DeJuan Blair: Sets season-high scoring figure
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Blair finished Saturday's win over the Charge with 18 points (8-13 FG, 2-2 FT), four rebounds, three steals and two assists.

The veteran big man put together that damage over the course of just 14 minutes. Blair has played with Austin for much of the season but has only participated in 19 games, averaging 7.7 points, 4.4 rebounds and 1.5 assists in about 13 minutes per contest.

DeJuan Blair: Signs with Argentinian squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Blair has agreed to a contract with San Lorenzo de Almagra of Argentina.

Blair hasn't played in the NBA since the 2015-16 campaign and has most recently played in China. It seems unlikely at this point that he'll make a leap back to the NBA, though is still only 28 years old.

DeJuan Blair: Inks deal with Chinese club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Blair signed a contract Wednesday with the Jiangsu Tongxi Monkey Kings of the Chinese Basketball Association, international basketball writer David Pick reports.

Blair will head overseas for the first time in his career following seven seasons in the NBA with the Spurs, Mavericks and Wizards. The 6-foot-7 power forward had largely been out of the Wizards' rotation the last two seasons and had been out of basketball since February, when he was traded to the Suns and subsequently waived without playing a game for the team. A strong season with Jiangsu could perhaps put Blair on the radar for a contract with an NBA team when the CBA season concludes in the spring, but Blair likely wouldn't have more than a minimal role off the bench if he were to return to the NBA.

Suns' DeJuan Blair: Set to be waived
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Blair will be waived by the Suns on Monday, John Gambadoro of reports.

Blair came over from the Wizards along with Kris Humphries in last week's Markieff Morris deal, but it looks as though the Suns aren't interested in rostering the 26-year-old, who hasn't been a consistent rotational piece since the 2013-14 season. The former Pittsburgh standout will look to catch on with another team, but may have to wait until the offseason to find a new home if outside interest is low.

Suns' DeJuan Blair: Has been traded to the Suns
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Blair was traded to the Suns on Thursday along with Kris Humphries and a protected first-round pick in exchange for Markieff Morris, Marc J. Spears of Yahoo Sports reports.

Blair figures to be a deep bench asset with all of Tyson Chandler, Alex Len, Mirza Teletovic, Jon Leuer, and Humphries ahead of him on the depth chart in the frontcourt. The 26-year-old has appeared in just 29 games with the Wizards and is averaging 2.1 points and two rebounds over 7.5 minutes. There's a good chance the Suns will waive him, as the trade was mostly about securing the first-round draft pick.

Wizards' DeJuan Blair: Fails to see major minutes this season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Blair has averaged 2.1 points, 2.0 rebounds, 0.4 assists, 0.3 steals, and 0.1 blocks in 8 minutes per game through 29 games this season.

Blair has failed to see much time on the court through the first half of the season, in part because of a lingering knee injury that continues to make his availability questionable. He can look forward to the All-Star break as some extra time to rest up. Even if healthy, Blair is buried deep on the Wizards' bench behind the likes of Kris Humphries, Nene Hilario, and Jared Dudley.

Wizards' DeJuan Blair: Returns to the court Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Blair (knee) played 13 minutes off the bench in Monday's 114-100 win over the Bulls, providing eight points (4-6 FG), three rebounds, and one assist.

Blair had missed the Wizards' previous six games while dealing with a sore knee, but checked out fine during the team's morning shootaround and was given clearance to play. His contributions were needed with the Wizards missing Marcin Gortat (knee) and Kris Humphries (knee) while Nene Hilario (calf) and Drew Gooden (calf) only recently returned from injuries of their own, but once at least three of those players are fully healthy at the same time, Blair's spot in the rotation could be eliminated.

Wizards' DeJuan Blair: A game-time decision Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Blair (knee) is a game-time decision for Friday's game against Toronto, Jorge Castillo of the Washington Post reports.

Despite being cleared to play Wednesday, Blair did not get off the bench against the Cavaliers and now his knee injury has his status for Friday up in the air. With Kris Humphries (knee) out and Drew Gooden (calf) playing on a minutes restriction, another missed game from Blair would test Washington's front court depth.

Wizards' DeJuan Blair: Good to go Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Blair (knee) has been cleared to play Wednesday against the Cavs, Jorge Castillo of the Washington Post reports.

Blair has missed the last three games with soreness in his knee, but he'll be available off the bench Wednesday. The veteran could see a slightly increased role with Kris Humphries (knee) and Drew Gooden (calf) both sidelined.

Wizards' DeJuan Blair: Questionable for Wednesday's game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Blair (knee) took part in the Wizards' morning shootaround, but remains questionable to play in Wednesday's contest against the Cavaliers, CSN Mid-Atlantic's J. Michael reports.

The Wizards are finally starting to get healthy again, as all of Nene Hilario (calf), Gary Neal (quad), Drew Gooden (calf), and Blair were able to partake in shootaround. Hilario is the only player among the lot who has been confirmed as active for Wednesday's game, and his return may be enough to push Blair out of the rotation even if he too is cleared to play. Blair is averaging just 8.4 minutes over his 18 appearances, many of which had come after Hilario was sidelined.

Wizards' DeJuan Blair: Officially ruled out Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Blair (knee) has been ruled out of Sunday's tilt with the Heat, Jorge Castillo of the Washington Post reports.

Blair will miss a third straight game, as he continues to work his way back from a right knee injury. The Wizards are dealing with a slew of injuries, including the likes of Drew Gooden (calf), Bradley Beal (leg), Gary Neal (quad), Nene Hilario (calf) and Alan Anderson (ankle), so it's only a further blow to their already limited lineup.

Wizards' DeJuan Blair: Questionable for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Blair (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's matchup with the Heat, Jorge Castillo of the Washington Post reports.

Blair has missed the last two games with a right knee injury, but has been upgraded to questionable prior to Sunday's matchup with the Heat. Blair is averaging just 8.4 minutes over 18 games this season, so even when he returns, he'll struggle to field any meaningful minutes.

Wizards' DeJuan Blair: Will not play Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Blair (knee) was ruled out for Friday's game against the Magic.

Blair will be unavailable for the second game in a row due to his knee injury. The extent of his setback is uncertain, so consider him questionable for the Wizards' next game Sunday against the Heat.

Wizards' DeJuan Blair: Questionable to play Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Blair (knee) is considered questionable for Friday's game against the Magic, J. Michael of CSN Washington reports.

Blair will likely test out his right knee during pregame warmups to determine whether or not he'll be available. Even if healthy, however, Blair plays a limited role off the bench and isn't a viable option under most formats.

Wizards' DeJuan Blair: Dealing with right leg injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Blair was not available for Wednesday's game due to a right leg injury, Jorge Castlllo

Blair's absence left the Wizards with only nine available players in Wednesday's game. It's not clear if Blair's injury will limit him beyond Wednesday, but his next chance to play will come Friday against the Magic.

Wizards' DeJuan Blair: Doesn't play Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Blair (coach's decision) didn't play in Saturday's 109-101 win over the Hornets.

Despite the absences of Nene Hilario (calf), Drew Gooden (calf), and Otto Porter (thigh), Blair was unable to see the court, as coach Randy Wittman rolled with a tight eight-man rotation that saw every player receive at least 16 minutes. That arrangement likely won't be sustainable for long, but even if Blair is added to the rotation, he was only averaging 10 minutes while appearing in each of the Wizards' previous eight games.

Wizards' DeJuan Blair: Sees five minutes Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Blair played five minutes in Tuesday's win over the Bucks, producing one point (0-1 FG, 1-2 FT) and three assists.

Blair has been an inconsistent member of the Wizards' rotation this season, appearing in four of the team's nine games. He saw some run Tuesday with the Wizards winning by a 29-point margin, but since that doesn't figure to happen very often, he can't be counted on to see playing time on a nightly basis.

Wizards' DeJuan Blair: Didn't see any action Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Blair was DNP-CD in Washington's 102-99 win over the Spurs on Wednesday.

Blair hasn't been in the mix for Washington minutes early on this regular season, in fact he has appeared in just one game for four minutes. He's currently fighting for playing time against teammates Marcin Gortat, Nene Hilario, Kris Humphries, and Drew Gooden, and it's hard to imagine him having much of a role in the near future.

Wizards' DeJuan Blair: Returns to practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Blair (knee) returned to practice over the weekend and should be available for the start of the regular season, J. Michael of CSN Washington reports.

Blair took part in shootaround ahead of Friday's preseason finale against the Raptors, but ended up sitting out mainly for precautionary purposes. A sore right knee limited the big man to just three preseason outings, but he was effective when on the court, averaging 13 points and eight boards in those contests. With a couple days to heal up before Wednesday's opener against the Magic, Blair should be available off the bench, should coach Randy Wittman elected to turn to him.

Wizards' DeJuan Blair: Likely to sit for Wednesday's preseason game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Blair missed Tuesday's practice due to a knee injury and is unlikely to play in Wednesday's preseason game against the Heat, J. Michael of CSN Washington reports.

Blair is likely experiencing some soreness in the left knee after a productive showing in the team's last exhibition Saturday against the Bucks, during which he scored 12 points and pulled down 14 boards in just 18 minutes. The knee has been an issue for Blair on and off all training camp, but due to the limited playing time he'll see off the bench when the regular season tips off, it's not likely to be something that greatly inhibits him throughout the year.
