Rockets' Garrison Mathews: Still not with team
Mathews (not with team) is out Friday against the Thunder.
Mathews was recently claimed off waivers and has yet to join the Rockets. When he does, he'll likely have a relatively small role.... See More ... See Less
Rockets' Garrison Mathews: Not available for opener
Mathews (not with team) won't be available Wednesday in Minnesota in the Rockets' season opener, Alykhan Bijani of The Athletic reports.
Houston just claimed Mathews off waivers from Boston on Monday, so the third-year wing will presumably need at least a few days to clear COVID-19 intake testing and get settled in his new organization. Mathews should be ready to go for the Rockets' second game of the season Friday against the Thunder, but don't count on him having a role in head coach Stephen Silas' rotation right away....

Rockets' Garrison Mathews: Joins Houston
Mathews was claimed off of waivers by the Rockets on Monday, Kelly Iko of The Athletic reports.
Mathews appeared in two preseason games for the Celtics and totaled 12 points and four rebounds in 25 minutes. The 6-foot-5 guard is a skilled shooter and could provide floor spacing for the Rockets talented backcourt duo of Kevin Porter and Jalen Green, but he will likely spend the majority of the 2021-22 campaign at the G League level....

Celtics' Garrison Mathews: Waived by Celtics
Mathews was waived by the Celtics on Saturday, Adam Himmelsbach of The Boston Globe reports.
The three-point marksman appeared in two preseason games for the Celtics and totaled 12 points and four rebounds in 25 minutes. It seems possible he could land somewhere else with a team looking for some shooting off the bench.... See More ... See Less
Celtics' Garrison Mathews: Heading to Boston
Mathews signed a one-year, non-guaranteed contract with the Celtics on Friday, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.
Mathews spent the past two seasons with Washington and averaged 5.5 points and 1.4 rebounds over 16,2 minutes in 64 games during the 2020-21 campaign. The 24-year-old should fill a reserve role for the Celtics if he manages to make the roster out of camp.... See More ... See Less
Wizards' Garrison Mathews: Will play Sunday
Mathews (wrist) will play Sunday against the Hornets, Chris Miller of NBC Sports Washington reports.
Mathews will be available for the finale as expected despite a sprained wrist. He went for nine points and two boards across 17 minutes in Friday's win over Cleveland.... See More ... See Less
Wizards' Garrison Mathews: Probable Sunday
Mathews is probable for Sunday's contest against the Hornets due to a sprained right wrist.
Mathews will likely play through the injury during the finale. Since the start of April, he's averaged 3.7 points in 13.1 minutes per game.... See More ... See Less
Wizards' Garrison Mathews: Pulled from starting five
Mathews will come off the bench Friday against the Cavaliers, Chase Hughes of NBC Sports Washington reports.
Coach Scott Brooks initially said that Mathews would start, but Chandler Hutchison will get the nod instead. In 37 games off the bench this season, Mathews has averaged 5.4 points and 1.2 rebounds in 14.8 minutes.... See More ... See Less
Wizards' Garrison Mathews: To start Monday
Mathews will start Monday's game against the Hawks.
Filling in for the injured Bradley Beal (hamstring), Mathews will make his first start since early April. The 24-year-old will likely have an increased workload Monday, but he's still not an overly exciting fantasy option. In the last five starts, he's only scored in double figures one time....

Wizards' Garrison Mathews: Absent Monday
Mathews (coach's decision) didn't play during Monday's win over the Pacers.
This was Mathews' second straight absence after playing in 55 straight games. The second-year guard out of Lipscomb is currently averaging 5.7 points and 1.4 rebounds in 57 appearances.... See More ... See Less
Wizards' Garrison Mathews: Gets hot from deep
Mathews scored 17 points (5-7 FG, 4-6 3Pt, 3-3 FT) across 29 minutes in Monday's loss to the Raptors.
Mathews continued to see an increased opportunity in the absence of Bradley Beal (hip). He got hot in the second quarter, knocking down three triples and tallying 12 points. While it was a strong shooting night for Mathews, he has reached double-digit points only twice in his last 18 games and will see his role decrease once Beal is able to return.... See More ...

Wizards' Garrison Mathews: Returns to bench role
Mathews will come off the bench Monday against the Raptors, Fred Katz of The Athletic reports.
The 24-year-old started Saturday in place of Bradley Beal (hip) and was blanked in 19 minutes, so Raul Neto will receive the nod Monday with Beal still sidelined. Mathews should still be involved off the bench, but he shouldn't draw much fantasy interest given his averages of 3.0 points, 0.8 rebounds and 0.4 assists over the past five games.... See More ...

Wizards' Garrison Mathews: Starting for Beal
Mathews will start Saturday's game against the Mavericks, Fred Katz of The Athletic reports.
Jerome Robinson had been starting in Bradley Beal's (hip) absence, but Mathews will get the nod this time. Over 21 prior starts this season, he's averaged 6.7 points and 1.8 rebounds in 19.7 minutes.... See More ... See Less
Wizards' Garrison Mathews: Coming off bench
Mathews will come off the bench Saturday against the Pistons, Chase Hughes of NBC Sports Washington reports.
Mathews is being replaced in the starting five by rookie Deni Avdija. In 15 games off the bench this season, Mathews has averaged 7.7 points and 1.7 rebounds in 16.5 minutes.... See More ... See Less
Wizards' Garrison Mathews: Shoots efficiently in loss
Mathews logged 16 points (5-6 FG, 3-4 3PT, 3-3 FT), three assists, two steals and one rebound in a 106-102 loss to the Knicks on Thursday.
Mathews tied a season-high 35 minutes to go along with an efficient shooting performance from behind the three-point arc. The guard managed to put up a well-rounded statline given his standards, as he more than doubled his season average in points and recorded a season-high three assists. Although the rookie receives inconsistent minutes each game, he's earned a starting role with the team and has been given more playing time as the season has gone on.... See More ... See Less
Wizards' Garrison Mathews: Posting steady three-point numbers
Mathews is averaging 7.8 points, 2.3 rebounds and 1.9 three-pointers in 18.3 minutes per game while shooting 45.5 percent from the field and 47.2 percent from downtown in his nine contests since entering the starting five.
Mathews delivered his best outing of the nine starts in Saturday's 128-112 win over the Timberwolves, grabbing a career-high nine rebounds while pouring in 18 points on a trio of three-pointers and a 7-for-7 showing from the free-throw line. With at least two triples in four straight games, Mathews has emerged as a useful streamer in that category, but that's about the extent of his fantasy value while high-usage guards Bradley Beal and Russell Westbrook are both healthy....

Wizards' Garrison Mathews: Good to go Monday
Mathews will start Monday's game against the Rockets, Ava Wallace of the Washington Post reports.
Mathews sustained a bruised thigh during Sunday's win over Boston, but it won't prevent him from making his third consecutive start at small forward. Mathews was held scoreless (0-2 FG, 0-2 3Pt) in 20 minutes Sunday, but he went for 14 points while doing 4-for-10 from three-point land in 25 minutes Friday night against New York.... See More ...

Wizards' Garrison Mathews: Battling quad concern
The Wizards list Mathews as questionable for Monday's game against the Rockets with a right quadriceps contusion.
Mathews is tending to the injury in the aftermath of Sunday's 104-91 win over the Celtics. The second-year wing retained his spot in the starting five over Davis Bertans in the contest, logging 20 minutes and finishing with zero points (0-2 FG, 0-2 3Pt), three rebounds and two steals. Bertans or Deni Avdija would likely pick up the start at small forward if Mathews can't play Monday.... See More ... See Less
Wizards' Garrison Mathews: Remains in starting five
Mathews will start Sunday's game against the Celtics, Fred Katz of The Athletic reports.
The 24-year-old made a spot start Friday with Bradley Beal (rest) sitting out, and he'll remain in the lineup Sunday despite Beal retaking the court. Mathews saw a major bump in playing time with 25 minutes and had 14 points (4-13 FG, 4-10 3Pt, 2-2 FT), two blocks and one rebound, though it was his increased effort that led coach Scott Brooks to keep him in the starting five, per Ava Wallace of The Washington Post....
