Fantasy Basketball 2010-2011 Team Preview: Washington Wizards (9/17/10)

The Washington Wizards have a few nice young fantasy prospects, but the team overall is going to be very weak.   Last season the Wizards had the Gilbert Arenas gun incident and chose to trade off Caron Butler and Antawn Jamison, while keeping Arenas who was the actual root of the problem.  On top of that, they drafted John Wall to play the same position that Arenas occupies.   It’s going to be an interesting situation.  Wall should get the starting point guard spot with Arenas moving to shooting guard.  Kirk Hinrich will be the sixth man and backup both positions.  Al Thornton should start at small forward with Andray Blatche getting the nod at power forward.  JaVale McGee will get first shot at the starting center job.
