Injury Report

Alan Anderson (ankle surgery) and Martell Webster (hip) are out. Nene and DeJuan Blair are questionable after missing Wednesday's game against the Heat. Bradley Beal should be back after missing Wednesday's game for rest.

The Raptors are injury-free at the moment. Must be nice.

Storylines we're watching

Can the bench recover after Wednesday's performance? The starters dominated in Wednesday's game against Miami, but with so many players out, the Wizards couldn't do what they wanted with the second-unit. With Nene and DeJuan Blair out, Drew Gooden was logging minutes at center, which just isn't an ideal situation.

If guys like Nene need to take tonight off to make sure they're ready for the start of regular season action, by all means, take the night off, but if they can go, it would be nice to see the real second unit get some more reps tonight.

How will Garrett Temple respond after experiencing the luxurious toilets at the Montreal Ritz-Carlton? The NBA preseason gives players rare opportunities to travel to cities off the beaten path, like Montreal, for games. Garrett Temple is taking full advantage of his surroundings:

The thing that makes Garrett Temple great is he's such a down-to-earth guy. Will he be spoiled by all the luxury in Montreal, or will this visit serve as a self-esteem boost? Only time will tell.
