Neto will come off the bench for Saturday's Game 3 against the 76ers.

Neto (hamstring) is probable for Tuesday's play-in game against the Celtics.
Coach Scott Brooks said Monday morning that the 28-year-old would be a game-time decision for Tuesday's contest, but the guard's outlook appears to have improved.

Wizards head coach Scott Brooks said Neto (hamstring) will be a game-time decision Tuesday for Washington's matchup with Boston in the play-in tournament, Ava Wallace of The Washington Post reports.
Neto's sore left hamstring kept him off the floor for Washington's final two regular-season contests, but Brooks isn't closing the door on the Brazilian guard making it back for the start of the postseason. After rookie Deni Avdija was shut down for the season in late April with a fractured ankle, Neto moved up to the top unit as part of a three-guard starting five featuring Russell Westbrook and Bradley Beal. While starting in his final 14 appearances of the regular season, Neto averaged 11.3 points, 3.1 rebounds, 3.1 assists, 1.3 steals and 1.3 three-pointers in 28.1 minutes per game while shooting 53.4 percent from the floor, 48.6 percent from distance and 96.8 percent from the charity stripe.

Neto (hamstring) is out for Friday's matchup against the Cavaliers.
A sore left hamstring will keep Neto out for the second-to-last game of the regular season. He's started the past 14 games, but Chandler Hutchison and Davis Bertans will get the nod at shooting guard and small forward, respectively.
Neto is a game-time decision for Friday's game against the Cavaliers due to left hamstring tightness.
Neto has started each of the past 14 games and has averaged 11.3 points, 3.1 assists, 3.1 rebounds and 1.3 steals. If he sits out, Garrison Mathews is expected to start.
Neto registered 25 points (7-11 FG, 5-7 3Pt, 6-6 FT), three assists, two rebounds and two steals across 39 minutes in Thursday's overtime win over the Raptors.
Neto has started 11 games in a row and ended a streak of three straight single-digit scoring appearances with his best scoring output of the campaign. He's averaging 11.8 points, 3.3 rebounds and 3.3 assists over his last 11 appearances since moving to the starting unit on a permanent basis.
Neto scored 25 points (7-11 FG, 5-7 3Pt, 6-6 FT) and added three assists, two rebounds and two steals across 39 minutes in Thursday's 131-129 victory over Toronto.
The veteran guard made his 11th straight start and finished with career-high single-game marks of 39 minutes, 25 points and five three-pointers. Neto's opportunities have grown in his first season with Washington, and as a result he is posting career-best marks of 8.7 points, 2.4 rebounds and 1.1 steals per contest.
Neto had 17 points (6-7 FG, 2-2 3Pt, 3-4 FT), five rebounds, three assists and two steals in Friday's win over Cleveland.
Making a seventh consecutive start in the backcourt, Neto bounced back from a pair of lackluster efforts to post one of his better overall efforts of the season. For the most part, Neto isn't much of a fantasy option, but he's proven capable of occasional outbursts like Friday's.
Neto had 14 points (4-10 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 4-4 FT), a rebound, an assist and a steal across 28 minutes in Sunday's win over the Cavaliers.
Neto has started four games in a row and is expected to remain in that role going forward, as the lineup with three guards -- Neto, Russell Westbrook and Bradley Beal -- seems to be working so far. The Brazilian guard has scored in double digits in each of his last three games.
Neto had 18 points (7-11 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 1-1 FT), four assists, three rebounds and three steals in 36 minutes during Wednesday's 118-114 victory over the Warriors.
Neto remained in the starting lineup against the Warriors and delivered one of his best all-around performances of the season. Perhaps more notable than Neto's line itself was the fact that his outlook for picking up steady minutes improved significantly due to the fractured ankle Deni Avdija suffered during the game. Avdija is expected to miss the rest of the season, and with Rui Hachimura (kneecap) still day-to-day, the Wizards will have to turn to supporting players like Neto to fill extra minutes. It's unclear if the Wizards plan to regularly include Neto in three-guard starting lineups alongside Bradley Beal and Russell Westbrook, or if the team will turn to more traditional small forwards in Isaac Bonga or Garrison Mathews to replace Avdija on the top unit.
Neto will start Monday's game against the Thunder.
Washington will start out with a three-guard lineup, as the 28-year-old takes the spot of Rui Hachimura (kneecap). Neto has averaged 11.5 points, 2.9 assists, 2.1 rebounds and 1.0 steals in 23.9 minutes across eight starts this season.
Neto posted 24 points (9-17 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 3-3 FT), a rebound and an assist across 29 minutes in Saturday's loss against the Suns.
Neto was the Wizards' highest scorer in this game -- an impressive feat considering Russell Westbrook was in the starting lineup and logged 33 minutes -- and the Brazilian delivered one of his best performances of the season. Neto has started two of the Wizards' last four games and while he's not expected to score 20-plus points on a nightly basis, he has scored in double digits in four of his last eight outings.
Neto will start Saturday's game against the Suns, freelance NBA reporter Quinton Mayo reports.

Neto will come off the bench for Wednesday's game against the Magic, Chase Hughes of NBC Sports Washington reports.
With Bradley Beal back in the lineup after a five-game absence, Neto will shift back to a bench role. He's averaging 8.1 points, 2.3 rebounds and 2.2 assists in 20.9 minutes per game this season and should see his normal playing time Wednesday, likely with the Wizards' second unit.
Neto will start Monday's game against the Raptors.
The 28-year-old will make his eighth start of the season with Bradley Beal (hip) sitting out Monday. Neto is averaging 10.7 points, 3.0 assists, 2.3 rebounds and 1.2 steals in 22.7 minutes as a starter this season.
