The Washington Wizards are trying to improve their playoff positioning but may have a tough time doing so on Wednesday as they host the best team in the East, the Boston Celtics.

Two opening day starters will matchup in Detroit on Sunday night as Mark Buehrle and the Chicago White Sox face Justin Verlander and the Detroit Tigers.
