What you need to know about the Wizards

Washington got off to a 10-3 start this season, but it has struggled to maintain consistency since then. The Wizards are now just one game over the .500 mark following their 124-121 win over Charlotte in their most recent outing. Forward Kyle Kuzma poured in 36 points and grabbed 14 rebounds to lead Washington over the Hornets.

Kuzma has now scored in double figures in six consecutive games, averaging a double-double during that stretch. Washington is currently without guards Spencer Dinwiddie and Raul Neto due to the league’s health and safety protocol. The Wizards have covered the spread in six of their last seven games. 

What you need to know about the Rockets

Houston has now lost eight straight games following its 133-113 loss at Philadelphia on Monday. The Rockets were without centers Alperen Sengun (ankle) and Christian Wood (suspension) in that loss. Guard Kevin Porter Jr. was also serving a one-game suspension following some issues in the second half of a loss to Denver over the weekend. 

The Rockets are expected to have Wood and Porter Jr. back in the lineup on Wednesday night. Wood leads the team with 16.8 points and 10.3 rebounds per game, while Porter Jr. is adding 12.8 points and 5.7 assists. Houston has won 14 of its last 20 games against Washington.
