Washington Wizards Deni Avdija recorded 2 points (1-1 FG) while adding in three rebounds in just 11 minutes of work during Saturday's win.
The first-year forward saw his lowest minutes total in over 20 games this season. Avdija doesn't offer much fantasy value outstand of DFS formats.
Washington Wizards forward Deni Avdija scored four points (2-9 FG, 0/2 FT, 0/5 3P) while adding in 10 rebounds and one assist during Monday's 105-101 win over the Chicago Bulls.
The rookie forward struggled to find his shot off the bench on Monday. Over his past three games, he has failed to score double-digit points against some of the league's worst teams. The good note for Avdija is that he continues to see 22.7 minutes per game.
Deni Avdija registered 13 points (5-9 FG, 3-5 3PT), four rebounds and one steal across 33 minutes in Wednesday's 103-100 win over the Heat.
Avdija has now scored double figures in two of his last three games. He’s been on fire from downtown recently, shooting 50% (5-for-10) during that span. Avdija is worth rostering in most league formats, averaging 7.5 points, 4.1 rebounds, 1.9 assists, 0.9 steals and 1.5 triples across 23.3 minutes in 2020-21. The Wizards next scheduled game is Friday, away against the Heat.
Wizards rookie F Deni Avdija (health & safety protocols) will start at small forward Sunday night vs. the Nets but will be on a minutes restriction according to head coach Scott Brooks.
Avdija hasn’t played since January 11, so it makes sense to have the rookie on a minutes restriction. Look for Avdija to see no more than 20-25 minutes even as a starter on Sunday against the Nets.
Wizards rookie F Deni Avdija (health and safety protocols) is likely to make his return on Friday vs. Atlanta.
Avdija has missed the last two weeks since entering into the league’s health and safety protocols, but it sounds like he’ll be ready to roll Friday night against the Hawks. He could be on a minutes restriction in his first game back, but that is unknown at the moment.
