The Wizards are dealing with a wide array of injuries that could make for some interesting lineups against the Knicks. They are without John Wall, who continues to nurse a left knee injury, and have two point guards monitoring head injuries. Tomas Satoransky bumped his head on the floor in the Wizards' win over the Bulls on Saturday night and his backup Tim Frazier broke his nose. Frazier required surgery and it's unclear if either will play.
That's just the point guard position. Markieff Morris missed Saturday's game with an illness and Ian Mahinmi left the game sick. Jason Smith caught it and missed Monday's practice. With Bradley Beal out due to rest, the Wizards had only seven players to practice with.
Last game before the break
The Wizards only have to get through one more game before they get some much-needed time off with the 2018 All-Star break. Like every team, they hope to enter the break on a high note. If the Wizards can take out the Knicks, they will go into it having won seven of nine games since Wall got hurt. That would be quite good. Even going 6-3 would be impressive.
If the Wizards can beat New York, they will go to the break with a 33-24 record, equal to about a 47-win pace. They won 49 games last year, so that's pretty good and especially considering all the injuries they have dealt with this season.
Knicks are in a free fall
The Knicks were dealt a devastating blow just over a week ago when superstar Kristaps Porzingis suffered a torn ACL in a game on Feb. 6. Things already weren't going well for New York and this absolutely crushed them. They have lost all three of their games since he went down and 20 of their last 26 overall.
Without Porzingis, the Knicks are not very impressive in the scoring department. They have to rely on Tim Hardaway, Jr. (16.2 ppg), Enes Kanter (14.2 ppg), Courtney Lee (13.2 ppg) and then of course Michael Beasley (12.8 ppg). It's going to be a long rest of the season for the Knicks as they get set for the lottery.
