What’s left of the Wizards will continue the quest for 30 wins as they take on the playoff-bound Brooklyn Nets on Monday at Barclays Center. Nene (foot, knee), Martell Webster (abdominal strain) and Trevor Ariza (left knee) are all sidelined, leaving the Wizards with just 10 healthy players for the final two games.

The Wizards (29-51) are looking to snap a four-game losing streak and a six-game road losing streak while seeking to claim their first victory in Brooklyn. In their last meeting with the Nets, Brooklyn point guard Deron Williams set an NBA record with nine three-pointers in the first half and finished with 42 points as the Wizards lost, 95-78.

The Nets (47-33) have already clinched the fourth seed in the Eastern Conference and will use the final two games as an opportunity to give their star players some much-needed rest. Williams (left knee), Brook Lopez (back), Joe Johnson (left foot), Reggie Evans (left shoulder) and Jerry Stackhouse (neck) will be out against the Wizards.

Tipoff: 7:30 p.m.
