Webster had an abdomen strain.
But in tying a career high with seven 3-pointers, Webster owned the night and, after the latest in a franchise-record streak of five games with four or more made 3s, made a strong case to be re-signed.
Webster's performance was a welcome change after he had only three points in a defeat to the Los Angeles Clippers two days earlier. He's averaging 9.8 points on the season, but has topped 20 in two of his past seven games.
Webster, scoring 9.5 points per game, is averaging 15.3 since being held scoreless against Indiana on Wednesday.
It was only the third double-double of Webster's eight-year career and his fifth game with 10 or more rebounds.
It was only Webster's third game in double figures this season. The Wizards fell to 0-11.
The Wizards announced the deal on Wednesday. He played with the Minnesota Timberwolves last season, averaging 6.9 points and 3.6 rebounds. The 6-foot-7 Webster is averaging 8.4 points and 3.2 rebounds in a seven-season NBA career with the Portland Trail Blazers and Timberwolves. He has shot 37.4 percent on 3-pointers.
The Wolves made the move on Friday, one day after using the amnesty clause on center Darko Milicic. Webster was due to make about $5.7 million this season, but the Timberwolves executed a buyout that required them to pay just $600,000.
