Wizards' Deni Avdija: Efficient night in loss
Avdija logged 15 points (6-9 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 2-3 FT), seven rebounds, four assists, two blocks and one steal in 27 minutes during Friday's 124-97 loss to the Nets.
Avdija was the second leading scorer on the Wizards behind Kyle Kuzma, in a game that Washington shoot 18.2 percent from beyond the arc. Avdija is quietly averaging a career-high 12.1 points per game while shooting 51.9 percent from the floor and 35.7 percent from three.... See More ... See Less
Wizards' Kyle Kuzma: Leading scorer in loss
Kuzma notched 17 points (8-17 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 0-1 FT), three rebounds and two assists in 30 minutes during Friday's 124-97 loss to Brooklyn.
Kuzma was one of four Wizards players to score in double-digits as the team struggled to score. He played a team-high 30 minutes despite the blowout loss and has now scored 15-plus points in five straight games. Kuzma came into Friday's game averaging career highs in points (23.2), shooting (47.3 percent) and assists (4.8).... See More ... See Less
Wizards' Jordan Poole: Quiet night in loss
Poole supplied eight points (3-7 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 2-2 FT), two rebounds and two assists over 24 minutes during Friday's 124-97 loss to the Nets.
The normally high-volume shooter took a season-low seven shots Friday night. Poole's eight points also broke a seven-game stretch of scoring in double-digits as he struggled to get involved on offense. His 24 minutes of playing time was the lowest since Nov 1. due to the large deficit and he'll look to get back on track Monday against the 76ers.... See More ... See Less
Wizards' Daniel Gafford: Good to go
Gafford (ankle) is available for Friday's matchup against Brooklyn, Ava Wallace of The Washington Post reports.
Gafford has been upgraded from questionable to available and will suit up for a 17th straight game. Over his last 11 appearances, Gafford has averaged 12.1 points, 8.0 rebounds, 2.3 assists and 1.8 blocks in 26.5 minutes per game.... See More ... See Less
Wizards' Daniel Gafford: Full participant in shootaround
Gafford (ankle), who is questionable for Friday's game against the Nets, fully participated in Washington's morning shootaround, Ava Wallace of The Washington Post reports.
Gafford is dealing with a left ankle sprain ahead of Friday's matchup, but his participation in the shootaround certainly bodes well for his status. He's scored in double figures in four of his last five appearances, averaging 12.4 points, 6.6 rebounds and 2.6 assists in 24.2 minutes per game.... See More ... See Less
Wizards' Patrick Baldwin: Recalled by Washington
The Wizards recalled Baldwin from the Capital City Go-Go on Friday.
Baldwin was assigned to the G League's Capital City Go-Go on Thursday, but he'll rejoin the Wizards ahead of Friday's game in Brooklyn. The 21-year-old shouldn't be part of Washington's rotation after averaging just 3.7 minutes per game over three appearances with the club earlier this year.... See More ... See Less
Wizards' Ryan Rollins: Still sidelined
Rollins (knee) won't play in Friday's game versus the Nets.
Rollins will miss his eighth straight game Friday due to a right knee strain. His next chance to suit up is Monday's matchup with Philadelphia.... See More ... See Less
Wizards' Landry Shamet: Unavailable Friday
Shamet (ribs) has been ruled out for Friday's game against the 76ers.
Shamet sat out Wednesday's game against Philadelphia with his rib injury, and he'll be forced to miss a second consecutive matchup Friday. It's not yet clear when he'll be able to return to action, but his next opportunity to do so will be Monday in a rematch against the 76ers.... See More ... See Less
Wizards' Daniel Gafford: Questionable against Brooklyn
Gafford is listed as questionable for Friday's game versus the Nets due to a left ankle sprain.
Gafford presumably injured his ankle in Wednesday's contest and could be held out of Friday's game. If Gafford is downgraded to out, Mike Muscala will likely see an increase in minutes.... See More ... See Less
Wizards' Bilal Coulibaly: Solid showing despite loss
Coulibaly logged 14 points (6-10 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 1-1 FT), three assists, three steals and a rebound through 28 minutes in Wednesday's 131-126 loss to the 76ers.
Coulibaly has consistently seen heavy minutes this season, especially as of recently. Since missing the Milwaukee game Nov. 24 due to a knee injury, the rookie forward has averaged 9.0 points, 3.6 rebounds, 1.0 assists, 1.8 steals and 0.4 blocks over 29.0 minutes. He and Corey Kispert lead the charge amongst the second unit for the Wizards, and as he develops through his first season, expect Coulibaly's role to potentially increase moving forward....

Wizards' Daniel Gafford: All-round game in loss
Gafford racked up 18 points (8-10 FG, 2-2 FT), six rebounds, four assists, two blocks and one steal over 23 minutes before fouling out of Wednesday's 131-126 loss to the 76ers.
Gafford has now scored in double digits in nine of his last 11 games as he continues to operate behind Kyle Kuzma and Jordan Poole on the offensive side of the floor. Gafford has shown promise on both ends of the court and has now registered at least two blocks in six straight appearances.... See More ... See Less
Wizards' Tyus Jones: Efficient night in loss
Jones ended with 20 points (8-11 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT), three rebounds, eight assists, two blocks and one steal across 31 minutes during Wednesday's 131-126 loss to the 76ers.
Jones tied with Deni Avdija for the most assists on the team. Jones has now scored in double digits in nine of his last 11 games as he continues to establish his role on offense alongside the duo of Jordan Poole and Kyle Kuzma. Jones will look to build off his strong performance Friday against the Nets.... See More ... See Less
Wizards' Jordan Poole: Finally has efficient night
Poole racked up 23 points (10-16 FG, 3-5 3Pt), one rebound, two assists and one steal over 32 minutes during Wednesday's 131-126 loss to Philadelphia.
It was the third time this season -- and the first time since Nov. 6 -- that Poole has shot at least 50 percent from the floor. The fifth-year guard out of Michigan has struggled with his shot this season as he takes on a bigger role compared to when he was with the Warriors in his first four years in the league. Poole will look to continue his momentum Friday against the Nets.... See More ... See Less
Wizards' Jordan Poole: Good to go Wednesday
Poole (ankle) is available for Wednesday's game versus Philadelphia.
Poole has been upgraded from questionable to available Wednesday despite dealing with a nagging ankle injury. The 24-year-old guard is averaging 18.6 points, 3.8 rebounds, 3.6 assists and 1.4 steals in 29.6 minutes across his last five appearances.... See More ... See Less
