ATLANTA HAWKS VS. WASHINGTON WIZARDS NEWS AND NOTES
The Wizards are getting a bit healthier, but they’re just not a very good basketball team. Rui Hachimura and Davis Bertans are expected to return to the lineup vs. the Hawks, which definitely bolsters their rotation. They’ve been playing guys like Isaac Bonga, Kendall Gill, and Jordan Bell big minutes recently, and Hachimura and Bertans are both competent NBA players.
Bertans in particular has had a nice impact when on the court this season, with the team increasing their Net Rating +13.6 points per 100 possessions.
However, it seems very unlikely that either Bertans or Hachimura takes on a big role right out of the gates. Neither player has suited up since January 11th, which means both players will likely need to get their conditioning up following a long stint in the league’s health and safety protocols.
Meanwhile, the Hawks have quietly been rolling recently. They’ve won four of their past six games, and their two losses came to the Bucks and Nets. Those are the two best teams in the Eastern Conference, and the Hawks still managed to take the Nets to overtime.
The Hawks have beaten up on inferior opponents during that stretch. They beat the Clippers, Pistons, and Timberwolves twice, and each of those wins came by at least eight points. They should have no problems dismantling the Wizards, who have wasted a prime year from Bradley Beal.
