Brandon Jennings gave the Wizards a lift on Wednesday with 10 points, four rebounds and two assists in 17 minutes off the bench.
Jennings got hot at a perfect time in the fourth quarter, with a string of huge offensive plays, helping to erase the Hawks' late lead. It should be mentioned that he was being defended by Jose Calderon during his spurt, and his defense tonight was questionable at best, so skepticism is warranted. Apr 19 - 10:11 PM

Brandon Jennings started Monday's game against the Pistons, but only scored two points with six assists and two rebounds in 28 minutes.

On the bright side, he did swipe five steals and finished with zero turnovers. Other than that, it was a brutal night for Jennings as he hit just 1-of-6 shots despite a favorable matchup with Ish Smith. John Wall (quad) sounded like he was pretty sore on Monday, and considering the Wizards are locked in as the No. 4 seed, Jennings could get another start in the season finale on Wednesday.
Apr 10 - 11:40 PM

Brandon Jennings and Kelly Oubre will move into the starting five for Monday's game against the Pistons, with both John Wall (quad) and Otto Porter (back) unavailable.

Both Jennings and Oubre figure to log heavy minutes tonight with Wall and Porter unavailable, so both of them make sense as potential DFS targets, with Jennings being the more attractive option. Tomas Satoransky will also pick up some extended minutes operating as Jennings' primary backup.

Brandon Jennings scored 18 points with three rebounds, nine assists and four 3-pointers in 21 minutes against the Nets on Friday.

This was about the garbage time with the Wizards having this one in the bag. Plus, John Wall was also dealing with migraines in this game. Feel free to ignore this outing from Jennings.

Wizards' head coach Scott Brooks is encouraging Brandon Jennings to increase his shot attempts.

"I think this is the first coach to ever tell me to shoot more," said Jennings. "Honestly, when I first came into the league, shooting wasn't really that popular where guys didn't really like point guards to shoot that much. Now it's like 'shoot the ball.' I've gotta get back to that." Brooks may be playing with fire a bit by asking a career 38.9 percent shooter to let it fly with regularity, but Jennings probably appreciates the confidence boost. Still, as long as Bradley Beal and John Wall are healthy, Jennings won't be worth a roster spot in most settings.
Mar 8 - 10:48 AM

Brandon Jennings was ejected from Tuesday's game vs. the Suns.

Jennings confronted Jared Dudley after the Phoenix forward made contact with Jason Smith, but Jennings was simply talking trash and won't have to worry about a suspension. He finished with two points and one assist in five minutes.
Mar 7 - 9:56 PM

Brandon Jennings made his Wizards debut on Friday with no points and two assists in 10 minutes.

No combo-guard minutes for Jennings in this game. He is still not going to be worth owning unless John Wall is on the sidelines.
Mar 3 - 11:45 PM

Brandon Jennings will get playing time next to John Wall.

Wall has the size to guard twos, so this makes sense on that end. Plus, the Wizards do not have much depth behind both Wall and Brad Beal, which means Jennings should be looking at minutes in the low 20s once he gets going. He's still not really a strong play in fantasy while the starters are healthy.
Mar 3 - 5:33 PM

Brandon Jennings will make his Wizards debut Friday night vs. the Raptors.

It is likely only a matter of time before Jennings leapfrogs Tomas Satoransky and Trey Burke as John Wall's primary backup. However, with the dynamic backcourt of Wall and Bradley Beal playing as many minutes as they can handle, there will only limited minutes left over for Jennings off the Wizards bench. Thus, Jennings is not worth a roster spot in most fantasy leagues.
Mar 3 - 12:52 PM

Brandon Jennings will not play Wednesday vs. the Raptors.

He is officially a Wizard now, but he wasn't able to meet up with the team in Toronto for tonight's game, so his Washington debut will be delayed until Friday. Jennings will likely step into a sixth man role with the Wizards, but as long as John Wall and Bradley Beal are healthy, he won't be worth owning in most leagues.
Mar 1 - 6:47 PM

Brandon Jennings is expected to sign with the Wizards once he clears waivers on Wednesday, according to sources of Adrian Wojnarowski.

He's reportedly reached a verbal agreement with the Wizards, so now it's just a matter of him clearing waivers and putting pen to paper. Jennings will have a similar role in Washington to the one he had in New York, meaning he's not going to be worth a roster spot in most leagues.
Feb 28 - 5:30 PM

The Pistons are not interested in signing Brandon Jennings, according to coach Stan Van Gundy.

"With Ish [Smith] here, I don’t think it would be a fit. From Brandon’s standpoint, my guess is he wants to go somewhere he can play," Van Gundy said. Van Gundy was of the belief that Jennings would land in Charlotte, but the Hornets seem content to stick with Briante Weber. The Wizards are now reportedly the favorite to land Jennings.
Feb 28 - 10:35 AM

The Hornets are reportedly pleased with their Briante Weber signing, and they will not pursue Brandon Jennings as a free agent.

Assuming Jennings clears waivers, he'll then be free to join a team of his choosing, and so far the Wizards have expressed interest. Jennings could potentially earn a sixth man-type role in Washington, but it's unlikely he'd generate much fantasy value at all while John Wall and Bradley Beal are healthy.
Feb 27 - 3:56 PM

The Wizards will reportedly make a bid for Brandon Jennings.

An earlier report stemming from Stan Van Gundy implied that Jennings was a lock to go to Charlotte, but esteemed reporter David Aldridge is now adding that Washington has entered the equation. Jennings would just be a backup with either club, so there's not much incentive to take a flier on him in standard leagues.
Feb 27 - 2:58 PM

Pistons coach Stan Van Gundy said Brandon Jennings will sign with the Hornets.

SVG coached Jennings in Detroit last season and said he spoke with his agent on Monday morning after the Knicks released him. It's possible that another team could grab Jennings off waivers, but SVG sounded pretty confident that the PG would end up in Charlotte. The Hornets just signed Briante Weber to a 10-day deal, but Jennings would be the clear favorite to back up Kemba Walker in Charlotte.
