Washington Wizards (14-17)
Injuries: Al Harrington (knee)
Charlotte Bobcats (15-20)
This is the first of four meetings between the two teams, who are both in the Eastern Conference Playoff standings. The Bobcats snapped a five-game skid in Sacramento Saturday, but have struggled defensively following the losses of Kidd-Gilchrist and Taylor.
The Wizards have dropped three straight at home, following losses to Dallas, Toronto, and Golden State. This is the first of a three-game road swing that will conclude in Indiana Friday.
