Mathews (wrist) will play Sunday against the Hornets, Chris Miller of NBC Sports Washington reports.
Mathews will be available for the finale as expected despite a sprained wrist. He went for nine points and two boards across 17 minutes in Friday's win over Cleveland.
Mathews is probable for Sunday's contest against the Hornets due to a sprained right wrist.
Mathews will likely play through the injury during the finale. Since the start of April, he's averaged 3.7 points in 13.1 minutes per game.
Mathews will come off the bench Friday against the Cavaliers, Chase Hughes of NBC Sports Washington reports.
Coach Scott Brooks initially said that Mathews would start, but Chandler Hutchison will get the nod instead. In 37 games off the bench this season, Mathews has averaged 5.4 points and 1.2 rebounds in 14.8 minutes.
Mathews will start Monday's game against the Hawks.
Filling in for the injured Bradley Beal (hamstring), Mathews will make his first start since early April. The 24-year-old will likely have an increased workload Monday, but he's still not an overly exciting fantasy option. In the last five starts, he's only scored in double figures one time.
Mathews (coach's decision) didn't play during Monday's win over the Pacers.
This was Mathews' second straight absence after playing in 55 straight games. The second-year guard out of Lipscomb is currently averaging 5.7 points and 1.4 rebounds in 57 appearances.
Mathews scored 17 points (5-7 FG, 4-6 3Pt, 3-3 FT) across 29 minutes in Monday's loss to the Raptors.
Mathews continued to see an increased opportunity in the absence of Bradley Beal (hip). He got hot in the second quarter, knocking down three triples and tallying 12 points. While it was a strong shooting night for Mathews, he has reached double-digit points only twice in his last 18 games and will see his role decrease once Beal is able to return.
Mathews will come off the bench Monday against the Raptors, Fred Katz of The Athletic reports.
The 24-year-old started Saturday in place of Bradley Beal (hip) and was blanked in 19 minutes, so Raul Neto will receive the nod Monday with Beal still sidelined. Mathews should still be involved off the bench, but he shouldn't draw much fantasy interest given his averages of 3.0 points, 0.8 rebounds and 0.4 assists over the past five games.
Mathews will start Saturday's game against the Mavericks, Fred Katz of The Athletic reports.
Jerome Robinson had been starting in Bradley Beal's (hip) absence, but Mathews will get the nod this time. Over 21 prior starts this season, he's averaged 6.7 points and 1.8 rebounds in 19.7 minutes.
Mathews will come off the bench Saturday against the Pistons, Chase Hughes of NBC Sports Washington reports.
Mathews is being replaced in the starting five by rookie Deni Avdija. In 15 games off the bench this season, Mathews has averaged 7.7 points and 1.7 rebounds in 16.5 minutes.
Mathews logged 16 points (5-6 FG, 3-4 3PT, 3-3 FT), three assists, two steals and one rebound in a 106-102 loss to the Knicks on Thursday.
Mathews tied a season-high 35 minutes to go along with an efficient shooting performance from behind the three-point arc. The guard managed to put up a well-rounded statline given his standards, as he more than doubled his season average in points and recorded a season-high three assists. Although the rookie receives inconsistent minutes each game, he's earned a starting role with the team and has been given more playing time as the season has gone on.
Mathews is averaging 7.8 points, 2.3 rebounds and 1.9 three-pointers in 18.3 minutes per game while shooting 45.5 percent from the field and 47.2 percent from downtown in his nine contests since entering the starting five.
Mathews delivered his best outing of the nine starts in Saturday's 128-112 win over the Timberwolves, grabbing a career-high nine rebounds while pouring in 18 points on a trio of three-pointers and a 7-for-7 showing from the free-throw line. With at least two triples in four straight games, Mathews has emerged as a useful streamer in that category, but that's about the extent of his fantasy value while high-usage guards Bradley Beal and Russell Westbrook are both healthy.
Mathews will start Monday's game against the Rockets, Ava Wallace of the Washington Post reports.
Mathews sustained a bruised thigh during Sunday's win over Boston, but it won't prevent him from making his third consecutive start at small forward. Mathews was held scoreless (0-2 FG, 0-2 3Pt) in 20 minutes Sunday, but he went for 14 points while doing 4-for-10 from three-point land in 25 minutes Friday night against New York.
The Wizards list Mathews as questionable for Monday's game against the Rockets with a right quadriceps contusion.
Mathews is tending to the injury in the aftermath of Sunday's 104-91 win over the Celtics. The second-year wing retained his spot in the starting five over Davis Bertans in the contest, logging 20 minutes and finishing with zero points (0-2 FG, 0-2 3Pt), three rebounds and two steals. Bertans or Deni Avdija would likely pick up the start at small forward if Mathews can't play Monday.

The 24-year-old made a spot start Friday with Bradley Beal (rest) sitting out, and he'll remain in the lineup Sunday despite Beal retaking the court. Mathews saw a major bump in playing time with 25 minutes and had 14 points (4-13 FG, 4-10 3Pt, 2-2 FT), two blocks and one rebound, though it was his increased effort that led coach Scott Brooks to keep him in the starting five, per Ava Wallace of The Washington Post.
Mathews added 14 points (4-13 FG, 4-10 3Pt, 2-2 FT), two blocks and one rebound over 25 minutes in the Wizards' 109-91 loss to the Knicks on Friday.
Making his first career start in place of Bradley Beal (rest), Mathews made the most of it. His 13 shot attempts were second on the team behind Russell Westbrook and he led the Wizards in three-pointers made. Prior to this spot start, Mathews totaled just 26 points across six February games.
Mathews will start at shooting guard Friday against the Knicks, freelance NBA reporter Quinton Mayo reports.
With Bradley Beal (rest) out, Mathews will draw his first start of the season. In seven games this season where Mathews has seen at least 20 minutes, he has averaged 11.7 points (2.3 threes), 2.7 rebounds and 1.7 steals.
Mathews played in 21 minutes and added 10 points (1-2 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 7-8 FT), two rebounds, one assist and one steal in Friday's 116-100 loss to the Hawks.
Mathews scored all 10 points in a span of just over nine minutes between the third and fourth quarter. While Bradley Beal took most of the shots in the final period, it was Mathews who did most of his damage at the free throw line getting there eight times and making seven of them (both career bests).
Mathews registered 15 points (5-11 FG, 3-9 3Pt, 2-3 FT), four rebounds, two steals and one assist across 28 minutes off the bench in Wednesday's loss against the Pelicans.
Mathews didn't see the court in seven of the first eight Wizards' games, but he has seen an expanded role of late and has logged at least 20 minutes in each of the team's last five contests. He is averaging 13.0 points per game during that five-game stretch, but he's likely to feature in a minor role off the bench once most of the players that are in the league's health and safety protocols return to the court. He can be a decent streaming option on a short-term basis, but his long-term upside is minimal unless he finds a way to log 20-plus minutes on a regular basis.
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.
