=== Washington Wizards Team Report – March 17 ===

(Sports Network) – The Washington Wizards try to get back on the winning
track tonight when they welcome the Sacramento Kings at the MCI Center.

Washington comes into tonight’s game on a seven-game losing streak. On
Tuesday, the Wizards lost to the New York Knicks, 114-110, in overtime at
Madison Square Garden.

Gilbert Arenas netted 27 points in Tuesday’s loss for the Wizards, while Kwame
Brown finished with 21 points and Jerry Stackhouse came off the bench to score
23.

On the injury front Juan Dixon sat out the game with left elbow bursitis,
while Jarvis Hayes missed the contest with a hamstring injury. Both players
are questionable for tonight’s affair.

Washington is 5-9 in Wednesday games this season.

The Wizards are 14-20 as the host this season.

Washington has lost three straight and nine of the last 10 contests in this
series. The Kings have also won four of their last five on the Wizards’ home-
court.
