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.
MINNESOTA: LAST SEASON: 36-46, finished 11th in Western Conference.
COACH: Ryan Saunders (second season, 17-25 as interim coach last season).
PROJECTED STARTING FIVE: G Jeff Teague (12.1 ppg), G Andrew Wiggins (18.1), F Jake Layman (7.6), F Robert Covington (14.5), C Karl-Anthony Towns (24.4).
KEY LOSSES: G Derrick Rose, G Tyus Jones, F Taj Gibson, F Dario Saric, F Anthony Tolliver, G Jerryd Bayless, F Luol Deng.
KEY ADDITIONS: Layman, G Jarrett Culver, G Shabazz Napier, G/F Treveon Graham, F Noah Vonleh, F Jordan Bell, G Jaylen Nowell, C Naz Reid.
PLAYERS TO WATCH: Towns is as versatile of a big man as there is in the league, but he can't carry the scoring load alone so the pressure will be on Wiggins to take a step forward under Saunders in the second year of his max contract extension carrying a $27 million salary cap hit. Having a healthy Covington, the team's best defender who arrived in the Jimmy Butler trade from the Sixers last season but missed the last 45 games because of a bone bruise on his knee, will be a critical factor. Culver, the sixth overall pick in the draft out of NCAA runner up Texas Tech, ought to provide more of that valuable perimeter defense along with Josh Okogie off the bench. Either of them could crack the starting lineup at some point, too.
OUTLOOK: The Timberwolves have started fresh, yet again, with Saunders, the youngest coach in the league, beneath an overhauled front office headed by new president of basketball operations Gersson Rosas. With Towns and Wiggins, they have a pair of under-25 standouts locked in, and a quiet offseason relative to the rest of the NBA yielded some useful role players in Layman, Vonleh, Bell, Napier and Graham. The first steps are to establish themselves as a far more consistent and efficient team on defense and shooting from the outside. With the Western Conference even more loaded than before, though, it will be tough to measure progress in the standings. Increasing their win total will be a tall order.
Wiggins, Wolves could feast on Wizards

Andrew Wiggins received a standing ovation from the crowd at Target Center in the latter stages of the Minnesota Timberwolves' last game.

With the way Wiggins has played this season, the crowd might as well just stand on its feet from the onset.

Wiggins looks to continue his torrid Friday as the Timberwolves bid for their third straight victory when they host the Washington Wizards in Minneapolis.

The top overall pick of the 2014 NBA Draft, Wiggins tallied a game-high 30 points, eight rebounds and seven assists to lead Minnesota to a 129-114 victory over San Antonio on Wednesday.

"I feel like everybody is happy for each other," the 24-year-old Wiggins said. "When someone does good, there's genuine love."

Timberwolves fans must love what they have seen from Wiggins, who has recorded five straight performances with at least 25 points and five assists and has averaged 31.6 and 6.0, respectively, over that span.

Wiggins' last game in which he didn't score at least 25 points came in a 131-109 victory at Washington on Nov. 2. He scored 21.

Karl-Anthony Towns sat out that tilt while serving the first contest of his two-game suspension for his altercation with Philadelphia's Joel Embiid. Towns, however, hasn't missed a step by averaging 24.6 points and 12.4 rebounds since his return, with 28 and 11, respectively, coming in his seventh double-double of the season on Wednesday.

Towns said that opponents might be thinking they are playing the Timberwolves of old, as opposed to the new-look club that isn't shy about testing the perimeter.

"They've been so used to us taking midranges and layups and whatever ... that we never adjusted to what the game has changed to," said Towns, whose 24th birthday is Friday. "Not only have we now changed to what the modern NBA is, we are excelling at it tremendously well and being pioneers of excellence with it."

Coach Ryan Saunders has seen his team embrace the change, too.

"Hey, if you haven't watched us much, these guys are fun to be around," Saunders said.

More fun could be had at the expense of the struggling Wizards, who have lost six of seven and are hemorrhaging points defensively in the process. Washington permitted north of 120 for the fifth time this season in a 140-133 setback to Boston on Wednesday.

"If we continue to work and continue to figure out what we're not doing right and correcting those things, we can be a better defensive team," Wizards guard Isaiah Thomas said. "But until then, it's going to be hard to win if we are giving up 140 points in regulation."

Bradley Beal shot 17 of 27 from the floor against the Celtics to highlight his 44-point performance, marking the second time this season and 14th in his career that he has scored at least 40.

Beal is averaging a robust 28.1 points while shooting 43.4 percent from the floor, however offense hardly is the issue in his mind.

"When you score 133 points, that should win games. Especially on the road," said Beal, who finished with 30 in the previous game versus the Timberwolves.

Rookie forward Rui Hachimura was far more blunt.

"From the beginning of the season, our defense has been no good," the 21-year-old said, per NBC Sports Washington.
