The Washington Wizards begin their training camp today with 20 players. Like yesterday for media day, there will be pressers by coaches and players later this afternoon.

Besides figuring out rotations, the Wizards have some not-so-great news from their Media Day rounds as Bradley Beal announced that he was not vaccinated against the coronavirus. Kyle Kuzma said his status was “personal.”

To me, it is unfortunate that the entire team isn’t vaccinated from a public health perspective. I am not sure what complications there will be for Beal and/or Kuzma if or when coronavirus restrictions tighten in some markets.

For a more well-laid out perspective on unvaccinated NBA players, James Dator of SB Nation had a piece on yesterday that a minority of players are effectively holding the rest of the league hostage since they appear to have a much larger say than the majority of players who are vaccinated against COVID-19.

Anyway, here is your place to chat about training camp. Go Wizards.
