The Washington Wizards have now played four games since taking a two week hiatus due to multiple players getting the coronavirus. They have lost all four of those games and have an NBA-worst 3-12 record.
I am on record saying that the team is in panic mode. And I am also on record that it’s time to fire Scott Brooks. These opinions remain.
But I am also not surprised that the Wizards are on a losing streak this tune because of something outside everyone’s control. It is because the team is getting back on the court after two weeks and players are not in top shape against other teams who haven’t had coronavirus outbreaks like the Wizards have.
Still, it is looking more and more difficult to see Washington make the NBA Playoffs’ play-in round this season. Their losing streak doesn’t help, but they were already 3-8 before the outbreak. Barring a sudden winning run, this will be a tough season.
