Dekker (DNP-Coach's Decision) did not see the court in Thursday's 113-108 loss to the Nuggets. Dekker has appeared in just two of of the last five game while combining for only one point (0-4 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 1-2 FT), two dimes, and one board across 18 minutes of action. The 24-year-old forward had earned double-digit minutes in five straight games prior to this recent stretch. However, unless he suddenly starts earning ample minutes again he's unlikely to provide much value during the last nine games of 2018-19.
Dekker (back) is available Friday against the Hornets. Dekker hasn't played in either of the past two games, but he could make his return Friday. Across his past four appearances, he's averaging 5.8 points, 2.8 rebounds and 1.3 assists in 14.8 minutes.
Dekker (back) will not be available Wednesday against Orlando, NBC Sports Washington reports. Dekker has battled a sore lower back at times this season, and he'll sit out Wednesday for the second consecutive game. Dekker's absence could mean a few extra minutes for Troy Brown or Jabari Parker.
Dekker (back) will be available for Tuesday's game against the Cavs. As expected, Dekker will be good to go after missing Sunday's game against the Spurs with a minor back issue. The Wisconsin product rarely reaches the 20-minute plateau, but he's averaging 17.2 minutes per game off the bench since the start of January.
Dekker (back) is on track to play Tuesday against Cleveland, Spencer Davies of Bball Insiders reports. Although Dekker hasn't officially been cleared to play just yet, coach Scott Brooks believes both Ian Mahinmi and Dekker "should be good" for Tuesday's matchup. Expect a final decision on his status closer to tip.
