Portland Trail Blazers vs. Washington Wizards: Game preview, time, TV channel, how to watch free live stream online

If the Portland Trail Blazers are going to win a basketball game anytime soon, Saturday night against Washington would be a good time to do it.

The Wizards (29-36) lost Friday night to the LA Lakers and will be without All-Star guard Bradley Beal, who underwent season-ending wrist surgery.

Catching a team second in a streak and without their best player is a perfect situation for a win, even for a Blazers team that has lost its last six games, five in a bang. The center Kristaps Porzingis (maintaining a right knee injury) is also absent.

The Blazers, however, would have to get the job done without guard Anfernee Simons, who underwent an MRI Thursday that revealed mild patellar tendinopathy in his left knee, the team announced Friday.
