The Wizards have shut down SG Nick Young (knee), SG/SF Josh Howard (knee), rookie center Hamady N’Diaye (ankle) and SF Cartier Martin (ankle) for the rest of the 2010-11 season. 25-year old Nick Young had a breakout year for the Wizards. He played in 64 games (40 starts) for the Wizards this year and he averaged 31.8 minutes, 17.4 points, 2.7 rebounds and 1.2 assists per game. Young will be a big part of the Wizards’ future. 30-year old Josh Howard has likely played his last game for the Wizards. He played in 18 games (10 starts) for the Wizards this year and he averaged 22.7 minutes, 8.4 points, 4.1 rebounds and 1.3 assists per game. 24-year old rookie center Hamady N’Diaye played in 15 games (0 starts) for the Wizards last year and he averaged 4.7 minutes, 0.9 points and 0.4 rebounds per game. He didn’t play too much so it’s hard to evaluate him right now. 26-year old small forward Cartier Martin played in 52 games (1 start) for the Wizards this year and he averaged 10.4 minutes, 4.0 points, 1.4 rebounds and 0.3 assists per game. The Wizards can’t wait for this season to end due to the gigantic rash of injuries they have suffered.
UPDATE: (4/7/2011) - The Wizards have waived Cartier Martin.
