Pregame Notes

The Washington Wizards are on a three-game losing streak, with surprising their last win coming against the Detroit Pistons on Tuesday March 7. The Pistons have a host of injuries on the report, but the way Washington has been playing they could easily lose a winnable game. The Wizards have particularly a healthy squad with just Taj Gibson on the injury report who is day-to-day with an illness.

The Wizards, after their most recent loss to the Philadelphia 76ers, are now 12th in the Eastern Conference. At this rate they’re on a first class ticket to the off-season with a quickness if they continue with the losses. However, Washington only is a half game behind being back in the play-in tournament as a 10th seed. Things could be a bit last minute as the season comes to a close.
