Jan Vesely Injury Update: Wizards Rookie May Make His Debut Against Magic

The Washington Wizards are getting ready to take on the Orlando Magic in Orlando, and they could see the sixth pick of the NBA draft, forward Jan Vesely make his NBA and Wizards debut in some capacity, according to Michael Lee of the Washington Post.

While Vesely will dress for the game, it looks like his role will be to play "Hack-a-Dwight" to put Orlando's star player on the free throw line, rather than let him rack up points in the paint and catch ally-oops from point guard Jamar Nelson. Vesely had been dealing with some discomfort in his hip that has caused him to miss the beginning of the season.
