Pelicans can't afford loss to woeful Wizards

The Washington Wizards are using the NBA restart to build for the future.

The New Orleans Pelicans might find themselves doing the same thing if they don't beat the Wizards on Friday at the Visa Athletic Center near Orlando.

The Pelicans have been in the thick of the tight battle get into a play-in opportunity in the Western Conference playoff race. However, their challenge got more difficult when they lost 140-125 to the Sacramento Kings on Thursday, leaving them 1-3 in the restart and 29-39 overall with four games to play.
