Bradley Beal has missed 11 of the past 13 games but will be a game-time decision as the Wizards attempt to win their seventh consecutive home game on Sunday against the Toronto Raptors. Nene remains out with a sore right knee, but the Wizards will have the remaining complement of players as they begin a two-game home stand.

John Wall had a career-high 47 points in the Wizards’ last home game – a 107-94 victory over Memphis – and is coming off a 35-point effort in a loss on Friday to Orlando. The Wizards have lost two in a row overall. They have split the first two games against the Raptors, with both teams winning on their opponent’s floor.

The Raptors won the first meeting on Feb. 19, when the shot clock malfunctioned and rapper Wale got into an exchange with the visiting broadcast crew during a 96-88 decision. The two teams will meet again on Wednesday in Toronto.

The last time the Wizards won seven consecutive home games was when they won 10 in a row from Dec. 13, 2006 to Jan. 20, 2007.
