Garrison Matthews will start in place of Bradley Beal on Friday for Wizards

Garrison Matthews will start in place of a resting Bradley Beal as the Wizards take on the Knicks in Washington on Friday night.

Fantasy Impact

Matthews will see his first start of the year which paints him as an under-the-radar DFS sleeper. His season high for points was 22 when he saw 23 minutes of work on January 9th. As he's set for a healthy workload tonight, he could put multiple managers in the green this evening. Also, consider the Knicks allow a league-best 103.9 points on defense this season.

Garrison Matthews drops 15 in loss

Wizards SG Garrison Matthews scored 15 points (5-11 FG, 2-3 FT) while adding in four rebounds, one assist, and two steals in Wednesday's 124-106 loss to the Pelicans.

Fantasy Impact

With Russell Westbrook out, Matthews continues to show a slight scoring touch. Since returning from league protocols the young guard is averaging 10.7 points, 3.3 rebounds, and 2.0 steals across 28.7 minutes per game. Matthews is someone to monitor in deeper fantasy leagues.

Garrison Mathews drops team-high 22 points in Saturday's loss

Garrison Mathews totaled 22 points (6-12 FG, 4-7 3Pt, 6-7 FT), two rebounds, two steals, and an assist across 23 minutes in the Wizards’ 128-124 loss to the Heat on Saturday.

Fantasy Impact

After scoring just seven points across 20 minutes prior to Saturday's contest, Mathews' number was called with multiple absences in the Wizards' rotation. The team went 12 deep and played a competitive game with the Heat thanks to guys like Mathews stepping up. In games where Russell Westbrook and Bradley Beal both play, Mathews is likely to revert back to a minimal role. Saturday's outburst will likely be more of an outlier rather than the new norm.

Garrison Matthews not in Orlando due to personal reasons

Garrison Matthews did not travel with the Wizards to Orlando due to personal reasons. He does not have coronavirus; however, it is unclear whether he will rejoin the team at a later date or miss the remaining eight games of the regular season.

Fantasy Impact

With Bradley Beal (shoulder) and Davis Bertans (personal) not with the Wizards for the restart, the rookie out of Lipscomb is due to see increased minutes in the rotation. This season he has played 18 games and has averaged 12.6 minutes of playing time, 5.4 points, 1.3 rebounds, .6 assists, and .4 steals. Mathews has a great opportunity to get valuable minutes, should he play he could be a viable source of fantasy production for those playing in a deep-league format.

Garrison Mathews leaves Monday's game early with right ankle injury

Rookie shooting guard Garrison Mathews left the Wizards' Monday night game against Boston early with an apparent sprained right ankle and did not return. According to Fred Katz of The Athletic, x-rays on Mathews' right ankle came back negative, however, he is expected to miss some time.

Fantasy Impact

The injury is an unfortunate one for both the depth-needy Wizards and for Mathews himself. Mathews has been playing very well as of late, scoring in double-digits in three of the previous four games prior to Monday night's contest. More information should be forthcoming, however, Mathews can be expected to miss at least a few weeks. The Wizards will undoubtedly not have Mathews available when they travel to Orlando to face the Magic on Wednesday.
