Washington Wizards Injury Report
Clippers vs Wizards News and Preview
This is the first meeting between these interconference rivals. Last season, the two-game series was split into 1.
The Wizards will be looking for a rebound win tonight after suffering a big loss at the hands of the Boston Celtics and Jason Tatum’s remarkable 51 points on Sunday night at Capital One Arena.
Washington has struggled lately and has only 1 win in their last 5 games and is currently on a 3 game losing streak. They will hope that Bradley Beal can get the team back to winning ways with a big performance. Beal leads the Wizards in points per game, averaging just 24 points. Along with his 24 points, Beal leads the team in assists averaging more than 6 per game.
Washington currently occupies the last of the Play-in spots with a record identical to that of the New York Knicks.
The Los Angeles Clippers are approaching the halfway point of their 7-game East road trip, with this being Game 3 for them.
In their last game, the Clippers lost 110-102 to the New York Knicks at MSG. Reggie Jackson was the best scorer in that one with 26 points on 55% shooting from the field and finished 4/8 from beyond the arc.
Alarmingly for the Clippers, no player who played against the Knicks finished with a +/- positive. Amir Coffey had a team under -10
Los Angeles is on a losing streak right now. They have just 2 wins in the last 5 games and are 4-6 in the last 10 games. As it stands, the Clippers rank ninth in the West, 0.5 behind their Los Angeles rival Los Angeles Lakers, who rank eighth.

Predicción Clippers vs Wizards
Washington will know a win here is needed to keep pushing for a postseason spot. The Clippers, on the other hand, will know they are just a couple of wins away from jumping into the top 6 and an automatic playoff spot.
This is going to be a tough game for the Clippers who are on a grueling road trip and facing a team looking for a big win after an embarrassing loss at home on Sunday.
The ESPN Matchup Predictor has struggled for a Clippers vs Wizards prediction. ESPN predicts a home win, albeit marginally. At 54.8%, it’s clear that most see this as a close contest that could go either way. Given the Clippers’ injury report, without Kawhi and Paul George, I think the Wizards could sneak into this one.
