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.

Davis Bertans chimed in with 21 points, four rebounds, three assists, one steal, one block and four threes on Wednesday night.
Bertans started out poorly but got it sorted out and ended up 8-for-16 from the field. One of the league's elite shooters is making himself a ton of money this summer and he's a fantasy lineup fixture through the end of the campaign.

Davis Bertans hit 6-of-12 shots from beyond the 3-point arc to finish Tuesday's game with 18 points, seven rebounds, one assist and one steal in 29 minutes off the bench.
Bertans did exactly what his owners wanted and needed from him tonight, a ton of threes. His seven boards and .462 shooting from the field were just welcome bonuses. It appears he's completely over the right knee soreness that kept him out of one game last week and is now ready to let it fly on a consistent basis once again for his owners in fantasy.

Davis Bertans ripped of eight 3-pointers as part of his 29 points (9-of-14 FG) on Sunday against the Warriors.
Bertans only hit one shot on Friday and he was glad to make up for that poor showing vs. the Warriors. You know the 3-pointers are coming in bunches with Bertans, and everything else is just gravy. Keep firing him up and enjoy the mid-round production that can almost single-handedly win you triples.

Davis Bertans turned in a subpar performance in Friday's 119-129 loss to Jazz, posting just seven points on 1-of-8 shooting from the field (all from deep) and 4-of-5 shooting from the line in 28 minutes.
Bertans did add five rebounds, one steal and one block to help soften the blow of his low-ish 3-point output. That said, he was playing against the Jazz, who are notoriously good defenders, so chalk it up to that and expect a bounce-back from one of 2019-20's hottest breakout stars.

Rui Hachimura saw 27 minutes in his start on Wednesday night, scoring 17 points on 6-of-10 shooting and grabbing four rebounds.
The 17 points were behind only Bradley Beal's 30 points on the night, as Hachimura continues to be a go-to option for the Wizards on offense. Davis Bertans came off the bench to score 14 points in 30 minutes of action, although struggled mightily going 5-for-13 (4-11 3PT) from the field.

Dāvis Bertāns (right knee soreness) will play in Wednesday’s tilt vs. the Nets.
Bertāns will return to the floor on Wednesday after missing the Wizards' last game. Bertāns can be fired up across all formats. Moritz Wagner could see his minutes decrease with Dāvis back in the mix.

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.
February 11, 2020, 7:05 pmRui HachimuraPF, Washington Wizards
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.
