Bradley Beal's 40 points were not enough during a 120-112 loss to the 76ers on Friday, adding four rebounds, two assists, two steals and two 3-pointers in 42 minutes.

He put on a scoring clinic with all sorts of fancy baskets for the Philly crowd. While John Wall is struggling a tad with his efficiency lately, Beal is flourishing with 26.3 points, 3.5 boards, 3.6 assists, 1.1 steals and 3.6 treys on 56.2 percent from the field in his last 10. He is above league average as a shooter in basically every area of the floor, including his 73.3 percent at the rim in that span. He should have been an All-Star and is having a breakout season for his owners.

John Wall scored 29 points with eight rebounds, 14 assists, two blocks and six turnovers in a loss at Philadelphia on Friday.

He lived at the line with a career-high 13 makes in this win. On the other hand, Wall has struggled from the field in his last 10 games, making just 40.0 percent from the field with averages of 21.5 points, 3.7 boards, 12.9 assists, 1.5 steals, 4.2 turnover and 1.1 treys. The best part of his season is likely behind him after a monster December, but Wall is still an elite fantasy option.

Kelly Oubre scored three points with one rebound in 19 minutes against the 76ers on Friday.

Bojan Bogdanovic probably won't hurt Oubre's minutes, but it should hurt his usage as a scorer. He won't be worth owning while the Wizards are remotely healthy in the first unit.
Feb 24 - 10:16 PM

Ian Mahinmi played seven minutes with three rebounds and one block against the 76ers on Friday.

Just because he has a 15-17 minute cap, doesn't mean he'll get to that number. Mahinmi won't be worth owning in almost any league while the durable Marcin Gortat is healthy.
Feb 24 - 10:12 PM

Bojan Bogdanovic made his Wizards debut on Friday with two points, four rebounds, one assist, one steal and one block in 18 minutes.

If you want to look at a positive, at least he had one block -- he had just three blocks in his previous 1,482 minutes this season with Brooklyn. Bogdanovic's fantasy value falls off a cliff on his new team.
Feb 24 - 10:10 PM

Ian Mahinmi will be capped at 15-17 minutes for the next two weeks.

He's probably not going to play more than that even when he is 100 percent. Marcin Gortat has sneakily been one of the best centers in the Eastern Conference, so don't expect him to lose playing time.
Feb 24 - 5:45 PM

Coach Scott Brooks said Bojan Bogdanovic will be a "big-time" shooter off the bench for the Wizards.

Brooks said they like his size, how he cuts and how he cuts off pin-downs. Still, it's all about the shooting for Bogie. On the season, he's made 39.4 percent on catch-and-shoot treys compared to 28.4 percent on pull-ups. Bogdanovic is not going to have much value in most leagues.
Feb 24 - 4:24 PM

Bojan Bogdanovic will be active and is expected to make his Wizards debut Friday vs. the Sixers.

Bogdanovic was the Nets second-leading scorer and was also second on the team in minutes played. However, he will see far fewer minutes and scoring opportunities in Washington, as he will be coming off the bench behind rising star Otto Porter.
Feb 24 - 11:53 AM

Bojan Bogdanovic could play on Friday even without a practice session.

The trade is official and he should be active, but his playing time should still be unclear. Bogdanovic will add some much needed bench scoring to the Wizards, but his numbers are certainly going to drop on his new team. He has lost most of his fantasy value.
Feb 23 - 12:24 PM

The Wizards are reportedly shopping Trey Burke.

Washington is asking for a second-round pick, but even that sounds ambitious. Burke is shooting 38.9 percent from the field in his career and has struggled on both sides of the court. If he's moved and the Wizards don't get a PG in return, Tomas Satoransky will get a bump.
Feb 23 - 9:47 AM

Wizards coach Scott Brooks said that Ian Mahinmi's playing time will increase "a little, not a lot."

Washington's offseason acquisition has averaged 13.3 minutes per game since his return on Feb. 8. Brooks has vowed to keep Jason Smith in the rotation, and as long as Smith and Marcin Gortat are healthy it's unlikely that Mahinmi will emerge as a standard-league asset.
Feb 22 - 8:08 PM

The Wizards acquired Chris McCullough on Wednesday.

After an ACL tear in his last season in Syracuse, the Nets were able to get McCullough at 29 in the 2015 draft. He did show some promise late last season, but just was never really to get it going outside of his big D-League outings. He won't be in the rotation. The Nets will likely be looking to sign another young power forward on a 10-day deal at some point.
Feb 22 - 4:08 PM

The Wizards will acquire Bojan Bogdanovic and Chris McCullough in a trade with the Nets, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical.

The Nets will get back Andrew Nicholson, Marcus Thornton and a lottery-protected 2017 first-round pick. The Wizards lost out on the Lou Williams sweepstakes, so they'll go after the next easy trade target out there. Bogdanovic's playing time was really trending up with 29.4 minutes per game in February, averaging 15.1 points, 5.3 boards, 1.6 assists and 1.7 treys. Obviously his value will be falling off a cliff in fantasy. Meanwhile, guys like Caris LeVert, Sean Kilpatrick, Joe Harris and Thornton should all be looking to pick up some of that playing time. Most owners can take a wait-and-see approach, especially with Jeremy Lin likely to return.
Feb 22 - 3:59 PM

Chris McCullough has been sent down for yet another D-League stint.

It's possible McCullough could emerge with some value if Brook Lopez is dealt at the deadline, but currently, his fantasy value is non-existent.
Feb 22 - 11:36 AM

Teams pursuing Bojan Bogdanovic have reportedly been ramping up their offers, and it's getting to the point where Brooklyn will be choosing the best deal available.

Thus far we've only heard that the Wizards were interested in acquiring Bogdanovic, but Woj is reporting that multiple teams have been involved. It seems likely that Bogdanovic will be dealt at the deadline, and his value would likely take a bit of a hit playing outside of Brooklyn. A Bogdanovic departure could clear the way for Rondae Hollis-Jefferson to flirt with minutes in the 30s, so he's someone to consider stashing away in deep leagues ahead of the deadline.
