Wizards Host Anthony, Knicks in Pre-Season Clash

The Washington Wizards host their lone game of the pre-season tonight versus Carmelo Anthony and the New York Knicks. The Wizards finished with the league's second worst record (20-46) last season and opened pre-season play with a 100-88 loss to Charlotte on Sunday.

Tonight's game will provide Wizards fans with their first glimpse of first round pick Bradley Beal, as well as new arrivals Trevor Ariza and Martell Webster. Unfortunately, we won't see fellow addition Emeka Okafor (stomach virus) or holdovers NenĂª (foot) and John Wall (knee) who are all out due to injuries. Wall is expected to be out until late November. I can't wait to see what the Wiz look like with a full lineup.

The Wizards don't play again in DC until Saturday, November 3, when they host the Boston Celtics in their regular season home opener. For individual and season ticket information, click here.
