2. Miller vs. Sessions head-to-head

Check out how the two compare to each other and exactly where Sessions fits in among his new teammates in specific areas of the game.

3. What the Wizards did during All Star break

The NBA gave its players a couple extra days to relax during the All Star break, and the WIzards took advantage of it, with some heading out of the country to truly relax in warm, sunny locations.

4. No timetable for Bradley Beal's return

Beal is expected to have his leg checked out today in order to get a better feeling about when he could return to running on the court with his teammates. His toe is apparently better, though we should know more today about the stress injury to his leg that has sidelined him numerous times throughout his brief NBA career.

5. Wizards host Cavaliers tonight on ESPN

As the Wizards (33-21) flounder, struggling to hang onto a top-4 seed in the Eastern Conference, the Cleveland Cavaliers (33-22) are on a meteoric rise in the standings, soon to push past the Wizards if the teams continue in their current forms. In their last 10 games, the Cavs have an 8-2 record. As for the Wizards? They're just 4-6 in their last 10.

Tip off is set for 8 p.m. You can watch on ESPN or Comcast SportsNet. The game can also be heard on the radio on 99.1 WNEW.
