Pregame Notes

The Washington Wizards are back at it again but at home to face the Atlanta Hawks. Washington just recently, the night before came off a loss to the Milwaukee Bucks, 131-128. The Hawks won the day before Thanksgiving in an overtime battle over the Brooklyn Nets.

While the Hawks are at .500, the Wizards are on paper the second worst team in the league just a half game ahead of the Detroit Pistons. Washington potentially could possibly not make it to 25 wins this season despite the talent this roster has, more importantly the younger talent.

The Wizards may be without Bilal Coulibaly who is dealing with a knee contusion. He was downgraded from questionable to out in the road loss to the Bucks and he may be out for this game as well. Washington will most likely be monitoring the rookie over time. Coulibaly has been averaging 8.4 points per game and 3.6 rebounds.
