The Washington Wizards enter today's game against the Detroit Pistons having won two of their first three preseason games. The Wizards look to improve this season upon last season's offense which scored a pedestrian 100.7 points per game. The team will go through the preseason without the services of center Kris Humphries, who is out 3-4 weeks following surgery.

As reported by the Associated Press through, Humphries has surgery for nerve damage in his right pinky finger, which will keep him from basketball activities for about three to four weeks. Humphries was obtained in July in a trade with the Celtics to provide depth in the front court. With Humphries out, expect Kevin Seraphin to see increased playing time.

Humphries, in his 11th NBA season, averaged 8.4 points and 5.9 rebounds in 64 games with the Celtics last season. The veteran power forwards has played for the Jazz, Raptors, Mavericks, Nets and Celtics and has career averages of 6.8 points and 5.5 rebounds per game.
