  • Wizards' Rui Hachimura: Double-double Sunday

    Hachimura produced 11 points (4-10 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT), 10 rebounds, two assists and two steals in 26 minutes in a 104-95 loss Sunday against Golden State in a preseason contest in Japan.

    After nearly posting a double-double in the preseason opener, Hachimura made it happen Sunday. He's averaging 12 points and 9.5 rebounds in 25.5 minutes in two preseason games while going 9-for-19 from the field. The 24-year-old missed the first 39 games of last season and came off the bench in 29 contests before starting the final 13 games of the season. He averaged 14.2 points and 5.1 rebounds as a starter but will have to compete against Kyle Kuzma, Deni Avdija and Will Barton for minutes on the wing this year.

  • Wizards' Rui Hachimura: Posts near double-double

    Hachimura tallied 13 points (5-9 FG, 0-4 3Pt, 3-7 FT), nine rebounds and one steal in 25 minutes during Friday's preseason matchup with the Warriors in Japan.

    Hachimura only played 42 games last season for the Wizards, so this is a crucial season to prove he is part of the team's long-term plans. The 6-foot-8 forward led the team in scoring and rebounding. However, he will have to improve on his outside shooting if he wants to overtake Kyle Kuzma in the starting lineup.

  • Wizards' Rui Hachimura: Leads team in loss

    Hachimura recorded 21 points (9-19 FG, 1-4 3PT, 2-2 FT), four rebounds, two assists and one steal in a 124-108 loss to Charlotte on Sunday.

    Hachimura reached 21 points for the second straight game, including the fifth time in his last eight. The third-year forward has grabbed more than seven rebounds just twice this season but is shooting a career-best 49.2 percent from the field and 45.4 percent from deep.

  • Wizards' Rui Hachimura: Drops another 21 points

    Hachimura put up 21 points (8-14 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 2-4 FT), three rebounds, one assist and one block in the 114-92 loss to New York on Friday.

    Hachimura has scored exactly 21 points in four of his last seven games. While the rebounding numbers could be better, the third-year forward is in the midst of a solid scoring run.

  • Wizards' Rui Hachimura: Another 21-point outing

    Hachimura chipped in 21 points (8-15 FG, 3-4 3Pt, 2-6 FT), five rebounds and four assists in 37 minutes during Tuesday's 132-114 win over the Timberwolves.

    Twenty-one must be Hachimura's magic number, as the forward has now scored exactly 21 points in three of his past five performances. Since posting just three points against the Pacers on March 6, Hachimura has scored in double figures in all but two matchups, and he is averaging 12.8 points during that span.

  • Wizards' Rui Hachimura: Scores 21 again

    Hachimura amassed 21 points (8-14 FG, 3-4 3Pt, 2-3 FT), five rebounds, four assists, one block and one steal in 29 minutes during Friday's 135-103 victory over the Mavericks.

    Hachimura has now scored exactly a season-high 21 points in three of his past four games. After a slow and late start to the season, he's found himself in a starting role since March 19. During this stretch, he's averaged 14.0 points on 52/39/64 shooting, 5.1 rebounds and 1.6 assists. On the season as a whole, he's shooting an impressive 47.1 percent from deep.

  • Wizards' Rui Hachimura: Tops Wizards with 21 points

    Hachimura provided 21 points (8-10 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 3-4 FT) and four rebounds across 31 minutes during Tuesday's 107-94 loss to the Bulls.

    Hachimura put up a season-high 21 points in the loss, scoring at least 20 points for just the second time this season. While the offensive production was nice, he once again failed to deliver meaningful contributions outside of the points column. Despite a consistent role, Hachimura should be viewed as nothing more than a streaming option for those in need of a points boost.

  • Wizards' Rui Hachimura: Fills in with 16 points

    Hachimura contributed 16 points (7-13 FG, 2-5 3Pt), eight rebounds and two assists over 30 minutes during Monday's 115-97 loss to the Rockets.

    Hachimura started once again in place of Kyle Kuzma and came very close to a double-double. His eight rebounds matched a season high for Hachimura, who continues to regain his footing after missing the first three months of the season. Hachimura is unlikely to make a return to the starting lineup without some help from the injury report, but his return has provided Washington with much-needed frontcourt depth.

  • Wizards' Rui Hachimura: Starting for Kuzma

    Hachimura will start Saturday's game against the Lakers, Ava Wallace of The Washington Post reports.

    With Kyle Kuzma (knee) scratched from the lineup due to right knee tendinitis, Hachimura will make his first start of the season. The 23-year-old has averaged 10.0 points and 3.2 rebounds across 19.7 minutes per game in his third year.

  • Wizards' Rui Hachimura: Extends scoring streak

    Hachimura supplied 12 points (6-15 FG, 0-5 3Pt), seven rebounds, three assists and two steals over 27 minutes during Wednesday's 127-109 loss to the Nuggets.

    Hachimura has hit double-digit scoring in five straight games, despite Washington losing all five contests. Wednesday, Hachimura led Washington in shots and matched his season-high 27 minutes. His player efficiency rating of 15.77 places him slightly above league average across 28 appearances this campaign.

  • Wizards' Rui Hachimura: Scores 18 in loss

    Hachimura finished with 18 points (7-10 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 3-4 FT), three rebounds, one assist and one steal across 24 minutes during Wednesday's 115-109 loss to the Clippers.

    Hachimura finished as the team's second-leading scorer in the contest behind Kristaps Porzingis (19 points). Hachimura accomplished that feat on just 10 shot attempts, making all six from two-point range and going 1-for-4 from beyond the arc. The third-year forward is averaging 12.7 points, 2.3 boards, 0.9 steals and 1.9 three-pointers over his past seven games.

  • Wizards' Rui Hachimura: Prolific scorer off bench

    Hachimura closed Friday's 117-114 loss to the Hawks with 19 points (7-10 FG, 3-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT), six rebounds, one assist and one steal over 26 minutes.

    Hachimura continued to play a bench role Friday, but he scored in double figures for the fourth time in the last five games during the narrow loss. Across his last nine appearances, he's scored in double figures in each of his outings in which he's played at least 20 minutes. During that time, he's averaged 12.2 points and 2.2 rebounds in 21.8 minutes per game.

  • Wizards' Rui Hachimura: Goes for 10 points off bench

    Hachimura provided 10 points (4-8 FG, 2-2 3Pt), one rebound, one assist and one steal across 22 minutes during Saturday's 92-86 loss to the Cavaliers.

    His final stat line didn't impress too much, but Hachimura looked productive off the bench in a game where the Wizards struggled badly on offense all night long. He continues to play off the bench and that role might not change any time soon, but he's adjusting well. The second-year forward is averaging 10.3 points per game across 10 appearances this month.

  • Wizards' Rui Hachimura: Fuels Washington victory

    Hachimura provided 20 points (8-15 FG, 2-2 3Pt, 2-2 FT), one rebound, one assist and one steal across 27 minutes during Thursday's 117-103 victory over the Nets.

    Hachimura scored 11 of his 20 points in the fourth quarter -- a frame that opened as a tie and concluded with the Wizards winning by 14. Hachimura will carry this season high in scoring and made field goals into the All-Star break. The Wizards play three games in five days beginning a week from Friday.

  • Wizards' Rui Hachimura: Available Thursday

    Hachimura (ankle) will play Thursday against the Nets, Chase Hughes of NBC Sports Washington reports.

    Hachimura was considered questionable after sitting out Wednesday's loss to the Pacers with a sprained right ankle, but he's good to go for the second half of the back-to-back set. The 24-year-old has averaged 9.2 points, 3.2 rebounds, 1.0 assists and 1.2 steals in 21.0 minutes over his past five games.

  • Wizards' Rui Hachimura: Questionable Thursday

    Hachimura (ankle) is questionable for Thursday's game against the Nets.

    Hachimura sat out Wednesday's loss to the Pacers but could return for the Wizards' final matchup before the All-Star break. If he sits out again, more minutes could be in store for Deni Avdija, Corey Kispert and Anthony Gill.
