Cavaliers Vs. Wizards: Washington Faces Cleveland Without John Wall

The Wizards will try to earn their second win this season against the Cavaliers without John Wall on Friday night. Wall will miss the contest because of a one-game suspension, which he received for punching Zydrunas Ilgaukas during Wednesday night's loss to the Heat.

Of course, if Wall had to miss a game, this isn't a bad one to sit out. Cleveland is the worst team in the NBA. They also provided the the first road win of the season for Washington at a time when they were threatening the NBA record for most consecutive road losses to start a season. So, this should be a manageable game at least.

With Wall out, the Wizards will rely heavily on Jordan Crawford, who has bloomed since arriving in D.C. at the trade deadline from Atlanta. Crawford had a career-high 39 points in Wednesday's loss against the Heat.
