Top Wizards News

  • Wizards' Kendrick Nunn: Plays well in Wizards debut

    Nunn supplied 12 points (5-9 FG, 2-5 3Pt), four rebounds, four assists and two steals across 22 minutes during Wednesday's 108-103 victory over the Rockets.

    Nunn surprisingly saw 22 minutes during his team debut, though he'll presumably see a reduction in role once Monte Morris (hamstring) returns. He'll mostly be competing for backup minutes at guard with Delon Wright and Jordan Goodwin. He may steal some time away from Corey Kispert as well.

  • Wizards' Bradley Beal: Scores 17 points in win

    Beal provided 17 points (7-17 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 3-4 FT), three rebounds and four assists in 30 minutes during Wednesday's 108-103 win over the Rockets.

    Beal had a rough shooting performance, but his contributions still lifted Washington to victory. He's been remarkably consistent of late, putting up at least 17 points in each of his four outings since returning from injury and shooting 47.5 percent from the field in that span.

  • Wizards' Deni Avdija: Struggles from field in win

    Avdija accumulated 10 points (4-13 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 1-2 FT), 10 rebounds, three assists, one block and one steal in 30 minutes during Wednesday's 108-103 win over Houston.

    Avdija ended with a double-double off the bench, though he was inefficient. He's posted back-to-back double-doubles for the first time this season following the trade of Rui Hachimura to the Lakers, but his upside will diminish once Kristaps Porzingis (ankle) returns.

  • Wizards' Kyle Kuzma: Explodes for 33 points

    Kuzma finished Wednesday's 108-103 win over the Rockets with 33 points (12-25 FG, 5-13 3Pt, 4-5 FT), nine rebounds, two assists, one block and one steal over 41 minutes.

    Kuzma led the way for the Wizards with one of his best showings of the season. The forward has been on a tear of late, scoring at least 25 points in four games in a row and reaching the 20-point mark in six of his last seven contests.

  • Wizards' Delon Wright: Draws start sans Morris

    Wright will start Wednesday's game against the Rockets, Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports.

    Wright will draw a spot start with Monte Morris (hamstring) taking the second night of a back-to-back set off. It'll mark Wright's first start of the season, but when he plays over 20 minutes (nine games), he's averaged 8.4 points, 4.3 assists, 3.6 rebounds and 2.2 steals. Kendrick Nunn should also see a sizable role during his Wizards debut.

  • Wizards' Monte Morris: Downgraded to out

    Morris (hamstring) has been ruled out for Wednesday's matchup against the Rockets.

    Morris will sit out the second half of Washington's back-to-back set due to right hamstring soreness. Kendrick Nunn is available to make his Wizards debut, so he and Delon Wright should absorb the majority of Morris' missing minutes.

  • Wizards' Monte Morris: Iffy for Wednesday

    Morris is questionable for Wednesday's game against the Rockets due to right hamstring soreness.

    Morris posted 13 points, five assists and three rebounds in 27 minutes during Tuesday's one-point win over Dallas, but the veteran guard is a question mark for the second half of Washginton's back-to-back set. Recently-acquired Kendrick Nunn will be available for Wednesday's matchup and should share the point guard duties with Delon Wright if Morris is downgraded to out.

  • Wizards' Will Barton: Reduced role continues

    Barton ended with eight points (3-5 FG, 2-3 3Pt), two rebounds and three assists over 15 minutes during Tuesday's 127-126 win over Dallas.

    Barton remains an afterthought when it comes to fantasy, logging just 15 minutes in the victory. Prior to Tuesday, he had not even been in the rotation for over a week, highlighting what a struggle it has been since arriving in Washington. At this point, it appears as though a trade is Barton's only chance at redeeming himself. For now, however, managers can focus their attention elsewhere.

  • Wizards' Kyle Kuzma: Drops team-high 30 points

    Kuzma contributed 30 points (12-23 FG, 2-10 3Pt, 4-5 FT), five rebounds, two assists and one block in 37 minutes during Tuesday's 127-126 win over the Mavericks.

    Kuzma brought his offensive game Tuesday, leading the way in the scoring column. Kristaps Porzingis (ankle) is set to miss up to two weeks, opening the door for Kuzma to shoulder even more of the Wizards' offensive load. He has now scored at least 20 points in five of his past six games and could be set for a bump, potentially opening a sell-high window at some point in the near future.

  • Wizards' Deni Avdija: Strong two-way performance

    Avdija logged 15 points (3-5 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 9-11 FT), 10 rebounds, three assists and three steals across 32 minutes during Tuesday's 127-126 victory over the Mavericks.

    Avdija was terrific in Tuesday's win, notching his fifth double-double of the season and adding three defensive stats. With Kristaps Porzingis (ankle) expected to be sidelined for around two weeks, Avdija has an opportunity to step up in the rotation, at least for the next few games. He is likely to remain a low-usage player, but his ability to contribute across multiple categories makes him someone to consider adding in 12-team leagues.

  • Wizards' Kendrick Nunn: Good to go

    Nunn (personal) will be available to play Tuesday against Dallas, Josh Robbins of The Athletic reports.

    Nunn will be available to make his Washington debut after being dealt from the Lakers on Monday. He's expected to serve in a depth role in the backcourt for his new squad.

  • Wizards' Corey Kispert: Starting against Dallas

    Kispert is in the starting lineup for Tuesday's game against the Mavericks, Ava Wallace of The Washington Post reports.

    Kispert moved to a bench role with the return of Bradley Beal last week, but he's back in the lineup due to the absence of Kristaps Porzingis (ankle). Kispert is averaging 9.7 points, 3.3 rebounds and 1.5 assists across 24 starts this season.
