Sam Dekker: To sign overseas
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dekker is expected to sign a contract with the Russian club Lokomotiv Kuban, Emiliano Carchia of Sportnado reports.

Dekker struggled to find a consistent role through his first four years in the NBA, seeing the most run with Houston in 2016-17. He averaged 6.5 points, 3.7 rebounds and 1.0 assist across 18.4 minutes in 77 appearances. It seems likely there was little interest in Dekker as a free agent, so he'll head overseas to continue his professional basketball career. Considering he'll be entering just his age 25 season, an NBA comeback could be in the cards.

Wizards' Sam Dekker: Doesn't get qualifying offer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dekker didn't have the qualifying offer extended to him by the Wizards, Chase Hughes of NBC Sports Washington reports.

The Wizards have until June 29th to extend Dekker the qualifying offer, otherwise, the former Wisconsin Badger will become an unrestricted free agent. In 38 games for Washington last year, Dekker averaged 6.1 points, 3.0 rebounds and 1.0 assist in 16.3 minutes per game.

Wizards' Sam Dekker: Doesn't play in Thursday's loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dekker (DNP-Coach's Decision) did not see the court in Thursday's 113-108 loss to the Nuggets.

Dekker has appeared in just two of of the last five game while combining for only one point (0-4 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 1-2 FT), two dimes, and one board across 18 minutes of action. The 24-year-old forward had earned double-digit minutes in five straight games prior to this recent stretch. However, unless he suddenly starts earning ample minutes again he's unlikely to provide much value during the last nine games of 2018-19.

Wizards' Sam Dekker: Cleared to play
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dekker (back) is available Friday against the Hornets.

Dekker hasn't played in either of the past two games, but he could make his return Friday. Across his past four appearances, he's averaging 5.8 points, 2.8 rebounds and 1.3 assists in 14.8 minutes.

Wizards' Sam Dekker: Out with sore back
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dekker (back) will not be available Wednesday against Orlando, NBC Sports Washington reports.

Dekker has battled a sore lower back at times this season, and he'll sit out Wednesday for the second consecutive game. Dekker's absence could mean a few extra minutes for Troy Brown or Jabari Parker.

January 29, 2019 06:04 PM
Wizards' Sam Dekker: Available Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dekker (back) will be available for Tuesday's game against the Cavs.

As expected, Dekker will be good to go after missing Sunday's game against the Spurs with a minor back issue. The Wisconsin product rarely reaches the 20-minute plateau, but he's averaging 17.2 minutes per game off the bench since the start of January.

January 29, 2019 05:48 PM
Wizards' Sam Dekker: Expected to play
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dekker (back) is on track to play Tuesday against Cleveland, Spencer Davies of Bball Insiders reports.

Although Dekker hasn't officially been cleared to play just yet, coach Scott Brooks believes both Ian Mahinmi and Dekker "should be good" for Tuesday's matchup. Expect a final decision on his status closer to tip.

Wizards' Sam Dekker: Game-time call Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dekker (back) participated in shootaround and is a game-time decision for Tuesday's game against the Cavaliers.

Dekker was sidelined for Sunday's game against the Spurs due to back spasms, but going through shootaround does leave some optimism regarding his status for Tuesday. Dekker will likely test things out one last time in pregame warmups before a decision is made.

January 28, 2019 08:52 PM
Wizards' Sam Dekker: Questionable for Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dekker (back) is listed as questionable for Tuesday's game against the Cavaliers.

Dekker was forced to miss the Wizards' last game with back spasms, and seems to still be suffering some of the effects of the injury. in the 13 games prior to Sunday's absence, he was playing 17.4 minutes per game. More information on his status should come out following Tuesday's morning shootaround.

January 27, 2019 06:56 PM
Wizards' Sam Dekker: Won't play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dekker (back) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Spurs.

Dekker was a late addition to Sunday's injury report due to a sore back, and it looks like after pregame warmups, it was determined he was not fit to play. His absence shouldn't have much of an impact on the Wizards' rotation.

January 27, 2019 05:44 PM
Wizards' Sam Dekker: Game-time decision Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dekker is questionable for Sunday's game against San Antonio due to a sore back.

Dekker was a late addition to the injury report, and he'll likely test his back during the pregame to determine his availability. Even when healthy, he's struggled of late, scoring just two points over his previous two contests.

Wizards' Sam Dekker: Scores 14 in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dekker finished with 14 points (4-9 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 5-6 FT), four assists, three rebounds and two steals across 22 minutes Tuesday against the 76ers.

Dekker was able to crack double-digits in the scoring column for the fourth time in his Wizards tenure. He received 22 minutes of run Tuesday, a slight bump up from his normal workload, likely due to the fact the Wizards were getting blown out by the third quarter. At this points, Dekker's 17.0 minutes per game aren't enough for him to produce a consistent fantasy-relevant line, but if the Wizards decide to give some of their younger players an extended look down the stretch, he could be worth a look.

Wizards' Sam Dekker: Back on bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dekker (undisclosed) has returned to the bench after briefly going into the locker room earlier during Friday's game against Chicago, Fred Katz of The Athletic reports.

Dekker got the attention of a team trainer and went into the locker room during the first half of Friday's matchup, but he's back on the bench and appears ready to check back into the game when needed.

December 28, 2018 08:00 PM
Wizards' Sam Dekker: Returns Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dekker (undisclosed) returned to Friday's game against the Bulls, Fred Katz of The Athletic reports.

Dekker went to the locker room for an unspecified reason, but will return to Friday's tilt. It's possible he lands on the injury report for Saturday's game against the Hornets.

December 28, 2018 07:52 PM
Wizards' Sam Dekker: Heads to locker room
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dekker went to the locker room during Friday's game against the Bulls, Chase Hughes of NBC Sports Washington reports.

It's not immediately clear what injury Dekker is dealing with. He should be considered questionable to return.

Wizards' Sam Dekker: Provides point per minute
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dekker supplied 15 points (7-8 FG, 1-2 3Pt) to go with two rebounds and one steal in 15 minutes off the bench Wednesday in the Wizards' 136-118 loss to the Rockets.

Since being traded to the Wizards on Dec. 7, Dekker has held a rotation spot for each of the six games in which he's been available. He's come through with outings of 20 and 15 points, but has combined for just 11 over the other four contests. The inconsistent offense coupled with minimal contributions in every other category except steals renders Dekker a rather unappealing fantasy entity.

December 16, 2018 09:24 PM
Wizards' Sam Dekker: Scores 20 points in Sunday's win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dekker dialed up 20 points (10-15 FG, 0-2 3Pt), five rebounds, four assists, and three steals in 22 minutes during Sunday's 128-110 win over the Lakers.

Dekker matched career highs in assists and steals while amassing a season high scoring total, this after receiving just 32 minutes across his first three appearances with the Wizards. Trevor Ariza wasn't available yet following the trade, Markieff Morris left the matchup due to a neck injury, and Otto Porter's knee kept him out of action as well. With Dwight Howard (lower body) out through the end of January, Dekker could be a regular part of the rotation for the foreseeable future, though it's a little early to assume he'll hold value outside of deeper leagues.

Wizards' Sam Dekker: Plays 10 minutes in Wizards debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dekker made his Wizards debut Monday night against the Pacers and finished with two points (1-3 FG, 0-1 3PT) in 10 minutes.

Acquired from the Cavs last week as part of a three-team deal, Dekker joined the Wizards on Monday and made his return to action after missing several weeks with an ankle injury. The Wisconsin product figures to be a regular part of the rotation for the shallow Wizards, but, barring an injury to Jeff Green, Kelly Oubre and/or Markieff Morris, he's unlikely to play enough minutes to be fantasy-relevant in standard formats.

December 10, 2018 07:00 PM
Wizards' Sam Dekker: Active Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dekker will be available off the Wizards' bench Monday against the Pacers, Zach Rosen of WashingtonWizards.com reports.

Dekker was dealt to Washington on Friday as part of a three-team deal, and he'll be available to make his debut after passing a physical on Sunday. The Wisconsin product was nursing an ankle injury prior to the trade and has not played in a game since Nov. 5. That, of course, was when Dekker was still a member of the Cavaliers.

December 9, 2018 02:44 PM
Wizards' Sam Dekker: Passes physical
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dekker (ankle) passed his physical and participated in Sunday's practice, Fred Katz of The Athletic reports.

Dekker's move to Washington is now official. That said, it's still unclear when he'll make his debut for the Wizards. Dekker hasn't played since Nov. 5 due to a sprained left ankle, though he's reportedly inching closer to a return.
