The Wizards have won their past two meetings with the Orlando Magic and have their only opportunity to win season series against a Southeast Division opponent this season on Friday at Amway Center. They are 2-1 against the Magic but have gone 1-3 against Charlotte; 1-3 against Atlanta and 1-2 against Miami.

In John Wall’s second game since returning from a stress injury in his left knee, the Wizards recorded their most lopsided win of the season, 120-91, on Jan. 14 at Verizon Center. They also defeated the Magic, 105-97, on Dec. 28, but they have lost five in a row in Orlando and have not won on the road against Orlando since Feb.5, 2010, when the team played at the nearby Amway Arena.

Rookie Bradley Beal, who starred in Gainesville at Florida, will miss his fifth consecutive game – and 10 of 12 overall – with a sprained left ankle. Nene (sore right knee) will miss his third in a row. A.J. Price (groin), Martell Webster (abdominal strain), Trevor Ariza (flu) and Jason Collins (flu) are all available.

Tipoff: 7 p.m.
