Impact: Gortat posted one of the weirdest and ineffective lines of the season, totaling exactly two in points, rebounds, assists, steals, blocks and fouls on Saturday. He's seen his minutes dip slightly this season (29 minutes per game) but has still been reasonably effective, averaging 11.8 points per game and eight rebounds on the season. Gortat is still a starting center in most formats.

Impact: Wall endured 45 minutes of action in Saturday's overtime loss to the Raptors, posting 28 points (8-16 FG, 1-3 3PT, 11-15 FT) to go along with 12 dimes and eight boards. He's dealing with a minor Achilles injury, but that mixed with severe headaches and a cold may put his Monday status in jeopardy.

News: Hilario (foot) is starting Saturday against the Raptors.
Impact: Hilario sat out the Wizards' last game Wednesday as a result of discomfort in his right foot. However, with three days between contests, he should replicate his averages of 11.1 points (on 52 percent shooting), 5.2 rebounds, two assists, and 1.2 steals in 25 minutes per outing.
