Wizards Vs. Bobcats: John Wall Returns For Matchup In Charlotte

Sunday night's matchup between the Wizards and the Bobcats is the closest Washington is going to get to the playoff race this season. Alas, that's because Charlotte currently sits two games back (one in the loss column) of the Pacers for the eighth and final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference.

John Wall returns for the Wizards after serving a one-game suspension for punching Miami center Zydrunas Ilgauskas in a loss Wednesday night to the Heat. Wall should be able to torment the Bobcats, who will toss out D.J. Augustin and Garrett Temple at the point guard spot.

Andray Blatche was the major beneficiary of Wall's absence, as he was free to hoist up 32 shots en route to a 36 point, 19 rebound show against the Cavaliers. Blatche has repeated that he's happier to do less this year with Wall running the show. Let's see how it affects his game.
