Man, Patrick Baldwin’s ankle may have been more messed up than scouts, coaches, people like me, everyone thought last year. He’s moving much better than he did at Milwaukee. – 4:07 AM

Quick 1st half takeaways of the Washington Wizards’ first half. #NBAJapanGames
• Rui Hachimura has been impressive again. (3 Level Scoring)
• Monte Morris PG play + running the offense has been smooth.
• Johnny Davis’s aggressiveness on the Defense side of the ball. – 2:12 AM
CJ Holmes @CjHolmes22
Wizards lead the Warriors 56-54 at halftime. This game has been pretty gross honestly, but Steph Curry has a game-high 17 points and Rui Hachimura has a team-high 11 points for Washington, so the crowd is getting their money’s worth. – 2:12 AM

The Wizards haven’t announced their starters yet for today’s preseason game, but this is my guess on what Wes Unseld Jr. will do with Bradley Beal out for rest:
G: Monté Morris
G: Will Barton
F: Kyle Kuzma
F: Rui Hachimura
C: Kristaps Porziņģis. – 12:26 AM

The Warriors and guard Ty Jerome are in talks on a camp deal to compete for a roster spot after he clears waivers Monday, sources tell me and @Shams Charania. Warriors still finalizing plan for two-ways/empty 15th over next couple weeks. Unlikely they fill 15th for tax savings. – 12:15 AM
