NBA: Washington Wizards at Utah Jazz Russ Isabella-USA TODAY Sports

The Wizards face the Jazz on Wednesday

Game Info

Where & When: Wednesday, January 10, 2018 at Capital One Arena at 7 p.m. ET

TV/Radio: NBC Sports Washington and 1500 AM. You can also stream the audio through the Wizards mobile app or on NBA League Pass if you live outside the Washington area.

Injuries: Sheldon Mac is out for Washington while Chris McCullough is on G-League Assignment. Otto Porter was out the last couple games due to a hip strain, but should be good to go.

For the Jazz, Rudy Gobert (knee) and Dante Exum (shoulder) are out. Derrick Favors had ankle injury and Raul Neto had a knee injury of their own, but they are game time decisions. Favors is more likely to play, however.

Odds

Kevin Broom gives Washington a 60% chance to win tomorrow.

What to watch for

Can Washington keep a “Killer Instinct?”

The Jazz come into this game having lost 9 of their last 12 games. December has just been rough for them. The Wizards have recently have bucked their trend of losing to sub .500 teams, but it can be easy to overlook Utah since Gobert is out and they lost Gordon Hayward in free agency last summer.

Otto Porter SHOULD be back

Porter sat out the last two games due to a hip strain. This should be a good game for him to get himself back in a groove for. But again, everyone has to stay focused.
