Wagner (back) will be available for Wednesday's game against Dallas "unless something crazy happens overnight," Fred Katz of The Athletic reports. Wagner was unable to take the court for practice Sunday after suffering a back injury during a preseason matchup, but it doesn't appear as though he'll miss any regular-season action. He's expected to see time at both center and power forward this season off the bench.
Wagner (back) didn't practice Sunday, Fred Katz of The Athletic reports. Although his X-rays came back negative, it appears as though Wagner is still banged up. The former Michigan standout will likely be a game-time call for Wednesday's season opener.
Wagner's (back) X-rays came back negative after hitting the floor hard during Friday's preseason game against Philadelphia, Fred Katz of The Athletic reports. It's good news that Wagner's tests came back negative, though he's feeling very sore. He'll be considered day-to-day leading up to Wednesday's opener against Dallas.
Wagner went back to the locker room after falling hard on his back during Friday's preseason game against the 76ers, Tim Bontemps of ESPN.com reports. The severity of Wagner's injury is unknown at this time, but he'll be considered questionable to return.
Wagner totaled 18 points (4-7 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 8-8 FT), four rebounds, one assist and two steals across 24 minutes during the Wizards' 115-99 preseason win over the Knicks on Friday. The 22-year-old continued his impressive exhibition slate with his third double-digit scoring effort in as many games. Wagner started alongside Thomas Bryant in the frontcourt Friday, with rookie Rui Hachimura (rest) sitting out the contest. Wagner is likely to slot in as Bryant's backup at center to begin the season, but he could certainly make a case for a solid amount of minutes if he can keep up this caliber of production once the games start to count in the standings.
