Brown contributed seven points (3-4 FG, 1-2 FT), three assists, two steals and one rebound across 21 minutes Sunday in the Wizards' 126-117 loss to the Bulls.
Brown has excelled at gathering up steals of late -- he's averaging 2.1 per game over his last seven appearances -- but when the Wizards are relatively close to full strength, the forward doesn't consistently do enough in other areas to represent much more than a one-category streamer in most leagues. Over that same seven-game stretch, he's only chipped in 7.6 points, 3.4 rebounds and 3.4 assists in 21.7 minutes.
Brown posted six points (3-8 FG, 0-1 3Pt), five rebounds, three assists and two steals in 24 minutes during Sunday's 106-99 loss to the Grizzlies.
With the Wizards getting healthier, Brown's role has started to decrease. He saw 29.8 minutes per game in January, but he's garnering only 25.5 minutes in four February games. It seems likely he'll continue to see sixth-man minutes in the Wizards' rotation, but his days of consistent fantasy relevance could be coming to a close assuming the team stays healthy.
Brown registered 16 points (5-10 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 4-5 FT), seven rebounds and five assists across 35 minutes in Tuesday's 151-131 loss to the Bucks.
The return of Davis Bertans and the usage bump for Isaac Bonga have compromised Brown's output to a point where he's fighting for minutes with the second unit. With the game well out of hand for the Wizards, Brown saw some extended play in the second half, but there's no question that the forward's fortunes are on a downward trend. Rui Hachimura's return is imminent, and Brown may find it challenging to distinguish himself in a crowded depth chart.
Brown recorded 19 points (7-11 FG, 3-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT), three rebounds and two assists in 32 minutes off the bench during Sunday's 152-133 loss at Atlanta.
Though he turned in quality offensive production in this up-and-down affair, Brown hasn't been all that reliable of a scorer of late. He averaged just 9.0 points in the Wizards' prior six games combined, albeit while converting at a strong 52.4 percent from the field. Now that the Wizards have gotten reasonably healthy in January, Brown shapes up as more of a fantasy option in 14- or 16-team leagues rather than standard formats.
Brown contributed 22 points (9-13 FG, 2-4 3PT, 2-3 FT), eight rebounds, three steals and one assist in 26 minutes during Friday's 140-111 loss to the Raptors.
Brown bounced back following a scoreless effort in Wednesday's loss to the Bulls, matching his career high in steals while delivering an extremely efficient scoring performance and cleaning up on the glass. With Jordan McRae (ankle) suffering an injury, Brown could be in line for even more minutes during Monday's matchup versus the Pistons, and the sophomore shooting guard has scored at least 20 four times in the last 20 games.
Brown scored 18 points (7-12 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 3-4 FT) while adding 10 rebounds, two steals and an assist in 35 minutes off the bench during Friday's 111-101 win over the Hawks.
It was the second-year forward's second straight double-double and his third in the last four games. Brown is averaging 15.3 points, 8.3 boards, 2.3 assists, 1.5 steals and 1.1 threes over the last 10 games, but with Davis Bertans now back in action, expect the 20-year-old's minutes and production to begin to dwindle.
Brown supplied 18 points (6-17 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 5-7 FT), 11 rebounds, five assists and two steals in 35 minutes off the bench Wednesday in the Wizards' 123-89 loss to the Magic.
The 20-year-old had the most shots and boards for a Wizards team that struggled against the Magic. His 2020 performances brings his averages to 16.4 points and 9.6 rebounds since the dawn of the decade, perhaps suggesting a spot in the starting lineup. But considering Brown's bad 2019-20 shooting record as a starter (35.5 percent through 14 starts) and star teammate Bradley Beal's likely demand to have the ball himself, the sophomore may be better off bringing value from the bench for now.
Brown finished with 15 points (5-12 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 3-4 FT), nine rebounds, and one steal in 36 minutes of a 99-94 win against the Celtics on Monday.
Brown continues to see extended playing time with injuries ravaging the team's frontcourt, and he's responded well averaging 16 points per game during that stretch. While he'll see his playing time cut once the players ahead of him return to the fold, Brown should continue to be an effective stopgap in the meantime.
Brown supplied 25 points (10-12 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 3-3 FT), 14 rebounds, three assists and one steal in 36 minutes off the bench Saturday in the Wizards' 128-114 win over the Nuggets.
With the Wizards' starting five not offering much production, coach Scott Brooks leaned heavily on Brown and Ish Smith (32 points, eight assists) on the second unit to shoulder the load. Washington seems to prefer to deploy Brown in a bench role, but he should routinely flirt with 30-plus minutes regardless of how he's deployed. Washington won't have any of Thomas Bryant (foot), Moritz Wagner (ankle) and Rui Hachimura (groin) available for multiple games, and Davis Bertans (quadriceps) and Bradley Beal (leg) could miss additional action as well, so Brown looks like he'll have a path to steady playing time for the foreseeable future.
Brown will come off the bench Saturday against the Nuggets, Fred Katz of The Athletic reports.
Coach Scott Brooks will give Jordan McRae the nod Saturday with Bradley Beal (leg) out. In 17 appearances off the bench this season, Brown has averaged 11.8 points, 5.8 rebounds, 2.4 assists and 1.4 steals.
Brown will start Friday's contest against the Trail Blazers, Fred Katz of The Athletic reports.
With Bradley Beal (leg) out, Brown will make his 14th start of the season. In those games, he's averaged 6.2 points, 4.9 rebounds, 2.0 assists and 1.3 steals in 22.8 minutes.
Brown totaled 14 points (5-12 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 3-4 FT), seven rebounds, one assist and one steal in 28 minutes during Wednesday's 122-101 loss to the Magic.
Brown provided another serviceable line despite returning to a reserve role with Bradley Beal (calf) back in the lineup. Brown has now reached double figures in scoring in nine of the last 12 games. Moreover, the 20-year-old sophomore is among the team's few young building blocks with legitimate potential, so he should continue to receive decent minutes going forward this season.
Brown will come off the bench Wednesday against the Magic.
With Bradley Beal (calf) returning to the starting five, Brown will get pushed back into his usual bench role. In 16 appearances off the bench, he's averaging 11.7 points, 5.7 rebounds, 2.4 assists and 1.4 steals in 25.6 minutes.
Brown will start Saturday's game against the Knicks.
Brown will start over Isaac Bonga and get the nod for the first time since Dec. 1. In Brown's 11 previous starts this season, he's averaged 6.0 points, 4.9 rebounds, 2.0 assists and 1.1 steals in 20.9 minutes.
Brown posted 13 points (6-14 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 0-1 FT), six rebounds, an assist and a steal across 28 minutes in the Wizards' 132-102 loss to the Pistons on Thursday night.
After scoring 29 and stuffing the stat sheet on Monday, Brown had a more mundane effort on Thursday. Brown has scored at least 10 points in his past seven games and has carved out a sizable role for the Wizards. Brown is averaging 11.9 points and 6.0 rebounds in 26.5 minutes per game in the month of December.
Brown Jr. had 26 points (9-15 FG, 2-4 3PT, 6-7 FT), nine rebounds, seven assists, one steal and one block in 32 minutes off the bench during Monday's 121-115 win at the Knicks.
Brown Jr. has emerged as a reliable scoring threat on the Wizards' second unit as he has scored 10 or more points in seven of his last eight games, while playing 22 or more minutes in every one of those contests. He should remain fantasy relevant across most formats given his steady role off the bench for the Wizards.
Brown had 19 points (8-15 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 2-2 FT) and five rebounds in 30 minutes during Saturday's 125-108 loss to the 76ers.
Brown has reached double figures in scoring in five straight games while earning at least 30 minutes in three of the last seven. He had only earned 30-plus minutes once through his first 17 appearances this season, so the sophomore is clearly more involved as of late. Monday's matchup versus the lowly Knicks represents a friendly matchup for fantasy purposes.
Brown tallied 10 points (4-9 FG, 2-3 3Pt), six rebounds and two assists in 28 minutes during Monday's 133-119 victory over Detroit.
Brown continues to come off the bench for the Wizards and has certainly looked better in a backup role. Over the past two weeks, Brown has been a top-90 player, thanks primarily to his 1.6 steals per game and 51 percent from the field. Rui Hachimura (groin) was forced to leave the game and if he misses any time, Brown could see a small uptick in his usage.
Brown scored eight points (3-5 FG, 2-3 FT), and accrued four rebounds, four assists and two steals in a win over the 76ers on Thursday.
Brown hasn't exactly been on the standard league radar this season. Most fantasy owners who were hoping for a second-year breakout have been disappointed thus far. If there's a bright spot, it's that Brown's per 36 numbers have been solid with 12.0 points, 8.7 boards, 3.3 assists and 2.2 steals. If the 20-year old somehow gets thrust into a larger role at some point this season, he could be a valuable pickup. For now, he's better served for the extra-deep leagues.
Brown will come off the bench Tuesday night against the Magic, Chase Hughes of NBC Sports Washington reports.
Brown had started the last 11 games heading into Tuesday's clash, but with the Wizards forced to adjust their lineup due to injury, he'll revert to a bench role. He's averaging 9.8 points, five rebounds and 1.5 assists in four games off the bench this season.
