New, comments

The guard is not in Orlando due to personal reasons. There is also another unnamed player who isn’t in the bubble.

The Washington Wizards have begun practicing again in Orlando, Florida. Here’s some proof, via their Twitter account:

They are, however, without guard Garrison Mathews, who was projected to have a bigger role considering that Bradley Beal and Davis Bertans will not participate in the NBA season restart.

According to Fred Katz of The Athletic, Mathews was not in the Orlando bubble due to personal reasons.

Mathews isn’t the only Wizard to decline going to Orlando for now. Ava Wallace of The Washington Post also noted that a second player is not in the bubble.

It isn’t entirely clear who that player is and whether they will play in the season restart. But the Wizards will definitely be shorthanded once the games begin in a few weeks.
