Marcin Gortat scored 18 points and grabbed seven rebounds against the Kings on Monday.
Gortat has been awful over the past week and it took a game against the Kings for him to breathe some life into his fantasy season. He added a block and went 7-for-11 from the field but is still a low-end play at best. On the season he’s just outside of the top-130. There’s little upside to him and the Wizards have made some comments about playing Markieff Morris at the five once he’s back up to speed which is bad for Gortat owners. Morris struggled today, going 2-for-9 on his way to four points and went 0-of-5 from deep. With the emergence of Kelly Oubre Jr. (12 points, eight boards and two steals) and the return of Morris, Gortat’s role could diminish further.
