The Washington Wizards are still undecided on whether to use the amnesty clause on forward Andray Blatche, according to TNT's David Aldridge. 

The Wizards have several options with Blatche. They could use the amnesty or trade him immediately. The amnesty clause would remove the remaining $23 million the Wizards owe Blatche from its salary cap.

Blatche, in his seventh season, only played in 26 games last season, averaging 8.5 points and 5.8 rebounds.  The Wizards removed Blatche from the team during the latter part of the season due to a lack of conditioning. Teams who decide to use the amnesty provision are only allowed to use it once during the life of the Collective Bargaining Agreement. Seven teams (Orlando, New York, Golden State, Cleveland, Brooklyn, Portland and Indiana) have used theirs already.
