Bryant is out for the rest of the season after suffering a torn ACL to his left knee, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports. Bryant had to be helped to the locker room during Saturday's game against the Heat after suffering a left knee injury, which turned out to be a torn ACL. The 23-year-old center was off to a good start to the season, averaging 14.3 points, 6.1 rebounds and 1.5 assists per contest. Robin Lopez and Moritz Wagner will see increased roles with Bryant done for the season.
Bryant will undergo X-rays and an MRI after exiting Saturday's game against the Heat with a left knee injury, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports. The Wizards seem to be fearing a significant injury for Bryant after he exited two minutes into Saturday's contest. The MRI should shed more light on the extent of Bryant's injury, with a timeline for his return likely to be established soon thereafter. If Bryant does miss extended time, look for Robin Lopez and Moritz Wagner to see expanded roles.
Bryant was helped to the locker room after suffering a left knee injury during Saturday's game against the Heat, Zach Rosen of the Wizards' official site reports. The injury didn't appear minor, as Bryant was clearly in a lot of pain and spent time down on the court. He was officially ruled out shortly after exiting the contest.
Bryant recorded 21 points (9-12 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 2-2 FT), 14 rebounds, two assists and one steal in a win at Brooklyn on Sunday. Bryant has scored five field goals during each of Washington's seven games this season. He had not logged 10 rebounds in the first six matchups but currently owns a serviceable 6.7 RPG. Considering his recent scoring and rebounding output, it appears he will be an adequate fantasy option when healthy.
Bryant recorded 18 points (7-7 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 3-4 FT), seven rebounds and two assists across 22 minutes in Friday's win over the Timberwolves. Bryant only needed 22 minutes to leave his mark in this game, as he didn't miss a single shot while reaching his sixth straight double-digit scoring output. Bryant has been one of the most effective shooters in the league when it comes to field goal percentage of late, as he has missed just five shots over his last three contests -- he has hit 81.4 percent of his field-goal attempts (22-27 FG) during that three-game stretch. That kind of efficiency, as his established role as one of Washington's top scoring threats behind Russell Westbrook and Bradley Beal, should make him a valuable player across most formats.
