Davis Bertans – who’d disappointed since signing an $80 million contract last offseason – finally came through for the Wizards in their Game  4 win over the 76ers last night.

Now, his playoffs are almost certainly finished.

Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN:

Down 3-1 to Philadelphia, Washington is unlikely to advance past Game 5 tomorrow – let alone still be playing in 4-6 weeks.

The Wizards will miss Bertans’ outside shooting. Even in a down year, he still spaced the floor.

Washington could re-insert Raul Neto into the starting lineup for a three-guard look with Russell Westbrook and Bradley Beal. Expect Anthony Gill and Chandler Hutchison to play more at forward.
