  • Otto Porter's status in doubt for Game 6 against Raptors

    There appears to be at least some chance the Wizards will be without starting small forward Otto Porter when they host the Toronto Raptors in Game 6 of their first round playoff series on Friday night in Washington. Porter, 24, continues to deal with a right lower leg strain. The injury is located on the outside of his calf and will require further testing from the Wizards' medical staff to determine his status.

  • Second-half eruption leads Wizards to pivotal Game 4 win over Raptors

    The Washington Wizards beat the Toronto Raptors 106-98 in Game 4 of their first round playoff series on Sunday night. Brand New Series: After going down 0-2, most may have written the Wizards off knowing the near-insurmountable odds of coming back not only from that deficit but as an eight-seed going up against the best team in the Eastern Conference. It would have been understandable to doubt these Wizards who have for so much of this season allowed teams to bully them to an uncharacteristic degree.

  • Wall takes over, Wiz beat Raps 106-98 to tie series at 2-2

    John Wall took over down the stretch after Bradley Beal fouled out, having a hand in 10 of Washington's last 14 points and finishing with 27 points and 14 assists as the No. 8 seed Wizards came back to beat the No. 1 Toronto Raptors 106-98 Sunday night and even their Eastern Conference first-round playoff series at 2-all. The game was tied at 92 with about five minutes left when Beal — who led Washington with 31 points — drew his sixth foul on a play in which he and DeMar DeRozan collided while Toronto had the ball. Beal raced along the sideline, put his hands on his head, then returned to the Wizards' bench area and threw a red towel before being restrained by teammates. The Raptors went up

  • Top-seeded Raptors once again facing ghosts of postseasons past

    Once he got that skipping, cursing, jersey-untucking, mouthpiece-tossing (twice) tantrum out of his system and accepted the reality that his night was over with six fouls, Bradley Beal gathered his teammates in the huddle with a simple message: “We’re not losing. Beal was having one of those performances that have become the norm for him in the postseason, a 31-point effort that rallied his team back from a 14-point deficit to give the unlikeliest of eighth seeds a chance to even the series with the top-seeded Toronto Raptors. For those unaware of how the Wizards went from being a team that entered the season expecting to become an Eastern Conference power only to bottom out from injuries and funky chemistry, understand that they only know how to operate through anger and adversity.
