Hey there, Wiz fans! Ready to rekindle an old rivalry at the Verizon Center tonight? Sure, it's a different Cavs team than it was back when the rivalry was in full swing, but hell, it's a different Wizards team, too!

And rejoice! We get to see that fabled Kyrie vs. JWall matchup we've been coveting for years. Seems like nearly every time we get a chance, one of them isn't playing for some reason or another. We won't, however, get the other coveted Dion Waiters vs. Bradley Beal matchup, nor will we get the Otto Porter vs. Anthony Bennett matchup.

But still! Rejoice! There's basketball happening in DC. And it should be a fun one, tonight. Both teams are about the same aggregate talent level, both are coming off some tough losses, both are playing way below their potential, and both have reportedly had some heated discussions pop up in the locker room after losses. So this should be a close and contentious game.

Couple of injury things: Trevor Ariza is out tonight with the hamstring injury. Al Harrington is not listed as "out," but there's still a chance he'll get DNP'd. Dion Waiters is listed as "Inactive," and that's probably because he's reportedly sick and didn't travel with the team.
