The Washington Wizards play the Atlanta Hawks on the road tonight at 7:30 p.m. ET. Watch the game on Monumental Sports Network. This the first time the teams have played each other since Dec. 31, 2023 when the Wizards lost at home to the Hawks, 130-126.
Last minute info from shootaround
Trae Young has a contusion, but he will still likely play tonight.
And for the Wizards, Johnny Davis is out due to a non-covid illness.
And for your fashion-critiquing pleasure, check out the outfits the Wizards wore on the way into State Farm Arena.
In the last 10 years, men have generally started wearing tighter jeans and pants. Basketball shorts have also gotten shorter for both men and women. Now, check out Deni Avdija and Jordan Poole. They are both wearing pants with the fit that I did back in the late 1990s and 2000s when I was in high school and my early years in college.
So … are baggier basketball uniforms back on the horizon?
What are the odds?
At 10 a.m. ET, I posted them here. But the Wizards are underdogs to the Hawks. That’s to be expected when they are the second worst team in the NBA. The odds are from DraftKings SportsBook, one of SB Nation’s partners. Please gamble responsibly.
