Frustrations are beginning to boil over in Washington.

The Wizards are struggling and coach Flip Saunders expects to make lineup changes before their next game.

"We have guys that are frustrated that they're not playing and I'm sure they are sitting there wanting opportunities," Saunders said. "And guys will get opportunities starting Monday because we're not getting it done as it is right now."

The Wizards will next play at home against the 76ers on Tuesday.

Gilbert Arenas says players on the team have "hidden agendas," pointing out that eight players on the team are free agents following the season.

"I guess when you start losing everyone wants to start pointing fingers everywhere else," Arenas said. "I converted my game to try to get people involved, but at the end of the day, to be honest, this is the same team since three years ago. We added a couple of pieces, but everybody else is basically the same player.

"I'm sitting here thinking 'Do I have to go in attack mode like I was two years ago to get us over this hump?' I hope not. I hope we're strong enough mentally that we can get over this."

How can what 3 coaches

How can what 3 coaches so-far be so dumb as to never play Nick Young? That is flat-out confusing.

because he isnt as good as

because he isnt as good as some fans think. he is a pretty good player but he doesnt have a high basketball iq and makes too many simple mistakes..if it was just one coach seeing it then there could be a arguement but when 3 coaches see it then its pretty much how it is.

This year is actually the

This year is actually the only year Young hasn't gotten decent minutes..he played good minutes for a rookie, and last year he showed the ability to score in less than 24 min a game...but he does have a low basketball IQ and he's not good on D. But they should be playing him more, he's got a sweet jumper and a great 1st step.

and then you have to take in

and then you have to take in account if you give him more minutes then you're taking away minutes from someone who is contributing in the same way he could plus doing a lil more and playing better defense. alot of people don't take that into account when saying someone should be playing more minutes.

Now that Miller is down,

Now that Miller is down, look for him to get a few more minutes. If he is as good as everyone thinks, why hasnt he shown it yet. I always thought that the tallent always rises to the top. IDK though.

Washington Wizards were

Washington Wizards were stupid to try to get all those bodies and not have enough minutes. They have a lot of players that could be starting or first person off the bench not getting any time at all.

Haha I want to see Arenas go back into attack mode.

 I think the Wizards are going to turn it around.  I still expect them to make the playoffs.

I got ripped this summer for

I got ripped this summer for saying Washington would still have injury issues be battling for 7th or 8th seed or be one of the first teams out in the East. It was almost considered a fact that on this site that they would be the #4 seed. You can't expect a team with injury issues and not much time playing all healthy as a team to have a lot of chemistry. A lot of teams look good on paper.
