Washington Wizards forward Deni Avdija missed his second consecutive game with a left heel contusion in Sunday's 114-105 loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers at the Capital One Arena. After an off-day Monday, the Wizards welcome the Golden State Warriors to the District Tuesday night for the second game in a two-game season series.

Mired in an 11-game losing streak, the Wizards are hopeful the return of one of their key contributors will turn their misfortune into their first win in nearly a month. Tuesday's game will mark the end of a brief two-game homestand before the Wizards head back out on the road to face the Los Angeles Lakers on Leap Day.

According to a report from Monumental Sports Network's Chase Hughes, Avdija is listed as questionable ahead of the Wizards' clash with the Warriors. Deni is joined on the Wizards injury report by several of his teammates.

In the Warriors' 129-118 win over the Wizards in the team's first meeting of the year, Avdija finished the night with seven points, four rebounds, and four assists in 20 minutes of action. If the Wizards hope to end their lengthy losing streak, they will need Avdija to be available for more than 20 minutes on Tuesday night.
