Pasecniks was released by the Wizards on Sunday, Fred Katz of The Athletic reports.
Pasecniks appeared in just one game for a grand total of six minutes across the first 11 games of the year. The 25-year-old appeared in 27 games for the Wizards during the 2019-20 season.
Pasecniks will be a healthy inactive for Thursday's game against the Bulls, Fred Katz of The Athletic reports.
The Wizards will have two-way player Garrison Mathews available to make his season debut off the bench, so Pasecniks will be donning street clothes for the front end of the back-to-back set. Pasecniks wasn't included in coach Scott Brooks' rotation over the Wizards' first four games.
Pasecniks saw three minutes during Tuesday's 122-115 win over the Knicks.
Pasecniks made his 24th appearance but didn't see much time nor attempt a single shot attempt. He can be avoided in most formats.
Pasecniks will be available for Tuesday's game against the Knicks, Chase Hughes of NBC Sports Washington reports.
Pasecniks has only appeared in three games since the start of February, but he'll be an option off the bench should coach Scott Brooks decide to use him.
The Wizards assigned Pasecniks to the G League's Capital City Go-Go on Tuesday.
Wizards teammates Gary Payton and Admiral Schofield will join Pasecniks in the G League, as all three players are scheduled to suit up for Capital City in Tuesday's matchup with the Maine Red Claws. Expect Pasecniks to be recalled ahead of Wednesday's matchup with the Nets, though he likely won't find himself in coach Scott Brooks' rotation for that contest.
Pasecniks (hip) isn't listed on the injury report ahead of Sunday's game against the Bulls.
Pasecniks appeared on the Wizards' injury report prior to the All-Star break with a sore left hip, but he was available for the team's first game of the second half Friday versus Cleveland. The rookie center ultimately went unused off the bench in the Wizards' five-point loss, and that's likely to be a common occurrence in competitive games moving forward. Pasecniks -- whose last appearance with the Wizards came back on Jan. 28 -- is buried behind Ian Mahinmi, Thomas Bryant and Moritz Wagner on the depth chart at center.
Pasecniks (hip) is listed questionable for Wednesday's game against the Knicks.
Pasecniks popped up on the injury report ahead of Tuesday night's game and ended up sitting out. There's a good chance that's the case again Wednesday, though either way, Pasecniks has fallen out of the regular rotation.
Pasecniks is listed as questionable for Tuesday's game against the Bulls due to tightness in his left hip.
Pasecniks is a new addition to the injury report as the Wizards head into the first night of a back-to-back, but he's not on the fantasy radar right now, having racked up five straight DNP-CDs.
The Wizards recalled Pasecniks from the G League's Capital City Go-Go on Sunday.
Pasecniks will be up with the parent club for Sunday's game against the Grizzlies after a brief pit stop with the Go-Go. He logged 20 minutes for the G League affiliate Saturday in its 133-106 win over the Erie BayHawks, contributing 16 points (5-8 FG, 3-4 FT), nine boards, two steals and one block.
Pasecniks was recalled from the G League ahead of Friday's game against the Mavericks.
Pasecniks hasn't played in an NBA game since Jan. 28. He'll get an opportunity to do so Friday while backing up Ian Mahinmi.
The Wizards assigned Pasecniks to the G League's Capital City Go-Go on Tuesday.
With Rui Hachimura (groin) and Moritz Wagner (ankle) returning from extended absences in Monday's 125-117 loss to the Warriors, the Wizards were back to full strength in the frontcourt, which left no minutes available for Pasecniks. The rookie center had already been out of the rotation for the prior two games while Thomas Bryant and Ian Mahinmi split the playing time at center, and the additions of Hachimura and Wagner only further damage Pasecniks' chances of recapturing a meaningful role off the bench. Expect Pasecniks to at least see extensive minutes Wednesday in the Go-Go's matchup with the Grand Rapids Drive.
Pasecniks pitched in four points (1-2 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 2-2 FT), three rebounds, one assist and one block in 15 minutes during Thursday's 124-112 win over the Cavaliers.
Pasecniks returned to the rotation following a two-game absence with a sprained ankle and saw limited minutes as expected. With Thomas Bryant re-entering the starting lineup and Rui Hachimura (groin) and Moritz Wagner (ankle) likely to be back in the fold soon, Pasecniks may have a hard time carving out double-digit minutes on a nightly basis going forward, though he remains a potential dart-throw target heading into Sunday's matchup against Atlanta.
Coach Scott Brooks said Pasecniks (ankle) will be available Thursday against the Cavaliers, though he will be on a minutes limit.
Pasecniks has been cleared to return after missing the past two games due to a sprained left ankle. In his two games prior to getting injured, the big man posted averages of 10.5 points, 4.5 rebounds, 1.5 steals and 1.0 assist in 20.5 minutes per tilt.
Pasecniks (ankle) is questionable for Thursday's game against the Cavaliers.
Pasecniks is dealing with a sprained left ankle and has missed the past two games as a result. The big man will likely go through his pregame routine before his availability is determined.
Pasecniks (ankle) will remain out Wednesday against the Heat.
It'll be the second straight absence for Pasecniks, who's dealing with a sprained left ankle. Expect Thomas Bryant and Ian Mahinmi to continue to see most of the minutes at center, while Davis Bertans, Isaac Bonga and Troy Brown hold down the frontcourt.
Pasecniks (ankle) is questionable for Wednesday's game against Miami.
Pasecniks missed Monday's clash with a left ankle issue, and his status remains in question heading into his team's next matchup. He'll be re-evaluated closer to tipoff to determine his availability.
Pasecniks (ankle) will be held out of Monday's game against the Pistons.
Pasecniks will miss his first game since sustaining an ankle injury during Friday's game against Toronto. Considering the team has yet to elaborate on a possible timeline for the rookie center, the injury can continue to be considered a day-to-day matter. Look for Jonathan Williams to see a minor boost in minutes until Pasecniks' able to return.
The Wizards list Pasecniks as questionable for Monday's game against the Pistons with a sprained left ankle.
Pasecniks presumably picked up the injury Friday, when he poured in 11 points (4-6 FG, 3-5 FT) and six rebounds in a 140-111 loss to the Raptors. The rookie is now third on the depth chart at center with Thomas Bryant and Ian Mahinmi both healthy, so his potential absence Monday wouldn't loom too large.
The Wizards converted Pasecnik's two-way deal into a standard NBA contract Sunday, Candace Buckner of The Washington Post reports.
After inking his two-way deal Dec. 17, the 2017 first-round pick was immediately plugged into the NBA rotation, as injuries to big men Thomas Bryant (foot), Moritz Wagner (ankle), Rui Hachimura (groin) and Davis Bertans (quadriceps) forced Washington to rely heavily on Pasecniks. The 7-foot-1 center acquitted himself well in his initial exposure to the NBA, averaging 8.2 points, 6.2 rebounds and 1.1 assists in 22.1 minutes per game over his first 13 appearances. He'll now be locked into a spot on the 15-man roster for the rest of the season, but with Bertans back in action and Bryant closing in on a return, Pasecniks' playing time will likely take a hit in the weeks to come.
Pasecniks tallied 16 points (6-8 FG, 4-6 FT), five rebounds, three assists and two blocks in 35 minutes off the bench during Wednesday's 123-89 loss at the Magic.
It was the highest number of minutes the 24-year-old received in a single game, and he made the most of it by scoring most of his opportunities inside the paint. The impending return of Thomas Bryant (foot) likely limits Pasecniks' time on the court, but stat lines like these do provide substantial evidence as to why he is deserving of an NBA roster spot.
