This is the first meeting with the Hawks, but that doesn’t mean much as the Wizards are 1-8 when going up against Eastern Conference opponents. Washington sits 3-11 overall this season. Yikes!
The Wizards still don’t have their full roster back yet, but a few have will return tonight. Washington’s starting lineup will consist of Russell Westbrook, Bradley Beal, Jerome Robinson, Rui Hachimura and Robin Lopez. Head Coach Scott Brooks’ choices when it comes to the lineups has been suspect all season so it’ll be interesting to see his reasoning for putting Robinson in the starting five tonight.
Game time is scheduled for 7 p.m. ET and to be televised on NBC Sports Washington.
DC ABOVE ALL!!! And stay warm!!
