Coming off back-to-back losses to the Bulls, the Wizards don't have to wait very long to try and rid themselves of an 0-5 start.
In their first game of 2021, Washington travels to Minnesota to take on D'Angelo Russell and the Timberwolves, who also feature No. 1 overall pick Anthony Edwards.
The Timberwolves are 2-2 on the year with losses to the Lakers and Clippers. They beat the Pistons in their season opener and secured an impressive win over the Jazz the day after Christmas.
Minnesota will be without superstar big man Karl-Anthony Towns, who's week-to-week after dislocating his wrist in the second game of the season. Without Towns in the picture, the Wizards will catch a major break on the defensive end.
