Wizards seek normalcy on the road at Rockets

When the Washington Wizards finally returned to action following a prolonged absence linked to league health and safety protocols, there was no expectation for anything resembling normalcy.

In their 121-101 road loss against the San Antonio Spurs, the Wizards were without six players still in protocol and were playing for the first time since Jan. 11. In the interim, the Wizards had six consecutive games postponed, and against the Spurs featured two bigs recently signed off the street: Alex Len and Jordan Bell. Given those circumstances, the results were predictable.

On Tuesday, the Wizards will look to inch closer to a normal routine when they face the Houston Rockets at Toyota Center. They will remain woefully shorthanded more than likely, but perhaps the opportunity to resume a regular schedule will offer something closer to the familiar. Maybe.
