Rockets' D.J. Wilson: Out Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilson (COVID-19 protocols) is out Saturday against the Jazz, Alykhan Bijani of The Athletic reports.

Wilson remains in protocols and will miss a fourth straight game. His next chance to play arrives Monday against the Trail Blazers.

Rockets' D.J. Wilson: Remains in protocols
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilson (health and safety protocols) will not play Wednesday against Philadelphia, Danielle Lerner of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Wilson missed Sunday's loss to New York and he'll remain out for at least one more contest as he deals with the NBA's COVID-19 protocols. Prior to the setback, Wilson had taken a larger role for the banged-up Rockets, averaging 12.8 points, 7.0 rebounds, 2.0 assists, 1.8 threes and 1.0 steals over his last four appearances.

Rockets' D.J. Wilson: Ruled out Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilson has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Knicks due to health and safety protocols, Mark Berman of Fox 26 Houston reports.

Wilson had come off the bench in each of the last three games and averaged 8.7 points and 6.7 rebounds in 21.3 minutes per contest during that time. It's not yet clear how much time Wilson will miss, but Jae'Sean Tate could see increased run in his absence.

Rockets' D.J. Wilson: Double-double off bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilson scored 15 points (5-11 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 2-2 FT) with 12 rebounds and one assist in a 143-136 victory over the Bucks on Thursday.

Wilson scored in double figures for the second time in his last three games and picked up his first double-double of the season. The forward has had somewhat of an inconsistent role with Houston but saw 25 minutes of action against his former team Thursday. Despite the big performance, Wilson typically isn't a player to target in most weekly lineup leagues.

Rockets' D.J. Wilson: Coming off bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilson will come off the bench Tuesday against the Timberwolves, Adam Wexler of Sportstalk 790 Houston reports.

With Kelly Olynyk and Christian Wood available, Wilson will resume his usual role as a bench option. This month, he's averaged 5.5 points and 3.2 rebounds in 13.4 minutes.

Rockets' D.J. Wilson: Leads team with 25 points in start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilson posted 25 points (10-17 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 2-2 FT), eight rebounds, four assists and three steals across 40 minutes in Saturday's 129-116 loss to the Nuggets.

The Rockets faced an uphill battle Saturday with a slim seven-man rotation, but they found an unexpected bright spot in Wilson, who aptly filled in for Christian Wood (ankle). Since his trade from the Bucks, Wilson has seen increased production in what seems to be a full rebuild for the Rockets, but few expected a team-leading performance. The Rockets are currently reeling with multiple injuries, so more appearances from the former Michigan standout could be in store as they plod through the final month of the season.

Rockets' D.J. Wilson: Steps into starting role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilson is in the starting lineup for Saturday's game against the Nuggets, Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Wilson will benefit from increased opportunities as the Rockets work to plan around numerous injuries. He's only handled more than 15 minutes on a single occasion this month, however, so being listed as a starter won't necessarily make it easy to trust Wilson for fantasy purposes.

Rockets' D.J. Wilson: Scores eight points off bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilson delivered eight points (3-7 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 1-4 FT), two rebounds and two steals across 17 minutes off the bench in Friday's loss against the Nuggets.

Wilson's eight-point output stands as his second-best scoring effort of the campaign, though fantasy managers shouldn't expect much from him on most nights. His playing time has been inconsistent, and he's failed to reach the 20-minute mark in 27 appearances this season, so he shouldn't be targeted in any format unless that situation changes.

Rockets' D.J. Wilson: Seeing inconsistent playing time
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilson is averaging 10.3 minutes, 3.7 points, 2.7 rebounds, 0.4 blocks, 0.3 steals and 0.3 assists during seven games in April.

Kelly Olynyk has taken over as a starter in the frontcourt, averaging 30.9 minutes over the last 10 games after being traded to Houston in part of the Victor Oladipo deal. During that span, Wilson has lost his shooting stroke, connecting on only 28.6 percent from three in April. It appears as if Wilson is the odd man out of the team's rotation despite cratering out of the Western Conference playoff race.

Rockets' D.J. Wilson: Nears double-double in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilson logged eight points (3-8 FG, 1-4 3PT, 1-2 FT), eight rebounds, one assist and one block in 19 minutes of play Wednesday in a 122-97 loss to the Hornets.

Wilson had arguably one of his best performances of the season, recording a season-high eight rebounds. Since Wilson was traded from the Bucks, his minutes have steadily increased over the first few games with his new team. Considering the Rockets footing near the bottom of the Western Conference, it's entirely possible the 2017 first-round pick could see a rise in playing time over the ensuing months as the team attempts to develop some of its younger players.

Rockets' D.J. Wilson: Available Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilson (not injury related) will be available to make his debut for the Rockets during Friday's game against the Pistons, Ben DuBose of USA Today reports.

Wilson was traded from the Bucks to the Rockets on Wednesday, and he'll suit up off the bench against Detroit on Friday. Wilson averaged just 8.8 minutes per game with the Bucks to begin the season but could see some extended looks for the Rockets once he gets acquainted with the team's system.

Rockets' D.J. Wilson: Shipped to Houston
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Bucks traded Wilson, D.J. Augustin and an unprotected 2023 first-round pick to the Rockets on Wednesday in exchange for P.J. Tucker, Rodions Kurucs (oblique) and a 2022 first-round pick, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

Wilson has appeared in only two of the past 16 games for Milwaukee, so the move to Houston can only increase his prospective playing time. The 25-year-old is unlikely to have a major role for the Rockets but will provide frontcourt depth for a young roster in need of just that. As Houston careens toward the high-lottery, it's possible they'll give Wilson, a former first-round pick, some extended looks down the stretch.

Bucks' D.J. Wilson: Doesn't play Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilson didn't play during Thursday's win against Memphis.

Wilson has only seen the court just once over the past 13 games now, logging five minutes against Denver on Tuesday. In 11 total games played, the center is averring 3.6 points and 2.1 rebounds in 9.0 minutes.

Bucks' D.J. Wilson: Sees garbage-time run in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilson tallied five points (2-4 FG, 1-2 3Pt) and one rebound in nine minutes Monday in the Bucks' 134-106 win over the Trail Blazers.

Wilson didn't leave the bench until 9:23 remained in the fourth quarter, when the Bucks had already built their lead to 37 points. The nine-minute cameo was Wilson's first appearance in nine games, a clear indication he won't factor into head coach Mike Budenholzer's rotation in more competitive contests.

Bucks' D.J. Wilson: Tallies season-high 12 points
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilson secured 12 points (5-9 FG, 2-3 3Pt), three rebounds and one assist across 16 minutes during Saturday's win over the Cavaliers.

Wilson's 12 points marked a season high as he scored in double figures for the first time this season despite the limited minutes. The 24-year-old has taken on a small role for Milwaukee so far this season, averaging 4.7 points, 3.0 rebounds and 1.2 threes across 11.3 minutes per game.

Bucks' D.J. Wilson: Sees court in two games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilson has appeared in two games so far for the Bucks.

Although Wilson has finally been able to crack the rotation over the past two games, the center has been playing during junk time. Wilson posted nine points and four rebounds against Golden State on Christmas Day, but that was after the Bucks were up big on the Warriors in the second half. Although Wilson is second on the depth chart at the center position, the Bucks have been playing Bobby Portis more at the five-spot when Brook Lopez is on the bench.

Bucks' D.J. Wilson: Trade to Sacramento falls apart
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilson will remain in Milwaukee, as the deal that sent him to Sacramento fell through, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

The Michigan product will remain a Buck after Bogdan Bogdanovic apparently elected to enter restricted free agency and forgo the reported sign-and-trade deal that previously dealt him to Milwaukee, with Wilson joining Sacramento. Thus, Wilson, along with Donte DiVincenzo and Ersan Ilyasova, will stay in Milwaukee for now.

Kings' D.J. Wilson: Dealt to Kings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

was traded to the Kings early Tuesday morning as part of a package that brings Bogdan Bogdanovic to Milwaukee via sign-and-trade, Adrian Wojnarowksi of ESPN reports.

A first-round pick in 2017, Wilson never found a consistent role in Milwaukee, but that was due in large part to the team's veteran depth. Wilson has shown promise at the G League level, and Sacramento could be in position to offer the former Michigan standout a slightly larger role in 2020-21.

Bucks' D.J. Wilson: Starting in finale
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilson will start Thursday's matchup against the Grizzlies, Ted Davis of the Bucks Radio Network reports.

With Giannis Antetokounmpo (suspension) and Ersan Ilyasova (elbow) out, Wilson is making his first start of the season during the Bucks' final seeding game. Across the five occasions this season that he's seen 20-plus minutes, he's averaged 12.4 points, 5.2 rebounds and 1.0 assists.

March 10, 2020 12:44 PM
Bucks' D.J. Wilson: Nears double-double in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilson played 21 minutes off the bench in Monday's 109-95 loss to the Nuggets, finishing with 10 points (4-10 FG, 2-6 3Pt), nine rebounds and one assist.

Though he was cleared to play in the front end of a back-to-back set Sunday in Phoenix, Wilson, who had been dealing with a left ankle sprain, didn't play in that contest. That was likely the result of a coach's decision, but Wilson was able to see minutes Monday thanks in large part to the Bucks holding out seven rotation regulars for either rest- or injury-related reasons. Wilson's appearance off the bench signifies that he's healthy again, but he'll presumably find himself outside of the rotation again Thursday, when the Bucks should have most of their key players available again for a game against the Celtics.
