Wizards hold players-only meeting before Timberwolves game

Rob Carr

Now the struggles are serious, you guys.

It's like clockwork. Team has expectations, team struggles, team has players-only meeting. We're now at stage 3 with the Wizards, according to Michael Lee of the Washington Post:

Veterans Trevor Ariza and Al Harrington are both sidelined with injuries and will miss the Washington Wizards' game against the Minnesota Timberwolves on Tuesday night at Verizon Center. But they don't want their teammates to lose focus of the task at hand as they seek to rebound from their underachieving 2-7 start. Before the team's morning shootaround, Ariza and Harrington organized a players-only meeting to discuss what needed to be done to turn around the season.

Randy Wittman feigned ignorance when asked about it before Tuesday's game.

"They did?" Wittman told reporters when asked about the meeting. "I didn't know. I wasn't part of it."

There were no hijinks, unlike (reportedly) the players-only meeting that happened in Cleveland. Kevin Seraphin suggested in Lee's piece that the Wizards never had players-only meetings in the past, which seems hard to believe, but oh well. The Cavaliers won their first game after their meeting; let's see if the Wizards do the same.
