Marcin Gortat scored 19 points on 9-of-9 shooting in Friday's win over the Wolves.
Per ESPN, he's the first Wizards player to go 9-of-9 from the field since Ben Wallace in 1999. The fact that he did this against Karl-Anthony Towns speaks for itself, and Gortat also added 10 rebounds, one assist and three blocks in 33 minutes. He also had five turnovers, but Gortat is rolling with top-60 value on the season in standard leagues. Jan 6 - 10:54 PM

Marcin Gortat scored 12 points with 16 rebounds, four assists and one block on 5-of-11 shooting in Tuesday's loss to Dallas.

The Wizards don't have any confidence in their backup bigs with Ian Mahinmi (knees) out, so Gortat has played 40 or more minutes in four out of his last five games. He has four double-doubles in that span with averages of 12.2 points, 14.2 rebounds, 3.0 assists, 0.6 blocks and 0.6 steals, so his owners can keep rolling him out there with confidence.
Jan 3 - 11:22 PM

Marcin Gortat hit 6-of-10 shots for 13 points, 14 rebounds, three assists, one steals, zero blocks and four turnovers in Monday's 101-91 loss to the Rockets.

That makes three straight double-doubles for Gortat, who came into this one averaging 11.4 points, 11.8 rebounds and 1.0 blocks on the season. He's a very reliable fantasy center with a high floor and a low ceiling, but there is something to be said for his consistency.
Jan 2 - 11:10 PM

Marcin Gortat scored 13 points with 16 rebounds, four assists and one steal in 41 minutes against the Pacers on Wednesday.

After an eye-popping 21-point gem on Dec. 19, Gortat has cooled off a little as a scorer. However, he has logged a whopping 37.4 minutes per game in his last five, averaging 12.0 points, 11.6 boards, 2.6 assists and 0.4 blocks. He's been rock solid as a top-60 player in standard leagues with no signs of slowing down.

Marcin Gortat hit 10-fo-15 shots on his way to 21 points and 13 rebounds in Monday's 107-105 loss to the Pacers.

Gortat had his way with Myles Turner tonight and racked up his 15th double-double of the season. He's on fire right now, double-doubling in three of his last four games, and averaging 14.5 points and 11.5 rebounds over his last four games, hitting a 28-of-44 shots over that stretch.

Marcin Gortat racked up 16 points, 12 rebounds, two assists, two steals and one block in 36 minutes vs. Charlotte on Wednesday.

The Hornets rank fifth in the league with 46.0 rebounds per game, while the Wizards rank 27th at just 42.2 boards per game, so Gortat's efforts on the glass were huge. This is his first double-digit scoring performance in the past five games, and his role was somewhat inflated with Markieff Morris (foot) out of commission tonight.
Wed, Dec 14, 2016 10:12:00 PM

Marcin Gortat hit just 3-of-11 shots for six points, 11 rebounds, a steal, a block and five fouls on Tuesday.

Tonight broke a three-game double-double streak for Gortat and he scored in single digits for the first time since Nov. 11. Gortat's poor shooting had a lot to do with it, but he's fine. He should bounce back against the Nuggets on Thursday.

Marcin Gortat went off for 21 points on 8-of-16 shooting with 18 rebounds, two assists, two blocks and two steals before fouling out in 42 minutes against the Spurs on Friday.

He's averaging a career-high 35.2 minutes per game and this was the second time this season that he played 42 minutes. Ian Mahinmi (knee) can't stay healthy and coach Scott Brooks doesn't trust his bench at all, but Gortat's owners aren't complaining. He's flirting with top-50 value in standard leagues and his owners just have to hope that the Wizards can remain relevant in the East.

Marcin Gortat scored 10 points with 10 rebounds, one assist and one turnover in 33 minutes against the Spurs on Saturday.

Ian Mahinmi made his season debut for the Wizards tonight. After Mahinmi signed in July, there were some rumors on Gortat, but they obviously never came to fruition. Gortat's minutes should be just fine and hang around 30. Although, the Wizards do need to win some games with their 5-10 record. Gortat should post mid-round value as long as he's active on the Wizards.

Marcin Gortat had his best game of the season on Saturday against Hassan Whiteside and the Heat, racking up 10 points, a season-high 16 rebounds and a season-high five blocks.

He's double-doubled in three of this last four games, has hit double digits in rebounds in all but two games this season, and double digits in scoring in all but three games. He came into this game fifth in the league in rebounding and after his five blocks, both of those averages got a boost tonight. He's rolling.

Marcin Gortat called out the Wizards' bench after Saturday's loss to Chicago.

"I think right now as far as I know I think we’ve got one of the worst bench in the league right now," Gortat said. He added that he's not having fun anymore, but later posted an apology on Twitter for his rant. The Wizards are 2-7 and frustrations are boiling over, but they have a great chance to turn things around with games coming up against the 76ers, Knicks, Heat, Suns and Magic.
Sun, Nov 13, 2016 09:27:00 AM

Marcin Gortat scored 18 points with 14 rebounds, two assists and one block against the Bulls on Saturday.

He is cleaning up on the glass and it probably helps that Markieff Morris isn't s strong rebounder. Gortat is tied with Dwight Howard for fourth in the NBA with 12.4 boards per game, but his points and blocks are slightly down compared to last year. He's still on a roll as a fourth-round player on the season and the eventual return of Ian Mahinmi (knee) won't hurt him.
Sat, Nov 12, 2016 11:39:00 PM

Marcin Gortat had 14 points, 12 rebounds, a season-high three assists and two blocks in Monday's loss to Houston.

He's double-doubled in four of his last five games and is averaging 12.6 points, 12.6 rebounds and 1.0 blocks over his last five. He should be locked and loaded as a starting fantasy center as long as he's healthy, and he has no one challenging him for minutes.
Mon, Nov 7, 2016 09:59:00 PM

Marcin Gortat scored 12 points with 15 rebounds, one steal and one block in 31 minutes against the Hawks on Friday.

He dominated down low and with most of those boards coming in traffic -- he had a huge board late to help the Wizards get the win. There was some talk of him getting a dip in playing time, but 31 minutes is right in his wheelhouse. Gortat should be a mid-round guy going forward.

Marcin Gortat may see a reduced workload on Friday.

Gortat has played well this week, racking up double-doubles in two straight games. Gortat scored 15 points and grabbed 10 rebounds on Wednesday. However, the issue is he played over 43 minutes in that contest, and the Wiz are currently in the middle of a stretch where they will play three games in four nights. Three players, Markieff Morris, Gortat and Bradley Beal, played the entire third quarter on Wednesday. Gortat also played the full 12 minutes of the second quarter. It is safe to assume that Coach Brooks may want to limit Gortat's minutes on Friday and/or Saturday, which makes him a risky proposition in DFS.
