The Washington Wizards will take on the Philadelphia 76ers tonight at 7 p.m. ET. You can watch the game on NBC Sports Washington locally. And nationally, it’s on NBA TV. If you need to listen to the game on the radio, it’s on 1500 AM or the Wizards app locally. Nationally, it’s on SiriusXM.
My hope is that the Wizards put forth another strong effort tonight, now that Joel Embiid is out due to a meniscus tear. Washington was able to win one game without the superstar center last Monday so it’s possible that they could get one more win tonight.
Sixers center Joel Embiid has a small meniscus tear in his right knee and will be day-to-day, team says. He's out for Game 5 tonight.— Adrian Wojnarowski (@wojespn) June 2, 2021
As I said earlier today, a win tonight isn’t going to change the big offseason question surrounding the Wizards: What’s the plan?
But now that the Wizards are in the playoffs and have a win under their belts with the Sixers’ best player sidelined at the moment, let’s root for one more victory, shall we?
