Washington Wizards: Three more keys to upcoming season

Before training camp began less than three weeks, the three keys involved whether John Wall is ready to have a breakout season, the ability of Andray Blatche and JaVale McGee to be more consistent, and if Flip Saunders can help this young roster reach its full potential.

Those concerns remain as the 66-game season tips off at 7 p.m., but here are three more keys to the campaign based on the developments of the past few weeks.

1. Who will emerge as the go-to guy?

I’ll do it if nobody else wants it. (Nick Wass/AP)

2. Which rookie will have the greatest influence on the team?

I can do more than defend. (Nick Wass/AP)

3. Will youth work as an advantage or disadvantage during shortened season?

I can run all week. (H. Rumph Jr/AP)
