With the regular season only two months away, the Washington Wizards have several players who need to use these seven weeks to prepare to help the team get to the playoffs.
Now that the NBA draft and the NBA Summer League are over, Washington's roster is essentially set and fans have an idea of who they will see on the court this season.
Point guard John Wall is back, healthy and ready to lead the team and is surrounded by some incredible young talent, along with several veteran players.
Although there is a lot of talent on this young team, that doesn't mean there's no room for improvement. These five players need to step up their game if they want to be a part of a playoff team.
Now, just because a player has to improve their game doesn't mean they had a bad 2012. It just means there are tweaks that could really make a difference in Washington.
These improvements aren't a requirement for the team's success, but three or four of these players making improvements would almost guarantee a spot for the Wizards in the postseason, especially given the uncertainty of the Eastern Conference.
