Jay Gruden excited by what Derrius Guice can add to Washington’s passing game
Washington rookie running back Derrius Guice caught just 32 passes in three seasons at LSU. But in the NFL, he appears poised to have a significant role as a receiver.
That’s the word from Washington coach Jay Gruden, who said it’s been very exciting watching Guice catch passes during offseason work.
Washington’s depth. The Wizards’ starting five are playoff tested and, if healthy and playing with the sort of consistency they lacked at times during the regular season, will make Wahsington a tough draw for the top-seeded Raptors.

Kyle Lowry vs. John Wall. The two talented point guards are a contrast in styles. Wall races baseline to baseline as quickly as any guard in the league, while Lowry is a fireplug who relies on his strength, fortitude and sweet stroke to exact damage against opponents. All eyes will be on Wall, who has just recently returned from arthroscopic surgery on his left knee. Will there be limitations to be exploited by Lowry, or will Wall, who heard whispers that his team performed better without him, unleash that lightning-quick speed in a series that gets decided at the top of the floor?
Even with his max contract, Hassan Whiteside is constantly trying to prove himself — that’s his lot in the NBA. Two years ago, he got injured in his first playoff run with the Heat, and therefore the results were incomplete. Now he gets another chance.
