Trevor Booker has been one of the bright spots on the roster this season. However, as it is with bright spots on the Wizards this season, they don't last for very long.
Booker suffered an injury to his right ankle late in the team's loss to Denver on Friday. While X-rays of the ankle proved to be negative, the injury was still painful enough to force Booker from Sunday night's game in Oakland.
Booker bumped knees twice in the fourth quarter against Denver and was limping around the court late. In the locker room after the game, Booker was seen limping and wincing in pain.
Booker, a 6-7 rookie, has been one of the few pleasant surprises this season. He has made the most of his playing time, which has come as a result of injuries in Rashard Lewis and Andray Blatche. Before the injury kept Booker out of Sunday night's game, Booker had started the previous eight. In those games, Booker has averaged 11.4 points and 7.6 rebounds.
It is uncertain whether or not Booker will be available when the Wizards close out their five-game road trip Monday in Salt Lake City.
WARRIORS 114, WIZARDS 104: After scoring 67 points in the first half, the Wizards scored just 37 points in the second of their latest loss. The Wizards wasted a career day from center JaVale McGee. McGee finished with a career-high 28 points and a career-high tying 18 rebounds and five blocks. Mo Evans finished with 23 points, his best effort as a Wizard. Golden State was led by Monta Ellis' 37 points and 13 assists.
