Randy’s Free Pick

The Portland Trail Blazers have a lot of key guys on their injury list, and they’ve had issues on the road this season as it is. The Washington Wizards are as healthy as they’ve been in a while, and they’re well rested after their game against the Pistons was postponed. The Wizards haven’t played since Monday, which is a nice rest at this point in the season. I’ll lay the chalk.
