With rookie Bradley Beal done for the season with a stress injury in his right fibula, the Wizards will look to win their third game in a row and claim the season series against Toronto.
“Another game to go out and do what we need to do. Eight games left,” Coach Randy Wittman said. “I think we’re playing at a high level right now. doing a lot of good things and just maintaining that. We just played these guys and nobody is going to surprise anybody with what’s going on out there. It’s about coming out and establishing ourselves.”
Beal had 24 points and matched his career-high with six three-pointers when the teams met on Sunday at Verizon Center. The Wizards have only one the season series against one other Eastern Conference team – Milwaukee, which currently has the eighth spot for the playoffs.
