Wizards will probably be short-handed against Lakers

Fabforum It looks like the Wizards will be without one of their leading scorers when they play the Lakers on Tuesday.

The Washington Post's Wizards blog reports that the Wizards were without their leading scorer, second-leading scorer and third-leading scorer at practice on Monday, as John Wall, Gilbert Arenas and Andray Blatche were all out because of various ailments.

Blatche's appears to be the most severe, with Coach Flip Saunders saying that the 6-11 forward is "probably out" against the Lakers with a swollen left knee. Wall has developed some soreness in his right knee, which Saunders said is probably the result of overcompensation from his left foot injury, and is "very questionable." Arenas is probable, with what the team is calling "general soreness."

Blatche also sat out because of a bruised hip when the Lakers defeated the Wizards last week, 115-108.
