F - WAS
Wizards rookie F Deni Avdija (ankle) will miss the remainder of the season after suffering a hairline fracture.
Avdija was having a very solid rookie season but will now be out for the remainder of the 2020-21 campaign. Look for Davis Bertans and Daniel Gafford to pick up a few extra minutes with Avdija out for the season.
Washington Wizards guard Deni Avdija recorded 12 points (4-10 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 2-2 FT), 10 rebounds, one assist and one block in 39 minutes during Monday's 103-101 loss to the Raptors.
The 20-year-old now has two double-doubles over his last three games. Avdija hasn't provided much in terms of defensive stats, but he's been averaging 10.7 points and 9.3 rebounds, and 1.0 assists over his last three games. With Bradley Beal and Rui Hachimura out for what may be an extended period, the guard is an interesting fantasy asset.
Washington Wizards SF Deni Avdija registered 11 points (4-10 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 2-5 FT), 10 rebounds, an assist, and a steal across 34 minutes in Thursday's loss against the Pistons.
On Thursday, Avdija recorded his first double-double of the season as well as his third double-digit scoring performance in three of his last six games. With Beal out, he continues to be a great play in DFS formats. He remains someone to monitor in fantasy leagues.
Washington Wizards SF Deni Avdija scored 12 points (4-6 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT) with eight rebounds and one assist in a 132-124 victory over the Pacers on Monday.
With Bradley Beal out on Monday, the rest of the Wizards roster was tasked with stepping up. Avdija took advantage as he played 32 minutes, the highest since March 13th. He also dropped his highest rebounds in over two months of play. The young gun is someone that shouldn't be on any fantasy radars.
Washington Wizards PF Deni Avdija notched 14 points (5-7 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 2-3 FT) and four rebounds across 22 minutes off the bench in Tuesday's loss against the Knicks.
vdija has scored in double digits in four of his last 10 games coming off the bench, but he has been extremely inconsistent and was coming off three straight outings where he couldn't reach the seven-point plateau, either. The rookie guard continues to flirt with good performances and minutes but has been unable to find stability in either. For now he is a monitor on the waiver wire.
