The Wizards list of injured players continues to grow as Nick Young and Josh Howard will both be out against the Chicago Bulls, joining Rashard Lewis, Cartier Martin and Andray Blatche. Howard was limited to just one half in the loss against Oklahoma City and Young continued to struggle from the floor, missing 12 of his final 13 shots in the Wizards’ fourth consecutive loss. Since scoring 21 points against the Pistons, Young has averaged just 12 points and shot 16 for 46 in his past three games. The injuries leave the Wizards with just nine healthy players and Coach Flip Saunders will start Yi Jianlian and Jordan Crawford. Blatche will get a second MRI on Wednesday for his sprained right shoulder and Lewis will get another opinion on his sore right knee later this week in New York.
