Admiral Schofield makes Wizards history playing two games in one day

With Thomas Bryant, Ian Mahinmi and Moe Wagner out, Scott Brooks had to get creative in filling out his frontcourt. 

Rui Hachimura got the start at center and rookie forward Admiral Schofield got some time at the five as well even though he already played 38 minutes with the Capital City Go-Go Tuesday morning. 

According to Dante Marchitelli, Schofield became the first player in Wizards history to play in both an NBA G-League game and an NBA game on the same day.

It has not happened anywhere else in the NBA this year yet and has only happened 38 times in NBA history. 

That's unfortunately the state of the Wizards' frontcourt. Wagner may be able to return in the next game or two, so Brooks will have at least one option at the center spot.
