Wizards vs. Magic preview: Bradley Beal ruled out of Wednesday's game

The Washington Wizards will look to end a four-game losing streak on Wednesday night against the Orlando Magic.


The Washington Wizards (3-19) will begin a two-game road trip when the team challenges their Southeast Division rivals the Orlando Magic (11-13) on Wednesday night.

Currently in the midst of a four-game losing streak, Washington has lost six of its last seven and has allowed its opponents to score at least 100 points in five of the games during that span. Dwelling in the cellar of the division, the Wizards trail the Miami Heat by 13 games for first-place.

Washington currently has a 1-6 record against division opponents.

Orlando will be entering the game on a three-game winning streak and has managed to win four of its last five games. Currently sitting six games back of Miami for the division lead, the Magic will look to improve their 1-2 record against division opponents.

Late Wednesday, the Wizards announced that rookie Bradley Beal would miss the game against Orlando with a sore lower back. Beal missed part of Tuesday's 100-95 overtime loss to the Hawks after taking a hard fall while going up for a dunk, though he later returned to the game.

Wednesday night's game is scheduled to begin at 7 p.m., ET and will be televised locally on Comcast SportsNet.
