The Indiana Pacers are still struggling to find their offense without All-Star forward Danny Granger.
The Washington Wizards, meanwhile, are having a difficult time simply winning without franchise point guard John Wall.
The Pacers will try to snap a six-game road losing streak and beat the Wizards for the eighth straight time as they take on the league's lone winless team on Monday night.
With Granger - who averaged a team-high 18.7 points last season - sidelined, Indiana (4-7) has failed to live up to the high expectations after pushing eventual champion Miami to six games in the conference semifinals of the 2012 playoffs.
Most of their issues have come offensively, where the Pacers are looking for any kind of spark after failing to reach 80 points for the third time in eight games in an 88-76 loss at New York on Sunday.
Paul George scored a season-high 20 points and David West added 14, but Indiana managed only 30 first-half points and committed 19 turnovers overall.
