The Washington Wizards will hope to extend their four-game winning streak against the Los Angeles Lakers when the two teams meet today at Staples Center. The reigning NBA champions will be without Anthony Davis, Dennis Schroder and four players are listed as probable for the game.
Meanwhile the Wizards will miss two players: Thomas Bryant (left ACL injury – out) and Ish Smith (right quadriceps strain – out), according to NBA.com. Both of their superstars Russell Westbrook and Bradley Beal are good to go.
The Lakers enter the game as the second best team in the Western Conference with 22 wins and 9 losses. On the other hand, the Wizards are struggling this season and find themselves in 13th place in the East with a 10-17 record.
