Wizards Vs. Raptors: John Wall A Game-Time Decision As Washington Looks For First Road Win

Amid all the drama of more Gilbert Arenas trade talks, the Washington Wizards actually have a game to play tonight. It's against the mediocre Toronto Raptors in Toronto at 7 p.m.

The Wizards will be looking for their first road win of the season, and the Raptors are as good a chance as any. Toronto is a half a game better than the Wizards at 6-11, but they also were the opponent in Washington's easiest win of the season back on November 16. The Raptors didn't compete defensively, allowing Washington to roll to a 15-point win that wasn't really that close.

The big question for the Wizards continues to be John Wall's status. For the five zillionth game in a row (slight exaggeration), Wall is listed as a game-time decision. He did participate in the morning shootaround session, so you'd think his chances of playing are better than usual. If he plays, the question becomes what happens to a backcourt rotation that has functioned without him in recent games.

Hilton Armstrong will not play, as he was suspended for one game for his shove of Joel Anthony in the team's loss to the Miami Heat.
