Rui Hachimura scored 20 points (9-19 FG, 1-3 3PT, 1-1 FT), grabbed three rebounds, and recorded one steal in 28 minutes of play on Monday.
Over his last 10 games, Rui is averaging 16.3 points per game, nearly three full points than his season average of 13.9 points per game. Rui will look to continue his increased scoring as the Wizards take on the Hawks on Wednesday.
Rui Hachimura is expected to return to the court on Saturday against Indiana after battling an illness.
Hachimura will be returning after missing the Wizards previous two games. Davis Bertans will likely see a little less playing time as a result.
Washington Wizards PF Rui Hachimura (illness) has been ruled out Wednesday vs the Bucks.
Hachimura has been ruled out Wednesday due to a non-COVID illness. Anthony Gill seems likely to draw another spot start in his absence with coach Brooks preferring to keep Davis Bertans in a reserve role together with Ish Smith. Bertans played 34.2 minutes off the bench in the last game Hachimura missed back on April 25.
Washington Wizards Rui Hachimura ended with 27 points (12-19 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 2-2 FT), seven rebounds, two assists, and one block in 31 minutes during Monday's 154-141 victory over Indiana.
Hachimura thrived in a win over the Pacers on Monday. He was efficient in scoring the basketball as he took 19 shots and nailed 12 of them for 27 points. The young forward also pulled down seven rebounds in the process. His role appears locked in at this point and so GMs should feel comfortable trotting him out there on a nightly basis as long as points are what you are looking for.
Rui Hachimura scored 11 points (3-8 FG, 1-1 3PT, 4-4 FT) to go along with five rebounds, one assist and one steal in the Wizards win Friday over Cleveland.
It was the third consecutive game Hachimura has scored in double figures. He did see a little less playing time as Washington went deep into their bench.
