The NBA season might be over. It might not be. But these stats tell the story for the Washington Wizards, and a couple of dozen games won’t change that.
Whether the 2019-20 NBA season is officially over for the Washington Wizards isn’t quite clear. At this point, now more than two months removed from any NBA action, it seems nearly impossible that they’d be able to finish a full 82-game season, plus a full playoff slate, and still start the 2020-21 season on time.
But the NBA is trying, as Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN recently reported.
It’s no surprise the NBA wants to return to action as soon as they can. But how exactly they’ll go about returning to play, and how that will look, is still to be determined. As of now, we are still without basketball.
Even if the season does resume, things are pretty much over for the Wizards this season. As it currently stands, the Wizards are 5.5 games behind the Orlando Magic, who now hold the East’s final playoff spot. It would take nothing short of a miracle for them to make a playoff push.
Even though we only got to see 64 games as opposed to 82, a 24-40 record leaves no doubt that this Washington Wizards team – without John Wall – is far from a contender. The numbers, beyond just wins and losses, prove that their record was no fluke.
Here are the five numbers that defined the Washington Wizards season (so far).
