Game 57 - Nets vs. Wizards - Friday, April 6, 7:30

The Wizards, according to the most basic numbers, look like the Nets' second easiest opponent this season, better than the Bobcats, but not by much. They have lost four straight and nine of their last 10. They've won 12 games total. Their front court is so bereft of players they had to sign journeyman James Singleton Thursday just to fill out the roster.

Nene is out. Andray Blatche is out. Rashard Lewis is out. Trevor Booker is out. Their young backcourt is promising, with John Wall coming off a 28 point, 10 assist game vs. the Pistons Thursday night. But Jordan Crawford, whose draft rights were traded by the Nets on Draft Night 2010, is in a slump, scoring only 13 points the last two games.

For the Nets, Shelden Williams will probably return to fill in at center after getting poked in the eye before the west coast swing. Deron Williams will presumably not be troubled by a stomach virus. Two weeks ago Friday, Billy King said he would update Brook Lopez's status in two weeks. The Nets now have only 10 games left as the New Jersey Nets, seven of them to be played in Newark, including the next three.
