Jared Dudley scored a season-high 13 points against the Bucks on Wednesday with seven rebounds, two assists, one block and three 3-pointers.
Revenge game? This also isn't too much of a garbage-time special with only five of his points coming in the fourth quarter and Dudley not even playing in the final 4:33 of this game. This is really the first blip on the radar for Dudley and he would only be worth a pickup in deep leagues if Otto Porter needs to miss time. Porter seems like he's OK, though. Nov 17 - 10:02 PM

Jared Dudley (back surgery) went scoreless in 18 minutes vs. the Knicks, contributing three rebounds, one assist and one steal in the Wizards' home loss.

Randy Wittman said he pushed Dudley too hard by giving him 25 minutes on Friday, and he's likely to be eased toward a 25-30 minute role over the next few weeks. The fact that Dudley played in back-to-back games says good things about his health, but he's not a standard-league option with Otto Porter starting at SF.

Jared Dudley (back) made his Wizards debut on Friday, logging 25 minutes en route to six points, six boards, two assists, one steal and one block.

Nights like these will be the high water mark for Dudley coming off the bench, and he'll need to go on quite a run to get on the fantasy radar in most formats.

Jared Dudley (back) said he wasn't surprised he received a DNP-CD on Wednesday.

He said he's not up to game speed yet. Kris Humphries played a whopping 25 of his 26 total minutes with the starting lineup, so adding Dudley may take some minutes away from him. Dudley can be left on the wire in most leagues.
Oct 29 - 8:46 PM

Jared Dudley (back) did not play in Wednesday's season opener.

It looks like a precautionary DNP-CD, as Dudley said earlier in the day that he has "no pain whatsoever ... nothing limiting me." He also suggested that he's "two or three weeks away" from being the same player he was pre-injury, so it's no surprise that the Wizards are playing it safe. He's more of a deep-league stash with Otto Porter dominating minutes as the starting SF. Consider Dudley day-to-day.

Jared Dudley (back surgery) will not have a minutes restriction entering the regular-season.

Dudley underwent back surgery this offseason, but he was able to get into Washington's final two preseason games, and he'll have zero restrictions when the regular-season tips. However, Dudley's game doesn't really translate to fantasy hoops, so it's safe to leave him untouched on the waiver wire in standard leagues while Otto Porter is healthy.

Jared Dudley (back surgery) returned to action on Wednesday but went scoreless with three boards, one assist and five fouls in 12 minutes.

He had surgery to repair a herniated lower disc in late July, but was able to get back on the court at the beginning of his 3-4 month timetable. Dudley may be useful in the deepest leagues once fully recovered, but he's off the radar for most owners while Otto Porter (30 minutes) is healthy.

Jared Dudley (back) will play on Wednesday against the Heat.

Marcin Gortat tweeted earlier that Dudley would play, so he's a go-to source for Wizards lineup info, apparently. Dudley should get minutes at the four and could be maximized with John Wall. Give him a look in 20-team leagues.
Oct 21 - 6:46 PM

Jared Dudley (back) might play in Wednesday's game vs. the Heat.

"It's not up to me any more, to be honest with you. I'm good to go. I think it's possibly a coach's decision," Dudley said on Monday. "I think that's the next progression. I went live today. I got a lot of reps, probably the most reps I've had. I feel really good defensively. Offensively, I got to get more legs. If I don't go Wednesday, I would be shocked if I didn't go at least Friday." Dudley is very close to making a return, and he has now been practicing for two weeks. However, he won't be a reliable fantasy option in a limited role off the bench.
Oct 21 - 12:28 PM

Jared Dudley (back) went through a full practice on Wednesday, and said that he's shooting to play in Washington's final two preseason games.

Additionally, Dudley said that he prefers playing stretch-four, as it's harder for other power forwards to guard him as opposed to small forwards. He'll have a limited role off the bench for the Wizards this season, so he's not worth considering in standard leagues.
Oct 14 - 1:34 PM

Jared Dudley (back) participated in individual drills during Monday's practice.

Dudley had offseason back surgery, and he's just now preparing to return to full-contact practice with two weeks to go until the regular season. While the veteran is targeting the season opener, he may have to wait just a little longer depending on how his body responds to increased activity over the next couple of weeks.
Oct 12 - 1:06 PM

Jared Dudley (back) will not play in Sunday's preseason game vs. Paschoalotto Bauru.

Dudley is on track to be ready for the regular-season, but he won't have a large enough role with the Wizards to warrant a draft selection in standard leagues.
Oct 11 - 4:55 PM

Jared Dudley (back) participated in some contact drills for the second consecutive day on Thursday.

Dudley has not had any setbacks in his recovery from offseason back surgery, and he's on track to be a full participant during next week's practices. He'll likely be ready when the regular-season tips, but playing in a reserve role in Washington will make him a non-option in most leagues.
Oct 8 - 4:15 PM

Jared Dudley (back) was able to do "a little" contact at practice on Wednesday.

In case you missed it, Dudley is recovering from offseason back surgery and is hoping to resume full contact practices on Oct. 13. It sounds like there is a legitimate chance that he will be ready for the start of the season, but he won't be a factor in fantasy leagues as he will likely have a limited role off the bench.
Oct 7 - 3:06 PM

Jared Dudley (back) said that he expects to return to contact practice on Oct. 13.

Dudley sat out of practice on Friday, but it was a planned rest day. Dudley had back surgery in July, but he is still hoping to defy the odds and to be ready in time for the season opener. Still, Dudley's role will likely be limited and there is no reason to pay him any attention outside of deeper leagues.
