On Friday, January 29th the Atlanta Hawks face the Washington Wizards for the team’s first meeting of the 2020-21 season.
Last season, the teams played three times with the Wizards taking two to the three contests. The Hawks hold the all-time advantage winning 156 of their 305 meetings.
The Hawks are starting to get a few players back and they are adding to the offensive punch for Atlanta. They led for much of he match versus the Nets scoring 132 points but succumbed in overtime.
Trae Young continues to struggle with his 3-point efficiency but led the way for the Hawks registering a double-double of 28 points and 14 assists.
Cam Reddish (24), John Collins (21), De’Andre Hunter (21), Kevin Huerter (11), and Danilo Gallinari (11) were the other double-figure contributors.
Clint Capela (hand) and Onyeka Okongwu (Achilles soreness) are both probable to play on Friday. Rajon Rondo (ankle) and Cam Reddish (quad contusion) are questionable.
Two main offseason additions remain out with Kris Dunn (ankle) is yet to make his season debut but is slated to return mid-February. Bogdan Bogdanovic is out indefinitely with a right knee fracture.
The first quarter of the 2020-21 season has not been very positive for the Washington Wizards as they sit with the worst record in the NBA.
Despite Bradley Beal leading the league in points per game his team simply can’t catch a break. Thomas Bryant suffered a season-ending torn ACL. Russell Westbrook suffered further injury to his quad causing him to lose games.
Beal guarded Jayson Tatum who tested positive for COVID-19 causing the Wizards to put him in quarantine due to contact tracing regulations.
A host of others have dealt with injuries, tested positive themselves, or also had to quarantine due to contact tracing. Scott Brooks hasn’t known from one day to the next how he would have available let alone find time for his team to practice.
In their most recent game, Beal scored 47 points and that still wasn’t enough for the team to net the victory versus the Pelicans.
As rumors fly over how long the shooting guard will stay invested with the Wizards several teams are keeping a close eye on the situation in case Washington finally reaches a point where they’ll entertain trade offers.
The health situation might get a bit of a reprieve on Friday as each of Davis Bertans, Rui Hachimura, and Moritz Wagner are expected to return after missing games due to quarantine.
Deni Avdija, Troy Brown Jr., and Ish Smith are expected to remain out due to the health and safety protocols. Bryant is gone for the season.

Free Atlanta Hawks vs. Washington Wizards NBA Prediction:
The Hawks will be keen to grab the win with the Lakers, Mavericks, Jazz, and Raptors on tap for their next four matches.
Meanwhile, the Wizards have a single win at home and need to the victory if for no other reason than to show Beal they appreciate how committed he is to them.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Hawks ATS
Like Young, the Hawks haven’t exactly lit up the perimeter this season shooting 35.3 percent. Washington allows teams to shoot 38.2 percent from deep.
In a match that’s bound to be based entirely on offense that doesn’t bode well for the Wizards.
