Lester Hudson, Cartier Martin and Hamady N'Diaye all make final Wizards roster

As it turns out, the winner of the Wizards' final roster spot derby is -- everyone.  Michael Lee is reporting that the Wizards will carry a full 15-man roster for now and keep all three of Lester Hudson, Cartier Martin and Hamady N'Diaye.

This comes as a mild surprise to me, since I figured the Wizards would keep an open roster spot for trade purposes.  However, as Lee notes, Hudson, Martin and N'Diaye all have non-guaranteed contracts until January, meaning they can easily be cut if a trade comes up.  In essence, there's no reason not to keep them, especially with Josh Howard sidelined.  

So with that, here's the projected depth chart:

PG: John Wall/Kirk Hinrich/Lester Hudson

SG: Gilbert Arenas/Nick Young/Cartier Martin

SF: Josh Howard/Al Thornton/Trevor Booker

PF: Andray Blatche/Yi Jianlian/Kevin Seraphin

C: JaVale McGee/Hilton Armstrong/Hamady N'Diaye

Obviously, that's a bit misleading because people shift between positions, but that's about as good as I can do and get everyone on there.  If we had to pick eight guys to make up a rotation to start the year with Josh Howard out, it'd probably include Wall, Arenas, Hinrich, Blatche, McGee, Thornton, Yi and ... Nick Young?  Seems hard to believe Young is in there, but this is his chance.

We'll have community projections running the next three days, now that the roster is set.  

(Meanwhile, Gilbert Arenas sat out practice with an ankle injury, according to Lee.  Cue the ominous music).
