Wizards head coach Scott Brooks announced that John Wall will not play tonight against the Magic due to rest, while Otto Porter will not play due to a hip strain.

Tonight is the regular season finale, so in most cases, it may not matter who the Wizards play tonight, win or lose. But the reality is that the Wizards are essentially playing for their playoff seed, which could range from sixth to eighth. The Magic are out of the playoff race, so there isn’t much to play for tonight in theory. But tonight, they may just have found something to play for despite their injuries.
