John Wall and the Wizards struggled against Charlotte last season, but Friday's focus is on their own issues and not beating the Hornets.
Glen Rice underwent exams for his injured ankle. Wizards coach Randy Wittman doesn't know when the swingman will return, but he provided an update all the same.
The Wizards may try some different looks with their lineups and rotations in Friday's exhibition game vs. the Charlotte Hornets (CSN, 7 p.m. ET).
