It’s WIZARDS GAME DAY!!
And also the return of Rui Hachimura in his season debut. Hachimura was projected to be out for weeks with conjunctivitis but is returning a lot sooner than expected. Head Coach Scott Brooks mentioned he would be on limited minutes playing only about 20 minutes the entire game.
He’ll be in the starting lineup along with Russell Westbrook, Bradley Beal, Deni Avdija and Thomas Bryant. Brooks hasn’t made the best choices in lineups, but it’ll be interesting to see how having Hachimura back can possibly turn things around for the Wizards. It’s definitely needed.
Tonight’s starters. Westbrook, Beal, Hachimura, Avdija, Bryant. Westbrook will not play tomorrow in Minnesota. #DCAboveAll— Chris Miller (@cmillsnbcs) December 31, 2020
Tonight is the second meeting between the two teams, where in the first Chicago got their first win while Washington lost four straight. As always there’s hope they’ll be some changes going forward and the Wizards can possibly get their first win.
The game is scheduled for 5 p.m. ET on NBC Sports Washington.
DC ABOVE ALL!!!
