If there's a rock bottom for the Lakers to hit, Friday night in Washington would certainly qualify. The Lakers (9-14), losers of four straight, will visit the Wizards (3-16), who are currently dead last in the NBA. After a taxing loss in New York on Thursday against the Knicks, the Lakers will have to muster enough energy to beat a vulnerable but desperate Washington team. The Wizards have yet to play John Wall (knee) and recently lost his temporary replacement, A.J. Price, to a broken hand.
