The Washington Bullets finally seemed to be getting healthy again last week, getting Rex Chapman and Kenny Walker back from stints on the injured list. But yesterday, there was more bad news.Michael Adams was found to have a partially separated left shoulder, forcing the Bullets' point guard on the injured list. He might miss as many as three weeks.Less than five minutes into Wednesday's game Adams went down after colliding with Phoenix Suns forward Cedric Ceballos. After the 142-106 loss -- Washington's worst defeat of the season -- Adams left USAir Arena with his left arm in a sling.

LANDOVER -- Just call him Chris Webber, prophet.With his team mired in a six-game losing streak, Webber sat next to David Letterman on national television Thursday night and guaranteed a Washington Bullets win against the Detroit Pistons last night.That guarantee was delivered in impressive fashion in Washington's 115-104 win before a sellout crowd of 18,756 at the USAir Arena that marked the first win of the Webber-era after four losses.Six players scored in double figures last night for the Bullets.

LANDOVER -- It was a vintage Chris Webber performance against the Los Angeles Lakers on Saturday night, when he scored 22 points and grabbed 20 rebounds. But there was no cause for celebration afterward."It's nothing to feel good about," Webber said after the 112-96 loss -- the Washington Bullets' fifth in a row. "Who cares about stats? I'm here to win, and when we win I'll start feeling good."Webber's statistics were impressive, but they could have been even more dominant had there been a little more familiarity with his teammates.

BOWIE -- Like a kindergarten teacher on a school outing, Washington Bullets coach Wes Unseld spends much of his time these days counting heads.When the count of live bodies fails to reach 10, or enough to hold a practice, he asks general manager John Nash to fetch another player.For the third time this month, Nash obliged yesterday by signing guard Larry Robinson to a 10-day contract. Only last week, the struggling Bullets (16-40) did the same with guard Byron Irvin and center Alan Ogg after Rex Chapman (ankle)
