Marcin Gortat had a long overdue productive game against the 76ers on Monday with 20 points, eight rebounds and two blocks.
He made 9-of-11 from the field and both free throws, which was probably the biggest surprise due to how he made just 40.0 percent from the line in his previous action in 2015. Gortat was stuck in a slump both on offense and on defense with just 0.7 blocks per game in his previous 11 games. Yes this was a favorable matchup, but it should get him going. He's a must-start player in standard leagues. Jan 19 - 5:48 PM

Marcin Gortat double-doubled against the Nets on Saturday with 10 points, 16 boards and one block.

He missed both attempts from the line and that has been a serious issue for him. In his last 10 games he's made just 40.0 percent from the line with averages of 10.8 points, 8.4 boards and 0.8 blocks. He is pretty close to rock bottom right now, so a buy-low offer seems like the right call.
Jan 18 - 1:11 AM

Marcin Gortat grabbed just two rebounds during Sunday's loss to the Hawks, adding 10 points, one assist, three turnovers, and zero blocks over 19.4 minutes of action.

Gortat has actually managed to grab just two rebounds on two other occasions this season, but he's still averaging 12.5 points, 8.2 rebounds, and 1.4 blocks on the year. Look for him to bounce-back on Tuesday when the Wizards take on the Spurs.

Marcin Gortat scored a game-high 21 points on 10-of-16 from the field during a 102-96 win over the Bulls on Friday, adding 13 rebounds, one assist and two blocks in 38 minutes.

He had his double-double at halftime and the Bulls couldn't keep him away from the basket. Gortat has been very quiet and didn't have a multiple block game in any of his previous five while only posting one double-double in that span. He should be a must-start center in standard leagues.
Jan 10 - 2:22 AM

Marcin Gortat put up 10 points (4-of-10 shooting), to go with nine rebounds, two blocks, one steal, and one turnover during the Wizards' Christmas Day win over the Knicks.

Gortat also knocked down both of his free throw attempts, and aside from the poor shooting from the field, this is your standard Gortat line. While he's not going to light up the scoring column, he's a nightly double-double threat, a decent free throw shooter, and an above average shot blocker. Keep rolling him out there.

Marcin Gortat, who averaged 23.3 minutes over the Wizards' previous three games, finished Tuesday's loss with 14 points, 11 boards and three blocks in 38 minutes.

He shot just 5-of-15 from the field, but also made 4-of-4 free throws with an assist and a steal. The increased playing time is the key for fantasy owners, who can expect his minutes to hover around his season average of 29.5 per game. That's been enough for Gortat to rack up fourth-round fantasy value through the Wizards' first 26 games.

Marcin Gortat played just 20 minutes in a loss to the Suns on Sunday, finishing with nine points, seven boards and two blocks.

He deserves a pass here and the Wizards just decided to go with the hot hand in Kevin Seraphin off of the bench. Gortat has been a double-double machine for the Wizards this season, and should bounce-back against the Bulls on Tuesday. Keep Gortat locked into all lineups, and expect him to play big minutes against the imposing frontcourt of Chicago.
Sun, Dec 21, 2014 09:43:00 PM

Marcin Gortat scored just four points on 2-of-5 shooting with seven rebounds, one steal and one block over 22 minutes on Friday against the Heat.

Gortat should have done more against a depleted Heat squad, but he's been a relatively stable mid-round play this season. Keep him in lineups.

Marcin Gortat was given a flop warning for his actions against the Jazz on Sunday.

VIdeo of the flop can be found below. If Gortat is found guilty again, he'll face a $5,000 fine.

Marcin Gortat was very quiet on Sunday, scoring only five points on 2-of-8 shooting with seven rebounds, two assists, one block and three turnovers in 31 minutes.

Rudy Gobert started for Utah and his incredible length and athleticism get some credit for Gortat's off night, which was only his sixth single-digit scoring game of the season. He should have much better luck on Tuesday vs. the Wolves, and especially on Friday vs. the Heat.
Sun, Dec 14, 2014 08:46:00 PM

Marcin Gortat was a handful for the Clippers during a win on Friday, making 8-of-10 from the field for 18 points with two rebounds and two blocks.

He had a terrific block against Blake Griffin in the low post. Gortat and the Wizards have won seven of their last eight games and the big man has shot at least 55 percent from the field in seven of those eight. He's blocking shots, pulling down boards and making 96 percent of his free throws in that span, so he's as must-start as it gets.

Marcin Gortat lit up the Lakers for 21 points, 11 rebounds and zero blocks on 9-of-13 shooting on Wednesday.

He had his way with Jordan Hill and company tonight, and is one of the more underrated centers in the league. And the fact he did this on a night when Kris Humphries racked up 20 rebounds makes it even more impressive.

Marcin Gortat dominated in the paint against the Pelicans on Saturday during an 83-80 win with 24 points, 13 boards, two assists, two steals and four blocks in 41 minutes.

The Wizards need him to play big minutes as they look for guys to fill the void left by Nene (foot). Gortat has three double-doubles in his last four games to go with eight blocks in that span, so his fantasy owners certainly aren't looking forward to Nene making his return. Regardless, Gortat is a must-start center despite a slow start and some shooting issues.

Marcin Gortat had 14 points, 13 rebounds, a steal and two blocks in Wednesday's win.

He's very consistent, but not very flashy. He's hit double figures in scoring and double digits in rebounds in three of his last five games, with two double-doubles, and is averaging 10.8 points, 9.4 rebounds, 1.0 steals and 1.2 blocks over that stretch.

Randy Wittman praised Marcin Gortat, Kevin Seraphin and Nene for their defense in Wednesday's win over the Pacers.

"I thought [Marcin Gortat] and Kevin [Seraphin], and Nene did a great job getting him early and pushing him off his spot. That’s really it. I thought it was a magic defense I put in to cause that, but it wasn’t." The Washington big men held Roy Hibbert to two points in an overtime win.
