What to watch for:

  1. Troy Brown Jr. is getting his shot with the Wizards after spending the first half of the year in the G-league and deep down the bench. The Wizards’ 2018 first-round draft pick is coming off his first two starts and could be in line for his third against the Lakers. He’s averaged 10 points in those two games.

  3. LeBron James may reportedly be on a minutes restrictions, but he is still LeBron James. Never miss a chance to see to one of the sport’s all-time greatest players.
