WHEN: 6 p.m. Tuesday.

WHERE: Verizon Center.

ABOUT THE WIZARDS: Bradley Beal hurt the Bucks with 26 points and sank 4 of 5 three-point tries in the fourth quarter as the Wizards rallied from a 10-point deficit to win, 118-113, on Oct. 30 in Milwaukee. But the Wizards shooting guard missed practice Monday with a shoulder injury and has been sidelined the last two games. Garrett Temple started in Beal's place in a 108-99 victory over Orlando on Saturday and tied a career high with 18 points on 5-of-10 shooting. "He's always ready," Wizards coach Randy Wittman said of Temple. "That's why you love having guys like that." Washington snapped a three-game skid by beating the Magic. Former Bucks and San Antonio Spurs guard Gary Neal started in Beal's place in a loss to Oklahoma City.
