The Washington Wizards already know that they'll be without two starters as they pay a visit to the San Antonio Spurs tonight at 7:00 PM. Andray Blatche and JaVale McGee are both suspended for the game due to conduct detrimental to the team. This means that the Wizards will be missing their leading scorer (Blatche with 16.8 points per game) and leading rebounder (McGee with 8.3 rebounds per game).
But will Washington also be without their leader? John Wall has missed the previous five games for the Wizards and is said to be a game-time decision for tonight. The point guard participated in morning shootaround, but coach Flip Saunders did not want to make a decision on his rookie until just before the opening whistle.
The Spurs are coming off a 123-101 loss to Gilbert Arenas' Orlando Magic. Can Arenas' former team knock off the Western Conference stalwarts tonight as well? Follow along in this StoryStream and you'll find out. Or chat along with SB Nation's Wizards blog Bullets Forever.
The game will be broadcast locally on Comcast SportsNet.
