The Wizards have started out the all star break in a slump. After going 0 - 3 this week in the state of New York, Washington is looking to get back on track against the lowly Pistons. Can they make it happen? Join the conversation.

The Wizards have had a rough week. After losing to the Nets and twice to the Knicks, the Wizards are looking for any momentum to get their season going back in the right direction. You can watch the game at 7:30 p.m. ET on NBC Sports Washington, or listen to the game on 1500 AM/Wizards mobile app/SiriusXM.

Newly acquired Daniel Gafford and Chandler Hutchison are available to play tonight, but it is unknown how many minutes they will play, or if they will play at all. Despite that, the Wizards are heavy favorites to win this game.

Can the Wizards win a game that they are expected to, against the NBA’s worst, Detroit Pistons? While Washington has defeated many of the league’s top teams, they haven’t had as much luck against other sub-.500 opponents.

With 29 games left in the season, the Wizards will need to get on a run soon to get into the playoff picture, or else they will fall short of preseason expectations. Can they turn it around tonight?
