COACH: Scott Brooks (fourth season).
PROJECTED STARTING FIVE: G Ish Smith (8.9 ppg with Detroit), G Bradley Beal (25.6 ppg), F Rui Hachimura (19.7 ppg with Gonzaga), F Davis Bertans (8.0 ppg with San Antonio), C Thomas Bryant (10.5 ppg).
KEY LOSSES: F Jeff Green, F Trevor Ariza, F Markieff Morris, C Dwight Howard, F Sam Dekker, F Jabari Parker, F Bobby Portis, G Tomas Satoransky.
KEY ADDITIONS: F Rui Hachimura, G Ish Smith, G-F C.J. Miles, F Moe Wagner, G-F Isaac Bonga, F Davis Bertans, G-F Admiral Schofield, G Justin Robinson, G Justin Anderson, G Isaiah Thomas.
PLAYERS TO WATCH: As Washington tries to find a way forward with a mostly new roster after losing 50 games, everyone in a Wizards uniform will be judged for his possible role in the future. The most scrutiny will fall on two players: rookie Rui Hachimura, a first-round draft pick from Gonzaga, and All-Star shooting guard Bradley Beal. With Hachimura, it's about adapting to the pro game and seeing how much potential he has. With Beal, undoubtedly Washington's best player and closest thing now to a transcendent star, it's about whether he can up his level even more ... and where he will attempt to do that. Will he commit to the Wizards and will they build around him? Or will they start over even more completely by trading him?
OUTLOOK: With John Wall out for most, and maybe all, of the season after rupturing his Achilles tendon, plus several other offseason injuries, and a wholesale revamping of the roster under way, new GM Tommy Sheppard knows that there is no point in aiming for any particular win total, let alone the playoffs. So instead of the sort of grand pronouncements about quantifiable goals that were so common with this club in the past, Sheppard is emphasizing the importance of development ' figuring out who can do what and who should be a part of the long-term plan. The Wizards are not going to be very good in 2019-20, but they are hoping this will be the start of moving in the right direction.
COACH: Brad Stevens (seventh season).
PROJECTED STARTING FIVE: G Kemba Walker (25.6 ppg), G Gordon Hayward (11.5), F Jaylen Brown. (13.0), F Jayson Tatum (15.7), C Enes Kanter (13.7)
KEY LOSSES: G Kyrie Irving, F/C Al Horford, F Marcus Morris, G Terry Rozier.
KEY ADDITIONS: Walker, Kanter, G Romeo Langford, F Grant Williams, G Carsen Edwards.
PLAYERS TO WATCH: It starts with Walker, who jumped at the chance in free agency to join a perennial playoff team. Following Kyrie Irving's departure to Brooklyn, it will also give Walker the opportunity to do what Irving couldn't: lead the Celtics to an NBA Finals. He'll need help, though. And that will again put the spotlight on youngsters Jaylen Brown and Jayson Tatum. Both took small steps backward last season as infighting and chemistry issues plagued the team. Now, both will have key roles, much like they did two seasons ago when Irving missed the playoffs and they helped get the team to the Eastern Conference finals. It's an especially big year for Brown. The Celtics have until Oct. 21 to decide whether to extend his contract for another season or let him become a restricted free agent next summer.
OUTLOOK: The Celtics are going to have to tweak their style of play a little without Irving or Horford. Irving was their chief scorer and Horford played a huge role facilitating offense in the half court as well as on defense. Kanter is a big man that can run, which should fit in nicely with the up-tempo style this athletic roster is built for. Whether this team is ultimately able to be a threat to win the East will depend on how well Walker leads and if the starting unit gets enough support from its youthful group of reserves.
Despite Hayward's absence, Celts welcome Wiz on a roll

Life without Gordon Hayward is off to an encouraging start for the Boston Celtics, who will look to run their winning streak to nine games when they host the Washington Wizards on Wednesday.

Hayward fractured his left hand against the San Antonio Spurs over the weekend and underwent surgery Monday that will sideline him six weeks. Even without the forward, who was off to an All-Star-caliber start, Boston beat the Dallas Mavericks 116-106 Monday night, showcasing the type of depth it'll need to maintain its early success in Hayward's absence.

"(We have to) find ways to win regardless," said Jaylen Brown, who had 25 points and 11 rebounds in the win. "... We know how to win, so we've just got to continue to do that, and I think today was a good example of that."

Marcus Smart jumped into the starting lineup in Hayward's place and scored 17 points on 6-of-9 shooting, while Kemba Walker led the way with eight 3-pointers and 24 of his 29 points in the second half. Walker exited late in the fourth quarter after experiencing whiplash on a hit from Luka Doncic, but he's not on the injury report for Wednesday night and is expected to play without restriction.

"It just shows you how talented we are from everybody on this roster," said Smart of overcoming the injuries. "Those guys go down and everybody else steps up and had their opportunities and took full advantage of it."

Brown is averaging 19.8 points per game, and Tatum is at 19.4 despite a five-point showing on 1-of-18 shooting against Dallas. Role players Brad Wanamaker and Robert Williams III saw increased playing time in the win and will continue to be relied upon while Hayward recovers.

Things haven't gone as good for the Wizards without John Wall (Achilles') this season. Washington has dropped five of six heading into Wednesday night and is allowing more points per game (117.5) than all but one Eastern Conference team.

Bradley Beal has carried the club, averaging 26.1 points, but when he hit only eight of 21 shots against the Cleveland Cavaliers last Friday, Washington fell 113-100. With Beal out of sync, youngsters Rui Hachimura (21 points) and Thomas Bryant (23) carried the load.

"I thought we did a good job of attacking, but you know we just got to keep playing," coach Scott Brooks said. "We got to keep playing and believe in what we do. We played hard, and we're going to get the respect that we deserve."

The Boston crowd Wednesday is sure to show respect to Wizards guard Isaiah Thomas, who is expected to make his first start in the building since his run as a fan favorite on the Celtics from 2015-17.

"The love that they showed (when I returned the first time), you would have thought I won a championship there, or was there for 10 years-plus," said Thomas, who came off the bench at Boston with the Denver Nuggets last season. "... I appreciate their love, and I love them just as much they (love me). It will be fun to go back there."

Boston big man Daniel Theis is doubtful for the contest with a sprained finger on his right hand.
