Watch Washington Wizards Live Stream and Replays with NBA League Pass
Looking for a way to watch the Wizards online, plus keep up with the other teams you like to follow? If so, NBA League Pass might be the a good service for you. Here are the basics:

Note: Live streaming is blacked out for local teams. That means that if you live within the broadcasting market of any team(s), you will not be able to watch live streams of that team’s games, but can still watch replays.
There are two versions of this service: NBA League Pass, priced at $199.99 per season, is the full version, giving access to all teams in the NBA. NBA Team Pass, priced at $119.99 per season, gives access to a single team of your choice.

Watch Live NBA Games for Free Using Your Antenna
Amazingly, there is an easy, safe, and 100% legal way to watch FREE live NBA games. You don’t need cable or even internet to make this work – just a TV and an HD antenna. We recommend a few good TV antennas in our guide.
With an HD antenna, you can pick up and watch all over-the-air channels that broadcast in your area. Because ABC is an over-the-air channel, that means you can watch all ABC programming, for free! ABC will host a number of live NBA games this season, all of which you can watch for free without cable.
Check the NBA on ABC schedule for details and showtimes. If your schedule doesn’t work with the live broadcast times, the next best option is to record the games you want to watch using a DVR, so that you can enjoy them later. You can also take a look at the DVR comparison guide we put together to help our readers find the right device for their needs and budget.
It’s easier to watch live NBA games when you live outside of the US, because of the way broadcasting rights work. If you’re outside of the US, you qualify for NBA League Pass International. This service, like the domestic one, provides live streaming of regular season games, and on-demand replays of regular season and playoff games. The only difference is that there are no blackouts in the international version.
