Grading Every Key Washington Wizards Player Heading into the NBA All-Star Break
Alex Brandon/Associated Press
The Washington Wizards are in position to make the playoffs, but which players are getting them there, and who needs to step up for the Wizards to grab the third spot in the Eastern Conference?

Barring a major collapse, the Washington Wizards are going to make the playoffs. That last time fans were able to talk about that, Gilbert Arenas was the team's starting point guard. 

But heading into the All-Star break, it looks like the Wizards are going to get back to the Arenas days.

After the break, they need to get back (or over) the .500 mark, something they did last week for the first time since October 2009. 

It doesn't depend on them making the playoffs, but at some points during the season, they have looked as if they could take the No. 3 spot in the Eastern Conference. 

Despite some serious bench issues, the Wizards seem like a great candidate to take over the spot over a Derrick Rose-less Bulls or the slipping Atlanta Hawks

They still sit at two games under .500, but these 10 key players for the Wizards are talented enough to get them over that mark again and into the postseason. 

Although we've graded these players throughout the year, these grades reflect their performances from the first game of the season to the All-Star break. 

Note: All stats are from ESPN unless otherwise noted and are current as of the morning of Feb. 14.
