Washington Wizards Form & Team News


Washington have narrowly beaten Brooklyn in two high-scoring games so far this season, but they are not in good form right now.

The Wizards have lost seven of their last nine games and three of the last four on the road.

Thomas Bryant (knee) is out for the rest of the season and Ish Smith (quad) is out until April.

Washington are sweating over the fitness off Davis Bertans after he left Thursday’s game with a calf injury and did not return.

Brooklyn Nets Form & Team News


Brooklyn are one of the NBA’s most in-form teams right now with 14 wins in their last 15 games.

The Nets have not been able to beat Washington this season though, losing both of their previous meetings.

Kryrie Irving (groin) sat out Wednesday’s win over Indiana as a precaution but returned against Orlando and should play here.

Kevin Durant (hamstring) will definitely sit this one out though, as will Spencer Dinwiddie (knee).

Recent signing Blake Griffin remains in the league’s Health & Safety Protocols so this game could come too soon for him.
