Lopez played 26 minutes off the bench and added 10 points (5-9 FG), seven rebounds, three assists and one block in Thursday's victory over the Clippers.
Lopez saw his streak of consecutive games in which he made all of his shots come to an end with a miss in the second quarter of Thursday's win. Still, Lopez has seen double-digit scoring in three straight games while adding a block in each of those contests. During that span, Lopez is averaging 11.3 points, 3.3 rebounds and 1.0 blocks while shooting 78.9 percent from the field.
Lopez played 14 minutes off the bench, and dropped 14 points (6-6 FG, 2-2 FT) and one block in Tuesday's loss to the Grizzlies.
Lopez has gone two straight games without missing a shot. While he's been perfect from the field and free throw line, he has not provided much else, adding just three rebounds and one assist over that time.
Lopez recorded 10 points (4-4 FG, 2-2 FT), three rebounds, one assist and one block over 28 minutes in Sunday's 111-110 loss to the Celtics.
Lopez had plenty of playing time against Boston on Sunday, and he returned to form after recording just two points in the first half of the back-to-back set Saturday. The 32-year-old center was perfect from the floor during the narrow loss and is now averaging 8.0 points and 3.4 rebounds over 23.4 minutes per game across his past five appearances.
Lopez compiled 10 points (3-8 FG, 4-6 FT), 11 rebounds, two assists, two steals and a blocked shot in Saturday's 118-111 win over the Trail Blazers.
Lopez's double-double was his second of the season and first since an 11-point, 11-rebound effort Jan. 11. He contributed on the defensive end as well, helping the Wizards earn their fourth straight win. Though he has settled into a reserve role, Lopez has maintained a key spot in Washington's rotation with per-game averages of 10.1 points and 5.1 boards over his past eight games.
Lopez had 12 points (3-5 FG, 6-8 FT) and three boards in Monday's win over the Rockets.
Lopez is serving as the Wizards' primary backup center, but the move to the bench hasn't had much of an effect on his workload. Over his last six games, Lopez is averaging 22.7 minutes per contest, which he's translated to 10.3 points and 4.3 rebounds. He's a solid real-life player, but Lopez isn't producing enough to warrant attention in most fantasy leagues.
Lopez played 19 minutes off the bench and went for 13 points (5-7 FG, 3-4 FT) while adding five rebounds, one assist and one block during a loss to the Raptors on Wednesday.
Lopez went 5-for-5 in the first half before attempting just two shots in the second half (both in the third quarter) and missing both of them. Despite playing fewer minutes than Alex Len, who started the game, Lopez was still able to outscore Len while adding more offensive rebounds. In his last four games, Lopez has scored in double figures twice while adding at least five rebounds in each contest.
Lopez tallied 14 points (6-12 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 2-4 FT), five rebounds and one steal over 23 minutes in Sunday's 119-97 loss to the Hornets.
Lopez moved to the bench for Sunday's game, but he still saw plenty of playing time and finished second on the team with 14 points. His time on the court far outpaced Alex Len's eight minutes, and Lopez was the most productive bench player for the Wizards.
Lopez will come off the bench for Sunday's game against the Hornets, Chase Hughes of NBC Sports Washington reports.
Alex Len will get the nod as the starting center for the front end of the back-to-back set after outplaying both Lopez and Moritz Wagner of late. Expect the demotion to the second unit to come with a slight reduction in playing time for Lopez, who had averaged 8.4 points, 4.9 rebounds and 1.4 assists in 21.3 minutes per game while starting each of the Wizards' last nine contests since Thomas Bryant (knee) suffered a season-ending injury.
Lopez recorded six points (3-5 FG, 0-1 3 Pt), seven rebounds, one assist and one block over 20 minutes in Friday's 122-95 loss to Miami.
Lopez hasn't been very productive on the scoreboard recently, but he led the team with seven rebounds in Friday's loss. He's failed to score in double figures in four of the last five contests, averaging 6.6 points and 4.0 rebounds over 17.8 minutes per game.
Lopez had two points (1-1 FG), one rebound and one block during Tuesday's 132-121 loss to Portland.
It's the first time since Jan. 8 that Lopez has played fewer than 18 minutes, with Moritz Wagner and Alex Len both seeing center minutes at his expense Tuesday. Lopez has started the past seven games since Thomas Bryant (knee) was lost for the season and should continue to have an expanded role.
Lopez recorded 10 points (4-5 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 2-2 FT), four rebounds and one steal across 18 minutes Sunday in a 149-146 win versus Brooklyn.
Lopez has been the Wizards' starting center since Thomas Bryant suffered his season-ending ACL tear. He averaged 6.0 points off their bench but logged an average of 9.8 across six starts. Considering Lopez's minutes also went up from 15.3 to 23.5, it appears that his current scoring production could be a long-lasting one.
Lopez was ejected from Friday's game against Atlanta after receiving two technical fouls, Fred Katz of The Athletic reports.
Lopez received a pair of technical fouls on the bench Friday after arguing with the officials, and he was ejected from the game in the third quarter as a result. He totaled six points (3-5 FG) and four rebounds over 20 minutes prior to his removal from the contest. Moritz Wagner and Alex Len should see increased run for the Wizards over the second half.
Lopez registered 14 points (5-8 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 3-3 FT), three rebounds and two assists across 23 minutes in Wednesday's loss against the Pelicans.
Lopez continues to produce as a starter, and the absence of names such as Russell Westbrook (rest), Davis Bertans and Rui Hachimura (both due to COVID-19 protocols) allowed the big man to work as the Wizards' second-best scoring option behind Bradley Beal. Lopez took advantage of the chance and delivered his season-highest scoring output, meaning he has scored in double digits in four of his last five games. He should benefit from an expanded role moving forward with Thomas Bryant (knee) out for the season, but he is also expected to play a secondary role on offense once the entire team is healthy and available.
Lopez scored 10 points (5-7 FG) while adding three rebounds, three assists and a steal across 30 minutes in Tuesday's loss against the Rockets.
Lopez has been promoted to the starting lineup following Thomas Bryant's season-ending knee injury, but his numbers have been far from impressive -- he has logged just three starts and is averaging 9.7 points and 7.0 rebounds in that stretch. He is, however, making 72.2 percent of his field-goal attempts, so at the very least, he can provide value in category-based leagues due to his strong shooting numbers.
Lopez scored 11 points (5-6 FG, 1-5 FT) while adding 11 rebounds and two assists in 26 minutes during Monday's 128-107 win over the Suns.
Making his first start since the season-ending injury to Thomas Bryant (knee), Lopez focused more on working the glass than hitting three-pointers, and the result was his first double-double since March 2019. The veteran big also played a season-high 26 minutes, while Moritz Wagner played 22 off the bench. Expect the two to continue seeing similar workloads moving forward, but it would be remarkable if Lopez, who was averaging only 3.5 boards a game coming into Monday, was so easily able to transform his game and production overnight.
Lopez will start Monday's game against the Suns in place of Thomas Bryant (knee), Chase Hughes of NBC Sports Washington reports.
With Bryant done for the season due to a torn ACL, the veteran will get first crack at the starting center job. Coach Scott Brooks indicated that he'll use a "by-committee" approach to the position, however, so it's likely that Moritz Wagner and Rui Hachimura will also spend considerable time at the five. Lopez finished Saturday's game against Miami with a season-high 13 points in 21 minutes.
Lopez recorded a season-high 13 points (5-6 FG, 3-4 FT) to go with a rebound in 21 minutes off the bench Saturday in the Wizards' 128-124 loss to the Heat.
After starting center Thomas Bryant (knee) exited two minutes into the contest with what appeared to be a serious injury, Lopez and Moritz Wagner (20 minutes) saw the bulk of the work at the position the rest of the night. Bryant is slated to undergo an MRI on Sunday that should shed more light on the nature of his injury along with a projected timeline for his return, but fantasy managers in deeper leagues may want to proactively look to add Lopez and/or Wagner to their rosters. If Bryant does end up missing time, expect Lopez and Wagner to split the minutes at center in relatively even fashion, as they did Saturday.
Lopez went scoreless during Thursday's loss against the Bulls, grabbing one rebound and committing two fouls in six minutes off the bench.
Lopez has seen his minutes diminish since the beginning of the season and is yet to crack the 20-minute mark off the bench, averaging 4.2 points and 3.6 rebounds per game so far. He's firmly entrenched as Thomas Bryant's backup, and he'll probably need a rash of injuries in the Wizards' frontcourt to see a sizable uptick on his upside.
Lopez (undisclosed) is off the injury report ahead of Sunday's matchup against the Nets.
It was unclear if Lopez would play in the preseason opener, but he's been cleared. Still, it seems unlikely he'll see a lot of minutes since he's a veteran.
Coach Scott Brooks said on Friday that Lopez may miss the team's first preseason game Sunday, Fred Katz of The Athletic reports.
Lopez, who signed with Washington in the offseason, may miss the team's first preseason game for undisclosed reasons. The team may simply be giving the 32-year-old 7-footer some extended time off before the regular season gets underway.
