Grunfeld believes the Wizards can compete with any team in the league.

In a 30-minute news conference, Ernie Grunfeld discussed several topics, including injuries, plans to retain John Wall and Martell Webster, and the performance of Coach Randy Wittman.

After dealing Jordan Crawford to Boston, Wizards President Ernie Grunfeld discussed the reasons for the deal and the team's direction.

Nene was unable to offer a timetable for his return from a left foot injury but said he would like be ready by the regular season opener.

With John Wall out for the next eight weeks, the Wizards won't be able to replicate what he does but they will have to find a way to fill the void in his absence. They have a few options but few answers with training camp approaches.
