With two consecutive contests facing the Orlando Magic, the Washington Wizards are back on their road journey. The first match of the two-game miniseries is set for this evening, with the second game coming up on Friday.
The Magic got out to a 12-5 beginning last season and have continued to do so in 2023, placing them in the 3rd spot within the Eastern Conference rankings. They have a 7-2 record in their own stadium, which has allowed them to maintain their lead there. They will try to rely on that during this game. It appears that the Magic’s young core is starting to come into their own as they enter this game having won 7 straight, including victories against several teams that were contenders for the NBA Finals. They will play their 5th consecutive match at home on Wednesday evening, which should boost this team’s confidence as they look for more consistency. Even though this club has suffered some significant injuries, the victories have kept coming. Given that he is still recovering from an injury, Jonathan Isaac’s status regarding his ankle is uncertain.
Washington has had a difficult start to the campaign and, through 17 matches, they are positioned very close to the basement within the Eastern Conference rankings. A 2-8 away record hasn’t made things better and isn’t going to inspire much confidence going into Wednesday’s game. The previous time they played Detroit, they managed to win on the road, but it was probably more due to the persistent problems around the Pistons than to the Wizards making progress. Even though their schedule has proven difficult, they have only won once in their previous 10 games. There are also significant doubts about the organization’s future, particularly as they prepare to travel again for this game. In this game, the Wizards are still dealing with two injuries, both to their backcourt. Due to their knee injuries, Ryan Tollins and Delon Wright will be sidelined for some time, which will affect the guard depth.
