Wizards hope to avoid starting the season with 12 straight losses.
Chris Singleton had 13 points and 12 rebounds but missed a crucial free throw against Charlotte. The miss overshadowed Singleton's improve play of late, with him averaging 10 points and 7.3 rebounds over his past three games.
Nene was sore after 29-minute stint against Charlotte and needed some rest a day later, but Randy Wittman said he expects to have the Brazilian big man against San Antonio.
Coach Randy Wittman accepted the blame for the Wizards' 108-106 double-overtime loss to the Charlotte Bobcats, but his players came to his defense after the team dropped to a franchise-worst 0-11.
Wizards hope to snap season-opening 10-game losing streak
It's early, but NBA teams that made big splashes last offseason have yet to reap the benefits. Nowhere is the concern greater than Philadelphia, where all-star center Andrew Bynum has yet to play and recently injured his knee by bowling.
The Wizards big man says his "quad's a little sore" after his first game back from injury, and Coach Randy Wittman will carefully monitor his playing time.
In his first game of the season, Nene made a difference in just 20 minutes.
Martell Webster's putback at the buzzer was waved off, but the Wizards can point to other breakdowns in the final minute that contributed to their 10th straight loss, 101-100, to the Atlanta Hawks in overtime.
There's a slight chance Nene will make his season debut as Washington tries to avoid becoming the 13th team in NBA history to lose its first 10 games.
