Davis Bertans (sore right knee) will not play during Monday's game.
Bertans scored 22 points in 37 minutes on Sunday but will miss the second half of the back-to-back. Without him, Rui Hachimura is in a good spot for a big night versus the Bucks.

Davis Bertans (sore right knee) is questionable to play on Monday.
Bertans dropped 22 points and five more threes on Sunday, playing 37 minutes in the process. If he sits it'll lead to more work for Rui Hachimura and Troy Brown in smaller lineups, but there's no clear pickup in standard leagues. The best outcome is simply Bertans playing through his issue, which is hopefully minor.

Davis Bertans was good for 22 points, four rebounds, five 3-pointers, one steal and six turnovers vs. the Bulls on Sunday.
You know what you are signing up for with Bertans. 3-pointers and points will be the nightly outlook and anything else is a bonus. He remains a very reliable mid-round value. Thomas Bryant did not do much in comparison, seeing just 14 minutes, during which he tallied four points, five rebounds and a steal. Bryant's workload will increase with time, just hang in there as he should be good for mid-round value as well when he receives 30 minutes a night.

Davis Bertans did a bit of everything for the Wizards on Wednesday, chipping in 16 points on 4-of-9 FGs and 6-of-7 FTs, adding two rebounds, two assists, two 3-pointers, two steals and one block.
Bertans has been a pillar of stability for the Wizards as a reliable 3-point threat and floor-spacer off the bench. His contributions both in real-life and fantasy have been nothing short of amazing this season.

Scott Brooks said that both Rui Hachimura and Moritz Wagner will be available to play for Tuesday and Wednesday's back-to-back set, but they will have their minutes monitored.
It makes sense as both players missed significant time dealing with injuries not too long ago. With Thomas Bryant out of action, they'll still see heavy usage in the frontcourt. There should be extra minutes for Davis Bertans and Ian Mahinmi with this news.

Davis Bertans was solid in Sunday's game vs. the Grizzlies, registering 15 points (6-of-13 FG), six rebounds, three 3-pointers and one steal.
Bertans has settled into this line of late and remains a mid-round value on the strength of his 3-pointers. The rest of the box score will not blow you away, but an elite shooter from deep still has his usefulness in fantasy circles. Mortiz Wagner also had a solid line off the bench, going for 19 points, nine rebounds and one 3-pointer over 24 minutes. He has some streaming appeal right now and makes for a deep league pickup.

The Wizards have listened to a plethora of offers for Davis Bertans ahead of Thursday’s NBA trade deadline, but they have not been swayed from their plan to keep the sharpshooter and re-sign him in the summer.
“We have every intention of retaining him,” Wizards GM Tommy Sheppard said. “He’s the exact type of player we want to have in our organization. I think he wants to be here. Business will take care of itself.”
The Wizards plan to make the 27-year-old a building block for their future and the Latvian forward seems to be happy in DC. Bertans remains a must-own player in standard leagues averaging 3.6 triples per game, the highest average in franchise history.

Davis Bertans played through a stiff neck injury and came off the bench on Monday to score 19 points on 6-of-9 shooting to go with four rebounds, five assists, a steal, a block and five triples.
Bertans made a triumphant return tonight and logged 32 minutes off the bench. He should be plugged back into all lineups as it looks like he's ready for action again.

Davis Bertans (stiff neck) will be available for Monday's game.
Bertans had been considered questionable but is good to go. He has made at least one 3-pointer in every game since January 10.

ESPN's Zach Lowe is reporting that the Wizards have "waved away" teams asking about Davis Bertans' availability.
Bertans is one of the league's elite sharpshooters and figures to be a popular target among the league's elite, though the Wizards may just be willing to keep him, sign him this summer, and make him part of the roster's core. A first-round pick well into the future doesn't appear to be enough to entice the Wizards, as they need to balance their future assets with keeping Bradley Beal happy and engaged. It's a delicate balance for sure but Bertans may be a part of the longer-term solution in Washington.

Davis Bertans (neck tightness) will be a game-time decision on Monday.
Right when the Wizards get some of their players back, Bertans might be heading out of the lineup. Obviously you'll have to see what the status update is later, but if Bertans sits it could open up more minutes for Rui Hachimura in his return, as well as guys like Isaac Bonga and Troy Brown.

Davis Bertans did a bit of everything for the Wizards on Saturday, recording 11 points on 3-of-7 shooting (all from deep) with seven rebounds, three assists, one steal and one block in 30 minutes.
Bertans has been a reliable top-50 play throughout the season and his ability to put up lines like this one tonight is the bread and butter of the fantasy ceiling he holds.

Davis Bertans had a good showing for himself on Tuesday, notching 15 points on 5-of-7 shooting, including 4-for-4 from deep, chipping in three rebounds, one steal and two blocks.
Bertans found his shooting rhythm once again tonight and should be good for a massive end-of-season run. As long as he's healthy, he will be one of the league's best sources of 3-pointers and a sprinkling of peripherals.

Davis Bertans struggled from deep on Sunday against the Hawks, going 2-of-9 from 3-point range, but still put up 12 points, five rebounds, three assists, three steals and one block.
Bertans cannot be stopped. His versatility to bring a handful of rebounds, assists, steals and blocks makes him an easy mid-round value. His role should be secure whether or not Thomas Bryant's minutes rise. Bryant still started ahead of Bertans, but he only received 18 minutes, during which he registered 11 points and five rebounds. The minutes should go up with time for Bryant, just hang in there.

Davis Bertans scored 17 points on 6-of-10 shooting while adding two rebounds, two assists, a steal and four 3-pointers on Thursday.
Bertans continues to light it up from deep as one of the league's premier shooters. His value is as steady as ever, regardless of whether or not he starts.
