Wednesday, January 2 finds the Atlanta Hawks facing the. Washington Wizards as they meet for the third time in the 2018-19 regular season. The Hawks last played on Monday versus the Pacers in a loss. Meanwhile, the Wizards have been resting since Saturday following a loss to the Hornets.
Last season, the teams split their four game season series and through two games have split this year’s matches. The Hawks hold the all-time record having bested the Wizards in 154 of their 300 matches.
Atlanta’s core group of youngsters all delivered in the eight point loss to Indiana. John Collins led the way with a double-double of 22 points and 13 rebounds.
Likewise, Kevin Huerter scored 22 points and was especially hot from the perimeter connecting on six of his nine 3-point attempts.
Trae Young put up an impressive stat line with 16 points, 7 assists, 4 rebounds and he hit three perimeter shots out of his four attempts.
Justin Anderson (flu) returned for the Pacers match but Dewayne Dedmon (left knee soreness) was still out of the lineup and listed as questionable for this match.
Longer term injuries were sustained by Kent Bazemore (sprained right ankle) and Taurean Prince (left ankle ligament sprain, soft tissue inflammation, bone bruise) are expected out until early and mid-January respectively.
With news John Wall is done for the season it will be interesting if Washington elects to have a fire sale or push for the squad to try to get into the playoffs without him.
Bradley Beal and the newly acquired Trevor Ariza will be tasked with carrying the load if the Wizards decide to go for it. In the first game since Wall’s injury news, the duo took charge as leaders on the floor.
Ariza was especially effective with team highs in points (24) and assists (9). Beal contributed 19 points, 5 assists and 4 rebounds. And Thomas Bryant chipped in with a double-double of 21 points and 10 rebounds.
Otto Porter Jr.’s health also remains an issue as he’s missed the last 10 games due to a grade 2 knee sprain, however he’s listed as probable to play this game.
Markieff Morris missed the last two games with an upper back injury and neck stiffness and his status is uncertain for Wednesday.) Dwight Howard (back) is expected to return in late February.
Wall’s heel surgery and recovery are expected to take between six and eight months to heel.
