After a volatile rookie season interrupted by an unfortunate injury, Danny Abdia will begin tonight (Wednesday-Thursday, 2:30) his second year in the NBA in a different position, with many new faces on the team, many forwards to fight with him for minutes, and many expectations from new coach Wes Ansald Jr., who already recognizes some points for improvement in him.



"Some days you feel like he has it - he's connected, he's aggressive, he broadcasts what I want from him, but some days he looks a little lost," Ansald Jr. said at a news conference yesterday ahead of the Wizards' away game against Toronto. .

"I think it's part of the maturation process that a lot of young players go through. He has to stay in the moment. Sometimes he's so obsessed with what he thinks can turn into a bad pass, that it affects his next shot, the next move. He has to learn to make a wrist faster. If there is Problem, solve it and move on. "

Ansald Jr. promises that "Danny will have a bigger role compared to last season" and states that "I want to see him play in the last minutes of games", but on the other hand clarifies: "He is not there yet. He has to go through all the stages, and earn the His minutes. He's on his way to do it, but I want to see him a little out of the box. He came here as a playmaker, as a good attacking player, but last season he did not have a chance to show it. I want to see him help us more. We have Lots of shots, better spacing, and he has more opportunities to penetrate the basket and make moves for himself and others. I look at him in training and see that he's capable of it. "I read the game properly. We have a lot of confidence in Danny, and I want him to have the same confidence in himself."



The coach added: "With the space we are trying to produce, he will have options on offense. He will get the chance to play some pick and roll, but the bottom line is he has to play with more confidence. He is a tough guy, but puts more pressure on himself than he needs He's hard on himself too sometimes, and that's because of his competitive nature. He wants to be really good, but needs to know how to channel it for his benefit and not against it. "One bad thing to say about his investment. He stays to work after training, he asks the old guys questions, it's very important to him. He has an impressive character, he just has to trust himself."

The Locked On Wizards podcast referred to Washington's decision to exercise the option to keep Abdia for a third season on the team.

"It was an easy decision," they explained.

"It's a big year for him, he needs to develop, he needs to be used properly. Scott Brooks has not given Danny the conditions to succeed. He needs to be a main or secondary ball carrier to succeed, and I think the change of coaches will help him. We will finally get to see Washington play on "It will help him get a big new contract when the time comes."
