Mathews had 22 points (6-12 FG, 4-7 3Pt, 6-7 FT), two rebounds, two steals and one assist across 23 minutes in Saturday's 128-124 loss to the Heat.
Mathews served as the Wizards' primary bench option and found his way to lead them in scoring. The sophomore is not expected to continue this form, considering he played just seven minutes of basketball through nine games. However, Mathews could hold some value if the Wizards continue to deal with injuries like they are now.
Mathews will be available for Thursday's game against the Bulls, Fred Katz of The Athletic reports.
Mathews hasn't seen the court for the Wizards yet while technically being with the G League since he's on a two-way deal. He's been called up, however, and he could play Thursday.
Mathews is with the G League's Captial City Go-Go and will not be available for the Wizards' season opener against the 76ers on Wednesday.
Mathews is on a two-way contract with the Wizards' organization, so he'll spend plenty of time in the G League. That will be the case Wednesday.
Mathews (hip) is available for Thursday's preseason action against the Pistons, Fred Katz of The Athletic reports.
Mathews was dealing with a hip pointer, but he's been cleared to play in the second-to-last preseason effort for Washington. Mathews played 20 minutes in his one preseason appearance, posting 10 points, one assist and one block.
Mathews is questionable for Thursday's preseason game against the Pistons due to a left hip pointer.
Mathews played 20 minutes in his one preseason appearance, posting 10 points, one assist and one block. However, he may be sidelined Thursday.
Mathews will sign his qualifying offer and remain with the Wizards, Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports reports.
The 24-year-old was a restricted free agent and decided to stay with Washington on another two-way deal. Mathews made his NBA debut last season and averaged 5.4 points and 1.3 rebounds in 12.6 minutes over 18 games. He should operate as a reserve option in the backcourt.
Mathews did not travel with the Wizards to Orlando for personal reasons and it's unclear whether he'll join the team at a later date, Fred Katz of The Athletic reports. He does not have COVID-19.
With both Bradley Beal (shoulder) and Davis Bertans (personal) not with the Wizards for the restart, Mathews was in line for a significant minutes increase. However, this has thrown his status into question.
Mathews finished with zero points (0-3 FG, 0-2 3Pt), a career-high five steals and one rebound over 17 minutes Sunday in the Wizards' 100-89 loss to the Heat.
Summoned from the G League shortly before the game to provide extra depth on the wing while Jerome Robinson (Achilles) was sidelined, Mathews came off the bench to make his first appearance at the NBA level since Feb. 7. Mathews proceeded to exceed his output in the steals column (three) from his prior 16 career games combined, making this one of the bigger outlier performances of the season. Nonetheless, the two-way player will likely drop back out of coach Scott Brooks' rotation as soon as Robinson is healthy again.
Mathews has been recalled from the G League ahead of Friday's game against the Mavericks.
Mathews hasn't seen NBA action since Jan. 6, but he'll get an opportunity to take the court Friday. In his 13 appearances with the Wizards, he's averaged 7.2 points and 1.7 rebounds.
Mathews (ankle) started and played 20 minutes for the G League's Capital City Go-Go in their 130-121 loss Saturday to the Lakeland Magic. He finished with eight points (3-8 FG, 2-6 3Pt), two assists, one steal and one block.
The appearance over the weekend was Mathews' first at either the NBA or G League level since Jan. 6, as he had spent nearly a month recovering from a sprained right ankle. The Wizards' long list of injuries early in January allowed Mathews to claim a spot in coach Scott Brooks' rotation, but the undrafted rookie out of Lipscomb seems poised to see the bulk of his action in the G League now that the parent club has reclaimed better health. Washington is expected to return Moritz Wagner (ankle) and Rui Hachimura (groin) from long absences Monday versus the Warriors, leaving John Wall (Achilles) and Jordan McRae (ankle) as the only players on the team's injured list.
Mathews (ankle) is a healthy scratch for Saturday's matchup against the Nets, Fred Katz of The Athletic reports.
Mathews has healed from an ankle injury but won't be re-integrated into the rotation yet. His next chance to take the court arrives Monday against the Warriors.
Mathews (ankle) is a game-time call for Saturday's game against the Nets, Fred Katz of The Athletic reports.
Mathews is healthy but could end up being a scratch still. He hasn't played since Jan. 6 due to a sprained right ankle.
Matthew (ankle) won't play in Sunday's game against Atlanta.
As anticipated, Matthews will miss a ninth consecutive contest as he continues to struggle with a right ankle sprain. The team hasn't provided a firm timeline for his return and has labeled Matthews as out indefinitely, indicating that he'unlikely to return in the foreseeable future.
The Wizards list Mathews (ankle) as out for Monday's game against the Pistons.
Mathews was labeled as out indefinitely after spraining his right ankle in a Jan. 6 win over the Celtics. With no reports surfacing since that time indicating that the two-way player has resumed practicing, expect Mathews to miss additional games beyond Monday. Mathews had held a rotational role for the Wizards due to the team's mounting injuries prior to getting hurt himself, but Washington finds itself in better health these days. As a result, Mathews could head to the G League's Capital City Go-Go once he gains clearance for game action.
Coach Scott Brooks said Wednesday that Mathews will miss "some time" after spraining his ankle earlier in the week, Candace Buckner of The Washington Post reports.
Mathews injured his ankle during Monday's game against the Celtics, and while X-rays cleared the rookie of any structural damage, he had to be carried off the court and is expected to miss multiple games as a result. Prior to getting hurt, Mathews played more than 15 minutes in four consecutive games, averaging 15.8 points during that stretch.
Mathews (ankle) won't play Wednesday against the Magic.
Mathews suffered a nasty ankle sprain during Monday's matchup with the Celtics, so it's no surprise that he'll be held out Wednesday. According to Candace Buckner of The Washington Post, X-rays cleared Mathews of any structural damage to his ankle, but the fact that he needed to be carried off the court Monday suggests a multi-game absence is a likely outcome. The two-way player had taken on an enhanced role out of necessity for a banged-up Wizards squad, playing 20-plus minutes in three of the team's four games before he exited early against Boston.
Mathews won't return to Monday's game against the Celtics after suffering a right ankle sprain.
Mathews was unable to put any weight on his right leg after suffering the injury, but this is relatively good news for the guard. A timeline for his return has yet to be established.
Mathews was carried off the court after suffering an apparent right ankle injury during Monday's game against Boston, Chase Hughes of NBC Sports Washington reports.
The severity of the injury is unclear at this time, though it didn't look good for Mathews, who was averaging 15.8 points over his last four contests. It seems unlikely that he'll return to Monday's matchup.
Mathews finished Friday's 122-103 loss to Portland with 18 points (6-9 FG, 5-7 3PT, 1-1 FT), two rebounds and one assist in 25 minutes of action.
The rookie out of Lipscomb University has finished with double-digit points in the Wizards' last three games, including a career-high 28-point performance Dec. 30. Shooting close to 60 percent from three in his last three contests (58.8) is a big reason why Mathews has found his way onto fantasy radars after such a slow start to his NBA career. Also, Bradley Beal (leg) being out contributed to Mathews' increased role.
Mathews totaled 28 points (6-9 FG, 4-7 3Pt, 12-13 FT) and four rebounds in 29 minutes during Monday's 123-105 win over the Heat.
Mathews finished with career highs in scoring, threes and minutes while matching his best rebounding total. He almost scored as many points in this one as he combined for in his first 10 appearances (30). However, if Bradley Beal (calf) is able to give it a go during Wednesday's matchup versus the Magic, Mathews may not see such a heavy dose of minutes once again.
