Wizards to work out Ben Uzoh after A.J. Price injury, according to reports

Jayne Kamin-Oncea-US PRESSWIRE

With A.J. Price sidelined, the Wizards brought in Ben Uzoh for a workout, according to a report.

A.J. Price's absence for 4-6 weeks puts the Washington Wizards in a major bind at the point guard position, since John Wall continues to sit with a stress injury in his knee. As part of the effort to address the point-guard void, the Wizards reportedly will work out D-League point guard Ben Uzoh on Sunday, according to reports from Yahoo! Sports' Marc Spears and the Washington Post's Michael Lee.

Uzoh has played five games for the Springfield Armor, averaging 17.8 points, 7.6 rebounds and six assists. He has 60 games and 808 minutes of NBA experience over three years with the Toronto Raptors, Cleveland Cavaliers and then-New Jersey Nets. He actually started eight games for the Raptors down the stretch last year, averaging 7.4 points, 6.4 rebounds and 3.9 assists per game while shooting just 36 percent from the field.

If the Wizards sign Uzoh or any other point guard, they would likely waive Earl Barron. Barron is the only player on the team with a fully unguaranteed contract, and the Wizards currently have a full roster.
