Top Bilal Coulibaly News

  • Wizards' Bilal Coulibaly: Won't play Tuesday

    Coulibaly (pelvis) will not play Tuesday against the Warriors, Chase Hughes reports.

    Coulibaly took a nasty fall Sunday night and is day-to-day with a pelvic contusion. Meanwhile, Deni Avdija (heel), Corey Kispert (illness) and Landry Shamet (neck) are all questionable. The Wizards could potentially be shorthanded, so they may have to use a committee approach to soak up the available minutes.

  • Wizards' Bilal Coulibaly: Won't return Sunday

    Coulibaly is out for the remainder of Sunday's game against the Cavaliers due to a right pelvis contusion.

    Coulibaly take a hard fall early in the first quarter and stayed in the game momentarilly before eventually making his way to the bench. The rookie was ruled out shortly thereafter, finishing the game with three points, one rebound and one assist in five minutes. His status for Wednesday's matchup with the Warriors is now in question.

  • Wizards' Bilal Coulibaly: Decent output in blowout loss

    Coulibaly had 11 points (4-10 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 1-3 FT), five rebounds, two assists and two steals across 31 minutes during Friday's 147-106 loss to Oklahoma City.

    Coulibaly has started in each of Washington's last three games, and there's a strong chance he'll stay in that role for the foreseeable future given Washington's rebuilding process and the fact they've gone 9-47 this season. Coulibaly has shown flashes of his talent and the ability to stuff the stat sheet when given extended minutes, something that was noticeable in this loss as well. He's averaging 10.0 points, 3.9 rebounds, 1.6 assists and 1.1 steals per game when deployed in a starting role.

  • Wizards' Bilal Coulibaly: Starting Thursday

    Coulibaly will replace Jordan Poole in the starting lineup for Thursday's game against the Nuggets.

    Poole is getting benched, and with the Wizards sitting on a record of 9-45, it's possible this could be a change that sticks to give Coulibaly some developmental minutes over the second half of the season. Coulibaly offers decent upside as a producer of defensive stats, so he's worth a speculative add in most leagues. Joining him in the first unit for Thursday's game will be Deni Avdija, Tyus Jones, Kyle Kuzma and Marvin Bagley.

  • Wizards' Bilal Coulibaly: Nabs another start

    Coulibaly will start Wednesday's game against the Pelicans.

    Coulibaly steps into the place of Kyle Kuzma, who's sidelined due to illness. In four starts this season, Coulibaly is averaging 12.3 points, 4.5 rebounds and 2.0 combined steals/blocks.

  • Wizards' Bilal Coulibaly: Back to second unit

    Coulibaly will move back to the bench for Saturday's game against the 76ers.

    Marvin Bagley (back) is returning from his injury and will jump back into the starting five. Despite the move to the bench, Coulibaly figures to play a key role the rest of the season. He had a terrific showing Friday against the Celtics, scoring 21 points (6-18 FG, 4-12 3Pt, 5-5 FT) with eight rebounds, three assists and two steals over 33 minutes.

  • Wizards' Bilal Coulibaly: Scores season-high 21 points

    Coulibaly totaled 21 points (6-18 FG, 4-12 3Pt, 5-5 FT), eight rebounds, three assists and two steals over 33 minutes during Friday's 133-129 loss to the Celtics.

    Coulibaly jumped to the starting unit following the departure of Daniel Gafford via trade to the Mavericks and the unavailability of both Marvin Bagley (back) and Richaun Holmes (trade). The rookie made the most of the opportunity, and he responded by posting a season-high scoring mark. In four starts, Coulibaly is averaging 12.3 points, 4.5 rebounds, 1.5 assists and 1.0 blocks per game, and it wouldn't be surprising if he stays in that role when the Wizards take on the 76ers on Saturday.

  • Wizards' Bilal Coulibaly: Joins starting lineup

    Coulibaly will enter the starting lineup for Friday's game against Boston, Josh Robbins of The Athletic reports.

    The Wizards traded Daniel Gafford away at the deadline, and Richaun Holmes (trade pending) and Marvin Bagley (back) are both unavailable. As a result, the Wizards will roll with a smaller lineup with Kyle Kuzma shifting to center. In three starts this season, Coulibaly has averaged 9.3 points, 3.3 rebounds, 1.0 assists and 1.3 blocks.

  • Wizards' Bilal Coulibaly: Returns to bench

    Coulibaly isn't in the starting five for Wednesday's game versus the Cavaliers.

    Kyle Kuzma will reclaim his starting spot from Coulibaly after missing the previous game with a shoulder injury. The rookie forward is averaging 6.4 points, 2.6 rebounds, 1.8 assists and 1.4 steals in 27.2 minutes across his last five appearances coming off the bench.

  • Wizards' Bilal Coulibaly: Will start sans Kuzma

    Coulibaly will start Sunday's game against the Suns.

    With Kyle Kuzma (shoulder) sidelined, Coulibaly will make his third career start. During a Jan. 31 start against the Clippers, the rookie posted 19 points, four rebounds, two assists, one steal and two blocks in 37 minutes. However, Coulibaly did shake off a questionable tag due to a lower back contusion, so he may not see that heavy of a workload versus Phoenix.

  • Wizards' Bilal Coulibaly: Cleared to play Sunday

    Coulibaly (back) is available for Sunday's game against the Suns.

    Coulibaly will suit up despite dealing with a back contusion. He's played at least 25 minutes in five straight games, averaging 9.4 points, 3.4 rebounds, 2.0 assists, 1.6 steals and 1.0 blocks in 30.6 minutes during that stretch. He may be asked to do more offensively versus Phoenix with Kyle Kuzma (shoulder) sidelined.

  • Wizards' Bilal Coulibaly: Iffy for Sunday

    Coulibaly is questionable against the Suns on Sunday due to a lower back contusion.

    This is a new injury for the rookie, and he's considered day-to-day. The timing isn't ideal for Washington, as they have a lengthy injury report at the moment. If Coulibaly is unable to play, Corey Kispert could see a significant workload for Washington.

  • Wizards' Bilal Coulibaly: Returns to bench role

    Coulibaly won't start Friday's game against the Heat.

    With Jordan Poole (illness) sidelined, Coulibaly started Wednesday's loss to the Clippers and posted 19 points (8-16 FG), four rebounds, two assists, two blocks and one steal in 37 minutes. However, Poole will be back in action Friday, sending the rookie to a reserve role.

  • Wizards' Bilal Coulibaly: Stuffs stat sheet Wednesday

    Coulibaly chipped in 19 points (8-16 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 2-3 FT), four rebounds, two assists, two blocks and one steal over 37 minutes during Wednesday's 125-109 loss to the Clippers.

    Coulibaly got the start Wednesday after Jordan Poole (illness) was a late scratch, and he was highly productive, filling out the stat sheet and notching the second-best scoring mark of his young NBA career. Coulibaly will likely return to the bench if Poole is listed as available when the Wizards take on the Heat on Friday. Still, even under that scenario, he could be a decent alternative in most formats since he keeps finding ways to produce even when deployed with the second unit.

  • Wizards' Bilal Coulibaly: Late addition to starting lineup

    Coulibaly will start Wednesday's game against the Clippers, Ava Wallace of The Washington Post reports.

    Coulibaly will step into the first unit Wednesday with Jordan Poole (illness) sidelined. While the start is just his second of the season, Coulibaly has commanded a significant role as of late, averaging 7.2 points, 2.4 rebounds, 1.2 blocks and 1.4 steals over 28.4 minutes across his past five games.
