Washington Wizards

Eastern Southeast

Fantasy Impact: On the other hand, this means Wagner will have additional time to get ready for the Wizards training camp. With multiple front-court players on the roster, such as Thomas Bryant and Davis Bertans, he will have to compete for playing time.

Fantasy Impact: Parker agreed to the deal after his team option was declined by Washington last month. The former No. 2 overall pick averaged 15.0 points and 7.2 rebounds in 25 games for the Wizards last season and should be a quality bench option for Atlanta.

Fantasy Impact: Green, 32, will slot into a backup role at both forward spots, and could see minutes towards the mid-20s. He averaged 12.3 points, 4.0 rebounds, and 1.8 assists in 77 games for the Wizards last season.

Tomas Satoransky was acquired by the Chicago Bulls from the Wizards on Monday as part of a sign-and-trade deal. Satoransky will sign a three-year, $30 million contract. (Source: Adrian Wojnarowski on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Satoransky stepped in as the starting point guard for the Wizards once John Wall was ruled out for the season. The Bulls have Colby White and Kris Dunn as the top options at point guard, Satoransky would be project to be one of the team's top reserves at the point and wing. In return for Satoransky, who was a restricted free agent, the Wizards will have protections removed on the 2023 second-round pick they previously acquired from Chicago. Washington will also receive the better of Memphis and Chicago's 2020 second-round pick along with the right to swap the Lakers' 2022 second-round pick with the better of Chicago and Detroit's 2022 second-round selections. Satoransky averaged 8.9 points, 3.5 rebounds, 5.0 assists, and 1.0 steal in 80 games for the Wizards last season.

Bobby Portis has agreed to sign with the Knicks after career highs of 14.2 points and 8.1 rebounds in 50 games last season. The contract goes for two years with an AAV of $15.5M. (Source: Adrian Wojnarowski on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: While this isn't a big name signing that the Knicks front office and fans were anticipating, Portis still provides valuable depth as a big man who can stretch the floor. In fact, the 6'11" PF saw his three-point percentage jump from 37.5% to 40.3% after his midseason trade from the Bulls to the Wizards. His numbers are likely to regress, but Portis can still mitigate the losses of DeAndre Jordan and Mario Hezonja for a rebuilding Knicks team.

John Wall (Achilles) is progressing well in his recovery from a ruptured left Achilles tendon, Ryan Homler of NBC Sports Washington reports. "I feel great, man," Wall said at Monday night's NBA Awards. "I'm doing a great job with my body, taking care of that." (Source: Ryan Homler of NBC Sports Washington)

Fantasy Impact: Wall still faces a long road to recovery, and is expected to miss much of the 2019-2020 season. He missed 50 games last season due to his achilles injury, and cautioned that he won't attempt to come back before his body is fully ready. Wall averaged 20.7 points, 3.6 rebounds, 8.7 assists, 1.5 steals, and 0.9 blocks in 32 games for the Wizards last season.

Troy Brown Jr. went 2-for-8 shooting with a triple for five points to go with four rebounds and two assists in 19 minutes against the Boston Celtics on Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact: The Wizards' top rookie had his worst game in a while on Tuesday, though that can be easily attributed to starters playing minimal minutes. Brown finishes the season averaging 4.8 points, 2.8 rebounds and 1.5 assists per game.

Bradley Beal had 19 points, four rebound, and two assists in 22 minutes on Wednesday. He shot 9-of-18 from the field with a three-pointer during the 115-114 loss to the Bulls.

Fantasy Impact: Beal and the Wizards are just playing out the season as they will be out of the playoffs this year. Beal could play limited minutes in the Wizards last three games in what has been a sensational season for the guard out of Florida.

Trevor Ariza (groin) is out on Wednesday and will likely miss the rest of the season. (Source: Fred Katz on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: The groin injury isn't a serious one but with just three games left, there's really no point for the veteran to push it. Jordan McRae and Troy Brown will see added opportunities.

Wesley Johnson played six minutes against the Denver Nuggets, grabbing a rebound and recording a block but failing to score any points.

Fantasy Impact: It was Johnson's fifth game this month and his first since March 21st. It was also Johnson's third zero point outing of the month.

Chasson Randle scored 10 points (4-for-4 from the field, 2-for-2 from distance) with three rebounds, two assists, one steal, and one turnover in 16 minutes during Saturday's loss to the Pacers.

Fantasy Impact: Randle has shown that he can be efficient when given the minutes. The problem is he simply does not see enough minutes to justify starting him in fantasy lineups. He would need an injury to starter Tomas Satoransky to become a factor in the future.
