At 15-36, it's hard to say that the Washington Wizards are having a successful season.
By most standards, they're not.
But with seemingly young talent at almost every position, the Wizards are, in fact, showing signs of improvement. Furthermore, when you factor in point guard John Wall missing all but 18 games during the first half of the season, it lessens the pain of the numbers seen in the standings a little.
Washington fans don't—or at least shouldn't—expect to see a contending team on the floor this season. Instead, they should be focused on the growth and development of the plethora of youth the franchise has at its disposal.
With All-Star Weekend festivities getting started tonight, now is a good time to take a look at the Wizards roster to see whose stock is rising and whose stock is falling.
