Portland (44-24), 10:00 p.m. EDT

The Portland Trail Blazers have struggled in LaMarcus Aldridge's most recent absence as they fight to earn home-court advantage in the first round of the Western Conference playoffs.

The Washington Wizards are battling for that same goal in the East, and they'll look to win a fourth straight meeting with host Portland as Aldridge is expected to sit out a fourth straight game.

Portland is 6-2 overall this season without Aldridge, but it's hardly played well in its last two as the All-Star big man continues to nurse a back contusion.

After beating New Orleans on Friday, the Blazers (44-24) blew an 18-point lead in Sunday's 113-112 loss to Golden State before struggling to beat NBA-worst Milwaukee 120-115 in overtime on Tuesday.

Aldridge, averaging career highs of 23.4 points and 11.1 rebounds, is doubtful to play in this contest but could return Saturday against Charlotte. Portland sits in fifth place in the West, 1 1/2 games behind Houston.

Wesley Matthews finished with 26 points, Nicolas Batum had 21 points, nine boards and nine assists while Mo Williams added a season-high 23 points off the bench Tuesday.

The Blazers had dropped five of their previous six.

"We're always going to take a win. Ugly, pretty, it doesn't matter," Matthews said. "But we're not happy with the way that we played. We've got to come out with urgency because every game matters for us and that's how we've got to play going into the postseason."

Portland was one off its season high for 3-point attempts with 39, hitting just 12. Coach Terry Stotts realizes it may be difficult for his team to get energized for a contest against the league's worst team, but he's hoping it can regroup against a solid Wizards club.

"We didn't come out with the urgency that we needed," Stotts said. "We struggled to shoot the ball from three. Obviously a couple of guys struggled to shoot. We understand that we were very fortunate to win the game."

Damian Lillard finished with a game-high 25 points in the first meeting with Washington on Feb. 3, but John Wall scored 22 and Trevor Ariza added 20 in the Wizards' 100-90 victory.

Washington (35-32) is fighting to earn one of the East's top four seeds as it prepares to make its first playoff appearance since 2007-08.

The Wizards didn't get a four-game West Coast trip off to a good start, though, falling 117-111 in overtime to Sacramento on Tuesday. They had won 10 of 13 but squandered an 11-point fourth-quarter lead.

"We were up five points (with 24 seconds left) and celebrating like we had already won the game," said Marcin Gortat, who had 19 points and 14 rebounds. "We loosened up way too much. We got punished for being too cocky."

Wall had 14 points and five turnovers before fouling out after averaging 25.7 points over his previous three. The Wizards had won six of seven on the road.

"You've just got to play better in clutch time, and at the end of the day we get punished," Gortat said. "We get punished for being too confident. We've got to pay the price now."

Washington has won the last two meetings in Portland after dropping the previous six.
