Late Saturday night, the Washington Wizards waived forward Johnathan Williams, who had reached the 10-day limit on the team’s injury hardship exception.
Williams appeared in six games for the Wizards (four starts), averaging 5.5 points and 6.3 rebounds.
There are now 16 players on the Wizards roster, plus two-way players Garrison Mathews and Anzejs Pasecniks.
The Wizards are 11-24 this season. They’re being led in scoring by shooting guard Bradley Beal at 27.8 points per game, and have seven other players averaging double-digit points. And have one of the league’s most efficient offenses, despite playing without point guard John Wall this season. But their defense is one of the league’s worst.
