Wall, Wizards to be without Nene vs. Suns
Nene is expected to miss his fourth-straight game for the Wizards, who will host the Suns tonight at 7:00PM ET.
Nene has been dealing with a calf injury and sat out Wednesday versus the Lakers. The Wizards will also be without center Marcin Gortat, who left the team on Thursday due to a family emergency and will miss at least the next two games.
According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI, the Wizards are now 1-point home underdogs for tonight's game against the Suns. Washington opened as a 1-point favorite and despite 57% of public bettors backing the Wizards to cover, the line jumped the fence.
It'll be interesting to see how John Wall fares tonight. He's produced back-to-back 30-point performances but the Suns feature a backcourt of Brandon Knight and Eric Bledsoe, who can take turns defending him.
