Marcin Gortat shot 5-for-9 from the field and 4-for-6 from the line for 14 points with 12 rebounds, three assists and two blocks in 37 minutes in Monday’s 114-106 loss to the Houston Rockets.
Gortat brought the lunch pail effort yet again tonight. He has now double-doubled in four out of six games for the Wizards, much to the joy of fantasy owners. He has been worth the mid-round choice at a position that benefits greatly from his efficiency.
Otto Porter Jr. was also helpful for owners with 20 points, eight boards and three steals. He is warming up after a quiet start and is starting to turn the corner. Stay patient with him. Meanwhile, Markieff Morris had an underwhelming outing with seven points on 3-of-14 shooting with nine boards. Better nights are ahead for ‘Kieff.
