Isaac Bonga, Justin Anderson, Admiral Schofield and Jordan McRae are all candidates to start at small forward when the Wizards begin their regular season next week.
Most of the Wizards’ starting lineup is secured, but injuries have eliminated top small forwards Troy Brown and CJ Miles from the rotation for the foreseeable future. The decision will reportedly come down to a second-year player packed with potential who lacks in-game experience, a training-camp invitee who signed a non-guaranteed contract, a rookie who has to do what he is told and a veteran accustomed to fighting for a roster spot. The Wizards have one more preseason game left on Friday in Philadelphia, and the four-man race will continue, but whoever emerges will only have short term value as the Wizards will likely insert Troy Brown to the lineup once he is back from the left calf strain he suffered before training camp.

Davis Bertans came off the bench in Monday's loss to the Knicks and scored nine points, all on threes, in 19 minutes.
Nine of Bertans' 10 shots were from deep, and he also added four rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block tonight. Some have been hoping that with Troy Brown out that Bertans could start, but that role went to Justin Anderson tonight. This performance it about in line with what Bertans provided last season, and unless he can snag some more minutes, he may not be much more than a 3-point streamer.

Justin Anderson is expected to start on Monday against the Knicks.
Anderson is not ticketed for big minutes this season, but he'll get an opportunity early in preseason. Anderson has shown the ability to fill a reserve role but averaged only 9.6 minutes per game for the Hawks last season.

The Wizards signed forward Justin Anderson.
The Wizards could use depth, but Anderson's deal is non-guaranteed and he is unlikely to make a major fantasy impact. He averaged 3.7 points last season in limited action for the Hawks.

According to The Athletic, the Wizards and Justin Anderson are trying to work towards a training camp contract.
Anderson averaged a career-low 9.6 minutes per game with the Hawks last season. The former first-round pick is looking to gain another opportunity on a thin Wizards team. He will likely not have much fantasy value if he manages to make the roster.

Justin Anderson will not be given a qualifying offer from the Hawks.
Anderson heads to unrestricted free agency after averaging a career-low 9.6 mpg last season. He missed the start of the year due to offseason surgery on a stress reaction in his left tibia. There's always been intriguing potential with Anderson, but he's running out of time to show any of it on the court.

Justin Anderson played 13 minutes in Wednesday's season finale against the Pacers, scoring seven points and grabbing three rebounds
The fifth year forward failed to get much opportunity in his first season in Atlanta. He played a career-low 9.6 mpg and failed to make much of an impact aside from a few spot starts in the waning days of the season. He’s not on the radar heading into next year’s drafts.

Justin Anderson played through a neck strain on Friday night and made another start, though he wasn't all that productive with five points, two rebounds, two assists, two steals and a 3-pointer while shooting 1-for-7.
Another made shot or two and the line looks much better, and it's clear that Anderson can chip in at multiple spots in the box score. He's looking at additional minutes for as long as Kevin Huerter and Kent Bazemore are sidelined and is a decent roll of the dice for cash counters. We'd also like to see him play more than 26 minutes, as he did in this one, though the blowout hit pretty much everyone in that regard.

The Hawks are listing Justin Anderson (neck strain) as probable for Friday's game against the Magic.
Kent Bazemore and Kevin Huerter were ruled out earlier in the day, opening up a prime opportunity for Justin Anderson against the Magic. Anderson has been a top-115 player in 9-cat leagues over the past week and will look to better that mark with the added opportunity. Anderson and DeAndre' Bembry make for nice cheap streaming options on a big Friday slate.

Justin Anderson followed up his big game on Sunday with seven points, nine rebounds, one steal and one three in 26 minutes on Tuesday against the Spurs.
Anderson isn't going to provide consistent production, but if you need a streamer with some upside, he could be your man due to the minutes he's looking at down the stretch.

Justin Anderson put up a big double-double in an overtime win against the Bucks on Sunday with 24 points, 12 rebounds, three assists, two steals and four 3-pointers.
Anderson was fairly quiet in his start on Friday, but showed off his potential in this one. He's always been pegged as an athletic three-and-D player, but has not been able to stick in a rotation so far in his young career. We'll see if a big game like this nets him more opportunity going forward.

Justin Anderson will start for Taurean Prince (bilateral foot soreness) again on Sunday.
Anderson started for Prince on Friday but was fairly quiet with six points, two assists, two threes and two blocks in 24 minutes. He's worth a stream if you need some cash counters today.
