Marcin Gortat sharply criticized the bench play of the Washington Wizards after their loss to the Chicago Bulls on Saturday to drop to 2-7 this season.

“We need energy. We need effort. We’ve got to make shots,” Gortat said. “I think there’s a lot of things we can do better. I think right now, as far as I know, I think we’ve got one of the worst benches in the league right now.”

The Wizards' preferred starting lineup of John Wall, Bradley Beal, Otto Porter Jr., Markieff Morris and Gortat has a 101.2 offensive rating and 100.7 defensive rating, but overall the Wizards are 100.1 and 104.8. 

Jared Dudley, Garrett Temple, Ramon Sessions, Gary Neal, Nene and Kris Humphries are all gone from Washington's roster.

“I’m not afraid to throw guys in there,” Brooks said. “Age has nothing to do with my process. Experience, that helps but you gain experience day by day if we do our job of developing our guys.”
