Al Jefferson is going to want to prove something to Marcin Gortat, who held him to six points in the first meeting. Live coverage of Wizards-Bobcats now on CSN!
The Wizards may have lost to the Heat in their last game, but they feel good about how they competed and had a chance to win late despite bad shooting and ball-handling.
Once Drew Gooden's second 10-day contract expires March 18, the surprising three-point shooting big man will be retained for the rest of the season.
The Wizards could have more size to deal with Al Jefferson if Kevin Seraphin's right knee holds up after Tuesday's session.
This isn't the same team that the Wizards routed 97-83 in January with the addition of Towson's Gary Neal to strengthen the bench.
