07:35 AM ET 11.20 | Setting futility records isn't easy in Washington, but the Wizards did so on Monday night by stumbling to a franchise-worst 0-9 start -- thanks in part to no starter shooting better than 50 percent. [Jordan Crawford's late] miss was the last in a long line from the starters, who combined for 31 points on 8-for-37 shooting and half of the team's 10 turnovers, leaving Coach Randy Wittman desperately in search of answers. "If I had a cellphone, I'd be calling the waiver wire trying to find another body," he said. ... "I'm playing 12 and 13 every night. You can't do that in an NBA game," Wittman said. "You want want to develop a [starting] group and then a group that comes in. I'm having a hard time doing that with the play we're having."

John Wall has not played this season and is expected to miss a nice piece of the season.

Lol!Yeah, its almost like no one told them that they need to actually play while wall is on the shelf

I'm not sure if they'll be any better even with Wall. He isn't a great shooter.

They need some bodies to make shots.

It's the Team, Not the Coaches!
