Martell Webster is set to undergo season-ending hip surgery on Friday.

"We tried everything else and I just wasn’t getting the results that I wanted," Webster said. "So I wanted to go out and get it taken care of rather than playing this season in some discomfort and then wait until the offseason to get it taken care of and then rehab the whole offseason and then try to find a rhythm come training camp. I’d rather take care of it now." Webster was diagnosed with a partially torn labrum back in September, and ultimately playing through significant pain was just not an option. His current timeline is set at 4-6 months, and Webster is adamant that this will not be a career-ending injury.

Martell Webster is using prescription eyewear (PRI) in order to try and avoid season-ending hip surgery.

Webster is dealing with a bone spur and a partially torn labrum in his right hip, and PRI is designed to improve Webster's balance and reduce the amount of stress he puts on the injured area of his body. It's a last-ditch effort from a player who has had a litany of injury issues, and it's not clear how effective Webster could be even if he avoids the operating table.
Nov 2 - 9:51 AM

Updating a previous report, Martell Webster (hip) will be inactive for Friday's game against the Bucks.

Alan Anderson (ankle) will join Webster on the inactive list for Friday's matchup, and neither of these guys are worth rostering in most leagues.
Oct 30 - 7:37 PM

Martell Webster (hip) will be available on the bench on Friday.

He probably won't get many minutes tonight, but it's good to see he's back there. Webster can be ignored in most leagues.
Oct 30 - 6:38 PM

Martell Webster (hip) will not play vs. the Magic on Wednesday.

He has a partially torn labrum in his right hip but he wants to continue to play through the injury instead of opting for surgery. Webster is not on the fantasy radar.
Oct 28 - 5:42 PM

Martell Webster is dealing with a partially torn labrum in his right hip, but he said that he will try to play through the injury.

If Webster chooses to undergo surgery he would be sidelined for 4-6 months, but he seems determined to keep playing despite the fact that it flared up on him in practice Tuesday. Even if Webster gives it a go on Wednesday vs. the Magic, he won't see enough minutes to impact fantasy leagues.
Oct 28 - 11:14 AM

Martell Webster is dealing with arthritic pain in his hip and his ability to play will hinge on whether or not he's able to tolerate the pain.

Webster was a full participant during Tuesday's practice, but given that he spent the entire preseason on the sidelines it's unlikely he'll be ready to go when Washington's regular-season begins on Wednesday in Orlando, as he'll still need to get his conditioning up to par for game-time minutes. He's not likely going to be a major factor for the Wizards this season, so it's safe to leave him on the wire in all leagues.

Martell Webster (hip) was a full participant in Tuesday's practice.

While it's unclear if the 28-year-old will be ready for Wednesday's opener against the Magic, Tuesday's practice report seems to be a good indicator that he will play. We'll keep an eye on Webster's status, but he can be ignored in standard fantasy leagues.
Oct 27 - 12:52 PM

Martell Webster (hip) is seeking a second opinion on his injured hip.

Webster has been sidelined with a sore right hip that he says is arthritic since October and recently traveled to Nebraska for a second opinion. The 28-year-old is currently without a timetable and can be ignored in all fantasy leagues.
Oct 20 - 10:07 AM

Martell Webster (hip) did not play in Saturday's preseason game against the Bucks.

Webster's hip has kept him out of action since it was revealed that he was dealing with significant pain less than two weeks ago, and it's not yet clear when he might be able to return. Considering his lengthy injury history, we're not betting on a swift rebound.
Oct 19 - 9:44 AM

Martell Webster (strained hip) was held out of practice on Monday.

Considering Webster revealed he is dealing with "significant pain" in the area, this isn't a surprise. The Wizards have yet to provide a timetable of any kind for Webster's return, but it wouldn't surprise us if it's later, not sooner. You can ignore him in all fantasy formats.
Oct 12 - 1:04 PM

Martell Webster (strained hip) will not play in Sunday's preseason game vs. Paschoalotto Bauru.

Webster spent all but 32 games on the sidelines last season, and he's not getting off to a great start this year with a hip injury that is still giving him significant pain. He's not worth drafting in any league.
Oct 11 - 4:45 PM

Martell Webster is dealing with significant pain in his strained hip, and this is the type of injury that could linger into the regular-season.

Not good. Webster really struggled to stay healthy last season, suiting up for just 32 games to go with averages of 3.3 points and not much else through 10.9 minutes of floor time. It will be tough for Webster to consistently get into the rotation while the team is healthy, so there's really no reason to draft him in any league.
Oct 8 - 4:25 PM

Martell Webster (strained hip) did not practice on Wednesday.

Webster also sat out of Tuesday's preseason game vs. the 76ers. Webster is hoping to carve out a role in the rotation and there has been some talk that he could be used as a stretch four, but this injury won't help. Webster can be ignored in almost all leagues for now.
