TORONTO (AP) - Jonas Valanciunas scored a career-high 24 points and grabbed 10 rebounds as the Toronto Raptors beat the Washington Wizards 88-78 on Wednesday night.

Valanciunas went 16 of 18 from the free throw line and DeMar DeRozan had 25 points for Toronto (28-47), which snapped a two-game slide after being eliminated from the playoff chase with Monday's 108-98 home loss to Detroit.

John Wall had 20 points for the short-handed Wizards (28-47), who announced before the game that rookie standout Bradley Beal will miss the remainder of the season with a right leg injury.

The Raptors entered the fourth carrying a 68-62 lead thanks in part to solid free throw shooting from Valanciunas and Kyle Lowry, who had nine points, eight boards and 13 assists in the game.
