Wizards rookie Jan Vesely is expected to see his first NBA game action Sunday afternoon against the Timberwolves, after sitting out Washington's first seven games with a hip injury. Washington selected the 6-foot-11 Czech forward with the No. 6 pick in the 2011 NBA draft.
"We're going to give him some time tonight," head coach Flip Saunders said before the game. "It's a good opportunity, because they really play one big guy [at center] and some 4s at other times. so I think we'll try to get him some time."
