Dwight Howard is expected to make his debut with the Wizards tonight and Markieff Morris will also be back in the lineup as well.

“I’ve been feeling pretty good,” Howard said. ”I’m just looking forward to doing what I can to help this team win. … I just think if I play my game, we should have a good opportunity to win. On the defensive end, it’s going to ball of us. We’ve got to do a good job collectively of playing defense.”

The team needs work on offensive rebounds per game, as they’re currently ranked 28th in the NBA. Howard’s addition to the lineup should immediately resolve some of the team’s defensive issues.

The game will air on ESPN, NSWA and FSOK at Capital One Arena.
