Nets Vs. Wizards: John Wall, Wizards Play Early Before West Coast Trip

Wake up, Wizards fans -- and turn off that NCAA Tournament nonsense. There's NBA basketball to be enjoyed over brunch! The Nets are in town with a score to settle in the rubber match of the season series between these two teams. The Wizards won the most recent meeting between the teams, a 97-77 win on Jan. 7.

This time around, both teams enter the contest short-handed. For the Nets, Deron Williams will sit as he nurses an injury on his right wrist. His replacement, Jordan Farmer, should prove far more manageable for Washington. Meanwhile the Wizards are still without Nick Young, Andray Blatche, Rashard Lewis and Josh Howard. Cartier Martin will be back after missing last five games.

For the Wizards, that means more of the youth movement. Trevor Booker and Jordan Crawford have taken advantage of the increased playing time and shots while the Wizards are undermanned. Booker had a career-high 26 points against Toronto on Friday night, while Crawford is averaging 20.4 points over his last five games.
