How to watch

The game will take place at 8:00 p.m. ET at HP Arena in ESPN’s Wide World of Sports Complex in Orlando, Florida. You can watch the game using NBA League Pass.

What to watch for

There isn’t much to watch for on the Washington side of the ball. The Wizards enter the regular-season restart without Bradley Beal (injury) and Davis Bertans (pending free agency). So two of the Wizards’ top players won’t be in action. Rui Hachimura is the player to watch for Washington. The rookie was impressive in the first scrimmage and looks to be the go-to scorer for the Wiz.

The Clippers will also be missing key players in Patrick Beverley, Lou Williams and Montrezl Harrell. All three are away from the team due to personal reasons. All three are expected to be back in time for the regular-season restart next week. So we should see a lot of Kawhi Leonard, Paul George and Joakim Noah early on for the Clippers in this game.
