Jan Vesely is getting closer to making his NBA debut.
Vesely had a shot in his injured right hip last week and Flip Saunders said he would be evaluated when the team arrives in Orlando.
“Vesely’s making progress,” Saunders said. “Hopefully, he can do some active things on Wednesday and if he can, he might be able to progress enough to play Friday” against New York.
Vesely is finding it difficult to be sitting out while the Wizards remain the NBA's only winless team.
“It’s tough to sit on the bench and see the players, they are playing and they are playing bad,” Vesely said. “Of course, I want to try to help the team.”
