Wizards' Jeff Green: Scores 12 points in 25 minutes
Green supplied 12 points (4-5 FG, 3-3 3Pt, 1-1 FT), two rebounds, and one steal in 25 minutes during Friday's 125-118 loss to the Nets.
Green drew another start with Otto Porter (knee) missing his second straight contest. While Green was efficient offensively once again, he didn't provide much besides scoring and three-point shooting. Fantasy owners hoping for a repeat performance following Wednesday's excellent effort against the Celtics (22 points on 11 field-goal attempts, 10 rebounds, two assists, two threes, one steal, and one block across 45 minutes) were reminded that Green is rather inconsistent regardless of role....

Wizards' Bradley Beal: Posts 31 points, nine dimes in loss
Beal contributed 31 points (13-22 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 3-4 FT), nine assists, and one rebound in 39 minutes during Friday's 125-118 loss to the Nets.
Beal continued his recent stretch of sterling playmaking, dishing at least nine assists for the third time in the last nine games. He has also scored 30-plus points in four of the last 10 contests, and remains a superb option across all formats.... See More ... See Less
Wizards' Austin Rivers: Trade to Suns falls through
The three-way trade that would have sent Rivers to the Suns has been reversed, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
Although the deal was agreed upon by all teams, the Suns though they were getting Dillon Brooks from the Grizzlies instead of MarShon Brooks. This miscommunication has subsequently ended any trade talks. Thus, Rivers will remain the backup point guard in Washington.... See More ... See Less
Wizards' Trevor Ariza: Trade to Wizards reversed
The three-way trade that would have sent Ariza to the Wizards will not happen, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
In a remarkable turn of events, Ariza will stay in Phoenix because the Suns thought they were getting Dillon Brooks from Memphis instead of MarShon Brooks. The Grizzlies subsequently ended the deal. As a result, Ariza will remain with the Suns for the foreseeable future.... See More ... See Less
Wizards' Kelly Oubre: Trade falls through
Oubre will remain with the Wizards after a three-team deal failed to occur, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
There was a miscommunication regarding whether Dillon Brooks or MarShon Brooks would be dealt from the Grizzlies, and as a result, the deal is now dead. Oubre will stay with Washington in his original role.... See More ... See Less
Wizards' Trevor Ariza: Officially dealt to Wizards
Ariza was traded to the Wizards Friday in a deal that included Kelly Oubre to the Grizzlies, and Austin Rivers, Marshon Brooks, and Wayne Selden to the Suns, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
The Lakers were considered front runners for Ariza, but the Wizards ended up getting the deal done. Washington has been a mess this year, so they were clearly looking to shake things up. It is unclear if Ariza will slide into the starting lineup or come off the bench, but he figures to replace Oubre's role in the rotation.... See More ... See Less
Wizards' Austin Rivers: Likely heading to Suns
The Suns are on the verge of acquiring Rivers from the Wizards as part of a three-team deal, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

Wizards' Otto Porter: Ruled out Friday
Porter (knee) won't be available to play Friday against Brooklyn.
Porter made it out onto the court for pregame warmups, but after undergoing further treatment prior to tip, the Wizards have announced he won't play. He'll miss his second straight game with the same knee issue and his next opportunity to return will come Sunday against the Lakers. Jeff Green is slated to draw the start at small forward in Porter's absence.... See More ... See Less
Wizards' Devin Robinson: Recalled from G League
Robinson was recalled from the G League and will be available for Friday's matchup against Brooklyn, Fred Katz of The Athletic reports.
With Otto Porter (knee) a game-time call, the Wizards will opt for extra depth. Robinson has played 18 total minutes in the NBA this year, posting 10 points, six boards, two steals and an assist.... See More ... See Less
Wizards' Otto Porter: Taking part in warmups
Porter (knee) is on the court for pregame warmups but will remain a game-time decision for Friday's matchup against Brooklyn.
Porter missed Wednesday's contest due to a bruised right knee, but it appears he's trending in the right direction leading up to Friday's matchup. The team should announce his availability closer to tipoff.... See More ... See Less
Wizards' John Wall: Posts double-double in OT loss
Wall registered 34 points (14-26 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 5-8 FT), six rebounds, 13 assists, two steals, and one block in 41 minutes Wednesday as the Wizards came up short against the Celtics.
Wall took a spill in the fourth quarter that likely would have had any regular joe in the hospital, but he returned and went head-to-head with Kyrie Irving in the Celtics, nearly willing the Wizards to a win. So far in the 2018-19 season Wall has shown a commitment to taking more shots at the rim and from deep, while sacrificing some of the mid-range shots. His efficiency from deep leaves plenty to be desired, Wall can attack the rim like few other guards in the NBA and has proven to be one of the better distributors this league has to offer. The veteran point guard is a known commodity in fantasy hoops at this point.... See More ... See Less
Wizards' Jeff Green: Starting Wednesday
Green will start Wednesday's game against the Celtics.
Green will get the start Wednesday in place of Otto Porter (knee), and figures to see a bump in minutes as long as Porter remains out. Across 25 games this year, Green is averaging 10.0 points, 4.6 rebounds and 1.2 assists in 23.9 minutes.... See More ... See Less
Wizards' Otto Porter: Ruled out Wednesday
Porter (knee) has been ruled out for Wednesday's game against the Celtics.
Porter, who sustained a right knee bruise in Monday's game against the Pacers, won't play Wednesday. It doesn't look like Porter will be out too long, with his next opportunity to play coming Friday against the Nets, but until he's back, Kelly Oubre and Jeff Green could see increased run....

Wizards' Otto Porter: Game-time call vs. Celtics
Porter (knee) is a game-time decision for Wednesday's game against the Celtics, Candace Buckner of The Washington Post reports.
Porter suffered a bruised right knee in Monday's outing against the Pacers and was initially listed as questionable for Wednesday's contest. Look for Porter to test out the ankle one last time in pregame warmups before a decision on his status against Boston is made.... See More ... See Less
