Napier amassed 21 points (6-12 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 6-6 FT), six assists, three steals and two rebounds in 38 minutes during Tuesday's 122-115 win over the Knicks. Napier drew another start and saw more minutes than every Wizard expect Bradley Beal. Ish Smith (hamstring) has missed four straight games, and Napier has been superb in the last two, combining for 48 points (on 26 field-goal attempts), 13 dimes, seven steals, seven threes and six boards across 78 minutes.
Napier had 27 points (6-14 FG, 4-8 3Pt, 11-14 FT), seven assists, four rebounds and four steals in 40 minutes during Sunday's 100-89 loss to the Heat. Napier was tremendous for the Wizards, matching his career high in scoring. Ish Smith (groin) and Jerome Robinson (Achilles) were both out and could miss at least another couple of games. As long as that's the case, Napier might be worth a look in 12-team leagues.
Napier posted nine points (3-5 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 2-2 FT), five assists, three rebounds and three steals in 25 minutes during Sunday's 124-110 win at Golden State. Napier has started three consecutive games, averaging 9.3 points with 3.3 assists over that span. He's hit just 32.1 percent of his field-goal attempts during that stretch, and even though he's likely to remain as a starter moving forward, his production has not been high enough to make him a reliable fantasy asset outside of the deepest formats.
Napier will start Wednesday against the Nets, Fred Katz of The Athletic reports. Napier, who is coming off his best game since joining the Wizards, will replace Ish Smith in the starting five. The guard has started 22 games this season, all with the Timberwolves, averaging 11.4 points, 6.4 assists, 3.8 rebounds and 1.2 steals across 27.7 minutes in those contests.
Napier had 27 points (10-17 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 4-5 FT), seven assists, four rebounds and two steals in 36 minutes off the bench during Monday's 137-134 overtime loss against the Bucks. Napier is yet to start a single game since being traded to Washington, but this performance off the bench could result in more meaningful minutes moving forward. He is averaging 11.0 points, 4.3 assists and 41.4 percent from three-point range since joining the Wizards earlier this month.
