Alan Anderson (ankle) is still not close to making a return to the court.

"He's getting closer. I can't give you a couple weeks [timetable]. He's not been on the floor in practice. He's doing a lot of individual stuff on the floor but hasn't reached that point," Wittman said. "He's got to get on the floor. He hasn't done a thing all year. We got to get him practice on the floor, up and down, bodies around him." Anderson will likely be brought along slowly in Washington, and he can safely remain on the waiver wire in all leagues.

Garrett Temple played 32 minutes off the Wizards' bench on Tuesday, but didn't do much with them, finishing with five points, one rebound, one assist and a 3-pointer.

He's playing 31 minutes a game over his last five, but averaging just 6.4 points, 2.0 rebounds, 1.8 assists, 0.8 steals and 0.6 3-pointers. The return of Bradley Beal to the starting lineup doesn't help him, as Temple is now going to come off the bench, while the absence of Gary Neal (leg injury) should give him a small boost. But as long as Temple's not starting, he loses what little appeal he had.
Feb 9 - 11:30 PM

Ramon Sessions played just 12 minutes and had seven points, two rebounds and one assist on Tuesday.

Sessions usually puts up decent numbers when he gets 20-25 minutes a game, but he's played 15 or fewer minutes in three of his last five games, and Garrett Temple looks like a better bet off the Wizards' bench.
Feb 9 - 11:21 PM

Nene returned from a calf injury on Tuesday and hit 1-of-5 shots in 17 minutes to finish with four points, two rebounds and a block.

There's a chance Nene could make an impact at some point if he can ever get fully healthy, but the simultaneous return of Kris Humphries doesn't really help. Leave him on waivers for now.
Feb 9 - 11:19 PM

Kris Humphries returned from a knee injury and played four scoreless minutes on Tuesday.

He's been out for more than a month and will be worked back into action slowly. Nothing to see here, folks.
Feb 9 - 11:14 PM

Bradley Beal moved back into the starting lineup on Tuesday and responded with 26 points, three rebounds, two assists, four steals, a block and five 3-pointers on 8-of-14 shooting.

His line will likely get lost in the shadows of John Wall's big night, but Beal was pretty spectacular. He'd been coming off the bench since returning from his leg injury (as well as a concussion and broken nose) in mid-January but returned to his rightful place in the starting five tonight. He's rolling right now too, averaging 21.2 points, 2.4 rebounds, 2.0 assists, 1.4 steals and 2.4 3-pointers on 55 percent shooting over his last five, making him worth the wait.
Feb 9 - 11:12 PM

John Wall had the early line of the night with 28 points, five rebounds, 17 assists, a steal and three 3-pointers on 10-of-24 shooting in 43 minutes of Tuesday's thrilling win over the Knicks.

The 17 dimes aren't even a season high, as he had 19 of them back on Dec. 21, but he is rolling right now, double-doubling in four straight games and averaging 25.4 points, 6.2 rebounds, 11.0 assists, 1.8 steals, 0.8 blocks and 2.2 3-pointers on 50 percent shooting in February. And in case that wasn't enough, he also committed just one turnover tonight in his 43 minutes.
Feb 9 - 11:06 PM

Marcin Gortat had 14 points, 10 rebounds and two blocks on 6-of-9 shooting against Robin Lopez and the Knicks on Tuesday.

That makes three straight double-doubles for Gortat and he and Ro-Lo had a good battle tonight, putting up similar lines. He's recorded double-doubles in four straight games twice this season and he'll be looking to add another one to that list against the Bucks on Thursday.
Feb 9 - 10:58 PM

Kris Humphries (knee) will be available to play Tuesday vs. the Knicks.

Humphries will more than likely be eased back into things after spending over a month on the sidelines, and with averages of just 6.7 points and 4.2 boards on the year, Kris isn't worth owning in any setting.
Feb 9 - 6:58 PM

Nene (calf) and Kris Humphries (knee) will be available to play Tuesday vs. the Knicks.

Nene isn't really capable of playing much more than 20 minutes, which isn't enough time for him to produce reliable fantasy value in most settings. Humphries will likely be eased back into the rotation following a month long absence, and he isn't worth owning in most leagues.
Feb 9 - 6:41 PM

Gary Neal (sore right leg) will miss Tuesday's game against the Knicks.

Neal was unable to go through shootaround and will sit for Tuesday's matchup against the Knicks. Garrett Temple will pick up a few extra minutes with Neal out, but isn't worth a start in standard fantasy leagues.
Feb 9 - 1:22 PM

Gary Neal (sore right leg) was extremely limited at shootaround on Tuesday.

We'll keep an eye on his status, but Neal looks to be doubtful for Tuesday's game against the Knicks. He's not an option in standard fantasy leagues anyway, so fantasy owners can feel free to move on to the next blurb.
Feb 9 - 12:35 PM

Kris Humphries (knee) practiced for the second consecutive day on Tuesday.

We're considering Humphries questionable for Tuesday's game against the Knicks, but all signs are pointing to him being available. With Nene on a minutes limit, Hump would be fighting for minutes with Drew Gooden and DeJuan Blair if active, though none would be worth a start in standard fantasy leagues.
Feb 9 - 12:32 PM

Bradley Beal will start against the Knicks on Tuesday.

Beal will return to the starting lineup against the Knicks and said he'll play around 30 minutes on Tuesday. While Beal is always an injury risk for his fantasy owners, it's safe to start him for Tuesday's game.
Feb 9 - 12:19 PM

Nene (calf) plans to play in Tuesday's game against the Knicks.

Nene told reporters that he'll "play a little bit" against the Knicks, so we're considering him probable for Tuesday night. With Nene apparently limited, Drew Good and Dejuan Blair will continue to see a slight uptick in minutes.
