WHEN: 6 p.m. Friday.
WHERE: Verizon Center.
BROADCASTS: TV - None. Radio - AM-620.
About the Wizards: Washington is without two of its top starters in point guard John Wall and center Nene, both sidelined by injury. Kevin Seraphin is developing as a productive big man off the bench. Rookie Bradley Beal became the second-youngest player to start at shooting guard in a team's season opener (at 19 years and 124 days), with Kevin Durant the only younger player to do it. Veterans Trevor Ariza and Emeka Okafor have been starting for the Wizards but Seraphin, Martell Webster and Chris Singleton have piled up major minutes in reserve roles. The Wizards played Boston in consecutive games and lost a pair of close decisions, including a 100-94 overtime defeat at TD Garden on Wednesday.
