The Wizards have plenty to look forward to this weekend: the first place Toronto Raptors, and Marcin Gortat's action figure.
Marcin Gortat is disappointed he didn't get named to the All-Star team, but understands the decision. He does question the 'politics' behind it, however.
Marcin Gortat is fine with not being a first-time All-Star, but is giddy about his first action figure being given out for Saturday's game with the Raptors (CSN, CSNwashington.com, 6:30 p.m.).
The Wizards have a pivotal matchup with the Raptors on Saturday, and if John Wall doesn't play that would complicate matters against a team they always have trouble beating.
The Wizards are third and could easily move up to second, but catching the No. 1 Hawks based on their remaining schedule will prove difficult if not impossible.
