The Wizards have officially signed Johnny O'Bryant.

It's likely just a training camp deal for O'Bryant, but even if he makes the team, he's not going to see minutes right out of the gate. O'Bryant averaged 3.0 points and 2.7 rebounds for the Bucks last season in 13.0 minutes per game.

Johnny O'Bryant will sign a deal with the Washington Wizards.

Terms of the contract haven't been disclosed yet, but it's likely just a training camp deal. The Wizards only have two power forwards in Markieff Morris and Andrew Nicholson, so O'Bryant could make the 15-man roster with a strong camp. Regardless, he won't be a fantasy option in 2016-17.

The Lakers had Johnny O'Bryant in as part of their free agent minicamp on Wednesday.

O'Bryant has been weighing his option after being waived by the Bucks, but it doesn't sound like he'd see many minutes with the Lakers. "I don’t think we’re looking at players here that would be in the rotation, although you never know," general manager Mitch Kupchak said. "They come to camp and earn whatever they can get." O'Bryant will likely get a training camp invite from an NBA team, but he doesn't have any fantasy value at this point in time.

Johnny O'Bryant's agent said his client is still exploring his options for the 2016-17 season.

O'Bryant has received interest after being released by the Bucks, but the 23-year-old is waiting for a guaranteed contract according to his agent. "We’re still exploring our options,’’ Gerald Collier said. "There are four or five teams that are showing interest. We want to get a roster spot, a guaranteed deal.’’ While Bryant will likely hook on with an NBA team, he won't have much fantasy value as a bench player with his new team.

Bucks waive F/C Johnny O'Bryant.

He's started 19 games in his career, but he's only a 39.5 percent shooter from the field. O'Bryant's roster spot was always in trouble with the drafting of Thon Maker.

Johnny O'Bryant returned to the bench on Friday and only managed to produce seven points on 3-of-5 shooting (1-of-1 from the stripe), without offering any other statistics through 11 minutes of action.

O'Bryant played 30 minutes in a spot-start on Tuesday, but he went back to his irrelevant bench role tonight. O'Bryant is far too inconsistent to warrant a roster spot in most leagues, particularly with Jason Kidd at the helm constantly tinkering with his rotations.

Johnny O'Bryant is moving to the bench on Friday against the Celtics.

He should still get some run, but he will likely be in the lower 20s tonight with the Bucks going small here. O'Bryant isn't the worst stream for boards and some points.
Fri, Apr 8, 2016 06:21:00 PM

Johnny O'Bryant played 30 minutes as a fill-in starter on Tuesday, scoring 12 points on 6-of-10 shooting with seven rebounds, one assist and one turnover.

Kris Middleton (thigh) was out of commission and Jason Kidd opted for a big frontcourt of Greg Monroe, O'Bryant and Jabari Parker. It didn't work out, as the Bucks were destroyed by 29 points on their home court, and O'Bryant is likely headed back to the bench vs. Boston on Friday.

Johnny O'Bryant will move into the starting lineup for Tuesday's game against the Cavs, sending Damien Inglis back to the bench.

Khris Middleton (thigh) will sit out Tuesday's game, which is why O'Bryant is drawing the start, although O'Bryant is an unattractive option in most leagues despite the increased opportunity. Through three starts this season, O'Bryant has compiled measly averages of 7.3 points, 5.0 boards and not much else on 41.2 percent shooting.

Johnny O'Bryant (personal) is unlikely to play on Friday against the Heat.

He is expecting his first child today. With O'Bryant likely out, that should mean more Jabari Parker in the starting lineup while the Bucks could go smaller, especially with Hassan Whiteside (hip) out.
Fri, Jan 29, 2016 06:28:00 PM

Johnny O'Bryant played a career-high 34 minutes against the Nuggets on Wednesday with 11 points, nine rebounds, three assists and one block.

Wow, that's a lot of minutes and he crushed his previous career high of 28. Jabari Parker (knee) was resting tonight, so O'Bryant won't be getting minutes often. Plus, his numbers as a starter last year were pretty bad.
Thu, Nov 12, 2015 12:41:00 AM

Johnny O'Bryant is listed as the starter to face the Nuggets.

He won't play much and it'll be Giannis Antetokounmpo playing a lot of minutes at the four tonight.
Wed, Nov 11, 2015 07:44:00 PM

Johnny O'Bryant will come off the bench for Monday's game vs. the Nets.

The Bucks are going small and will insert Jerryd Bayless in at shooting guard, but O'Bryant was going to lose his spot anyways because Jabari Parker (knee) will return on Wednesday. O'Bryant is not an option in fantasy leagues.
Mon, Nov 2, 2015 06:54:00 PM

Johnny O'Bryant will again start at power forward for Sunday's game against the Raptors.

Jabari Parker still isn't ready to make his regular-season debut, so it'll be O'Bryant, Chris Copeland and Giannis Antetokounmpo manning the four-spot for the Bucks on Sunday. O'Bryant failed to do much with this starting role on Friday, putting up just nine points, two rebounds, two assists and a steal through 28 minutes of action, so despite the starting role, he's not worth deploying in almost any league.
