Gerald Wallace added 19 points and reserve Anthony Morrow had 17 as the Nets (20-37) won for the fourth time in six games to keep their microscopic playoff hopes alive with nine games left in the season.

Before the game, the Nets said starting center Brook Lopez would be sidelined for the rest of the season because of injuries to his right foot and ankle. He played in five games.

John Wall had 18 points, six rebounds and four assists for the Wizards (12-44), who have dropped five straight and 10 of 11.
