Food poisoning slowed Marcin Gortat in Wizards' Game 6 loss


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(5/16/2015) Wizards center Marcin Gortat played just 12 minutes in Friday's Game 6 loss that eliminated Washington from the NBA playoffs. Gortat scored just two points on 1-of-4 shooting. The playing time was a career low, and the scoring output matched his career worst. 

Gortat's light workload was due to a case of food poisoning that had plagued him for two days leading up to the game, per the Washington Post

"This morning I could barely walk pretty much. I didn’t feel right," Gortat said. "I came in here and I threw up in the locker room. I felt a little bit better after that. I took a couple shots, different IVs. I feel kind of better now but I ain’t going lie, the shots kind of numbed me out totally. I tried to just go out and do something. Coach gave me an opportunity the first few minutes and it didn’t work for me. He pulled me out."


Wizards forward Marcin Gortat struggles in Game 4


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5/12/2015) Wizards forward Marcin Gortat, who had been one of the team's top performers during the playoffs, struggled in Monday's Game 4 against the Hawks. After averaging 15 points in the team's first seven games, Gortat scored just three points on Monday with just eight total rebounds. 

“We have to get him continually rolling to the basket,” Coach Randy Wittman said, per The Washington Post. “It was just one of those nights. You are going to have tough nights like that.”

Forward Paul Pierce explained the reason behind Gortat's poor game, noting that the Hawks had "effective double teams" and the rest of his teammates not getting the ball to him enough.

“He should have more touches than he did tonight,” Pierce said. “That is on us so we will look at the tape and figure this out.”
