  • 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.

  • Wizards' Thomas Bryant: Progresses to explosive workouts

    Bryant (knee) has progressed to athletic and explosive workouts, freelance NBA reporter Quinton Mayo reports.

    Bryant is still slated to miss the start of the 2021-22 season, but he's clearly not too far away from getting back into close-to-full-speed basketball. The video of Bryant's progress shows him making quick lateral bounds and jumping after catching a medicine ball. Montrezl Harrell and Daniel Gafford should see most, if not all, of the center minutes to start the season. However, once Bryant is cleared to play, the rotation will get more complicated.

  • Wizards' Thomas Bryant: To miss start of season

    Bryant (knee) will be out for the start of the 2021-22 campaign, Fred Katz and Shams Charania of The Athletic report.

    Bryant tore his ACL in mid-January and underwent surgery in early February. He'll need some more time to recover before taking the court, and he won't be available to start the season in mid-October. As a result, Daniel Gafford and Montrezl Harrell should see plenty of action to begin the year. Once Bryant returns, he could slot in as the starter. He showed nice flashes last season and averaged 14.3 points, 6.1 rebounds and 1.5 assists per game while shooting 64.8 percent from the field and 42.9 percent from three.

  • Wizards' Thomas Bryant: Getting surgery Tuesday

    Bryant is scheduled to undergo surgery Tuesday in New York to repair the torn ACL in his left knee, freelance NBA reporter Quinton Mayo reports.

    Bryant tore his knee during the Wizards' Jan. 9 loss to the Heat, but he waited more than three weeks to have the procedure, presumably while waiting for inflammation to subside. Assuming the 23-year-old's surgery goes off without a hitch, he should have a shot at making it back in action for the start of the 2021-22 season. As for the rest of the current campaign, the Wizards are expected to rely on Robin Lopez and Moritz Wagner as their primary centers.

  • Wizards' Thomas Bryant: X-rays, MRI on tap

    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.
