The Wizards will be looking to get back to winning ways after a disappointing loss against the Philadelphia 76ers in their last game. On the other hand, the Boston Celtics will be seeking their seventh win of the season.
Washington Wizards - Team News
Star point guard Russell Westbrook's dislocated finger is still sore, and head coach Scott Brooks might have to rest him for this match as a precautionary measure. The Washington Wizards have had an injury-free campaign so far, and they will have all their other players available for this game.
Raul Neto might come into the team in place of Westbrook, and Bradley Beal is set to take his place at the shooting guard position.
Doubtful: Russell Westbrook
Boston Celtics - Team News
The Boston Celtics will be thin at the center position against the Washington Wizards. Robert Williams, Tristan Thompson, and Grant Williams face a seven-day quarantine period and will miss this game.
Veteran guard Jeff Teague is listed as questionable, while sophomore Carsen Edwards is on the same boat as the aforementioned center trio. It is safe to say that German big Daniel Theis will have to play close to 40 minutes in this fixture.
Injured: Kemba Walker, Romeo Langford
Doubtful: Jeff Teague
