John Wall will miss the first month of the season.

The Washington Wizards have been labeled as one of the league's worst teams.  That's fair.  Last year, they were.  But there's a lot of reasons to expect things to improve this season.

With expectations so low, it won't take a phenomenal season by John Wall and company to exceed them.  Still, Wizards fans can take solace in the fact that the team has a lot of talent and has ridden themselves of the cancer that was Andray Blatche, as the team amnestied the overpaid forward this offseason, which will help them clear cap room moving forward.

Make no mistake, the Wiz are rebuilding, but even rebuilding teams (theoretically) want to win as many games as possible, and it's worth taking a look at why the Wizards may be better than expected—low though those expectations may be.
