Game 21 discussion thread: Wizards vs. Bulls

The Washington Wizards (4-16) go for their second win in a row on Monday night when they play the Chicago Bulls and reigning most valuable player Derrick Rose at Verizon Center.

The Wizards beat Charlotte, 102-99, on Saturday for their first road victory and second win against the Bobcats in three nights. The East-leading Bulls (17-5) provide a considerably more robust challenge, especially considering they are coming off a 97-93 loss to Miami.

Washington will be without Andray Blatche for three to five weeks. after the starting power forward strained his left calf muscle. Blatche played just eight minutes against Charlotte on Saturday.

Rookie Jan Vesely starts in place of Blatche, and the Wizards figure to use a rotation of Trevor Booker and Chris Singelton as backups.
