The Wizards are walking a very tight rope right now. They’re winning, but the stress on the starters to play crazy minutes is immense, and you can’t help but worry this the lack of depth is gonna bite them in the rear at some point.
Mahinmi coming back will obviously help, but this team needs a reliable bench scorer who can spell Beal/Wall and call his own number offensively. I’d love to see Will Barton here, and something says Brandon Knight would suddenly come out of his funk if he resurfaced on the Wizards bench. It’s also comical that Jason Smith (JASON SMITH!) is playing real minutes off the bench for a team with any real aspirations. They’ve gotta shore that up quickly.
