Bertans is averaging 10.7 points, 2.3 rebounds, 2.3 three-pointers and 2.0 assists in 27.0 minutes per contest through the Wizards' first three games of May.
Bertans' production has tailed off dramatically from his first season in Washington, but the 28-year-old at least remains a dependable source of three-point production. Though Bertans will likely stick in a bench role for Thursday's game against the Raptors, he should continue to see minutes in the mid-to-upper 20s while Rui Hachimura (illness) is sidelined for a second straight contest.
Bertans was held scoreless (0-6 FG, 0-6 3Pt) in Wednesday's win over Los Angeles, contributing two rebounds, one assist and one steal in 24 minutes.
The 28-year-old didn't score a single point for the first time through 47 games this season. Before Wednesday's game, Bertans had averaged 14.8 points, 4.0 three-pointers and 3.8 rebounds while shooting 45.5 percent from behind the arc over his past five contests. He'll look to bounce back Friday on the road against the Cavaliers.
Bertans recorded 19 points (5-12 FG, 4-10 3Pt, 5-5 FT), six rebounds and one steal in 30 minutes during Wednesday's 118-114 win over the Warriors.
The 28-year-old has now scored double-digit points in seven of his last eight games, a span in which he's averaged 15.2 points, 4.1 three-pointers and 3.7 rebounds. Bertans has seen his minutes spike recently with Rui Hachimura (knee) out of the lineup, but even when Hachimura returns, the fifth-year forward should continue being an elite source of three-pointers. Bertans should also pick up extra opportunities in the absence of rookie forward Deni Avdija, who is expected to miss the rest of the season after fracturing his ankle in Wednesday's win.
Bertans (personal) supplied 21 points (6-12 FG, 6-12 3Pt, 3-3 FT), three rebounds and two assists across 28 minutes off the bench in Monday's 119-107 win over the Thunder.
After missing the Wizards' previous two games to witness the birth of his child, the new father returned to the hardwood Monday and provided some key secondary scoring behind star guards Russell Westbrook and Bradley Beal. Bertans should be an elite streamer for the three-pointers whenever he plays, but his playing time could tail off a bit once Rui Hachimura (kneecap) -- who sat out Monday -- is back in action. Bertans' 28 minutes were his most since March 2.
Bertans (personal) is not on the injury report for Monday's game against the Thunder.
Following a two-game absence due to the birth of his child, Bertans has returned to the team and will presumably be available Monday night. With Rui Hachimura (knee) out, Bertans could be looking at a slightly increased role.

Bertans is out Friday against the Pelicans due to personal reasons.
Bertans has been playing well, as he's averaged 13.7 points per game over his past six appearances while shooting 50.0 percent from beyond the arc. In his absence Friday, Deni Avdija and Isaac Bonga are candidates to see more minutes.

Bertans didn't attempt any field goals from two-point range, but he still finished with an efficient effort from the field by draining four of his seven three-point tries. The forward has picked up his production of late, posting per-game averages of 13.7 points, 3.5 rebounds and 3.8 three-pointers over his past six games. Bertans has shot 50 percent from deep over that span while making at least two three-pointers in each of his games.
Bertans scored 10 points (3-7 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 1-1 FT) with four rebounds, one assist, one steal and one block in a 125-121 victory over Utah on Monday.
Bertans returned to the lineup after sitting out Saturday's contest and scored in double figures for the fourth time in his last five games. The forward has also made multiple threes in each of his last five games and shot 51.6 percent from distance over that stretch.

Despite being on a minutes restriction, Bertans has scored at or above his season average in each game since his return from a calf injury. Through those three games, Bertans has made a total of 14 triples -- and just one shot from inside the arc. While Bertans hasn't been a consistent source of scoring, he's good for these occasional breakout games in which he drops multiple threes.
Bertans will remain on a minutes restriction Wednesday against the Magic, Fred Katz of The Athletic reports. He'll come off the bench as Rui Hachimura re-enters the starting five.
Washington continues to be cautious with the sharpshooter after a calf injury cost him a string of seven consecutive games from March 21 through April 1. He made his return over the weekend against the Mavericks, finishing with 11 points in 20 minutes. Bertans was bumped up to 24 minutes in Monday's loss to Toronto, in which he hit five threes en route to 17 points. Coach Scott Brooks intimated that Bertans' workload will likely sit in that same range Wednesday.

Bertans is one of the most lethal three-point shooters in the NBA, and he should continue providing fantasy managers with elite three-pointers and decent points the rest of the way.
Bertans will start Saturday against the Mavericks and be on a minutes limit.
