DeJuan Blair played 23 minutes off the bench against the Pacers on Friday with 12 points, six rebounds, one assist and two steals.
That's a pretty solid effort for a guy who wasn't in the rotation earlier this season. Blair played the most minutes among the big men tonight, but that is partially due to garbage time. Marcin Gortat (knee) is only day-to-day, so fantasy owners shouldn't be too aggressive on adding Blair, Drew Gooden or Nene. Jan 15 - 9:37 PM

DeJuan Blair played 13 minutes against the Bulls on Monday with eight points, three rebounds, one assist and no turnovers.

The Wizards bench came up pretty big today, especially in the frontcourt. Blair has been on the injury report for much of this season due to a knee issue, so he likely wouldn't get big minutes unless the Wizards are totally decimated.
Jan 11 - 10:57 PM

DeJuan Blair (knee) will be a game-time decision vs. the Raptors on Friday.

Blair was on the active list for Wednesday's game but he never left the bench. He's unlikely to be part of the rotation with Nene back in action and Drew Gooden (calf) also expected to play limited minutes off the bench.
Jan 8 - 5:23 PM

DeJuan Blair (knee) was available to play on Wednesday but he picked up a DNP-CD.

Blair wasn't part of Randy Wittman's rotation until injuries swept through the frontcourt, and he vanished again tonight with Nene returning to action.
Jan 6 - 11:30 PM

DeJuan Blair (knee) is active against the Cavs on Wednesday.

He might not play because Nene (calf) has a good chance to play on Wednesday. Blair can be ignored almost everywhere.
Jan 6 - 5:32 PM

DeJuan Blair (knee) will not play vs. Miami on Sunday.

You wouldn't notice if Blair was on or off the injury report, an illustration of his relevance in fantasy leagues.
Jan 3 - 4:27 PM

DeJuan Blair (knee) is questionable to play against the Heat on Sunday.

He missed Friday with his knee injury and it doesn't sound serious. If Kris Humphries can't play with his questionable tag, Blair might get minutes at center. He still is nowhere near the fantasy radar in almost any league.
Jan 2 - 3:32 PM

DeJuan Blair (knee) will not play against the Magic on Friday.

He probably wouldn't have been in the rotation anyway. Blair can be ignored in almost all leagues.
Jan 1 - 7:11 PM

DeJuan Blair (knee) is questionable to play against the Magic on Friday.

He's infamous for not having ACLs, but Blair doesn't have too many knee injuries in his career. Blair isn't worth owning in almost any league.
Jan 1 - 5:22 PM

DeJuan Blair scored seven points with two rebounds in 12 minutes vs. Dallas on Sunday, and he started the second half ahead of Ryan Hollins.

He's been out of the rotation all season and is only getting minutes because the Wizards are playing without Marcin Gortat, Nene, Kris Humphries and Drew Gooden. Blair also racked up four fouls during his limited minutes and he's a very dubious option even if he starts vs. Hassan Whiteside and the Heat on Monday.

DeJuan Blair (knee) practiced in full on Tuesday, and he is on track to play Wednesday vs. the Magic.

Blair will be a negligible part of the Wizards' rotation this season, so it's safe to leave him on the waiver wire in all formats.
Tue, Oct 27, 2015 03:33:00 PM

DeJuan Blair (knee) returned to practice on Friday and should be available to play against the Wizards.

He was just battling some soreness and should be fine moving forward. Blair is an afterthought in fantasy leagues and may not be in the rotation.
Fri, Oct 23, 2015 02:14:00 PM

DeJuan Blair (knee soreness) missed practice again and will not play on Wednesday vs. the Heat.

Blair may not even be in the rotation this season, so fantasy owners can completely ignore him.
Wed, Oct 21, 2015 12:46:00 PM

DeJuan Blair (knee soreness) missed practice on Tuesday.

Blair's absence at practice likely means he won't play in Wednesday's preseason game against the Heat. We'll keep an eye on his status, but he's not worth roster in any fantasy league as his minutes will be limited as a bench player for Washington.
Tue, Oct 20, 2015 01:06:00 PM

DeJuan Blair, who has returned from his knee injury, is trying to take advantage of the new opportunity he's been presented.

"I’m just going hard," Blair said. "I’m just trying to play my game and I’ve been getting my opportunity and I’ve been trying to take advantage of every opportunity." Averaging 13 points and 8.3 rebounds in just over 16 minutes per game through three preseason contests, Blair is doing more now than he ever did during his first season in Washington. He also appears ready to accept his role, something that couldn't have been said of him during the 2014-15 campaign.
