Washington preview-The Wizards start a three game road trip, in which after tonight’s game, the team will head to New York and Cleveland. Markieff Morris is a game time decision with a swollen left hand. In the only meeting this season, Washington beat Chicago on New Years Eve, 1114-110, behind Beal’s 39 points, 9 rebounds and 9 assists, as the Wizards outscored the Bulls, 31-21 in the 4th quarter.
Chicago preview-The Bulls rallied from 17 points down to defeat Minnesota, and end there seven game losing streak. Lavine, who had a monster game on Friday night, leads Chicago averaging 17 points a game, but will not play on Saturday night and will rest. A possibility to replace Lavine in the lineup is Kris Dunn, who recently missed time due to dental work, after falling face first onto the court. Noah Vonleh, who was acquired from the Portland Trail Blazers this week in a trade, should make his Bulls debut tonight.
