Wizards insert Davis Bertans and Isaac Bonga into starting lineup

Mike DePrisco

WIth Thomas Bryant, Moe Wagner and Ian Mahinmi out vs the Magic, the Wizards revamped their starting five with Davis Bertans and Isaac Bonga.

According to Scott Brooks, the new starting five will include Isaiah Thomas and Bradley Beal in the backcourt with Isaac Bonga, Davis Bertans and Rui Hachimura on the front line. 

This is Hachimura's first start at center in his career, but with nobody available who normally plays in that spot, he'll have to play a ton of minutes there Tuesday night.

Per Cleaning the Glass, Hachimura has played 26 possessions at center so far in his rookie season. In those possessions, the Wizards score 153.8 points per 100 possessions and give up 133.3. 

Those lineups have certainly scored a ton, but there's not much resistance on defense, which properly sums up the Wizards' season to date. 

Luckily for the Wizards on Tuesday, All-Star center Nikola Vucevic is not expected to play.
