    Garrison Mathews has signed his qualifying offer with the Wizards and is looking to return with the team this season.

    Mathews will stick with the team on a two-way deal. He was a non-factor last season, posting top-325 value. He remains on the outs in fantasy circles. Leave him on the wire, regardless of how deep your league is.

    Garrison Mathews remains away from the Wizards for personal reasons, and it's unknown whether he will arrive in the bubble at all.

    Scott Brooks said that Mathews is "fine" but that a determination had not been made about his status going forward. The rookie from Lipscomb averaged 5.4 points and 1.3 rebounds during limited action in 18 regular season games. Jerome Robinson should continue to play heavily without Bradley Beal and Mathews around.

    Garrison Mathews only had one stretch of consistent playing time as a rookie, turning it into top-325 fantasy production.

    Mathews first appeared on October 25 and then didn't reemerge until December 14. From then on, he played in every game through January 6 before a severe ankle sprain kept him out of action for 13 games. Although he was recovered in about a month, Mathews would play just two games after the All-Star break. His high water mark came on December 30, when he dropped 28 points and four threes against the Heat. The athletic Mathews showed solid 3-point abilities and might be someone to watch in very deep leagues next year.

    Garrison Mathews did not travel with the Wizards to Orlando for personal reasons.

    Mathews does not have COVID-19 but it's unclear if he'll be part of the group that plays in Washington's eight-game resumption schedule. Mathews missed time with an ankle injury earlier in the season and it more or less knocked him out of the rotation even when he was healthy, but he might be in the mix for minutes given Bradley Beal's absence in Orlando.

    Garrison Mathews (right ankle sprain) will be a game-time decision for Saturday's game versus the Nets.

    Mathews doesn't offer much long-term value with Bradley Beal healthy and could be left on waivers.

    Head coach Scott Brooks told the media on Wednesday that Garrison Matthews will be "out for some time" with a right ankle sprain.

    Brooks didn't give a timetable but it is safe to assume that Matthews will miss multiple games. He can be dropped safely as he is only a 3-point specialist in only the deepest of leagues.

    Garrison Mathews (right ankle sprain) is being listed as out for Wednesday's matchup with the Magic.

    It's unclear how long Mathews will be out with the ankle injury, but we should get more details soon. Mathews is a 3-point specialist in deeper leagues.

    X-rays came back negative on Garrison Mathews' injured ankle on Monday.

    Garrison Mathews is listed as out for the remainder of the game with a sprained right ankle.

    Mathews' night ends with two assists and a steal in four minutes. You know him as the guy whose first game with double-digit scoring was a 28-point effort last week. He hit four treys in that game and had five two games later. Even with the Wizards missing most of their regulars, Mathews is mainly 3-point flyer.

    Garrison Mathews was able to tally 18 points off the bench on Friday, going 6-of-9 form the field and hitting a career-high five 3-pointers.

    Mathews has 28, 10 and 18 points over his last three games and is definitely worth a short-term pickup in deep leagues while Bradley Beal is out. It's a very short-lived situation but Mathews has likely played himself into a larger role when the Wizards eventually embrace the tank.

  • Bradley Beal
    SG, Washington Wizards

    Bradley Beal (leg soreness) is questionable to face the Blazers on Friday.

    Beal has been a 2nd/3rd round value in 8/9-cat leagues thus far. His consecutive regular season game streak ended at 192 games just last week so he has proven that he is not an "injury-prone" player. Look for Jordan McRae, Troy Brown Jr., Gary Payton II and Garrison Mathews to see an increase in playing time if he is unable to play.

    Bradley Beal will test out his calf pregame and his status for Wednesday's contest vs. the Magic will be determined after seeing how he responds.

    Beal is in jeopardy of missing his third straight game on Wednesday. Jordan McRae, Gary Payton II and Garrison Matthews will likely receive additional minutes if Beal sits out. Whether or not Beal plays on Wednesday, the fact that he is a game-time decision bodes well for his likelihood of returning sooner rather than later.

    Garrison Mathews had a game to remember with 28 points (6-of-9 FGs, 12-of-13 FTs), four treys and four boards in 29 minutes in a 123-105 home win over the Heat on Monday.

    This was Mathews' first game in which he played more than 20 minutes, and he certainly made the most of his opportunity. Mathews is a two-way player, and his previous season-high in points was six, so keep your expectations in check. However, the Wizards are spectacularly short-handed right now, so he could go on a little run here, especially if Bradley Beal (lower right leg soreness) misses more time.

    The Wizards have signed rookie Garrison Mathews to a two-way contract.

    Mathews went undrafted after four seasons with the Lipscomb Bisons. He was the 2019 Atlantic Sun Player of the Year with 20.8 points, 5.5 rebounds, 1.9 assists, 0.8 steals and 3.2 triples with a 44.3/40.3/86.0 shooting line. With Mathews leading the way, the Bisons reached the NIT championship game where they lost to the Texas Longhorns.
