The Washington Wizards (4-6 SU, 4-5-1 ATS, 4-6 O/U) take on the Charlotte Hornets (3-7 SU, 4-5-1 ATS, 5-4-1 O/U) from the Spectrum Center in North Carolina at 7pmET on Monday.
Final Injury Report Hornets – Wizards
Wizards injury reports include many names including: Vernon Carey Jr., Johnny Davis, Jordan Schakel, Isaiah Todd, and Delon Wright.
Brandley Beal ( day-to-day)
Beal may miss two games even if he has only minor or no symptoms of the virus. Following Sunday’s game, the Wizards will play the second half of a back-to-back set in Charlotte on Monday, so Beal may have difficulty obtaining clearance to play against the Hornets in the next 24 hours.
Injuries are unavoidable in sports, as the Charlotte Hornets are experiencing right now.
Where do the Charlotte Hornets stand in terms of injuries after just over two weeks?
LaMelo Ball – Ankle Sprain
The injury to LaMelo Ball was initially thought to be a one or two week one, but it now appears to be on the longer end of that time frame.

Cody Martin – Quad Soreness: Cody Martin has not played since injuring himself in Charlotte’s season opener on October 19th. Quad injuries are difficult to recover from, and they can last a long time depending on the severity of the initial injury.
Terry Rozier – Ankle Sprain: Terry Rozier is still nursing an ankle sprain from his game against the New Orleans Pelicans.
The Charlotte Hornets obviously want their key players back on the field, but they must also view these injuries in the long term.
While having Ball, Rozier, Hayward, and Martin on the floor would undoubtedly help Charlotte win games, they must also be rested until they are ready to play again.
Meanwhile, Kelly Oubre Jr., P.J. Washington, and others are expected to step up and carry the load.
Gordon Hayward has been injured yet again. Hayward left the Chicago Bulls game at halftime on Wednesday after appearing shaken up against the Sacramento Kings the night before.
