Washington Wizards

Eastern Southeast


Washington Wizards C Robin Lopez scored 15 points (7-10 FG, 1-1 FT) while adding in five rebounds, and three assists during Saturday's win over the Pistons.

Fantasy Impact: For the first time in six games, Lopez logged over 20 minutes of work. During his 22 minutes, he looked sharp adding 15/5/3 in a win. Before entering April, Lopez was the teams starting center but has since been downgraded to third-string behind Daniel Gafford and Alex Len. The log jammed center rotation makes it hard to roster any of the three players in fantasy formats.

Washington Wizards PG Ish Smith scored 16 points (6-8 FG, 2-4 FT) while adding in three rebounds, and five assists during Saturday's win over the Pistons.

Fantasy Impact: For the first time nearly all season, the veteran guard looked like a real fantasy asset. Smith logged 24 points scoring 16 points and five assists along the way. The veteran guard continues to play upwards of 20 minutes a night as the backup point guard. If he continues to play decent minutes with the backup duties he is worth a stash in deeper fantasy leagues due to his scoring and assist numbers.

Washington Wizards SG Bradley scored 37 points (13-22 FG, 7-8 FT) while adding in three rebounds, and three assists during Saturday's win over the Pistons.

Fantasy Impact: Just another day at the office for Beal as he racked up another 30 points in a blowout win over the Pistons on Saturday. Since his return from injury, the veteran guard has been electric scoring the basketball. Beal has logged 30 or more points in every game since his return and continues to lead the NBA in scoring. Outside of scoring Beal doesn't offer much in terms of assists or rebounds but still is a top-25 fantasy player.

Washington Wizards PG Russell Westbrook scored 15 points (7-17 FG, 1-3 FT) while adding in 14 rebounds, and 11 assists during Saturday's win over the Pistons.

Fantasy Impact: The triple-double streaks continue for Westbrook, he logged his 7th triple-double in his last eight games. The veteran guard continues to produce high usage and high numbers while limiting turnovers to just two on Saturday.

Washington Wizards PF Rui Hachimura scored six points (3-13 FG, 0-2 FT, 0-5 3P) while adding in three rebounds, and three assists during Friday’s win over the Pelicans.

Fantasy Impact: Hachimura struggled from the field on Friday scoring just six points on 3-13 shooting. The young forward doesn’t offer much value outside of scoring and three point numbers. With Bradley Beal back in the rotation full time, Hachimura is droppable in most fantasy formats.

Washington Wizards PF Daniel Gafford had 18 points (7-11 FG, 4-6 FT), seven rebounds and four blocks in Friday's win over the Pelicans.

Fantasy Impact: Gafford for the first time since joining the Wizards played more minutes than starter Alex Len. The ex-Bull had easily his best game since coming over from Chicago, and he'll be a name to monitor -- especially in deeper leagues -- over the next few games.

Davis Bertans (personal reasons) will not play on Friday versus New Orleans.

Fantasy Impact: Bertans' absence should put more emphasis on Rui Hachimura on Friday. Additionally, Chase Hutchison should receive a boost versus the Pelicans and potentially longer if Bertans' absence is extended.

Washington Wizards C Alex Len scored eight points (3-6 FG, 2-4 FT) while adding in 10 rebounds, and one assist during Wednesday's win over the Kings.

Fantasy Impact: Len was two points shy of recording a double-double on Wednesday. He continues to be a frustrating player as he logged just 17 minutes in a crowded frontcourt. He continues to start but he hasn't played over 20 minutes since April 5th. The veteran center is droppable in all fantasy formats.

Washington Wizards guard Deni Avdija recorded 12 points (4-10 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 2-2 FT), 10 rebounds, one assist and one block in 39 minutes during Monday's 103-101 loss to the Raptors.

Fantasy Impact: The 20-year-old now has two double-doubles over his last three games. Avdija hasn't provided much in terms of defensive stats, but he's been averaging 10.7 points and 9.3 rebounds, and 1.0 assists over his last three games. With Bradley Beal and Rui Hachimura out for what may be an extended period, the guard is an interesting fantasy asset.

Fantasy Impact: With the announcement that Bradley Beal (hip) will be out Monday, head coach Scott Brooks has listed Jerome Robinson as the starting SG. Robinson is averaging 17.1 minutes, 4.9 points, 2.4 rebounds, and 1.4 assists per game this season.

Raul Neto scored 12 points (5-12 FG, 2-4 3PT) to go along with two rebounds and one assist in the Wizards win Saturday over Detroit.

Fantasy Impact: Bradley Beal left the game early with a hip injury, so we will have to wait for further word on his timetable. If he misses any extended time, Neto could be one of the bigger beneficiaries for Washington.

Washington Wizards C Mortiz Wagner scored 11 points (3-4 FG) while adding in one rebound, three assists, and a steal during Tuesday's blowout loss to the Knicks.

Fantasy Impact: For the first time in over five games, the Wizards gave Wagner some minutes off the bench. The big man was overall productive playing 23 minutes of work. This is likely a one-off performance as he still doesn't offer much fantasy value.

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.

Washington Wizards guard Troy Brown Jr. scored two points (0/6 FG, 2/2 FT, 0/5 3P) while adding in five rebounds and three assists during Sunday's blowout loss to the Hornets.

Fantasy Impact: Brown has shown to have a solid role with the Wizards but provides no real fantasy value. He shouldn't be on any fantasy managers radar unless and injury insues to one of Russell Westbrook or Bradley Beal.
