KEY GAME INFORMATION
CHARLOTTE: GUARDS: KEMBA WALKER has become a more efficient scorer as well as a capable distributor. He'll sacrifice some shots with Al Jefferson coming in, but he should have more space with which to operate. Down the line, he could mesh nicely with pick-and-pop four Cody Zeller . . . GERALD HENDERSON transformed from a raw athlete into an effective, efficient scorer in the second half of last season. He should be the No. 2 or 3 option this year . . . RAMON SESSIONS is locked in as a sixth man. He's not a shooter, but his ability to get to the line makes him an effective second-unit scorer . . . BEN GORDON seems to be going through the motions at this point. His real value this season is his enormous expiring contract. FORWARDS: MICHAEL KIDD-GILCHRIST is going to be a quality NBA player for a long time, but he's not close to being a major factor offensively. He'll continue to defend and rebound effectively for a wing, but he's a No. 4 or 5 option on the offensive end of the court . . . JOSH MCROBERTS proved good enough to be a rotational player on a bad team last year. He has a chance to start early on while the Bobcats bring some young guys along . . . CODY ZELLER struggled against length and athleticism in college, so it seems the 'Cats think he can be more of a stretch, pick-and-pop four. If he proves to be a shooter, he's athletic enough and a good enough rebounder to be a solid NBA starter . . . JEFFERY TAYLOR is a forgettable second-unit player who can defend a couple of positions. ANTHONY TOLLIVER won't see the floor much, but he can stretch the floor with his shooting ability. CENTERS: We'll see how the Bobcats mesh with AL JEFFERSON, the NBA's worst defensive big man and a lane-clogging black hole on offense. He can score, and at (an incredible) $40 million-plus, Charlotte will run everything through him . . . BISMACK BIYOMBO will play some alongside Jefferson, as the Bobcats desperately need to cancel out Jefferson's defense. But the young big man figures to be used more sparingly this year . . . BRENDAN HAYWOOD is still kicking around.
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.

*Bobcats-Wizards Preview* =========================

By JORDAN GARRETSON STATS Writer

Charlotte (39-38) at Washington (40-37), 7:00 p.m. EDT

The Charlotte Bobcats and Washington Wizards have already ended their postseason droughts but are still battling each other for seeding.

Charlotte will visit Washington on Wednesday night in a matchup with big implications in the Eastern Conference playoff picture.

The Bobcats (39-38) clinched their second-ever postseason berth and first since 2010 on Saturday with a 96-94 overtime victory at Cleveland. The Wizards (40-37) were guaranteed their first appearance since 2008 after last Wednesday's home win over Boston.

Washington can double its one-game edge over Charlotte for sixth place with a win Wednesday, while the Bobcats would forge a tie with a victory and claim the tiebreaker for winning the season series 3-1. It would end up even if the Wizards win, but they'd get the tiebreaker for having already clinched a better Southeast Division record. Washington is 8-5 against division foes while Charlotte is 4-10.

A sixth-place finish figures to be much more favorable with a likely first-round matchup against Toronto or Chicago, while the seventh-place finisher will face Indiana or Miami. Charlotte is a combined 1-6 against the Pacers and Heat and 0-3 versus the Bulls, though it swept all three matchups with the Raptors. Washington is a combined 3-4 against Chicago and Toronto but won in both cities, and it is 2-4 versus Miami and Indiana with every loss coming on the road.

Bobcats coach Steve Clifford, though, cautioned against placing too much focus on the standings.

"To do something of significance, you have to be at the top of your game," said Clifford, who added that he has no plans to rest his starters down the stretch. "You can't spend any time worrying about seventh seed (or) sixth seed. It doesn't matter. It's about improving."

Still, it is hard to dismiss the potential importance of first-round matchups. Charlotte was swept out of the first round in its only previous playoff appearance in 2010 by second-seeded Orlando. Sixth-seeded Milwaukee pushed third-seeded Atlanta - a team with six fewer wins than the Magic - to seven games that year.

The Bobcats will be looking for a fifth straight win Wednesday for the first time since taking six in a row March 5-14, 2010.

"We don't want to get to the playoffs and get swept," said Al Jefferson, averaging 24.9 points over his last 19 contests with 12 double-doubles. "We want to make some noise in the playoffs."

Washington is coming off its worst home loss of the season, 96-78 to Chicago on Saturday. The Wizards were held to 26 first-half points, their fewest since scoring that many in a loss to San Antonio on Feb. 2, 2013.

One of the league's top 3-point shooting teams on the season at 38.5 percent, Washington was 3 of 16 from deep. Top marksman Trevor Ariza was 1 for 9 from the field and 0 for 3 from beyond the arc while playing through an illness.

Prior to that defeat, the Wizards had won four of five with the lone loss coming in Charlotte - 100-94 on March 31. John Wall was limited to 10 points on 4-of-16 shooting, and Washington was outrebounded 48-37.

Nene's return could help the Wizards in that department. He's averaging 14.2 points and 5.8 rebounds but has been sidelined since spraining his knee Feb. 23. Nene was back at practice this week and is expected to play limited minutes Wednesday.

Clifford said he expects Josh McRoberts to return against Washington after sitting out three contests with a sprained left ankle.

Jefferson averaged 22.5 points in Charlotte's two wins over the Wizards this season and was held to six in its only loss.
