Wizards' Markieff Morris: Questionable to return
Morris exited Sunday's game against the Lakers with a neck strain, and his return is questionable, Chase Hughes of NBC Sports Washington reports.
Morris went to the locker room earlier in the contest, and he's since been diagnosed with a neck strain. He logged 11 minutes and scored four points while snagging four rebounds prior to departing. Sam Dekker could see more run if Morris is unable to come back.... See More ... See Less
Wizards' Otto Porter: Ruled out Sunday
Porter (knee) has been ruled out of Sunday's game against the Lakers, Ben Standig of NBC Sports Washington reports.
Porter will miss his third consecutive game with a right knee bruise, and Jeff Green will continue to start in his place. Porter came into this game a game-time call, so he seems to be trending in the right direction. It's also worth noting that Porter will undergo an MRI on Monday, so Washington is evidently concerned about a more significant injury, per Candace Buckner of The Washington Post. His next opportunity to play will be Tuesday against Atlanta, although his status will likely be determined by the results of the MRI.... See More ... See Less
Wizards' Okaro White: Recalled from Capital City
White was recalled from the G League on Sunday.
White, along with Troy Brown, will join the Wizards for Sunday's contest while the Trevor Ariza trade is still being finalized, as it has left Washington light on wing depth. White has only appeared in one game this season, but given the current status of Washington's roster, he could have a chance at seeing the floor Sunday.... See More ... See Less
Wizards' Troy Brown: Recalled from G League
Brown was recalled from the Capital City Go Go of the G League on Sunday.
With the trade that is sending Kelly Oubre to Phoenix and bringing Trevor Ariza to Washington not yet finalized, the Wizards are fairly light on wing depth. Brown should have an opportunity to see some quality minutes Sunday night against the Lakers.... See More ... See Less
Wizards' Devin Robinson: Assigned to G League
Robinson was assigned to the G League on Saturday.
Robinson hasn't played for the Wizards since Nov. 30, and will probably continue bouncing back and forth between the NBA and the G League. He will likely only see minutes if the Wizards deal with significant injuries.... See More ... See Less
Wizards' Otto Porter: Will be game-time call
Porter (knee) will be a game-time decision for Sunday's matchup against the Lakers, Candace Buckner of The Washington Post reports.
A right knee bruise has forced Porter to miss the past two games, and is putting his status for Sunday in jeopardy. If he ends up missing the contest, Jeff Green is a strong candidate to draw another start.... See More ... See Less
Wizards' Trevor Ariza: Officially dealt to Washington
Ariza has officially been traded to the Wizards in exchange for Kelly Oubre and Austin Rivers, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.
The two teams -- plus the Grizzlies -- had reportedly reached a deal centered around Ariza late Friday night, but it ultimately fell through due to some confusion as to which player(s) Memphis would be including. Washington and Phoenix decided to move on without the Grizzlies and execute a two-team deal that will still send Ariza to the Wizards, while the Suns bring back a pair of younger players. Ariza has struggled through the first two months of the season in Phoenix, averaging 9.9 points, 5.6 rebounds and 3.3 assists per game while sooting just 37.9 percent from three. The Wizards, for whom Ariza played from 2012-14, hope a change of scenery will be all the 33-year-old needs, but it's somewhat of a risky deal for Washington, which relinquished one of its better young assets in Oubre, who is set to hit restricted free agency this summer....

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.
The deal would send Austin Rivers plus two Grizzlies role players to the Suns, Trevor Ariza to the Wizards, and Kelly Oubre to the Grizzlies. Confirmation of the deal figures to come shortly.... See More ... See Less
Wizards' Tomas Satoransky: Returns to action
Satoransky has returned to Washington's bench, Candace Buckner of The Washington Post reports.
After making a quick trip to the locker room, Satoransky appears ready to re-enter the contest.... See More ... See Less
