  • Jerome Robinson

    Jerome Robinson (sore left Achilles) is questionable to play on Tuesday.

    Robinson sat out on Sunday, allowing Isaac Bonga to draw the start. That will likely continue to happen for as long as Robinson is out, though there's not much for deep-league GMs to work with there. Robinson had strung a couple solid games together and might be worth a pickup in 16-team formats if he can return to minutes in the mid-twenties.

  • Rui Hachimura
    PF, Washington Wizards

    Rui Hachimura did not play well against the Heat on Sunday as he put up zero points on 0-of-8 shooting in 40 minutes of action.

    Hachimura has been playing well since he recovered from his groin contusion, but this performance was not pretty. Chalk this one up as a fluke game and hope that he bounces back next time out there. The Wizards have no reason to bench him, so the opportunities will be there for him to turn it around if he hits a cold spell.

  • Davis Bertans
    F, Washington Wizards

    Davis Bertans played well against the Heat on Sunday with 25 points on eight 3-pointers in 27 minutes of action.

    Bertans won the duel with fellow sharpshooter Duncan Robinson as he knocked down eight triples to Robinson's seven. However, he was unable to lead the Wizards to victory. He remains a middle-round option mainly due to his elite shooting ability.

  • Shabazz Napier
    PG, Washington Wizards

    Shabazz Napier put up 27 points with seven assists and four steals in 40 minutes of action in a 100-89 loss to the Heat on Sunday.

    Napier is a great stream with Ish Smith sidelined for a least one week and proved it with his best game of the season on Sunday. He shot 6-of-14 from the field and 11-of-14 from the stripe. Give him a look if he is sitting on the wire in your league as he offers late-round upside.

  • Moritz Wagner
    PF, Washington Wizards

    Moe Wagner went to the locker room with a trainer during the fourth quarter against the Heat on Sunday.

    Wagner had posted four points, four rebounds and one assist before exiting the scene. He has some potential when given a bigger role in the rotation, but the Wizards have been getting healthier lately, limiting Wagner to under 20 minutes per game. He's just a deep league flyer in that role.

    Jerome Robinson (sore left Achilles) will not play on Sunday and Isaac Bonga will start in his place.

    A real shame, as Robinson has been getting consistent minutes for Washington and responding with interesting fantasy lines. Deep-league GMs should hope that Robinson returns soon, though all bets are off with the go-nowhere Wizards.

    SG, Washington Wizards

    With newfound opportunity as a member of the Washington Wizards, Jerome Robinson is looking to regain confidence in the trait that made him a lottery pick last season: his shooting stroke.

    Robinson has found himself playing big minutes in the Wiz's rotation lately thanks to his solid perimeter defense and an injury to Ish Smith (hamstring), but he has acknowledged he has a lot more to do in terms of producing offensively. “Sometimes I make a move and then I pass. I’m like, ‘That was my opportunity,’” Robinson said. “So, just making mental notes of it and staying aggressive and playing through it.” Robinson didn't do much shooting as a member of the Clippers, he was mostly deployed as a situational wing-stopper defensively in short spurts. It's worth keeping in mind, however, that he shot 40% from deep in his last year of college on a healthy 5.7 attempts per-game, so he's certainly capable of lighting it up from deep. Keep him in mind as we approach the silly season stretch of the schedule.

    Jerome Robinson (left Achilles soreness) is questionable for Sunday's game.

    Robinson has started the last two games for the Wizards, and has seen at least 21 minutes in each of his last five. Last night's game was his best yet, as he chipped in 14 points, six boards, five assists, three steals and two 3-pointers, so hopefully Robinson is only dealing with a minor ailment and can keep this momentum. He's emerging as a solid deep-league option for the stretch run.

  • Bradley Beal
    SG, Washington Wizards

    Bradley Beal torched the Hawks for 35 points (13-for-21 shooting), seven triples, four assists, three rebounds, two steals and a block in Friday's 118-112 win.

    It was nice to finally see Beal go off in a winning effort on Friday. Beal has been so consistently elite that it's almost becoming boring. Keep him locked in your lineup as he's providing the kind of production that can carry a fantasy team.

  • Jerome Robinson
    SG, Washington Wizards

    Jerome Robinson scored 14 points (4-for-9 shooting), with six rebounds, five assists, two triples and three steals in 36 minutes on Friday.

    It was the second start in a row for Robinson, who flashed some of the talent that made him a lottery pick. He is worth a pick up in deep leagues as it seems the Wizards are looking to give him all the minutes he can handle as the season winds down.

  • Troy Brown Jr.
    SF, Washington Wizards

    Troy Brown Jr. stuffed the stat sheet on Friday, finishing with 13 points (5-for-10 shooting), five assists, four rebounds, one steal, one block and one triple in 28 minutes off the bench.

    Brown was part of a productive trio of bench players for the Wizards on Friday joining Davis Bertans (17 points and three triples) and Moe Wagner (10 points and four rebounds) to help contribute to the winning effort for the Wizards.

  • Thomas Bryant
    C, Washington Wizards

    Thomas Bryant will get the start when the Wizards face the Hawks on Friday.

    Bryant missed Wednesday's game for "injury management" purposes, which is likely a weakness for fantasy purposes until the end of this season. Bryant should only get better and will hit 12-team value once his minute's cap gets into the 20s, but for the moment you will have to roll with the low minutes the best you can.

  • Ish Smith
    PG, Washington Wizards

    Ish Smith will miss at least one week's worth of action due to his left hamstring.

    Shabazz Napier is looking like a nice streamer while Smith is absent for the Wizards. Smith has some low-end guard stats to provide standard league players when he's healthy, but feel free to drop him until that's the case.

  • Ish Smith
    PG, Washington Wizards

    Ish Smith (left hamstring) has been ruled out for Friday night against the Hawks.

    Smith has been ruled out a day in advance ahead of Friday night's matchup versus Atlanta after already having sat out on Wednesday night. It's a hamstring so expect that he may miss additional time. Feel free to get Shabazz Napier into your lineups.

  • Bradley Beal
    SG, Washington Wizards

    Bradley Beal finished Wednesday's loss with 29 points, six rebounds, six assists, a steal and four 3-pointers.

    Same song, different chorus for Beal, who continues to post gaudy numbers in losing efforts. This wasn't his best game however, as he shot just 10-for-29 from the field. That blemish aside, Beal is good for elite fantasy value, whether the Wizards win or not.
