Hachimura dropped 27 points (11-18 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 4-4 FT) in a victory over the 76ers on Thursday, adding seven boards and two steals.
If it weren't for the rookie's 30-point explosion against the Clippers on Dec. 1, this would have been a season-high scoring performance. With Thomas Bryant (foot) out, and Moritz Wagner (ankle) missing time in their previous two games before returning in this one, Hachimura has recently seen playing time at the five. Even though Wagner has returned, it's possible that Hachimura continues to see a bit of run at the center spot as head coach Scott Brooks recently made a comment about how he'd like to see his rookie improve his screen-setting game.
Hachimura scored 15 points (6-12 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 3-3 FT), and gathered six rebounds and four assists in a loss to the Magic on Tuesday.
After dropping a career-high 30 points against the Clippers on Sunday, Hachimura followed it up with another efficient, double-digit performance. It may not be as exciting as 30 points, but when you consider his perfect shooting from the charity stripe and just one turnover, it's still more than a serviceable outing for the 21-year old. Thomas Bryant (foot) and Moritz Wagner (ankle) were both out in this one, contributing to Hachimura surpassing the 30-minute mark in each of his last two games. Wagner doesn't appear to be in danger of missing much more time. Bryant's current timetable looks to be three weeks. Upon their respective returns, Hachimura's playing time will almost assuredly drop back down.
Hachimura will start at center Tuesday night against the Magic, Chase Hughes of NBC Sports Washington reports.
The Wizards are without three centers due to injury, leaving Hachimura as the next man up. He'll slide over to center and is starting alongside Davis Bertans and Isaac Bonga in the frontcourt.
Hachimura tallied 30 points (13-23 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 2-3 FT), nine rebounds, three assists and a steal across 38 minutes in Sunday's 150-125 loss to the Clippers.
Sunday's game was by far Hachimura's best of the season, and this is the kind of stat line the Wizards were looking for when they drafted the Gonzaga product in the first round. At 6-12, the Wizards are clearly in rebuilding mode, so they're going to give Hachimura every opportunity to establish himself as a future cornerstone of this franchise. Although his floor isn't reliable yet, he's an upside candidate worth rostering.
Hachimura had 16 points (7-15 FG, 0-3 3PT, 2-2 FT), eight rebounds, one assist and one block in 26 minutes during Friday's 125-103 loss at the Lakers.
Hachimura hasn't registered a double-double since the first game of the season, and he has struggled with consistency in recent outings -- he has failed to reach the 10-point mark in seven of his last 14 games, but has scored at least 15 points in six of the remaining seven over that span. Given his recent shooting woes -- he is making 40.4 percent of his field goal attempts in his last five games -- his upside might not be very high ahead of a tough Sunday matchup on the road against the Clippers.
Hachimura posted seven points (2-7 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 2-2 FT), four rebounds, one assist and one steal in Sunday's 113-106 loss to the Kings.
After two 15-point games in a row, Hachimura had little impact against the Kings. The 21-year-old is averaging 10.9 points per game and has converted on 50 percent of his shots this season, though he has been inconsistent in his scoring in his recent games, with about half of his scoring totals under eight points. Even with the inconsistent numbers, Washington seems to be working on giving their prized rookie a larger role within the offense.
Hachimura registered 21 points (9-12 FG, 0-1 3PT, 3-4 FT), four rebounds, two assists and one steal in 24 minutes during Wednesday's 140-133 loss at Boston.
The rookie bounced back from a zero-point effort last week with back-to-back 21-point performances. Hachimura scored 20-plus points just once in his first seven appearances, but seems to have taken a bigger role on the Wizards' offensive scheme of late. He will aim to extend his solid run of play Friday at Minnesota.
Hachimura scored 21 points (10-13 FG, 1-2 FT) while adding seven rebounds, three assists and two steals in 35 minutes during Friday's 113-100 loss to the Cavaliers.
One game after missing every shot he attempted, Hachimura put together an extremely efficient offensive performance en route to scoring 20 or more points for the second time in eight contests. The 21-year-old rookie has had early growing pains, but the 2-6 Wizards will be patient with him in what's shaping up to be a rebuilding season.
Hachimura had zero points (0-5 FG, 0-1 3Pt), eight rebounds and one assist in 21 minutes during Wednesday's 121-106 loss to the Pacers.
Hachimura couldn't buy a bucket but did tally quite a few boards given his limited minutes. After averaging 18.0 points across the first four games, Hachimura has combined for 16 in the last three. The 21-year-old rookie will likely remain inconsistent throughout the majority of the season, but Friday's contest against a poor Cavaliers defense gives him a good chance to snap out of this rut.
Hachimura only had four points (2-11 FG, 0-2 3PT) and two rebounds in 22 minutes during Washington's 131-109 loss against Minnesota on Saturday.
The first-round pick had his worst performance of the season, making just 18.1 percent of his shots while posting season-low figures in points, rebounds, field goals made and minutes. This could be nothing more than a bump on the road, however, as Hachimura had previously scored at least 14 points in each of his four previous outings. Up next, the Wizards play Monday against the Pistons at home.
Hachimura had 23 points (9-15 FG, 3-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT) and five rebounds during Washington's 159-158 loss against Houston on Wednesday.
Hachimura continues to score at a surprisingly productive and efficient rate for a rookie -- he has made at least 50 percent of his field goals in three of four appearances so far, while scoring at least 14 points in every single game. Hachimura doesn't do much aside from scoring, but that should be enough to keep him fantasy relevant on most formats. Washington will face Minnesota on Saturday.
Hachimura scored 19 points (8-20 FG, 0-4 3Pt. 3-3 FT) while adding five rebounds, two assists and a steal in 35 minutes during Friday's 97-85 win over the Thunder.
After solid numbers in his NBA debut Wednesday, Hachimura kicked his scoring up a notch in this one, although it wasn't the most efficient shooting performance. The ninth overall pick in this year's draft figures to see all the playing time he can handle in the Washington frontcourt alongside Thomas Bryant, and in the early going Hachimura looks ready for a significant role.
Hachimura posted 14 points (7-15 FG, 0-3 3Pt) and 10 rebounds in 24 minutes during Wednesday's season-opening loss to the Mavericks.
Hachimura had a solid professional debut, notching a double-double in just 24 minutes of play. While the double-double was a great start for the rookie, he'll need to diversify his offensive gain and prove that he can consistently contribute in the defensive categories if he's to provide any consistent fantasy value moving forward. That said, it was a great debut for Hachimura, who will look to keep the momentum in Friday's tilt with Oklahoma City.
Hachimura is expected to start the 2019-20 regular season as the team's starting power forward, Candace Buckner of The Washington Post reports.
Hachimura has started throughout the preseason, so this doesn't come as a major surprise. Davis Bertans and Moritz Wanger are expected to come off the bench behind him.
Hachimura will be available for Sunday's game against the Bucks.
Hachimura was rested for Friday's game, but he'll be back in action Sunday and will get the starting nod at power forward. Coach Scott Brooks confirmed earlier in the day that the rookie will spend time guarding reigning MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo.
Hachimura will rest Friday against the Knicks, Candace Buckner of The Washington Post reports.
The Wizards will give their rookie some rest Friday after he's appeared in two preseason games. In 18.5 minutes, he's averaging 11.5 points, 5.5 rebounds and 1.0 assist.
Hachimura registered 11 points (4-8 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 3-4 FT), seven rebounds and a block over 16 minutes in Wednesday's preseason game against Guangzhou.
Hachimura knocked down half of his attempts from the field, though he was unable to hit from beyond the arc. Despite this, he managed to lead the starting five in points scored. Hachimura also looked strong on the boards, pulling down seven rebounds.
Hachimura scored 12 points (4-8 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 3-4 FT) and registered four rebounds along with two assists in 21 minutes Monday against New York.
Hachimura knocked home 50 percent of his field goals in the exhibition, and he also managed to contribute on the boards. The rookie is expected to impress with his versatility this year, as he could see time at center and the two forward positions throughout the regular season according to head coach Scott Brooks.
Coach Scott Brooks said Monday that Hachimura could see time at all three frontcourt spots, Fred Katz of The Athletic reports.
After stating that the Wizards have three starting spots up for grabs, Brooks noted that Hachimura will spend plenty of time at power forward, but he said the rookie can also play center, as well as small forward. "He's definitely gonna play a lot of four, but I see him, whether it's early part of the season or some part of the season playing three," Brooks said. "And who knows? We go small and he can play the five. It's a position-less league, and we're no different." Hachimura doesn't have extensive experience playing on the wing, but as Brooks' words imply, it may be necessary given the Wizards' current injury situation. With practices set to begin Tuesday, both C.J. Miles (foot) and Troy Brown (calf) will be on the shelf.
Hachimura (knee) is back at full strength after missing the end of the FIBA World Cup, Chase Hughes of NBC Sports Washington reports.
Hachimura was held out of Team Japan's final two games in the World Cup due to a sore knee and general fatigue, but according to Wizards' GM Tommy Sheppard, Hachimura played 90 minutes of pickup ball Wednesday and "did not leave the court." The knee ailment was never believed to be anything serious, but this is nonetheless a positive indication as training camp approaches. The No. 9 overall pick could step into a significant role right away for a shallow Washington team.
