Washington may not have all of its players healthy for Tuesday's game, but Los Angeles is expected to have just 10 available.
The NBA begins another season with three matchups on opening night. Some highlights from around the courts:
Steve Nash needed three injections for pain relief on the Los Angeles Lakers' day off. He's still more likely to play in Game 3 on Friday night than Steve Blake or Jodie Meeks.
Trevor Ariza hit a career-high seven 3-pointers on his way to 25 points, and John Wall added 24 points and 16 assists in helping the Wizards rally from an 18-point second-half deficit to win 103-100 on Friday night.
If the Washington Wizards had any chance to steal a victory, Friday at Verizon Center might have been the night. The Wizards were hosting the Los Angeles Lakers, who were on the second night of a back-to-back, after an embarrassing 116-107 loss to the New York Knicks in a game that wasn't as close as the final score.
The Washington Wizards knew exactly what kind of opponent they were facing in the Philadelphia 76ers, after losing a home-and-home preseason series by a combined total of 32 points.
It's clearly the signature highlight so far in this Miami Heat postseason. LeBron James taking off on the fast break, reaching more than a foot above the rim, controlling a perfect lob from Mario Chalmers and delivering a powerful one-handed dunk.
Jrue Holiday scored 20 points, Thaddeus Young had 18 points and 10 rebounds and the Philadelphia 76ers beat the Washington Wizards 117-94 on Wednesday night.
