Wizards open their season against Heat

WASHINGTON -- The Washington Wizards take the first step toward putting a disappointing 2017-18 season behind them when the host the Miami Heat in their season opener on Thursday night.

The Wizards finished 43-39 a year ago, earning the No. 8 seed in the Eastern Conference and a first-round playoff exit -- not what they expected when the season began.

Washington returns four starters and replaces traded-away center Marcin Gortat with Dwight Howard, who averaged 16.6 points and 12.5 rebounds last season with Charlotte and joins his fourth club in four years.
