Neal agreed to terms Friday with the Wizards on a one-year deal that will pay him $2.1 million, Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports reports.

Neal endured a difficult season in 2014-15, spending time with the Hornets and Timberwolves. The veteran averaged 11.8 points and 3.2 rebounds for Minnesota but struggled mightily in Charlotte, averaging just 9.6 points on 35.9 percent shooting. The Baltimore native will seek a fresh start near his hometown and should carve out 20 or so minutes per game off the bench on most nights.

Neal appeared in only 11 games for the Timberwolves this season after coming over from Charlotte in February.

Neal began the season in Charlotte and struggled mightily through 43 games, averaging 9.6 points on just 35.9 percent shooting. He came to Minnesota in a deal that sent Mo Williams to Charlotte but only appeared in 11 contests, in which he posted averages of 11.8 points and 3.2 rebounds in 23.8 minutes. Neal went down with a severely sprained ankle against Charlotte on Mar. 22 and would go on to miss the final 13 games of the season (all Timberwolves losses). Entering the offseason, Neal will be an unrestricted free agent. He's struggled to find a home since leaving San Antonio for Milwaukee two summers ago, but he figures to draw considerable interest as a low-cost, veteran shooter off the bench.

Minnesota head coach Flip Saunders said no injured players, including Neal (ankle), will play in Minnesota's final two games, head coach Flip Saunders told the Minneapolis Star Tribune.

Neal has played just one game since Mar. 13, so this isn't a surprise with nothing positive for Minnesota to play for the final two games.

Neal (ankle) is hoping to play in the final two games of the season, Darren Wolfson of ABC reports.

This news means that Neal should be considered out for Saturday's game against the Warriors as he continues to nurse his ankle injury. The 30-year-old has missed 14 of the last 15 games and won't likely see considerable time on the court if he does return before the the season comes to an end.

Neal (ankle) will not play against the Lakers on Friday, Jerry Zgoda of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

Neal hasn't played since Mar. 22, and the team hasn't provided any information that would lead one to believe he's close to returning. With only three games remaining beyond Friday's contest, Neal could very well have played his final game of the season.

Neal (ankle) has been ruled out Wednesday against the Blazers.

Neal has not played since Mar. 22, and at this point one has to wonder if the team will simply rule him out for the rest of the season with only five games (including Wednesday's) remaining.

Neal (ankle) has been ruled out for Tuesday's game in Sacramento.

Neal's absence due to an ankle concern will extend yet another game. With no sign of a return imminent, consider him highly questionable to return Wednesday at Portland.

Neal (ankle) went through practice Saturday, Kent Youngblood of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

Neal hasn't played since Mar. 22 due to an ankle injury, but his presence at practice suggests he could return as early as Tuesday against the Kings. With the Timberwolves' roster depleted by injuries, Neal could see significant minutes upon his return, though he'd likely remain in a bench role.
