Wizards' Quenton Jackson: Close to double-double off bench
Jackson had 12 points (2-11 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 4-4 FT), three rebounds, nine assists and two steals across 29 minutes off the bench in Thursday's win over the Herd.
Jackson had an awful shooting performance, but he still made his presence felt as a playmaker after ending just one assist away from recording a double-double. He has played well this season regardless if he's handed a starting or a bench role.... See More ... See Less
Wizards' Jay Huff: Monster double-double Thursday
Huff recorded 31 points (11-16 FG, 3-4 3Pt, 3-4 FT), 16 rebounds, two assists, a steal and three blocks across 37 minutes in Thursday's win over the Herd.
Huff led the Go-Go in points, rebounds and blocks in this game. He's been excellent for Capital City, averaging 16.9 points with 7.6 rebounds per game since joining Capital City at the beginning of this month.... See More ... See Less
Wizards' Monte Morris: Questionable Sunday
Morris is questionable for Sunday's game against the Raptors due to left groin soreness.
Morris has appeared in nine straight games, averaging 9.3 points, 4.8 assists and 3.4 rebounds in 24.4 minutes. If he sits Sunday, more minutes should be available for Delon Wright, Kendrick Nunn, Jordan Goodwin and Johnny Davis.... See More ... See Less
Wizards' Bradley Beal: Out at Toronto
Beal (knee) will not play in Sunday's game against the Raptors, Josh Robbins of The Athletic reports.
Beal was diagnosed with a sprained left knee Friday and will be held out of Sunday's game due to the issue. Although his absence is disappointing for fantasy managers in the playoffs, Coach Wes Unseld tabbed Beal as day-to-day, so he should be back in action soon. With Kyle Kuzma (ankle) also out, Corey Kispert, Deni Avdija, Jordan Goodwin and Johnny Davis could all see expanded roles. Beal will have another chance to return Tuesday against the Celtics....

Wizards' Kyle Kuzma: Still out Sunday
Kuzma (ankle) will not play in Sunday's game against the Raptors, Josh Robbins of The Athletic reports.
Kuzma has been ruled out for a fourth straight contest after sustaining a sprained right ankle about a week ago. Deni Avdija, Corey Kispert and Anthony Gill should continue to see extended action with Kuzma on the sidelines. With Bradley Beal (knee) also out, Kristaps Porzingis should see a significant bump in usage. Kuzma's next chance to play will come Tuesday against Boston.... See More ... See Less
Wizards' Kristaps Porzingis: Posts great line in limited action
Porzingis finished with 23 points (7-11 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 7-7 FT), nine rebounds, five assists and four blocks in 28 minutes during Friday's 136-124 victory over the Spurs.
Despite no extensive garbage time and Porzingis committing zero fouls, the big man was still limited to 28 minutes. However, he came through with an excellent line. Fantasy managers should keep an eye on the Wizards and Porzingis down the stretch. They could easily fall out of the Play-In race entirely, and Porzingis got pulled early during Wednesday's loss to the Nuggets after a few quick fouls and saw just 22 minutes. Bradley Beal is dealing with a knee sprain and is day-to-day, so the team's fate is trending in the wrong direction. It's encouraging Porzingis has been so aggressive in limited minutes, though....

Wizards' Jordan Goodwin: Puts up solid fantasy line
Goodwin ended Friday's 136-124 victory over the Spurs with 17 points (6-11 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 4-5 FT), five rebounds, five assists and two steals over 31 minutes.
The Wizards put up 136 points against the Spurs for their third-highest scoring game of the season. Goodwin has shown plenty of flashes this season when he gets opportunities, and he got a big one Friday as he cleared 30 minutes for the first time since Dec. 12. He could be an intriguing fantasy pickup down the stretch if Bradley Beal (knee) and Kyle Kuzma (ankle) miss additional time.... See More ... See Less
Wizards' Delon Wright: Goes off for 24 points
Wright accumulated 24 points (9-14 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 3-3 FT), seven rebounds and three assists over 29 minutes during Friday's 136-124 victory over the Spurs.
That is one way to break out of a scoring slump. Wright failed to score in double digits in his previous six games, but he usually finds ways to keep his fantasy value afloat with his ability to rack up assists and steals. If Bradley Beal (knee) and Kyle Kuzma (ankle) continue to miss time, guys like Wright, Corey Kispert and Jordan Goodwin showed on Friday night that they can pick up some of the slack.... See More ...

Wizards' Deni Avdija: Dominates against Spurs
Avdija racked up 21 points (9-14 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 0-1 FT), 11 rebounds, six assists and one steal over 34 minutes during Friday's 136-124 win over the Spurs.
Bradley Beal (knee) and Kyle Kuzma (ankle) sitting out has opened a ton of usage for Avdija, and he's certainly making the most of his opportunity. He has two double-doubles over his last three games, averaging 17.3 points, 9.7 rebounds, 5.0 assists, 1.0 steals and 2.3 three-pointers in that span.... See More ... See Less
Wizards' Corey Kispert: Erupts for 26 points
Kispert ended Friday's 136-124 win over San Antonio with 26 points (9-14 FG, 6-9 3Pt, 2-5 FT), five rebounds, two assists and one block over 36 minutes.
Bradley Beal has a "mild" left knee sprain and is day-to-day, but with Washington sitting in 12th place in the Eastern Conference, the Wizards may proceed with caution. Kispert had the greenest of lights Friday night as he set a new career-high for points, and he's cleared 30 minutes in six of his last seven games. His fantasy trajectory is pointing straight up....

Wizards' Bradley Beal: Considered day-to-day
Wizards head coach Wes Unseld said Friday that Beal was diagnosed with a left knee sprain and is day-to-day moving forward, Chase Hughes of NBC Sports Washington reports.
Beal has already been ruled out for Friday's game against the Spurs, which will mark back-to-back absences, but given Unseld's comments, it sounds like the shooting guard could return soon. Corey Kispert, Deni Avdija, Jordan Goodwin and Johnny Davis have all seen extended minutes with Kyle Kuzma (ankle) also out. Beal's next chance to suit up is Sunday's matchup with Toronto....

Wizards' Kyle Kuzma: Remains sidelined Friday
Kuzma (ankle) won't play in Friday's game versus the Spurs.
Kuzma will miss his third straight game Friday due to a right ankle sprain. Corey Kispert and Deni Avdija have seen expanded roles in his absence. Kuzma's next chance to suit up is Sunday's matchup with Toronto.... See More ... See Less
Wizards' Bradley Beal: Still out Friday
Beal (knee) has been ruled out for Friday's game against the Spurs.
Beal was unavailable for the second half of a back-to-back set Wednesday against the Nuggets, and he'll sit out a second consecutive game two days later. Kyle Kuzma (ankle) will also remain out, so Jordan Goodwin, Corey Kispert, Johnny Davis and Deni Avdija should continue to see increased run for the Wizards.... See More ... See Less
Wizards' Jordan Goodwin: Gets double-digit minutes again
Goodwin finished Wednesday's 118-104 loss to the Nuggets with 12 points (5-8 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT), four rebounds and one assist in 17 minutes.
Following a six-game stretch earlier this month in which he sat out twice in coach's decisions and logged between four and 13 minutes over his four appearances, Goodwin looked like a fringy member of head coach Wes Unseld Jr.'s rotation. However, the situation has changed for Goodwin over the last two games, as he's taken on minutes loads in the teens while going an impressive 7-for-12 from the field between those contests. The absence of Kyle Kuzma (ankle) for the past two contests and Bradley Beal (knee) for Wednesday's game may have played a factor in Goodwin's boosted playing time, so his role will be keeping an eye on once the Wizards are back to full strength....

Wizards' Deni Avdija: Shines in move to starting lineup
Avdija registered 16 points (7-9 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 1-2 FT), eight rebounds and six assists in 32 minutes during Wednesday's 118-104 loss to Denver.
With Bradley Beal (knee) and Kyle Kuzma (ankle) out, Avdija made his first start of the month. The 22-year-old put up an impressive stat line, leading the Wizards in rebounds and assists. Over the last three games, Avdija is averaging 9.7 rebounds, and If Beal and Kuzma miss more time, Avdija could start complementing the boards production with more offense. He has played at least 30 minutes and scored 15 points or more in the last two games.... See More ... See Less
