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.
Oct 23 - 2:14 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.

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.
Oct 20 - 1:06 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.

DeJuan Blair (knee soreness) did not practice on Monday.

Blair has dealt with knee issues throughout his career, and this is likely no different. He's not relevant in any fantasy format.
Oct 12 - 1:00 PM

DeJuan Blair (sore knee) has been ruled out for Sunday's preseason game vs. Paschoalotto Bauru.

Blair has never been much of a factor in standard fantasy leagues, and that's not likely to change this season playing limited minutes behind Marcin Gortat.
Oct 11 - 4:49 PM

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

Blair showed up in shape and the extent of his knee soreness isn't known. Regardless, he won't have much value while Marcin Gortat is healthy.
Oct 9 - 5:41 PM

DeJuan Blair feels that he has a big opportunity to impress the Wizards this summer.

"I have a bigger opportunity to get on the court and show what I can do," Blair said. "I think I can help this team out a lot. It’s a pretty big year for me, where I am in my career, myself, for my dignity, for everything. So I won’t go crazy." Blair lost 30 pounds this summer and is hoping to get in the rotation with Kevin Seraphin no longer around. For now, Blair still isn't worth a look in almost any league.

DeJuan Blair lost 30 pounds this summer.

Perhaps this is yet another sign that the Wizards are going to push the pace more this season. As great as this is for Blair, he's still not worth drafting in almost any league.
Sep 28 - 2:29 PM

DeJuan Blair expressed displeasure with his first season in Washington.

"It's like I wasn't here," Blair said. Considering he saw the court in just 29 games and averaged a whopping 1.9 points to pair with 1.9 rebounds, Blair paints an accurate picture. He can be ignored in all formats.
Sep 28 - 11:46 AM

The Wizards could potentially waive DeJuan Blair in order to free up some cap space.

Blair averaged just 6.2 minutes per game in 29 appearances last season, so it's clear that he is not a big part of Washington's plans moving forward. Blair likely wouldn't have any fantasy value on any other NBA team, so he can still be ignored in fantasy leagues for the foreseeable future.

DeJuan Blair will be inactive for Game 1 against the Hawks on Sunday.

Blair hasn't played in the postseason yet, so this isn't surprising. Drew Gooden will continue to be the primary big off the bench for the Wizards.
May 3 - 12:54 PM

DeJuan Blair (personal) will not be available for Sunday's game vs. the Rockets.

This will be his third straight game away from the team and it's still unclear when he will return. Blair wasn't in the rotation anyways, so his absence won't make an impact in fantasy leagues. Leave Blair on the wire.
Mar 29 - 12:15 PM

DeJuan Blair is away from the team for personal reasons, and he will not play Friday vs. the Hornets.

Blair's role with the Wizards is negligible, so there aren't any fantasy implications with him out. He has no business being owned in any league.
