  • Wizards' Thomas Bryant: Scores 15 in 16 minutes

    Bryant logged 15 points (6-11 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 2-4 FT), five rebounds, one assist and one block across 16 minutes during Monday's 117-98 victory over the 76ers.

    Making his third appearance since returning from a torn ACL, Bryant put up easily his best showing after he totaled just six points, three rebounds, one assist and no blocks or steals through his first two contests (23 total minutes). Bryant was able to take advantage of starting center Daniel Gafford's foul trouble, as both he and Rui Hachimura (16 minutes) ended up seeing more action than Gafford, who picked up four personals in just eight minutes. It's still unclear exactly how the minutes will break down when all three of those big men -- plus Montrezl Harrell -- are fully healthy, but Bryant could eventually make a run at unseating Gafford for the starting spot.

  • Wizards' Thomas Bryant: Makes season debut off bench

    Bryant amassed six points (2-2 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 1-2 FT), one rebound and one assist across 11 minutes during Wednesday's 112-106 victory over the Magic.

    Bryant saw his first game action in more than a calendar year and played a minor role off the bench for Washington in his debut. The 24-year-old should continue building up to full strength over the next couple weeks and could push Daniel Gafford for the starting role at center.

  • Wizards' Thomas Bryant: Poised to make season debut

    Bryant (knee) isn't listed on the Wizards' injury report ahead of Wednesday's game against the Magic.

    For the first time in more than a calendar year that Bryant, who tore his ACL last January, doesn't appear on the report. As has been expected for a few days, the big man will make his long-awaited return to action Wednesday after sitting out Tuesday's win over Oklahoma City in the front end of a back-to-back set. Chances are, Bryant will see limited action off the bench, but once he's back up to speed, he could eventually challenge Daniel Gafford for the starting center spot.

  • Wizards' Thomas Bryant: On track to debut Wednesday

    Bryant (knee) is on course to make his 2021-22 debut Wednesday night against the Thunder, Josh Robbins of The Athletic reports.

    Over the weekend, coach Wes Unseld Jr. implied that Bryant would likely be back within the next week. It looks like his debut will come on the second half of the Wizards' upcoming back-to-back set, which begins with a matchup against Oklahoma City on Tuesday night. Chances are, Bryant's workload will be limited as he sees his first action since January of 2021. Still, he could eventually end up sharing time fairly evenly with Daniel Gafford, who's filled the starting center spot vacated by Bryant. Before the injury last season, Bryant averaged 15.9 points, 6.8 rebounds, 1.7 assists, 0.9 blocks and 1.0 threes in 30.0 minutes per game (nine appearances, all starts).

  • Wizards' Thomas Bryant: Eyeing return next week

    Wizards head coach Wes Unseld Jr. said he's hopeful Bryant (knee) will be ready to make his season debut at some point during the upcoming week, Ava Wallace of The Washington Post reports.

    Bryant remains out for Sunday's contest in Orlando, but the 24-year-old center looks like he could be ready to play at some point during the Wizards' eight-game homestand that begins with a Tuesday/Wednesday back-to-back set with the Thunder and Magic. Bryant will most likely be withheld from the back-to-back set as Washington looks to evaluate him in practice, but a Jan. 15 debut against the Trail Blazers seems more realistic. Bryant, who underwent surgery in early February of last year to repair a torn ACL in his left knee, will presumably face a minutes restriction in his return to the lineup, and he may not recapture the starting role he enjoyed prior to suffering the injury in 2020-21. It's possible Unseld opts for a three-center rotation of Daniel Gafford, Montrezl Harrell and Bryant, which would lower the fantasy value of all three players.

  • Wizards' Thomas Bryant: Could debut in 1-2 weeks

    Bryant (knee), according to coach Wes Unseld Jr., is probably one or two weeks away from being available, Josh Robbins of The Athletic reports.

    The Wizards have been relatively quiet regarding Bryant's recovery from left knee surgery, but this is a great positive update. He'll presumably be limited once he returns, and he'll be battling Daniel Gafford and Montrezl Harrell for center minutes.

  • Wizards' Thomas Bryant: Clears protocols, still out

    Bryant (knee) cleared the NBA's health and safety protocols Monday, but he remains out due to his recovery from a torn ACL.

    Before being placed in the league's COVID-19 health and safety protocols, Bryant returned to practice for the first time since tearing his left ACL last January. It's unclear how his time in protocols impacted his rehab, but when the 6-foot-10 center is able to return, he's expected to compete with Daniel Gafford, Montrezl Harrell, Davis Bertans and Rui Hachimura (personal) for frontcourt minutes.

  • Wizards' Thomas Bryant: Enters COVID protocols

    Bryant (knee) was placed in the league's COVID-19 health and safety protocols Monday, Josh Robbins of The Athletic reports.

    Bryant is already sidelined as he works back from a torn ACL, so while this isn't the most encouraging development, it shouldn't necessarily affect his return timetable. The big man came back to practice prior to Christmas and is in the latter stages of his recovery, so the hope is that he can make his 2021-22 debut sometime in early-to-mid January. At that point, he'll compete with Daniel Gafford, Rui Hachimura (personal), Montrezl Harrell and Davis Bertans, among a few others, for frontcourt minutes.

  • Wizards' Thomas Bryant: Nearing return to practice

    Bryant (knee) is expected to begin practicing with the Wizards within the next two weeks, Josh Robbins of The Athletic reports.

    Bryant is nearing the final stages of his recovery from a torn left ACL, which he suffered in early January of last season. By all accounts, his rehab is progressing as expected, and the hope is that he can be on the practice floor in full capacity before the end of the month. Given the long layoff, Bryant could require several weeks to ramp up before making his 2021-22 debut, which looks like it will likely come sometime in late December or early January. Prior to the injury, Bryant was installed as the Wizards' every-night starting center, but the team has since acquired both Daniel Gafford and Montrezl Harrell, so it remains to be seen whether Bryant will return to that role or be utilized off the bench.

  • Wizards' Thomas Bryant: Aiming for December return

    Bryant (knee) is aiming to return to game action "sometime in December," per GM Tommy Sheppard, Chase Hughes of NBC Sports Washington reports.

    The Wizards handed down a similar timetable back in August, so it looks as though Bryant remains on track as he works back from surgery to repair a torn left ACL. The Wizards play 21 games in October and November, so Bryant will probably miss somewhere around 25 games before making his debut. He'll likely require a ramp-up period before returning to a full workload, but once he's back, he figures to provide fantasy managers with value in points, rebounds, blocks, threes and field goal percentage. However, Bryant will have to contend with new arrival Montrezl Harrell, as well as Daniel Gafford and Rui Hachimura, for minutes up front.
