Martell Webster (ankle) and Nene (foot) won't play against the Nuggets on Monday.
Webster's ankle injury looked bad on Friday and this is not a surprise. On the bright side, the Wizards are off until Friday, so a week off might be enough time for the sharp-shooting swingman to get back in the lineup. He should be held in most leagues. The Wizards will look to Chris Singelton and rookie Otto Porter to fill the big void. Trevor Ariza should also get a lot of shots tonight, especially from 3-point range.
Martell Webster (left ankle) was held out of Monday's shootaround and isn't expected to play vs. the Nuggets.
Webster hurt himself during Friday's game and the good news is that it doesn't sound too serious. Owners must prepare to be without him for at least one game, however, which shifts more playing time to guys like Trevor Ariza, Otto Porter and Chris Singleton.

Martell Webster (ankle) felt "better" on Sunday but the Wizards have yet to determine his status for Monday's game vs. Denver.
Webster seemed mildly optimistic during Saturday's practice but fantasy owners with weekly lineups are in a tough spot. If he doesn't suit up on Monday, he'll have a maximum of two games played.
Martell Webster SG/SF WAS 3 Days
Martell Webster (ankle) missed Saturday's practice after injuring his ankle in the first quarter of Friday's game.
Coach Randy Wittman said Webster is feeling better and they will have a better idea of his status on Sunday. The Wizards don't play again until Monday against the Nuggets, so Webster has another day to rest. Webster is averaging career highs in virtually every category, including 2.5 3-pointers per game.
Martell Webster SG/SF WAS 4 Days
Martell Webster suffered an apparent left ankle injury at the end of the first quarter of Friday's game and went to the locker room.
He launched a half-court shot at the buzzer and came up lame and was in a lot of pain. Webster has been terrific for the Wizards and they might have to bring along rookie Otto Porter a little faster than expected.
Martell Webster SG/SF WAS 10 Days
Martell Webster hit 6-of-11 shots and five 3-pointers for 19 points, three rebounds, two assists, a steal and a block in Saturday's win.
Webster and Ariza both played like All-Stars tonight and both should be in fantasy lineups whenever possible. At least until Bradley Beal is back, while also taking into consideration the fact the Wizards only play two games in the upcoming week.
Martell Webster SG/SF WAS 13 Days
Martell Webster hit 7-of-16 shots and four more 3-pointers for 18 points, five rebounds and seven assists in a start for Bradley Beal on Wednesday.
Just when it looked like the return of Trevor Ariza was going to hurt Webster, Beal was ruled out for the next two weeks, at least. Webster should be owned in all leagues as long as he's starting at shooting guard, while Ariza is also worth using. Ariza had 14 points, two 3-pointers and three steals in the overtime win tonight.
Martell Webster SG/SF WAS 14 Days
Martell Webster started at shooting guard for the Wizards on Tuesday, scoring 20 points with nine boards, three assists, four steals, one block and four 3-pointers in 43 minutes.
He was playing 40 minutes per game in his starts at small forward while Trevor Ariza was out, but now the versatile wing will get heavy work at shooting guard with Bradley Beal (leg) out for two weeks. Webster has a great awareness in getting open and only Klay Thompson has more catch-and-shoot 3-point attempts per game this season, so the triples will be coming in bunches. He's as must-own as it gets.
Martell Webster SG/SF WAS 14 Days
Martell Webster will start at SG vs. the Lakers on Tuesday, in place of Bradley Beal (leg).
Webster thrived as a SF while Trevor Ariza was sidelined and he should have similar success until Beal returns, which won't be for at least two weeks. He's a safe bet to activate in all formats.
Martell Webster SG/SF WAS 15 Days
Martell Webster will move back to the bench on Tuesday night against the Lakers.
It's too bad and it's been a fun ride for his owners while Trevor Ariza was out. In Webster's five starts, he averaged 14.8 points, 5.4 boards, 0.8 steals and 3.0 triples in 40.6 minutes. He was playing 25.6 minutes per game before Ariza went down and hit 1.8 triples per game, so he could still hold value in standard leagues.
