Talking Wizards-Spurs Preview

Wizards-Spurs Preview

The San Antonio Spurs aren't ready to panic, but they're definitely not thrilled with how their season has played out so far.

Off to their worst start in 13 years, the injury-plagued Spurs try to avoid their longest losing streak in two seasons Saturday night, when they go for their 10th straight home win over the Washington Wizards.

San Antonio (4-6) dropped its third straight game Thursday - 90-83 to Utah to open its four-game homestand.

The Spurs, who had won 20 straight at home versus the Jazz, have not lost four straight since March 12-17, 2008.

"It's tough," first-year Spur Antonio McDyess said of the team's worst 10-game start since opening 2-8 in 1996-97, the season before Tim Duncan's rookie year. "When you've got a good team expecting to win a lot of games and you're not in the beginning, it's kind of disappointing."

Injuries have added to that disappointment as Duncan, Manu Ginobili and Tony Parker have combined to miss seven games with a variety of ailments.

Parker has been sidelined for four of the last five contests with a sprained ankle and is questionable for Saturday. Ginobili missed his first game of the season Thursday with a strained left groin and is expected to be out for a week.

"(Injuries are) a part of the league, and I believe that's why (the Spurs) brought in some more people to try and weather those storms when you do have injuries," said San Antonio forward Richard Jefferson, who was acquired from Milwaukee in the offseason. "Right now, it's our job to bear down and get it right."
