  • Wizards' Johnny Davis: Misses another practice

    Wizards coach Wes Unseld Jr. said that Davis (knee) was held out of practice Friday, Ava Wallace of The Washington Post reports.

    Davis has now missed two straight days of practice due to right knee tendinitis. The 2022 No.1 pick has struggled so far in preseason but could have an opportunity to turn that around Monday versus the Hornets, provided can give it a go.

  • Wizards' Johnny Davis: Doesn't practice Thursday

    Davis missed Thursday's practice session due to knee tendinitis, Chase Hughes of NBC Sports Washington reports.

    Davis hasn't been particularly effective over his first two preseason matchups, totaling just six points, seven rebounds, four assists and four steals in 47 minutes. It's not yet clear whether his knee injury will impact his availability for Monday's exhibition game in Charlotte.

  • Wizards' Johnny Davis: Struggles in Wizards debut

    Davis posted four points (0-5 FG, 4-4 FT), three assists, three steals and two rebounds in 22 minutes in Friday's preseason contest with the Warriors in Japan.

    Davis was unable to convert on any of his field goals Friday. However, he was able to be disruptive on defense and get to the free throw line. Ultimately, Davis will take time to adjust to the NBA and will likely come off the bench to start the season.

  • Wizards' Johnny Davis: Scores 11 points in 24 minutes

    Davis finished Sunday's Las Vegas Summer League game against the Suns with 11 points (4-11 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT), four rebounds, an assist and a steal.

    After a rough debut Saturday night against Detroit (six points, 1-11 FG), Davis was able to bounce back with a more encouraging effort in what turned into a blowout win for Washington. Davis has plenty of upside as a scorer, rebounder and defender, but he'll likely be a fringe target in most fantasy leagues to begin the year. However, Davis should have a chance to earn a sizable role in Washington, so he could emerge as a decent points/rebounds/steals target if he's able to avoid some of the usual rookie-guard pitfalls.

  • Wizards' Johnny Davis: Struggles in Summer League debut

    Davis finished with six points (1-9 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 4-4 FT), five rebounds and two assists in 29 minutes during Saturday's 105-99 Las Vegas Summer League loss to the Pistons.

    Davis was selected with the No. 10 overall pick in last month's draft, and he's expected to compete for the starting point guard spot with Monte Morris. Saturday marked Davis' first action as a professional. He struggled shooting the ball and committed five fouls. On a positive note, the rookie made his way to the free-throw line for four attempts and kept his turnovers (two) low. The Wisconsin product will aim to improve in the Wizards' next exhibition, which is Sunday against the Suns.

  • Johnny Davis: Selected No. 10 by Wizards

    Davis was selected by the Wizards with the 10th overall pick in the 2022 NBA Draft.

    After averaging 19.7 points, 8.2 rebounds and 2.1 rebounds over the course of a brilliant sophomore season with the Wisconsin Badgers, Davis now finds himself as a member of the Wizards. The 6-foot-5 guard joins Bradley Beal, Tomas Satoransky and Ish Smith in Washington's backcourt. With Beal's future with the team up in the air and Satoransky likely not in the long-term plans, Davis has a shot at seeing big minutes during his rookie season -- particularly if Beal is moved. However, with players like Kyle Kuzma, Kristaps Porzingis and Corey Kispert on the roster, Davis will still have plenty of competition for touches.
