There's only one more preseason game to go before the Wizards must decide who makes their final roster, and as we hit the home stretch, I feel like I'm more confused than ever. Part of this is injuries, real or fake. Part of it is because people are working their way back from injuries they already suffered. Part of it is because Flip Saunders has done what he could to give everyone a chance.
Regardless, it's clear that the end result of Saunders basically declaring open competition on all roster and rotation spots is that ... those spots are still up for grabs. Here's what I think we know.
- John Wall will start at point guard.
- Andray Blatche will start at power forward.
- Yi Jianlian will be at least the top frontcourt reserve.
- Gilbert Arenas, barring a miracle, will start at shooting guard.
