The Miami Heat host the Washington Wizards in a match-up between two struggling East teams that are shorthanded.

Washington has lost five straight on the road and they’ll be without All-Star guard Russell Westbrook tonight due to rest. They lost to the Portland Trail Blazers last night at home despite Westbrook’s triple-double with 17 points, 12 rebounds and 10 assists.

The Heat are 5-6 at home while the Wizards are 2-6 away.
