New, comments

After losing two in a row at home, the Wizards look to right the ship against the Heat

Isaiah J. Downing-USA TODAY Sports

The Wizards last played the Heat on January 3, when they lost 97-75 to their Southeast Division rivals. Since then, Washington went on a four-game win streak though they have lost two in a row at home. The Heat, on the other hand,have lost five of their last six games.

Both teams will be looking to right the ship on Wednesday as they head toward the second half of the season.

Date and Time

Wednesday, January 20, 2015 at 7 p.m. ET in the Verizon Center.

TV and Radio

If you're a television watcher in the D.C. area, tune to CSN Mid-Atlantic. If you're in Miami (or your name's Kelly Cohen), tune to Fox Sports Sun. On the radio, it's on 99.1 WNEW-FM in the D.C. area and 790 the Ticket in Miami. Tune to 710-AM for a Spanish Language feed.

If you aren't in either of these areas, you can watch the game on TV or stream it online via NBA League Pass.

Injury Report

For the Wizards, Drew Gooden (calf), Otto Porter (hip), Kris Humphries (knee) will be out, according to J. Michael of CSN Mid-Atlantic.

Alan Anderson is probably going to be out as well though he's working out:

For the Heat, Goran Dragic (calf), Josh McRoberts (knee), and Chris Andersen (knee) will be out, according to Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel. Beno Udrih (neck) is also unlikely to play.

Projected Wizards Killer of the Night: Tyler Johnson

With Dragic out and Udrih doubtful for Wednesday, Johnson is the Heat's next best bet for being a Wizards Killer. In two games vs. Washington, Johnson averaged 50 percent of his threes (3-of-6 attempts). He has also played at least 28 minutes in each of Miami's last five games, which will give him more chances to pad his stats.
