The Wizards are hosting the Trail Blazers for a matinee game on Martin Luther King, Jr. Day.
While warming up, players wore special shirts honoring Dr. King's message and legacy.
The text on the shirts reads "His dream inspired the world. Never stop dreaming."
Before the start of the game Monday, Wizards shooting guard Bradley Beal addressed the crowd about how Dr. King's message impacts the lives of Americans today.
"Because of his leadership and courage, we're able to continue to dream today," Beal said.

Sunday was a bad day for the Cowboys. They lost their divisional playoff game to the Packers, on a last-second field goal, no less. But then after the game, players and fans couldn't just pack up and go home.
Instead, they got stuck inside AT&T Stadium due to severe weather in the area. Weather forecasts showed potential tornadoes and dangerous flash flooding.
There was some silver lining for fans who got stuck, though. They got to see some of their favorite players one more time this season.
