Marcin Gortat played 17 minutes and hit 2-of-4 shots for four points, two rebounds, four assists, a steal and a block in Tuesday's loss to the Sixers.
He had scored in double figures in four straight games and was rebounding well, but he must have come down with a case of Embiid-itis tonight. Ian Mahinmi stepped up with 13 points and four boards in 23 minutes and could become a fantasy factor if the Wizards somehow find a taker for Gortat. Feb 7 - 12:24 AM

The Wizards have been engaged in trade talks involving Marcin Gortat, according to Brian Windhorst of ESPN.

Yet another name to keep an eye on as the Thursday's deadline quickly approaches. The Wizards have reportedly expressed interest in Clippers center DeAndre Jordan.
Feb 6 - 12:57 PM

Marcin Gortat notched a double-double against his former Magic team on Saturday, finishing with 10 points, 11 rebounds, and two blocks on 5-of-7 shooting.

Gortat more or less is what he is at this stage of his career, but at least he's seen 25 minutes or more in three straight games. Even with John Wall (knee surgery) out, there just isn't any upside here, so Gortat is much more appealing as the third center on fantasy rosters than anything more.
Feb 3 - 9:39 PM

Marcin Gortat scored 10 points with seven rebounds, three assists and one turnover in 26 minutes against the Raptors on Thursday.

The good news is he's found his groove as a guy who can play minutes in the low 20s again. He's scored in double-digit points in two straight. He's not a bad guy to have, but he won't have a wow factor.
Feb 1 - 11:34 PM

Marcin Gortat scored four points with one rebound, one assist, three turnovers and five fouls in 21 minutes against the Thunder on Thursday.

The playing time has really fallen off lately at just 19.5 minutes per game over his last four. Some of this is because of the Wizards playing from behind with coach Scott Brooks looking to go to Kelly Oubre more late in games. Gortat's drop in playing time combined with his woeful 48.5 percent from the line this month basically puts his value at rock bottom. He's typically been a very strong finisher on the season, so most owners should hold unless there's something attractive on the wire.
Jan 25 - 10:38 PM

Marcin Gortat hit just 2-of-7 shots for six points, 10 rebounds and nothing else in Monday's ugly loss to Dallas.

The Mavericks usually get destroyed by opposing centers, but Gortat couldn't make shots and played just 18 minutes. And if he can't get it done against Dallas, he's going to have trouble getting it done against anyone. He's had a rough season and hasn't played more than 20 minutes in any of his last three games. He's barely hanging onto fantasy value right now and is only owned because starting centers are so tough to come by.
Jan 22 - 11:50 PM

Marcin Gortat finished Friday's 122-112 win at Detroit with just 10 points, two rebounds and two assists across 19 minutes.

Head coach Scott Brooks said the team had a "good talk" about everyone's performance in Thursday's game, and that if the effort isn't there, players will have their minutes curtailed. Apparently Gortat fell into that boat on Friday, as he had just two personal fouls and no injury to report. If Gortat's minutes continue to be cut, it would mean more playing time for Kelly Oubre Jr., and Ian Mahinmi could potentially see a bump depending on the matchup.
Jan 19 - 10:47 PM

Marcin Gortat was held scoreless on Wednesday, going 0-of-3 from the field and 0-of-2 from the line with eight rebounds, two steals and one assist in 20 minutes.

In fairness to Gortat, his minutes were down tonight because the Wizards were getting blown out. He's shown signs of life in January and was averaging 11.4 points, 9.2 boards and 1.0 blocks in his previous five games, so this dud is nothing to worry about.
Jan 17 - 9:53 PM

Marcin Gortat was an efficient 6-of-8 from the field Saturday against the Nets, finishing with 16 points, 13 rebounds, two assists, a steal and a blocked shot over 30 minutes.

The Polish Hammer didn't disappoint on Polish Heritage Night at the Verizon Center in D.C. Before the game Gortat took pictures and honored a couple of Polish World War II veterans, and it was a huge turnout in the nation's capital. Fantasy owners were pleased with Gortat's line. He has back-to-back double-doubles for the first time since a three-game run with 10 or more points and 10 or more rebounds from Nov. 17-20. Na zdrowie, Marcin!
Jan 13 - 10:29 PM

Marcin Gortat was able to post 12 points and 11 rebounds over 27 minutes despite a bit of foul trouble on Friday against the Magic.

Gortat picked up four personal fouls in his 27 minutes, so Ian Mahinmi stepped up and posted a season-high 17 points to fill the void. He and Mahinmi had their way with the Nikola Vucevic-less (hand) Magic, and only Bismack Biyombo was offering any resistance down low. Gortat and the Wiz are back in action in a very favorable home matchup against the defensively-challenged Nets on Saturday night.
Jan 12 - 11:09 PM

Marcin Gortat finished with eight points, five rebounds, two blocked shots and an assist over 27 minutes Friday at Memphis.

Gortat had a pretty decent fantasy line for those in standard formats considering he ended up just 3-of-12 from the field. He was a nightmare for those in rotisserie play, killing field-goal percentage. He'll look to get back on track Saturday, although he'll have to contend with the likes of Giannis Antetokounmpo, John Henson and Thon Maker when the Bucks roll into town.
Jan 6 - 12:58 AM

Marcin Gortat said that he needs to be "more professional" about playing reduced minutes and sitting out down the stretch of games.

"At the end of the day, I've gotta respect it. That's a coaching decision," he said. "You can't be negative. I've been negative the last few months. Hopefully that's going to change in 2018." Gortat let his actions speak for themselves on Wednesday, scoring 21 points on 9-of-10 shooting, and he was rewarded with 29 minutes -- his highest total since mid-December.

Marcin Gortat lit up the Knicks for 21 points on 9-of-10 shooting during Wednesday's home victory, adding eight rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block.

It was the Wizards' first game vs. New York this season, and Gortat's owners must be eager for their rematch on Feb. 14. This follows up three straight single-digit scoring performances, of course, so it's hard to get too excited -- let's see if he can duplicate the feat vs. Marc Gasol and the Grizzlies on Friday.
Jan 3 - 11:47 PM

Marcin Gortat scored just two points on 1-of-6 shots with four rebounds, one turnover and nothing else on Wednesday vs. the Hawks.

Just when his fantasy owners thought he might turn things around, Gortat hits rock bottom again. Even if you include his solid Christmas day showing, he's averaging just 7.0 points, 7.6 rebounds, 0.8 assists and 1.0 blocks in 22.4 minutes over his last five. He's still a hold in 12-14 team leagues due to the shortage of reliable bigs, but these are dark days for Gortat's owners.

Marcin Gortat bounced back during the Wizards' road win on Christmas Day, posting 11 points (4-of-8 FGs, 3-of-3 FTs), 10 rebounds, two assists, two blocks and one steal in 27 minutes.

Gortat was coming off a pair of very quiet games, in which he averaged 6.0 points and 5.0 rebounds with zero assists, steals or blocks. Those were both blowouts, though, and his typical role in the 26-30 minute range is good enough for late-round value in most fantasy settings. It helps that he's been one of the most durable players in the NBA throughout his career.
