Basketball is Back and the Wizards are ready to begin the 2022-2023 season!

Although there are still some restrictions, most teams are close to being back to prepandemic ways.

The Wizards begin this season with a new look and DC fans are excited to see a duo teased last season but never came to be, Bradley Beal and the unicorn, Kristaps Porzingis. Below you will find who will be starting in the 1st game of the new season against the Indiana Pacers during the 2022-2023 Wizards season opener!
