Trevor Booker will not play against the Golden State Warriors because of a right foot injury sustained in the fourth quarter of the Wizards’ 114-94 loss in Denver. Booker attempted to work out before the game, but said afterward that he would have to wear a walking boot. Coach Flip Saunders said he wasn’t sure if Booker would be available for the finale of this five-game road trip on Monday against Utah. “Tendon is strained. I don’t know how long it’s going to be. Could be days, could be weeks, could be a month. It’s very tendor.” Nick Young will start at small forward, but will still be under a minutes limitation in his second game back from a bone bruise in his left knee. The Wizards also signed Othyus Jeffers to his second 10-day contract on Sunday, but Saunders laughed when asked if the team could’ve used former Wizard Al Thornton, who accepted a buyout on March 1 to sign with the Warriors. “Could’ve used Al tonight. Won’t be able to,” Saunders said. “Always funny how those things work. Al had his buyout and two of our three men [Rashard Lewis and Josh Howard] went down in the first 24 hours. Kind of the way things work in our league.”
