Wizards won't make 'snap judgment' on replacing A.J. Price

USA TODAY Sports

The Wizards will not sign a point guard just yet to replace A.J. Price, Randy Wittman said.

The Washington Wizards did indeed work out D-League point guards Blake Ahearn and Ben Uzoh on Sunday, but as of right now, they do not plan on signing either to replace injured point guard A.J. Price, coach Randy Wittman said. Speaking after practice on Monday, Wittman said the team will not make a "snap judgment" on signing anyone to replace Price, be it Ahearn, Uzoh or anyone else.

"We're looking at different scenarios," Wittman said after practice on Monday. "We brought a couple guys in yesterday, looked at them, and we still, we haven't done anything. We don't know when or if we will do anything, but we're looking, looking at different scenarios, different options, different people. We're not going to make a snap, quick judgment. There's not a guy out there right now that warrants that. So we're going to take our time and look at some different guys and see what best fits us moving forward."

In the meantime, Shaun Livingston and Jordan Crawford will hold down the position. Price is expected to miss 4-6 weeks after fracturing his right hand in the Wizards' loss to the Golden State Warriors on Saturday.

Wittman also said that John Wall's status will not make a difference in the team's decision to sign a point guard or not.
