On the third night of the NBA preseason, we are set for a six-game slate. We’re two days into the preseason schedule and injuries are already starting to pile up around the league. Most of it is generally precautionary, but there are a few notables for the Washington Wizards in their opener against the Brooklyn Nets. Bradley Beal is not expected to play for the Wiz on Sunday evening. Jerome Robinson may also be held out and rookie Deni Avdija is dealing with a banged up knee. We’ll try and keep track of injuries and lineup news throughout the day for the preseason slate.
