C - WAS - OUT
Wizards center Thomas Bryant has been diagnosed with a torn ACL in his left knee and will miss the remainder of the season.
Bryant suffered the injury within the first few minutes of Saturday's loss to the Heat and was immediately ruled out for the remainder of the contest. This is tough news as Bryant was excelling in his role as a full-time starter for the Wizards, averaging 14.3 points on 64 percent shooting from the field. It's tough to say who will replace him in the starting lineup but Robin Lopez appears in line to receive the nod with Moritz Wagner seeing an increased role as well. Bryant will begin rehab with hopes of returning in full health for the 2021-2022 season.
Wizards C Thomas Bryant was helped to the locker room in the first quarter of Saturday's matchup against the Heat with what appears to be a leg injury.
Bryant's leg bent inward, and he appeared to be in a lot of pain. He was helped to the locker room and should be considered questionable to return. Robin Lopez will fill in at center with Bryant out of the lineup.
Thomas Bryant totaled 11 points (4-6 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 3-3 FT), six rebounds, and an assist across 34 minutes in the Wizards’ 141-136 loss to the 76ers on Wednesday.
Bryant had a disappointing game in the scoring department, but Bradley Beal rolled for 60 points, so there's no cause for alarm here. Bryant was a little light in the rebounding category, which was a bit more alarming, considering the number of shots attempted and the final score. The big man will look to get back on track against Boston on Friday.

Bryant logged his best game of the season, piling up a big double-double in the narrow victory. With just seconds remaining on the clock, Bryant caught a pass from Bradley Beal in the lane and slammed home the go-ahead dunk to put the Wizards up by a point - a lead which they would not relinquish.

Bryant had a solid day, and it looked like he was headed for a huge performance but was limited to just 22 minutes as Washington went up big in the 21-point victory. Bryant should enjoy more productive outings in competitive contests.
