Chris Chiozza averaged 4.0 points, 0.9 3s, 1.7 rebounds, 2.3 assists and 0.7 steals in 21 games for 306/307 value in 8/9-cat leagues on a per-game basis.
Chiozza was looked over during the draft due to his size, but he has all the intangibles needed to run the point. He's accurate from deep (.435 career 3-point shooter) and has the court vision and passing ability to keep the boat afloat while he's in. If Spencer Dinwiddie and Kyrie Irving don't return to action, Chiozza should see a nice uptick in his assist numbers, but the signing of Tyler Johnson makes that future a bit murky.

Spencer Dinwiddie stated that he tested positive for coronavirus and has experienced symptoms of the virus.
Dinwiddie will self-quarantine for 14 days before determining whether he will be able to participate when the league resumes play. He has been a key player for the Nets this season while averaging 20.6 points, 3.5 rebounds, and 6.8 assists. The Nets recently signed Tyler Johnson to bolster their bench. Joe Harris, Garrett Temple, and Chris Chiozza would be other candidates for more minutes if Dinwiddie cannot return when games begin.

Garrett Temple is officially doubtful to face the Spurs on Friday with a left ankle sprain.
Temple is likely to miss a second consecutive game on Friday. Timothé Luwawu-Cabarrot and Chris Chiozza soaked up most of Temple's minutes during Wednesday's game but neither did enough to warrant an add in standard leagues.

Chris Chiozza had another strong performance with 14 points (5-of-8 FG), two 3-pointers and a steal in Wednesday's 79-118 loss to the Grizzlies.
Chiozza once again capitalized on a tough game from Spencer Dinwiddie, though this was far more garbage time than last night's ferocious comeback in Boston. While Chiozza is playing well for the moment, we would only consider him an add in leagues with 18 teams or more. This doesn't seem like a sustainable run.

Chris Chiozza played a career-high 21 minutes, taking over at point guard in crunch time on Tuesday and putting up eight points on 3-of-5 shooting, three rebounds, four assists, two steals and two 3-pointers.
This was just Chiozza's 17th game with the big league club this season, and the Nets liked the way the offense was running with him well enough to leave Spencer Dinwiddie (14 points, three boards, four dimes, one steal, two blocks, two 3-pointers in 23 minutes) on the bench for most of the fourth quarter and overtime. It's a situation to monitor, more so for those that roster Dinwiddie than for people looking to pick up Chiozza, though.

Jeremiah Martin and Chris Chiozza are being listed as available to play against the Lakers on Thursday.
The Nets will call up both of their two-way players ahead of a stretch of three games in four nights. Neither of these guards is on the fantasy radar.

Chris Chiozza is being listed available for Monday's game against the Sixers.
Chiozza should see additional minutes with Kyrie Irving (hamstring) out for this one, but he still isn't likely to make an impact.

Chris Chiozza played his first game in a Nets jersey on Saturday and saw a bit of action in garbage time, notching one rebound and one assist on 0-of-3 shooting in seven minutes.
Chiozza likely won't see this much floor time in non-garbage time scenarios. He's on a two-way deal and could easily disappear from the rotation. Leave him on the wire.

The Nets have signed free agent point guard Chris Chiozza to a two-way contract.
Chiozza was released by Washington last month. He has appeared in a total of 17 games with the Wizards and the Rockets after going undrafted in 2018. The Nets could use some guard help with Kyrie Irving out indefinitely and David Nwaba sidelined with a season-ending torn Achilles.

The Wizards have waived Chris Chiozza on Tuesday after the signing of Anzejs Pasceniks to a two-way contract.
With Isaiah Thomas returning on Monday and the frontcourt being hit severely with the injury bug, the Wizards decided to go with a big man on the roster for now.

Isaiah Thomas (left calf strain) will not play in Thursday's game vs. the Sixers.
Thomas was not listed on the injury report so it is possible that this injury occurred in warmups prior to the contest. Continue to monitor as we will learn more later tonight or Friday. Ish Smith will likely start at point while Chris Chiozza will get additional opportunity. Chiozza could be a great low-cost DFS play on Thursday as the Wizards will also be without Jordan McRae (finger).

Jordan McRae underwent successful surgery on his right ring finger on Thursday and will be re-evaluated in roughly two weeks.
McRae has at times been a spark plug off the bench for the Wizards this season. He was averaging a career-high 18.1 minutes per game before this setback. Troy Brown Jr. could see an increase in his minutes which could raise his fantasy ceiling. Chris Chiozza could also see more opportunity but is best left for a low-cost DFS play.

Chris Chiozza has signed a two-way contract with the Wizards.
With Isaiah Thomas on the mend it's not surprising to see Washington use a two-way slot on another point guard. Chiozza probably won't see much playing time this season but the Wizards are thin at the position, so it's not impossible.

Chris Chiozza (right knee soreness) is probable for Friday's game against the Knicks.
It is unlikely that Chiozza makes the final roster and he is not on the fantasy radar.

The Rockets have waived Chris Chiozza, according to Alykhan Bijani of The Athletic.
Chiozza was signed for the remainder of the season last March after getting inked to a 10-day contract but was never a big factor in the rotation.
