Patrick Ewing on Allen Iverson: He showed no fear

PHILADELPHIA -- With the Wizards playing this well, they're not going to push center Kevin Seraphin too soon. He'll miss his third game in a row Saturday at the Philadelphia 76ers (CSN, 7:30 p.m. ET). 

Seraphin, who is the primary backup for Marcin Gortat, wasn't with the team as the Wizards (30-28) try to extend their season-long winning streak to six games. That means coach Randy Wittman will have to continue to play more small ball than he's accustomed to and find a formula that works.

That likely will result in Chris Singleton coming off the bench to play at power forward behind Trevor Booker, who is starting in place of Nene (left knee).

Trevor Ariza, the starting small forward, will move into that spot as well which would spread the floor even more.

Wittman said Seraphin is day-to-day. The next game is vs. the Memphis Grizzlies at Verizon Center on Monday.
