Wizards Information: Scott Brooks Trying to ‘Experimentation’ during preseason games

The Washington Wizards have established themselves as among the better teams in the Eastern Conference over the last couple of seasons.

With much of the core team of players coming back this season, head coach Scott Brooks wants to use the preseason for a opportunity to experiment with all the rotation, based on Candace Buckner of the Washington Post.

John Wall not playing tonight’s preseason opener. Bradley Beal will get approx. 10 minutes, per Scott Brooks.

Brooks is looking at these preseason games since a “experimentation”

Also, Tim Frazier (groin strain) can be outside tonight.

A lot of minutes will be distributed outside to Chris McCullough, Sheldon Mac and Tomas Satoransky will begin at the stage.

This should permit for Brooks to evaluate that lineup mixes might be an effective option this upcoming season. There might be the use of small-ball classes so as to best use the offense while viewing  which players can turn into reputable scorers or playmakers when one or both John Wall and Bradley Beal are outside of the sport.

Wizards have fought to get over the hump over the past couple of seasons getting no farther than the Eastern Conference semifinals from the playoffs in 3 out of the last four years. Including dropping in seven games into the Boston Celtics last season after the group earned their first Southeast division name.

With both the Celtics and Cleveland Cavaliers producing substantial additions to their rosters last summer, Washington has an even greater uphill to scale this upcoming season that will require more than Wall and Beal to step up and create on a nightly basis.
