  • Wizards' Dwight Howard: Exercises 2019-20 option

    Howard (back) informed the Wizards on Friday that he would exercise his $5.6 million player option for 2019-20, Zach Lowe of ESPN.com reports.

    Limited to just nine appearances in his first season in Washington due to a back injury that ultimately required surgery, Howard wasn't likely to find any team willing to pay him $5.6 million had he explored free agency. He thus determined it was in his best interest to exercise his option, ensuring that he'll be back with the Wizards for another season. Though Washington envisioned Howard serving as a stopgap starter at center heading into last season, it's unclear if the 33-year-old will get the opportunity to even compete for a top-unit role if he returns to training camp at full health. Thomas Bryant flashed an intriguing skill set at center during his second NBA season, and the Wizards might not be willing to reduce his playing time in 2019-20 to accommodate Howard. Washington may also bolster its frontcourt through free agency, trade or the draft, which would further reduce Howard's chances of re-emerging as an impact player.

  • Wizards' Devin Robinson: Arrested, let go by Washington

    Robinson was arrested Saturday after being involved in a fight in Washington, Tyler Byrum of NBC Sports Washington reports. The Wizards announced following Robinson's arrest that the forward wouldn't be tendered a qualifying offer for the 2019-20 season, making him a free agent.

    Robinson was with the Wizards on a two-way deal this season, playing seven games -- including the final three contests of 2018-19 -- with the parent club. Washington may not have had much interest in bringing Robinson back this offseason even if he hadn't been arrested.

  • Wizards' John Wall: Unsure of status for 2019-20

    Wall (Achilles) admitted Tuesday that he's not entirely sure whether he'll be able to play at any point in the 2019-20 season, the Associated Press reports. "I have no idea just yet. That's my goal...That's my mindset, where I'm pushing toward,'' he said. "But whenever the doctors clear me and get to that point, then I will know.''

    Wall appeared in 32 games before undergoing season-ending surgery on his left heel in January. While recovering from that procedure, he ruptured his Achilles' tendon on the same foot in February when he fell at his home, an incident that required another surgery. Wall received a loose 12-month timeline for his recovery following the second surgery, which would essentially rule him out through at least the All-Star break next season. Even if Wall's rehab proceeds without any notable setbacks, the Wizards may prefer to have the star point guard turn his attention to getting fully healthy in advance of the 2020-21 campaign rather than playing only a handful of late-season games next spring.

  • Wizards' Ian Mahinmi: Closes season with double-double

    Mahinmi registered 11 points (4-13 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 1-1 FT), 12 rebounds, an assist, a steal and a block over 25 minutes Tuesday against Boston.

    Mahinmi didn't quite have his shot working from the field, but he did knock home two of his three attempts from downtown and secured his first double-double of the year in the regular season finale. He failed to factor into Washington's rotation on a consistent basis during the 2018-2019 campaign and averaged 3.9 points along with 3.5 boards over 33 matchups.

  • Wizards' Thomas Bryant: Has solid shooting night

    Bryant finished with 14 points (6-7 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 1-1 FT), six rebounds and two assists over 17 minutes Tuesday against the Celtics.

    Bryant managed to close out the season on a positive note, missing just one of seven shots from the field in a 116-110 loss for the Wizards. He impressed down the home stretch at the center position and has certainly made a strong argument for the starting slot to begin the 2019-2020 campaign. Bryant averaged 15.6 points, 10.2 boards, 1.8 assists and 1.3 blocks during the final 10 matchups of this season.

  • Wizards' Bradley Beal: Produces despite minutes reduction

    Beal tallied 16 points (6-11 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT), five rebounds and four assists over 17 minutes Tuesday against the Celtics.

    It was reported before the game that Beal wouldn't see "a lot" of minutes in the season finale, but he still managed to post a solid final line. The All-Star shooting guard averaged 25.7 points, 5.5 assists and 5.0 rebounds over 81 matchups during the 2018-2019 campaign, although the season will end in disappointment for the Wizards, who were eliminated from playoff contention weeks before the finale.

  • Wizards' Tomas Satoransky: Finishes season strong

    Satoransky scored 19 points (6-8 FG, 3-3 3Pt, 4-6 FT) and registered four rebounds along with five assists over 28 minutes Tuesday against Boston.

    Satoransky had his shot working in the season finale, knocking down all three of his attempts from downtown while also contributing in other categories, such as rebounds and assists. His season will come to an end after averaging 8.7 points, 5.0 assists and 3.5 boards over 79 games.

  • Wizards' Troy Brown: Exits Tuesday's game

    Brown exited Tuesday's game against the Celtics due to a hamstring injury. He will not return.

    This injury marks the end of Brown's season, as Tuesday is the Wizards' final game. Prior to this contest, the rookie had started the past nine games, averaging 11.0 points, 4.7 rebounds and 2.2 assists in 31.6 minutes.

  • Wizards' Jordan McRae: Out Tuesday

    McRae (Achilles) has been ruled out Tuesday against Boston.

    Unsurprisingly, McRae will be held out of the final contest of the season for the Wizards due to an Achilles injury. He'll be back with the team for the 2019-2020 campaign after signing an extension earlier in the day.

  • Wizards' Bradley Beal: To see reduced workload again

    Coach Scott Brooks noted he's not going to play Beal "a lot" of minutes Tuesday against the Celtics, Candace Buckner of The Washington Post reports.

    Beal, in what marks the Wizards' final game of the season, will be on the court for a limited amount of time. The move doesn't come as a surprise considering he's seen fewer than 24 minutes in two of the past three games.
