What you need to know about the Wizards

Washington didn’t have too much trouble with the Orlando Magic on the road this past Saturday as it won 104-92. The Wizards’ center Montrezl Harrell did his thing and had 20 points and seven assists in addition to six rebounds. Spencer Dinwiddie led the team with 23 points and 11 rebounds, while also dishing out six assists.

Washington will be severely shorthanded on Monday with leading scorer Bradley Beal (personal) out. Also missing for the Wizards is forward Davis Bertans (ankle), as well as Thomas Bryant (knee) and Rui Hachimura (not with team), both of whom haven’t played yet this season. With all of these absences, the team will rely more on newcomers like Harrell and Dinwiddie, in addition to Kyle Kuzma who is averaging 15.0 points and 9.2 rebounds this season.

What you need to know about the Pelicans

Meanwhile, while not quite a landslide, the game between New Orleans and the Memphis Grizzlies this past Saturday was still a pretty decisive one as New Orleans wrapped it up with a 112-101 victory at home. The top scorers for New Orleans were shooting guard Nickeil Alexander-Walker (21 points) and small forward Brandon Ingram (19 points). Rookie Herb Jones also had a nice game off the bench with a career-high of 17 points to go along with six rebounds.

The only major injury for New Orleans is a big one, and that is to its best player in Zion Williamson (foot). But with his absence, new addition Jonas Valanciunas has been able to flourish in the paint as he’s posting career-highs in points (19.6), rebounds (13.5) and assists (2.7). But the Pelicans still need more effort from all players on the defensive end as they rank 27th in points allowed and 28th in field-goal percentage allowed.
