Washington Wizards F Davis Bertans tells ESPN that he will not join his teammates in Orlando when the 2019-20 NBA season resumes at the end of July.
Bertans was having an incredible season before it was postponed due to COVID-19. He was averaging a career high 16 points per game, while shooting 42 percent from deep. Bertans is set to become a free agent after this season comes to a close and the Wizards view him as a top-priority to re-sign this offseason. Bertans will continue to train and workout with the team, participating in all of the pre-Orlando training, and Washington fully supports his decision to not play the remainder of the season at Disney World. Bertans is forfeiting approximately $600K by not playing in Orlando, but he could be well on his way to commanding a very hefty contract from the Wizards or another team this offseason.
Davis Bertans produced 21 points(8-16 FG, 4-12 3PT, 1-2 FG), four rebounds, three assists, a steal and a block across 29 minutes in the Wizards' 125-104 loss to the Trail Blazers on Wednesday.
Bertans continued his hot start to March on Wednesday, producing his third straight 18+ point performance and notched his highest assist count since February 7th. Next up for Bertans is a soft matchup against the Atlanta Hawks on March 6th and has a good chance at keeping his hot streak going.
Davis Bertans produced 29 points(9-14 FG, 8-10 3PT, 3-3 FT), four rebounds and a block across 30 minutes in the Wizards' 124-110 win over the Warriors on Sunday.
Bertans bounced back in a big way on Sunday and the Warriors had no answers. The 27-year old put together his best outing since December 10th, sinking in eight of his 10 three-point attempts for 29 points. Bertans will look to keep it going against the Sacramento Kings on March 3rd.
Davis Bertans (knee) tallied 14 points (5-13 FG, 4-11 3PT), three rebounds, two assists and one steal across 30 minutes in Wednesday's 110-106 win over the Nets.
Bertans missed Monday's loss due to a knee injury, but was able to suit up and pour in 14 points in Wednesday's win over the Nets. He has now buried at least two triples and scored double figures in nine consecutive games. Bertans is worth adding in standard leagues, especially for fantasy owners who need help in threes. The Wizards next schedule game is Friday, away against the Jazz.
