Pistons Vs. Wizards: Trevor Booker Injury Alters Washington Lineup

Trevor Booker will sit out the Wizards' contest vs. the Pistons on Monday night with an injury (right knee tendinitis, plantar fasciitis). Kevin Seraphin gets his second consecutive start, one night after filling in for Nene (back spasms) in Boston.

Tonight's lineup: G John Wall | G Jordan Crawford | F Chris Singleton | F Kevin Seraphin | C Nene

Booker has been playing hurt for much of the season. After the Wizards March 22 loss to the Pacers, he said it felt like he said the pain was affecting his game.

"My foot is bothering me a little so I felt like I couldn't do the things that I usually do." Booker said. "It feels like I'm running with a nail in my foot.

"It's been going on for like two months now," he added. "But it's just getting worse."

Booker sat out the fourth quarter on Sunday against the Celtics.

In that game, Seraphin stepped into the starting lineup and had the best game of his pro career: 15 points, 11 rebounds, two steals and a block. This will be a good chance to see how the team looks with him playing extended minutes on the court next to Nene, who is back after the one-game break.
