Nene will play and start

WASHINGTON -- The Wizards are totally healthy, you guys. Nene will play and start tonight against the Bulls, Randy Wittman said before tonight's game.

Meanwhile, Joakim Noah, Marco Belinelli and Rip Hamilton won't play for the Bulls.


Wall: Rose shouldn't come back this season

John Wall has weighed in on the popular debate about whether Derrick Rose should play this season. Speaking from experience (sort of), Wall told Chicago reporters that if he were in Rose's spot, he would have shut himself down already.

Via ESPN Chicago:

"I think the organization and the team understands how hard (Rose plays) and what he does for the city and the team, how hard he works and what he wants to bring back to that city," said Wall, whose Wizards play the Bulls on Tuesday. "So I think (based off) what he has already done, they would understand if he didn't come back.

"I feel like I were in the situation I wouldn't really (come back this year) because you don't have enough time to get into a rhythm. Then you get to the playoffs, D-Rose wouldn't be good for that team just playing 20 minutes a game. They're already a good team and good defensively, but to be even better he would have to play more minutes."

Wall noted how difficult it was for him to find his rhythm until March, when he got into game shape and was playing full games.


Noah, Belinelli to sit vs. Wizards

As expected, Joakim Noah and Marco Belinelli will both sit out Tuesday's Wizards-Bulls game. Noah has not played since March 21 due to plantar fasciitis, while Belinelli has been absent since March 23 with an abdominal strain.

Via the Chicago Tribune:

"They're both better but they both have the type of injury where you don't want it to linger," [Tom] Thibodeau said. "We're winding down right now so we want to make sure they're completely healthy."

Nazr Mohammed will start for Noah, while Daequan Cook will take Belinelli's minutes off the bench.
