Gortat accounted for 10 points (5-9 FG), seven rebounds, one assist and one block during the Wizards' 119-115 loss at Cleveland on Thursday. Gortat's nine field goal attempts Thursday were his highest total since discharging nine on March. 27 against the Spurs and as a result, was able to finish in double figures. The Polish product is contributing 8.5 points, 7.6 rebounds and 1.8 assists in his 11th NBA season.
Gortat scored 18 points (6-8 FG, 6-6 FT) to go with eight rebounds, four assists, one steal and one block in 25 minutes during Saturday's 109-102 win against Indiana. After going five games since the last time he scored in double-figures, Gortat exploded for his highest scoring night since his season-high 21 points on January 3. In addition, the center racked up eight boards to complete what was an all-around impressive statistical night. However, offensive consistency has not been Gortat's strong suit this season. Since scoring in double figures in each of the first five games of the season, he has only hit double-digits in as many as four straight games once since then. Other than that, there have been long stretches of offensive futility leading to his 8.4 points per game average this season.
Gortat had just three points (1-6 FG, 1-2 FT), three rebounds and one assist in 17 minutes during Saturday's 129-102 loss to the Heat. Gortat continues to be very bad, all the time. His production has been basically non-existent this season and his ownership in standard leagues is simply baffling. If you are looking for a big man as you head into your playoffs, there are likely better options out there, even in deeper leagues.
Gortat had just eight points (3-7 FG, 2-3 FT), eight rebounds, two blocks and one assist in 24 minutes during Friday's 102-95 loss to Toronto. Gortat continues to be owned in a lot of leagues despite his poor performances. He has now scored in double-figures in just one of his past eight games while recording only five blocks in that same period. His numbers are down from last season and he offers basically no upside. He is certainly a drop candidate in all but the deeper formats.
Gortat scored 10 points (4-7 FG, 2-4 FT) to go with 10 rebounds, four assists, one steal and one block in 31 minutes during Thursday's 110-104 overtime loss to Boston. Gortat has been solid in his last six games, averaging 9.3 points and 7.6 rebounds. During this span, the center has collected two double-doubles while scoring at least 10 points in five of his last six games. Gortat will not light up the scoreboard (8.9 points), but he can clean up on the boards to the tune of 8.9 rebounds per game for the season. While he has not scored more than 11 points during this recent run, he has been solid enough as a rebounder to be close to a double-double very often as of late.
