Marcin Gortat nearly triple-doubled during Sunday's loss to the Raptors, racking up 12 points, 12 rebounds, seven assists, one steal and zero turnovers in 35 minutes.
Gortat typically isn't a dime-dropper for the Wizards, but with John Wall (knee) unavailable, Gortat was tasked with some increased playmaking responsibilities. He also finished 6-of-11 from the field, and aside from the assists, this is more or less what owners can expect from Gortat as a low-end, double-double guy with solid percentages. Nov 19 - 6:11 PM

Marcin Gortat scored 11 points with 13 rebounds and one block in 28 minutes against the Heat on Friday.

That's better after Hassan Whiteside owned him on Wednesday with only two points. Gortat is what he is as a guy who will flirt with double-doubles and add some blocks. He's a fine hold at a premium position.

Marcin Gortat scored two points with five rebounds and two steals in 27 minutes against the Heat on Wednesday.

We've seen Hassan Whiteside neutralize some centers, but Gortat played somewhat well besides the box score with good screening and strong defense. He'll have games like this, but he's still flirting with top-100 value at a premium position. He's a fine hold at the end of your roster.
Nov 15 - 10:41 PM

Marcin Gortat finally got back on track on Monday night, hitting 7-of-11 shots to torch the Kings for 18 points, seven rebounds and a block.

The 18 points tied his season high and snapped a streak of three games where he didn't score more than eight points. Gortat's off to a slow start this season, but should be able to average a double-double with a block once he gets back on track.
Nov 13 - 9:52 PM

Marcin Gortat scored eight points on 4-of-5 shooting with five rebounds, one assist and three turnovers in 30 minutes against the Lakers on Thursday.

The Wizards lost five of their last seven games, so Gortat had some strong words for his team prior to the game. "This is super disrespectful. Bottom-line, I feel embarrassed for those games," Gortat said. "We definitely owe a huge apology to our fans for our performance. That's not who we are and that's not who we want to be in the future." With the Hawks and Kings next up on the schedule, the Wizards should be able to build some momentum from tonight's win.

Marcin Gortat scored eight points with five rebounds in 25 minutes against the Mavs on Tuesday.

He didn't have any fouls in this game, so the loss in playing time had to do with the Wizards playing from behind and playing guys like Markieff Morris at the five in the second half. Gortat was playing 31.4 minutes per game before tonight, but he'll probably be closer to the 24.4 minutes per game he played after the break last year. He's a solid shot blocker, so he should still be owned in standard leagues.
Nov 7 - 10:02 PM

Marcin Gortat posted 15 points with five rebounds, one steal and one blocked shot over 28 minutes in Friday's loss against the Cavaliers.

Gortat did what he pleased from the field, hitting 6-of-7, and the only complaint from fantasy owners is that he didn't take more shot attempts. He had totaled just 15 points over his past two games, so he was definitely feeling it on the offensive end after a couple of subpar performances.
Nov 3 - 10:16 PM

Marcin Gortat played just 18 minutes on Sunday, finishing with six points, nine rebounds, two assists and one steal.

This was an end-to-end blowout for the Wizards, so coach Scott Brooks didn't need to push his starters. Gortat will be extremely well rested to face his former team when the Suns visit D.C. on Wednesday.
Oct 29 - 8:55 PM

Marcin Gortat posted 18 points with four rebounds, four assists and two blocked shots in 33 minutes Friday at Golden State.

Gortat hit 8-of-16 from the floor and 2-of-2 from the free-throw stripe. He has yet to miss more shots than he has made in each of his five games this season. It was his game this season without committing a personal foul. He'll look to keep it going in Sunday's game at Sacramento.
Oct 28 - 1:35 AM

Marcin Gortat posted 16 points, 17 rebounds and three blocks during Wednesday's home-opening victory, making 7-of-12 FGs and 2-of-3 FTs in 34 minutes.

Gortat was a rebounding machine tonight, and this is a terrific sight for owners who took a chance on him in the later rounds -- his ADP plummeted due to a brutal finish to the 2016-17 season. The 11-year veteran has returned at least top-100 value (per-game) in six straight seasons, and he couldn't have gotten off to a better start this year.
Oct 18 - 10:07 PM

Marcin Gortat was quiet in 26 minutes vs. the Knicks on Friday, going scoreless with two assists, one block, and more turnovers (four) than rebounds (three).

Gortat went 0-of-1 from the field and 0-of-2 from the FT line. This is about as bad as you'll see him get, even if the league is trending away from the style of play favored by the Polish Hammer. The 33-year-old struggled after the All-Star break last season, but impressive durability (eight DNPs in the past four seasons) helps to sustain him as a late-round option.
Oct 13 - 11:03 PM

Marcin Gortat said that he'd like to "add a few blocks ... and a few points" to his averages this season.

"That depends on what kind of system we're going to have and what kind of role I'm going to have this season," Gortat added, noting that he hopes to be among the league leaders in rebounds. He struck a discordant note in his exit interview in May, saying he felt "under-appreciated" in Washington, but his recent interview was more even-keeled.
Aug 27 - 11:27 PM

Marcin Gortat said he is fully committed to the Wizards going forward.

In his exit interview at the end of last season, a frustrated Gortat said it might be best for both him and the team if he were to be traded. However, Gortat joined teammates in Los Angeles earlier this summer and is currently participating in an informal summer mini-camp with fellow Wizards. This is a departure from previous years, when he would typically spend most of the offseason in his native Poland. "I still have a contract and at the end of the day, I’m a Wizards player," said Gortat.
Aug 25 - 10:35 AM

Wizards president Ernie Grunfeld confirmed that he's spoken to Marcin Gortat about his future with the franchise, adding, "He's going to be a big part of what we're doing."

Gortat questioned his fit in Washington after they were eliminated from the playoffs, saying that he'd sacrificed more than anyone without due appreciation. "[Gortat] has averaged a double-double for four years," Grunfeld said. "He's been in the second round for three out of those four years ... Everybody has frustration after a tough loss and a tough series. [He] is with us." Considering Gortat is still under contract for two more seasons, that was never truly in doubt.
Jun 22 - 1:25 AM

In his exit interview, Marcin Gortat said that he is going to speak with his agent this summer and figure out "if this is the right fit."

An agitated Gortat voiced frustration with the situation in Washington. He said he felt he "did more sacrificing" than anyone on the team, while playing an "under-appreciated" role as a center. Gortat still has two years left on his current contract, so he has little leverage to demand a trade. And considering the fact that he is signed to an affordable contract (he will make $6 million less than Ian Mahinmi over the next two seasons), the Wiz have no incentive to move him.
