  • Wizards' Marvin Bagley: Double-double in Wednesday's loss

    Bagley provided 14 points (6-14 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 1-2 FT), 10 rebounds, two assists and two blocks across 30 minutes during Wednesday's 133-126 loss to the Pelicans.

    The 24-year-old center delivered his second straight double-double, and fourth straight in games during which he played at least 28 minutes, as he settles into a starting role for the Wizards with Daniel Gafford now in Dallas. Bagley was the second overall pick in the 2018 Draft, but his career never took off in Sacramento or Detroit due to injuries and an inconsistent role. A fresh start in Washington, and a complete lack of serious competition for court time in the frontcourt, might provide Bagley with the spark he needs to become a real asset.

  • Wizards' Marvin Bagley: Modest workload in return

    Bagley (back) tallied two points (1-7 FG, 0-1 3Pt), two blocks and one rebound in 15 minutes Saturday in the Wizards' 119-113 loss to the 76ers.

    In the aftermath of Thursday's trade deadline, Bagley looked like one of the big winners after the Wizards traded away starting center Daniel Gafford to Dallas and brought in just one new center in Richaun Holmes, who hadn't been a regular part of the Mavericks' rotation prior to being dealt. Holmes was active but didn't see any action Sunday, and though he settled back into Gafford's old starting spot in his return from a four-game absence, Bagley handled only a light role while the Wizards favored small-ball lineups. As he becomes further removed from the back injury and as the Wizards oppose more teams featuring bigger starting centers than the 76ers' Paul Reed, Bagley should see his playing time increase. Fantasy managers who might have been expecting a big blowup performance from Bagley in his return to action with Gafford out of the picture should have patience for at least a few more games.

  • Wizards' Marvin Bagley: Good to go against Philadelphia

    Bagley (back) isn't on the injury report for Saturday's game versus the 76ers.

    Bagley will return to action Saturday after missing the last four games with a back contusion. The 24-year-old big man will likely take over the starting center role against Philadelphia following the trade of Daniel Gafford.

  • Wizards' Marvin Bagley: Won't play Friday

    Bagley (back) has been ruled out for Friday's game against the Celtics.

    Friday will mark Bagley's fourth straight game on the sidelines, but he could be available for the second leg of the back-to-back set Saturday against the 76ers. With Daniel Gafford being shipped away to Dallas on Thursday, the Wizards may be forced to give Kyle Kuzma considerable minutes at center if trade-deadline pickup Richaun Holmes isn't cleared to make his team debut. Once he overcomes his back injury, Bagley could have a big opportunity ahead of him to see sizable minutes as the Wizards' starting center now that Gafford is out of the picture.

  • Wizards' Marvin Bagley: Won't play Wednesday

    Bagley (back) is out Wednesday against Cleveland.

    Bagley will miss his third consecutive game due to a low back contusion. Eugene Omoruyi logged 23 minutes in Bagley's stead Sunday and is a candidate to reprise a similar platoon role with Daniel Gafford on Wednesday.

  • Wizards' Marvin Bagley: Partial participant Tuesday

    Bagley (back) was a partial participant during Tuesday's practice, Josh Robbins of The Athletic reports.

    Bagley has missed two consecutive games due to a back contusion. It's encouraging to see him active at practice, but he still has a few hurdles to clear before returning to game action. His status for Wednesday's matchup against the Cavaliers should be released later Tuesday.

  • Wizards' Marvin Bagley: Out Sunday

    Bagley (back) won't play in Sunday's game against the Suns.

    Bagley will sit out for a second straight game, and it's unclear if he'll be ready to return Wednesday against the Cavaliers. On Friday versus Miami, the Wizards utilized a lot of smaller lineups, with Corey Kispert seeing extended minutes at power forward.

  • Wizards' Marvin Bagley: Won't play Friday

    Bagley (back) has been ruled out for Friday's game against the Heat.

    Bagley was questionable on the Wizards' initial injury report and will be forced to miss his first game since mid-January due to a back contusion. Kyle Kuzma and Anthony Gill are candidates to see additional minutes Friday, while Bagley's next chance to return will be Sunday against Phoenix.

  • Wizards' Marvin Bagley: Questionable for Friday

    Bagley is questionable for Friday's game against Miami due to a low back contusion.

  • Wizards' Marvin Bagley: Season-best 15 boards off bench

    Bagley amassed 17 points (7-8 FG, 3-8 FT), 15 rebounds and one steal in 26 minutes during Wednesday's 118-107 loss to Minnesota.

    Bagley led all bench players in Wednesday's contest in scoring while leading the Wizards in rebounds and ending as one of two players with a double-double in one of his best performances of the season. Bagley set a season high in rebounds while posting a double-double for the fourth time this season, including in three of his last four contests.

  • Wizards' Marvin Bagley: Moves to bench Sunday

    Bagley will come off the bench Sunday against Denver.

    Bagley joining the second unit upon the return of Daniel Gafford (concussion) is the expected lineup alteration for the Wizards. Sunday will represent a notable litmus test for the extent of Bagley's role while he platoons with Gafford for the first time.

  • Wizards' Marvin Bagley: Solid output in starting role

    Bagley closed with 21 points (8-19 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 4-4 FT), 12 rebounds, two assists and one steal over 36 minutes during Saturday's 131-127 loss to the Spurs.

    With Daniel Gafford (concussion) sidelined, Bagley started for the second game in a row and posted an impressive stat line while notching a second straight double-double. Bagley should experience an uptick in his fantasy upside if he stays in a starting role, but that will depend on Gafford's availability ahead of Sunday's matchup against the Nuggets.

  • Wizards' Marvin Bagley: Tallies double-double in debut

    Bagley ended with 20 points (10-16 FG, 0-5 FT), 11 rebounds, two assists, three blocks and two steals across 39 minutes during Thursday's 113-109 loss to the Knicks.

    Bagley made his first appearance with Washington after being traded by Detroit, leading all Wizards in rebounds and blocks while ending as one of two players with 20 or more points in a double-double performance. Bagley matched a season high in rebounds while posting his third game of the year with 20 or more points en route to his second double-double. It's worth noting that starting center Daniel Gafford is currently out with a concussion, but this was a fine start for Bagley as a Wizard nonetheless.

  • Wizards' Marvin Bagley: Seemingly available Thursday

    Bagley (trade pending) isn't on the injury report for Thursday's game versus the Knicks.

    Bagley appears set to make his Wizards debut Thursday after being acquired from the Pistons on Sunday. Bagley will likely serve as Washington's backup center to Daniel Gafford (concussion), but Bagley could start against the Knicks due to Gafford being out for the contest.

  • Wizards' Marvin Bagley: Will start Thursday

    Bagley will start Thursday's game against the Knicks, Chase Hughes of Monumental Sports Network reports.

    Bagley getting the start in his debut with the Wizards is not a surprise, as Washington is limited on frontcourt depth with Daniel Gafford (concussion) sidelined. In 26 appearances for the Pistons, Bagley posted averages of 10.2 points, 4.5 rebounds, 1.0 assists and 1.1 turnovers in 18.4 minutes.

  • Wizards' Marvin Bagley: Won't debut Monday

    Bagley (trade pending) won't make his Wizards debut in Monday's contest against Detroit, Josh Robbins of The Athletic reports.

    After being acquired from Detroit earlier Sunday, Bagley has yet to depart for Washington and still needs to complete a physical with his new team. As a result, he won't be able to suit up Monday for what would be a quick turnaround showdown against his former team. Bagley should be ready to make his Wizards debut Thursday against the Knicks, and he could immediately settle in as the top backup to starting center Daniel Gafford.

  • Wizards' Marvin Bagley: Headed to Washington

    The Wizards are set to acquire Bagley, Isaiah Livers and two future second-round draft picks from the Pistons on Sunday in exchange for Danilo Gallinari and Mike Muscala, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

    Livers and the pair of second-round picks are likely viewed as the main assets in the deal for the Wizards, as Bagley is in the second season of a three-year, $37.5 million deal and recently fell out of the Detroit rotation. With Washington sending out its top two reserve centers in Gallinari and Muscala, Bagley could end up slotting in as the Wizards' new top backup to starting center Daniel Gafford. Given Gafford's penchant for getting into foul trouble and having his playing time suppressed as a result, Bagley could have a path to 20-plus minutes in some games, but the 24-year-old still has a relatively underwhelming fantasy profile, with his contributions being highly concentrated in the points, rebounds and field-goal percentage categories.

  • Pistons' Marvin Bagley: Moves to bench Saturday

    Bagley is not in the starting lineup to face the Nets on Saturday, James L. Edwards III of The Athletic reports.

    With Isaiah Stewart moving to center, Bagley will head back to the bench for this one, as the Pistons will have Ausar Thompson at small forward and Bojan Bogdanovic at power forward. Bagley is averaging 8.2 points and 4.1 rebounds per game when deployed off the bench this season.
