The Washington Wizards will square off against the New York Knicks without most of the same people they missed against the Charlotte Bobcats. Trevor Booker will sit out another game with what he dubbed a "grade 1" hamstring injury, while Emeka Okafor will not play with food poisoning. Jannero Pargo is expected to suit u[, but Randy Wittman confirmed that the same five players who started against the Bobcats would start tonight.
Wittman emphasized that the Wizards will stress the same areas he stressed following the Bobcats game: limiting fouling, moving the ball better and playing with more flow. He also said he wants to see Bradley Beal play more aggressively and not defer as much.
