The Washington Wizards pulled off a major trade on Thursday, then went out and beat the New Orleans Hornets on the road. Their road trip continues on Friday in Atlanta against the Hawks. The game starts at 7:30 and can be found on CSN.
The Wizards will likely be short-handed for the second straight night as it is unlikely that Nene will make it to Atlanta to make it in time for the game. We don't know for sure, but we will have that update as soon as it is made available. The Hawks don't have a lot of interior depth that will punish the Wizards, so this is a good matchup for a team that is temporarily without a center.
