Pregame notes

The Washington Wizards (26-30), who have won two of their last three games, will face the Indiana Pacers (19-39) Wednesday night on the road. It will be their third matchup of the season after splitting games. They last played in December, resulting in a 6-point loss for the Wizards despite Bradley Beal putting up a team-high 34 points. Daniel Gafford and Kyle Kuzma each added 14 points in that game.

Washington is coming off a Monday night win against the Detroit Pistons. Kyle Kuzma led the team with 23 points, which was his second consecutive game where he scored 20-plus points. Off of the bench, Deni Avdija had a double-double with his 12 points and his career-high 15 rebounds. He also added 3 assists.

The Wizards might be without Rui Hachimura, who left Monday night’s game in the second quarter with a right ankle sprain after a flagrant foul from Marvin Bagley III. He had 6 points in just 10 minutes on the floor.

The Wizards will look to go 2-1 against the Pacers on Wednesday and will face them again in March.
