John Wall scored 17 points on 8-of-16 shooting with 15 assists in Friday's loss to the Spurs.

This was his second game in a row with 15 dimes and he added two rebounds, three steals and one triple in 37 minutes. Wall did miss practice on Thursday, but the Wizards are just managing his reps to keep him fresh for the games. The Wizards are only 6-12, so they will need to turn things around in order for Wall's fantasy value to be safe when it matters the most.
Dec 3 - 2:12 AM

Bradley Beal scored 23 points with five 3-pointers in Friday's loss to the Spurs.

He somehow finished without a block, steal, rebound or assist, but he shot 7-of-11 from the field and 4-of-5 from the line. Beal is on a tear right now and has scored 23 or more points in four straight games. The Wizards are managing his reps in practice, so hopefully that will keep him fresh for the long run.
Dec 3 - 2:09 AM

Markieff Morris (ankle) scored 12 points with four rebounds, three assists and one block in 38 minutes vs. the Spurs on Friday.

He twisted his left ankle on Wednesday, but it's not the same ankle that bothered him earlier in the season. Considering he played 38 minutes, it's safe to assume that his injury is very minor. Morris shot 4-of-7 from the field and 4-of-4 from the line, but did turn the ball over four times. He's been a low-end asset in standard leagues so far, but he has room to grow.
Dec 3 - 2:05 AM

Marcin Gortat went off for 21 points on 8-of-16 shooting with 18 rebounds, two assists, two blocks and two steals before fouling out in 42 minutes against the Spurs on Friday.

He's averaging a career-high 35.2 minutes per game and this was the second time this season that he played 42 minutes. Ian Mahinmi (knee) can't stay healthy and coach Scott Brooks doesn't trust his bench at all, but Gortat's owners aren't complaining. He's flirting with top-50 value in standard leagues and his owners just have to hope that the Wizards can remain relevant in the East.
Dec 3 - 1:58 AM

Markieff Morris (ankle) will start against the Spurs on Friday.

The Wizards made it clear he only has a "twisted" ankle and not a sprain, so Morris had a good shot to play tonight. He should get a good amount of run and is coming off a 37-minute, 19-point Wednesday. We'll see if he can keep LaMarcus Aldridge in check tonight.
Dec 2 - 7:38 PM

Ian Mahinmi (knee) will not play Friday night vs. the Spurs.

Mahinmi has appeared in just one game this season and holds no fantasy value. Jason Smith should see a few additional minutes.
Dec 2 - 1:03 PM

John Wall was given the day off for practice on Thursday.

He's fine after playing 44 minutes against the Thunder on Wednesday. The Wizards wanted to keep Wall's minutes down, but that hasn't happened with his 40.2 per game over his last five. He also led the team in usage rate over that span with a 43.1 assist percentage. He'll get plenty of minutes against the Spurs on Friday.
Dec 1 - 3:15 PM

Bradley Beal was given the day off from practice on Thursday.

He played a whopping 42 minutes and is playing some of the best ball of his career. Beal has a very impressive 61.6 true shooting percentage and a 29.0 usage rate over his 39.6 minutes per game in his last six. He's also climbed into the top 50 for standard leagues with a sharp upward trend in his last two weeks. He'll be all set for Friday against the Spurs.
Dec 1 - 3:11 PM

Ian Mahinmi (right knee) received treatment on Thursday.

He had surgery on his left knee, so it's not an aggravation to his knee. Considering the Wizards aren't too thin, they may want to bring Mahinmi along slowly.
Dec 1 - 3:07 PM

Markieff Morris (left ankle) received treatment on Thursday.

He's likely going to be listed as questionable on Friday due to his twisted ankle on Wednesday. Morris had a right ankle injury last month, but this one appears to be more minor than that one. If he's out on Friday against the Spurs, Jason Smith would get more run while Andrew Nicholson could get in the mix. We'll get an update at shootaround on Friday.
Dec 1 - 3:05 PM

Bradley Beal scored 31 points against the Thunder during a 126-115 overtime loss on Wednesday, adding five rebounds, one assist, two steals and four 3-pointers in 42 minutes.

He was red hot late and the Thunder made sure to have him covered down the stretch. "They were so focused on me they were leaving guys open," Beal said about the OKC defense. He also had the tall task to guard Russell Westbrook for some clutch minutes, including Westbrook's clutch trey in regulation. Beal is cooking over his last five, averaging 28.6 points, 4.6 boards, 3.4 assists, 1.0 steals and 4.2 treys on 50.5 percent from the field. He could stay hot all year and needs to stay healthy.
Dec 1 - 12:30 AM

John Wall played 44 minutes against the Thunder on Wednesday with 15 points, six boards, 15 assists, one steal, one block and two 3-pointers.

The Wizards probably should've had this game with a seven-point lead with four minutes left. After the loss, Wall said this was the toughest loss of the season, which may hurt even more for coach Scott Brooks against his former team. Wall getting 44 minutes tonight clearly indicates the Wizards have no intention of limiting him right now.
Dec 1 - 12:23 AM

Markieff Morris twisted his left ankle against the Thunder on Wednesday, finishing with 19 points, seven rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block in 37 minutes.

Morris had a right ankle injury earlier this month, so this is something different. The Wizards will re-evaluate Morris on Thursday and will see if he can play against the Spurs on Friday. If he's out, we could see more Otto Porter at the four, Jason Smith could play more and maybe Andrew Nicholson gets in the mix.
Dec 1 - 12:20 AM

Danuel House (wrist) suffered a fractured right wrist.

He's going to be out indefinitely. Most wrist fractures require around 4-6 weeks off, so House could be back in January. He's not in the rotation.
Nov 30 - 6:50 PM

Ian Mahinmi (right knee) will not play against the Thunder on Wednesday.

He did not go through shootaround and the Wizards will just be safe with Mahinmi. He had surgery on left knee, so this is something different. There will be a couple extra minutes for Jason Smith tonight.
