Hachimura scored 22 points (9-16 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 3-4 FT) and corralled five rebounds Friday in a 110-107 victory over Golden State. Hachimura started strong in the contest, posting 13 points in the first quarter -- more than he had totaled in either of his previous two full games. The sophomore forward quieted down thereafter but still led Washington in scoring for the contest. Hachimura has increased his fantasy appeal with per-game averages of 18.4 points and 7.3 rebounds over his past 12 games, though he recently missed a pair of contests with a shoulder injury.
Hachimura (shoulder) tallied nine points (3-9 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 3-4 FT), seven rebounds, three steals and two assists across 30 minutes Wednesday in the Wizards' 131-116 win over the Magic. Back in action after a two-game absence due to right shoulder soreness, Hachimura recaptured his starting role at power forward and received a normal minutes load. While he came away with his fewest points since March 12, Hachimura made up for it to some extent with the three steals -- a rare contribution for a player who had three steals combined over his last eight outings.
Hachimura (shoulder) has been cleared to play in Wednesday's game against the Magic, Ava Wallace of the Washington Post reports. Following a two-game absence due to a shoulder issue, Hachimura will return to action as the Wizards continue their six-game road trip. He'll re-enter the starting lineup, as Davis Bertans shifts to the bench. Prior to the injury, Hachimura had averaged 34.9 minutes per game since the All-Star break. In that span he posted 17.8 points, 6.6 rebounds and 1.3 assists.
Hachimura (shoulder) is questionable for Wednesday's contest against the Magic. Hachimura has been sidelined for two straight games due to right shoulder soreness. Davis Bertans has started in his place. If Hachimura is able to play Wednesday, he'll likely rejoin the starting five, where he's been great lately. Over his past 11 appearances, Hachimura has averaged 19.3 points, 7.3 rebounds and 1.5 assists in 37.1 minutes.
The Wizards ruled Hachimura (shoulder) out for Monday's game against the Raptors. After being scratched ahead of Saturday's 109-87 loss to the Mavericks, Hachimura will end up missing a second straight game due to right shoulder tightness. With the Wizards now three games behind the Bulls for the Eastern Conference's 10th seed (and final spot in the play-in tournament), the team could be inclined to take a cautious approach with Hachimura while he looks to move past the injury. Hachimura's availability for the Wizards' remaining three games of the week after Monday remains murky, so fantasy managers in shallower leagues may be better off using other options this week for their lineups.
