ATLANTA – Martell Webster (sorained left ankle) will be back in the starting lineup but Nene (sore right Achilles’) and Bradley Beal (right fibula) will remain sidelined as the Wizards look to snap a 10-game losing streak in Atlanta when they take on the Hawks on Friday at Philips Arena.

Washington (9-11) has lost the past two games overall and has yet to win a game this season in four tries without Nene. The Wizards lost their past two games by a combined five points and are 3-3 this season in games decided by five points or fewer.

The Hawks (11-11) have gone 2-2 since losing to the Wizards, 108-101, on Nov. 30 at Verizon Center. Kyle Korver and Lou Williams will both be available after sitting out the last meeting.
