"I think it's going to be great, just getting my timing back and playing in an actual game."

"I feel good and I've been working hard and playing hard.
The preseason home opener also finds rookie, JaVale McGee, making his Washington, D.C. d├ębut. McGee had 20 points in the win against Memphis.

Juan Dixon has also returned to the Wizards lineup, being added to the roster late this summer.

Wizards look to do well tonight. They are at home, with a lot of fans supporting them.

They should do well.

Good luck Wizards. Gil needs to just let his knee get better on its own so we can have him throughout the next 3-5 years.

With both Antwan and Gil out, is Polin really getting his money's worth?
