Marcin Gortat scored 14 points with 16 rebounds in Friday's win over the Pacers.
He grabbed eight offensive rebounds, one short of his career-high. The Polish Hammer shot 7-of-12 from the field and added one assist and one block in 35 minutes, and his role hasn't been impacted by the return of Ian Mahinmi yet, as he logged 41 minutes in his previous game vs. the Nets. He's one of the hottest centers in the East right now and fantasy owners have to love the consistency. Feb 11 - 12:40 AM

Marcin Gortat scored 12 points with 17 rebounds, one block and no turnovers in 36 minutes against the Pelicans on Saturday.

He's not the greatest big man in the NBA, but his consistency is as high as anyone right now. He has double-doubles in each of his last five while making 72.0 percent from the field and 88.9 percent from the line, averaging 16.0 points, 12.8 boards, 1.8 assists, 1.2 steals and 0.8 blocks. Yeah, Ian Mahinmi (knee) isn't touching his minutes if he ever comes back.
Feb 4 - 10:15 PM

Marcin Gortat scored 21 points with 14 rebounds, three assists and one steal in 33 minutes against the Lakers on Thursday.

He absolutely dominated against Timofey Mozgov and Ivica Zubac today. That's not surprising for Gortat with how well he played in January, averaging 11.9 points, 10.5 boards, 1.4 assists, 0.9 blocks and 0.7 steals. Gortat has fifth-round value on the season and we don't see him slowing down. Also, Gortat probably doesn't get enough credit for how well the Wizards are playing.
Feb 2 - 10:38 PM

Marcin Gortat doubled-doubled vs. the Knicks on Tuesday, scoring 15 points with 11 rebounds.

This was his 27th double-double of the season. The Knicks have been generous to opposing centers all season and tonight was no different, as Gortat shot 7-of-7 from the field and added two assists, one block and one steal in 31 minutes. He's one of the hottest centers in the NBA right now, shooting a ridiculous 82.1 percent from the field over his last five games.
Jan 31 - 10:51 PM

Marcin Gortat scored 17 points with 11 rebounds, two assists and one steal in 31 minutes on Sunday against the Pelicans.

Gortat recorded his 26th double-double of the season. He is averaging a career-high 11.4 rebounds, as well as 59.2 field goal percentage. The big man is playing heavy minutes for the Wizards and fantasy owners should be content with his production thus far this season.
Jan 29 - 9:05 PM

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.
Wed, Dec 28, 2016 09:43:00 PM

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.
Mon, Dec 19, 2016 10:00:00 PM

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.
Tue, Dec 6, 2016 09:48:00 PM

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.
Sat, Dec 3, 2016 01:58:00 AM

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.
Sat, Nov 26, 2016 09:32:00 PM

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.
