Gortat finished with 21 points (8-16 FG, 5-6 FT), 18 rebounds, two assists, two steals and two blocks across 42 minutes in Friday's 107-105 loss to the Spurs. With backup center Ian Mahinmi (knee) still sidelined, Gortat was forced to take on another heavy minutes load, but he didn't wilt from the added playing time. The points and rebounds were both season highs for Gortat, who has already amassed 14 double-doubles in 18 contests. It's expected that the Wizards will reduce Gortat's workload eventually, but he'll remain a premium fantasy asset while coach Scott Brooks continues to hand him around 35 minutes per contest.
Gortat scored 10 points (5-7 FG) while adding 10 rebounds and an assist in 33 minutes during Saturday's 112-100 loss to the Spurs. It was the bare minimum of production to qualify, but Gortat still recorded his ninth double-double of the season. His scoring is down a bit so far, but his 12.1 boards per game would be a new career high if he can maintain that pace for the rest of the campaign.
Gortat scored 10 points (4-6 FG, 2-4 FT) while adding 16 rebounds, five blocks and four assists in 38 minutes during Saturday's 114-111 loss to the Heat. In what is an all-too-familiar refrain for Wizards fans, John Wall and Bradley Beal combined for 68 points but got almost no help from the rest of the roster, as Gortat was the only other Washington player to even creep into double digits. He continues to do his part, though. The double-double was his seventh in 12 games, while Gortat's 16 boards and five blocks were season highs.
Gortat scored 10 points (5-6 FG, 0-1 FT) and added 14 rebounds and one assist in 39 minutes during Wednesday's 109-102 loss to the 76ers. This was Gortat's fifth double-double of the season, and he has reached either 10 points or 10 rebounds in every game this season. Gortat is currently setting his career highs for minutes and rebounding, with 34.4 and 12.4 per game, respectively.
Gortat accrued 18 points (9-12 FG), 14 rebounds, two assists and one block across 35 minutes in Saturday's 106-95 loss to the Bulls. With the Wizards holding out both John Wall (rest) and Bradley Beal (rest) for the second half of the back-to-back set, there were more shots to go around for the team's complementary scorers, and Gortat and Markieff Morris (24 points) were able to take full advantage. The 12 shots and 18 points were both season highs for Gortat, who supplemented his value to daily owners by collecting 10 or more rebounds for the eighth time in nine games. He's currently holding down an average of a career-high 12.4 rebounds per game, fueled in part by coach Scott Brooks' decision to hand him a huge workload (34.4 minutes per game).
