Player Outlook

Marcin Gortat can put up dominant performances at times, as he showed by averaging 16.1 points, 9.5 rebounds and 2.3 assists per game in the month of April last season. Unfortunately, his playing time fluctuated throughout the season and his overall numbers weren't nearly so impressive. In fact, his production fell off across the board from the previous season. Still, Gortat has missed just one game over the last two seasons, and still puts up solid production over the course of a season. As a No. 2 center, he is a great target in the middle rounds on Draft Day.

  • Wizards forward Marcin Gortat tallied 15 points (6-8 FG, 3-3 FT), two assists, and five rebounds in 25 minutes in Friday's 115-104 loss to the Knicks.The Polish Hammer is back to man the middle in Washington for the third consecutive season, and looks to build a solid 2014-15 campaign in which he played all 82 games. Gortat provided superior defense intertwined with the occasional offensive outburst last season, and the Wizards figure to require more of the same from him in the upcoming campaign. The veteran center may have a new frontcourt mate in Kris Humphries if Humphries is able to wrest the starting job away from Nene Hilario, but Gortat should be able to adapt accordingly if that is indeed the case.Gortat will provide modest offensive production on most nights for fantasy owners, but certainly has the potential to augment his value with his above-average rebounding ability and overall defense. He shapes up as a solid mid-to-late round pick, and would be slotted in the top half of centers.

  • Wizards center Marcin Gortat played just 12 minutes in Friday's Game 6 loss that eliminated Washington from the NBA playoffs. Gortat scored just two points on 1-of-4 shooting. The playing time was a career low, and the scoring output matched his career worst. Gortat's light workload was due to a case of food poisoning that had plagued him for two days leading up to the game, per the Washington Post. "This morning I could barely walk pretty much. I didn't feel right," Gortat said. "I came in here and I threw up in the locker room. I felt a little bit better after that. I took a couple shots, different IVs. I feel kind of better now but I ain't going lie, the shots kind of numbed me out totally. I tried to just go out and do something. Coach gave me an opportunity the first few minutes and it didn't work for me. He pulled me out."

  • Wizards forward Marcin Gortat, who had been one of the team's top performers during the playoffs, struggled in Monday's Game 4 against the Hawks. After averaging 15 points in the team's first seven games, Gortat scored just three points on Monday with just eight total rebounds. "We have to get him continually rolling to the basket," Coach Randy Wittman said, per The Washington Post. "It was just one of those nights. You are going to have tough nights like that." Forward Paul Pierce explained the reason behind Gortat's poor game, noting that the Hawks had "effective double teams" and the rest of his teammates not getting the ball to him enough. "He should have more touches than he did tonight," Pierce said. "That is on us so we will look at the tape and figure this out."

  • Center Marcin Gortat delivered 21 points, 11 rebounds and five assists in the Wizards' 125-94 victory on Sunday to close out the Raptors in the first round of the playoffs, 4-0. Gortat shot eight of nine from the floor and also added two steals and a block in the win. "I guess I'm the weakest link out there, so they're going to leave me open a lot," Gortat said. "One day, if I'm going to play a perfect game, I might crack the Wilt Chamberlain record of 100 points."
