The Washington Wizards kick off the season tonight on the road in Philadelphia where the 76ers will await them. The game is slated to begin at 7 p.m. ET airing on NBC Sports Washington.

The Wizards start off the season with only one major injury and that’s to Rui Hachimura who will be out for at least three weeks with an eye infection in both eyes. It’ll be interesting to see the rotations at the power forward spot as they’ll need to for at minimum 13-15 games give it take.

Despite the 76ers being the heavy favorites to win tonight, Washington has a few keys they want to excel at so that they’ll come out victorious in the end.

Make sure to let us know in the comments what your predictions are for tonight’s matchup. And how do you feel about the starters for tonight: Russell Westbrook, Bradley Beal, Deni Avdija, Isaac Bonga and Thomas Bryant.
