KNICKS AT WIZARDS, 7 P.M. ET

TV: League Pass

  • New York Knicks coach Mike Woodson said that he expects F Rasheed Wallace to return to practice after the All-Star break. Wallace hasn’t played since Dec. 13 due a sore left foot.  “He’s running around and doing things,” Woodson said. “We’re going to welcome him back as soon as possible.” Wallace said: “It’s not up to me. It’s up to the doctor.”
  • New York C Tyson Chandler will attempt to set a franchise record with four straight games of 20 or more rebounds. Chandler tied the team mark of three, last set by Willis Reed  in Dec. 1969.
  • Washington Wizards G Bradley Beal will miss his fifth straight game with a sprained right wrist.
  • After starting 4-28, the  Wizards are 8-7.  “It’s consistency with our play. I still think from a defensive standpoint is where it starts with us, establishing ourselves early defensively will be important tonight,” coach Randy Wittman said. [The Knicks] can score a lot of points in a number of different ways.”
