With John Wall and Nene recovering from injuries, old and new players will compete to fill the void.
|A defensive-minded wing player who can force turnovers and get out on the open floor for dunks. Won a championship with the Lakers in 2009.|
An undrafted journeyman, Barron won a championship in 2006 as a rookie in Miami.
The third overall pick in June, Beal is a capable shooter, scorer and playmaker. He provides a calm, even-keeled demeanor that belies his youth.
An energetic but undersized forward, Booker fights for rebounds and extra possessions and can occasionally hit the open perimeter jumper.
A veteran big man who prefers to shoot perimeter jumpers, Cook can spread the floor on offense.
A fearless shooter and gutsy competitor, Crawford can play both guard positions and will likely emerge as a primary scorer with John Wall out for two months.
|A former standout at Gonzaga, Gray is a solid perimeter shooter still waiting for a shot in the NBA after playing last season in Latvia.|
|A converted shooting guard, Mack was John Wall’s primary backup last season but will have to contend for playing time at point guard in his second season.|
|20||Cartier Martin||F||6-7||220||4||Kansas State|
|Led the Wizards in three-point shooting after signing with the team in March following a stint in the Developmental League. Can play small forward and shooting guard.|
|A rugged interior defender and skilled low post player, Nene will miss most of training camp and possibly the start of the season with a left foot injury.|
|An underrated but effective big man, Okafor is a solid defender who is eager to rebound from a season in which he missed 39 games because of a left knee injury.|
|A veteran point guard with playoff experience, Pargo has a reputation as a streaky three-point shooter, connecting on 35.4 percent from long distance in his career.|
|A reserve the past few seasons in Indiana, Price is a solid defensive player who will enter the season competing to fill in at point guard for the injured Wall.|
|A 6-10 center who can rebound and set screens, Randolph is looking to latch on in the NBA after being out the past two seasons.|
|A third-year big man, Seraphin blossomed into a dependable offensive weapon who can score with either hand after the Wizards traded JaVale McGee last March.|
|31||Chris Singleton||F||6-8||230||1||Florida State|
|Singleton started 57 games as a rookie, but will have to scrap for an opportunity this season with the recent additions of Trevor Ariza and Martell Webster.|
|24||Jan Vesely||F||6-11||240||1||Czech Republic|
|An athletic forward, Vesely provides high energy and highlight dunks. He has a good basketball IQ but has been reluctant to shoot jumpers.|
|Electrifying point guard with off-the-charts athleticism, Wall will miss the first month of the regular season while recovering from a left knee injury.|
|Martell Webster||G-F||6-7||230||7||Seattle Prep HS|
