Monday, May 10th the Washington Wizards take on the Atlanta Hawks for the first of two consecutive games. In the clubs’ initial meeting of the season on January 29th, the Hawks won 116-100.
Entering the match the Wizards have moved ahead of the Pacers into the ninth seed holding a half-game edge while the Hawks have dropped to fifth with the Knicks holding a full game edge over them after beating the Clippers on Sunday.
The Hawks hold the all-time record between the squads with 157 victories in 306 meetings. Last season these clubs played three times with the Wizards taking two of the three contests.
Overtime was kind to the Wizards this week as they took down the Raptors and Pacers consecutively to not only secure their play-in seed but move up one spot into the ninth seed.
The concern now however is Bradley Beal’s health after he reinjured his hamstring in the match on Saturday. Beal scored 50 points in that overtime victory.

It was the second time in week 20 the Wizards defeated the Pacers. Russell Westbrook recorded his 35th triple-double of the 2020-21 campaign (33 points, 19 rebounds, 15 assists) and 181st all-time to tie Oscar Robertson’s mark.
It seems inevitable Westbrook will get at least one more this season to overtake the Big O and claim that prestigious record.
Rui Hachimura (13) and Davis Bertans (10) were the only other Wizards to score in double-figures in a game where Washington scored 133 points.
Beal will definitely be out on Monday to allow his hamstring to heal and it’s uncertain what his timeframe will be for a return but the onus will be on getting him healthy with the hope he’ll be good to go for the play-in games.
Deni Avdija has a right fibular hairline fracture in his leg while Thomas Byant tore his ACL. Both players are lost for the season.
After missing 47 games with a knee injury De’Andre Hunter could make his return on Monday night. That would mean only Cam Reddish would definitely be out and potentially Tony Snell both with right Achilles soreness.
The Hawks have shown their youth of late losing three in a row on the road then following it up with three wins in a row at home. Their most recent match was a road game in Indy that they lost.
Considering how busy most teams schedules are in these closing games it’s interesting the Hawks have been off since Thursday so they’ll have three full days rest on their side entering this match.
In the loss to the Pacers, Trae Young registered a double-double of 30 points and 10 assists, Bogdan Bogdanovic scored 28 while John Collins added 25 points.
Bogdan Bogdanovic (left hamstring soreness) is probable.

Free Washington Wizards vs. Atlanta Hawks NBA Prediction:
Russell Westbrook will try to pick up the slack of not having Beal but the Wizards have to be tired after a full week of games that pushed them to consecutive overtimes. Still, Young will need someone to help him with Russ because his defense is suspect at the best of times and Westbrook is on a mission.
