Caron Butler again tested out his sprained left ankle before gametime, but was unable to give it ago. He’ll miss his third straight game, and as with the first two games, Nick Young will get the start for Washington at shooting guard. In two games as a starter, Young has averaged 9.0 points and 3.0 rebounds in 22.0 minutes of action a night.
