Washington Wizards

Eastern Southeast

SG Bradley Beal views the trade rumors as a “sign of respect.” (Source: Jackie MacMullan of ESPN)

Fantasy Impact: It’s not the first time I’ve heard this kind of talk,” Beal said. It’s interesting. To me, I look at it as a sign of respect, that I’ve been doing good things and guys want to play with me. That’s an unbelievable feeling. When you hear that Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant want you, that’s amazing.” With rumors swirling around that the Wizards could move Beal this off-season, his agent Mark Bartelstein does not expect him to be dealt. Beal is under contract until 2022-2023 and the team is looking to retain their star player. The 26-year-old is having another fantastic season for the Wizards, averaging 30.5 points, 4.2 rebounds, 6.1 assists, 1.2 steals and 3.0 triples across 57 games.

Fantasy Impact: Wall hasn’t played since the 2018-19 season, when he suffered a season-ending achilles tear 32 games into the season. With a recovery timeline set at 12 months, Wall has missed the entirety of the 2019-20 season. In the past three years, Wall has only played in 73 games. He may have been forgotten by the fantasy community, but he’s still one of the best true point guards in the NBA when healthy. Even though he deems himself fully healthy, Wall was quick to squash any rumors that he could return to the court this season when the NBA resumes.

In a recent Q&A with subscribers of The Athletic, Wizards G/F Troy Brown Jr. said he wants to work on his 3-point shooting, lateral quickness, and his ability to guard small point guards. (Source: The Athletic)

Fantasy Impact: The second-year combo G/F made significant strides in his sophomore campaign with the Wizards, averaging 9.7 points, 5.3 rebounds, 2.3 assists, and 1.2 steals in 25 minutes per game. Listed at 6’6”, Brown Jr. is naturally more of a shooting guard or small forward, but says that he wants to expand his defensive ability to enable him to keep up with defending the other team’s smaller point guard. Wizards point guard John Wall has been on the shelf since 2018, and maybe Brown Jr. sees his improvements in that aspect of his game as an opportunity to garner more minutes. Look for him to continue to improve his game year-over-year, and eventually become a player that can provide consistent fantasy value.

Moritz Wagner produced 10 points(3-4 FG, 0-0 3PT, 4-4 FT), three rebounds and an assist across 21 minutes in the Wizards' 122-115 win over the Knicks on Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact: Wagner crossed the 20 minute threshold for the first time since February 24th, but wasn't able to do much more than usual, taking just four field goal attempts and grabbing just three rebounds. Wagner isn't worth fantasy consideration right now, but his situation is worth monitoring as the Wizards should be motivated to give Wagner a chance as the season winds down.

Thomas Bryant scored 14 points (5-9 FG, 1-2 3PT, 3-4 FT), with 10 boards, two assists, and one steal in 24 minutes in 122-115 win over the Knicks.

Fantasy Impact: Bryant’s last double-double came over a month ago on February 1 against Brooklyn. Since then, his minutes have really been trending downward, so it was a nice treat to see him out there for 24 minutes tonight. He’s a very efficient and productive player per minute, so even if he sees just 20 minutes per game, he’s probably still putting up strong enough lines to be rostered in most leagues.

Shabazz Napier scored 21 points (6-12 FG, 3-7 3PT, 6-6 FT), with two rebounds, six assists, three steals, and four turnovers in 38 minutes in Tuesday night’s 122-115 win over New York.

Fantasy Impact: That’s consecutive games that Napier has gone over 20 points and six assists in over 38 minutes. As long as Ish Smith (hamstring) remains out, Napier will continue to play heavy minutes as the only true point guard on a team that likes to play at a fast pace. He’s an easy waiver-wire target in all leagues right now.

Rui Hachimura scored zero points (0-8 FG, 0-2 3PT), six rebounds, three assists and one steal across 40 minutes in Sunday's 100-89 loss to Miami.

Fantasy Impact: Hachimura played 40 minutes and wwas completely shut out in Sunday's loss to the Heat. He has really struggled the last two contests, averaging 1.5 points, 7.0 rebounds, 2.5 assists, 1.0 steal and 1.0 triples during that stretch. Despite his inconsistencies, Hachimura should be owned in all standard leagues. The Wizards next scheduled game is Tuesday, home against the Knicks.

Ish Smith (hamstring) will miss "some time" and will re-evaluated in one week, said Wizards Head Coach Scott Brooks. (Source: Fred Katz on Twitter )

Fantasy Impact: Smith has missed the last two contests due to a left hamstring issue. He will be re-evaluated in one week. Look for Shabazz Napier to fill in at point guard and see an expanded role with Smith sidelined.

Isaac Bonga produced seven points(2-2 FG, 0-0 3PT, 3-3 FT) and a block across 12 minutes in the Wizards' 118-112 win over the Hawks on Friday.

Fantasy Impact: While Bonga saw just 12 minutes on Friday, his lowest since February 2nd, he was still able to have a positive outing, going perfect in both field goals and free throws. It's an incredibly small victory but one that could give Bonga a boost in the future.

Category: Game Recaps

Jerome Robinson registered five points (2-9 FG, 1-3 3PT) four rebounds, one assist and one block across 25 minutes in Wednesday's 125-104 loss to Portland.

Fantasy Impact: Robinson drew the start Wednesday replacing Isaac Bonga in the starting lineup. He has logged at least 20 minutes in his last five games, but has failed to capitalize on his opportunity. Robinson is averaging 7.0 points, 3.2 rebounds, 1.2 assists, 0.8 steals and 1.0 triples during that span. The 23-year is merely a deep-league flyer for now. The Wizards next scheduled game is Friday, home against the Hawks.

Davis Bertans produced 21 points(8-16 FG, 4-12 3PT, 1-2 FG), four rebounds, three assists, a steal and a block across 29 minutes in the Wizards' 125-104 loss to the Trail Blazers on Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact: Bertans continued his hot start to March on Wednesday, producing his third straight 18+ point performance and notched his highest assist count since February 7th. Next up for Bertans is a soft matchup against the Atlanta Hawks on March 6th and has a good chance at keeping his hot streak going.

Anzejs Pasecniks produced three points(1-1 FG, 0-0 3PT, 1-2 FT) and a rebound across 11 minutes in the Wizards' 124-110 win over the Warriors on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Pasecniks saw game action for the first time in over a month, but was unable to do much with it, scoring his only field goal while producing just one rebound. The rookie showed double-double potential earlier in the season as an injury fill it but remains blocked on the depth chart.

Ian Mahinmi produced four points(2-4 FG, 0-0 3PT, 0-1 FT), three rebounds, two steals and an assist across 20 minutes in the Wizards' 110-106 win over the Nets on Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact: Mahinmi drew a start once again with Thomas Bryant still working back from a nagging foot injury but wasn't able to do much of it, taking just four shots across his 20 minutes on the court. The veteran holds close to no value in season-long leagues but could occasionally be an alright punt play in DFS.

Fantasy Impact: Thomas, who was recently acquired by the Clipper via trade, will be released by the team. He is averaging 12.2 points, 1.7 rebounds, 3.7 assists and 2.0 triples across 40 games this season. The 31-year old guard will look to latch onto another team. Fantasy owners can release the veteran guard in standard league formats.

Jordan McRae traded to Denver

Fantasy Impact: McRae will join a shooting guard rotation that includes Gary Harris and Torrey Craig. He will most likely come off the bench and give the Nuggets depth at guard. With the move to Denver, McRae is more of a deep-league option and should not be owned in standard leagues. He is averaging 12.8 points, 3.6 rebounds, 2.8 assists and 1.3 triples across 29 games this year.

Johnathan Williams accumulated two points (1-1 FG), one rebound and a block across three minutes in the Wizards' 121-107 win over the Hornets on Thursday.

Fantasy Impact: After being waived and subsequently re-signed on a two-way deal earlier in the month, Williams appeared in his first NBA game in a week in Thursday's victory. The Gonzaga product has only appeared in 10 games for the Wizards this season and doesn't belong on fantasy rosters outside of dynasty formats.

Admiral Schofield recorded one rebound and one steal across three minutes in the Wizards' 121-107 win over the Hornets on Thursday.

Fantasy Impact: The rookie has now appeared in two straight after a short stint in the G-League, though he's logged just five minutes combined in that span. The Tennessee product remains a valuable dynasty hold, though he has next to no value in redraft formats.

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. (Source: Fred Katz on Twitter)

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.
