Alright, we are just two days away from the Wizards’ game against the New York Knicks in London, United Kingdom. Washington will be the home team in Thursday’s contest.

Here are some pictures of the Wizards arriving in London earlier this morning.

The team practiced of course. Yes, there’s a five hour time difference between London and Washington, but a quick practice after arrival is the best way to deal with the jet lag.

There were a fair number of jersey swaps as well with players from the English Premier League.

The Wizards also learned some British phrases like “take the biscuit when I’m hungry.”

The Wizards ate dinner at Kensington Palace which is the official home of Prince William and Catherine, the Duchess of Cambridge as well as Prince Harry and Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex. So that had to be an interesting experience.

Though the Wizards are having a good time in the UK, the Knicks will be without one of their own. Enes Kanter is sitting out due to visa issues and also because he feels that he would be unsafe outside the United States and Canada. Kanter wrote a column in The Washington Post today on his situation.
