  • Mike Scott - SF/PF - Washington Wizards

    Mike Scott is still in the NBA’s concussion protocol and is questionable to play on Saturday vs. the Raptors.

    Scott got hit in the noggin during Wednesday’s game and remains in the NBA’s concussion protocol. If he isn’t cleared before Saturday’s game 1, look for Kelly Oubre, Ian Mahinmi and maybe even Jason Smith to get extra run.

  • Otto Porter - SF - Washington Wizards

    Otto Porter (right calf strain) participated in portions of practice on Friday and remains questionable for Saturday’s Game 1 against the Raptors.

    Porter picked up his injury on Tuesday and missed Wednesday’s season finale. In the past Porter has been known to play through injuries, so there’s a decent chance he suits up on Saturday. If he doesn’t, look for Kelly Oubre to draw the start. Check back for updates after shoot around on Saturday before the 3:30 (EST) tip-off.

  • Kelly Oubre - SF - Washington Wizards

    Kelly Oubre came away with 13 points, seven rebounds, two assists, three steals and a block in the Wizards' disappointing loss to the Hawks on Friday night.

    Oubre has been offensively challenged for the last several weeks. He's failed to shoot 50 percent or better since March 21. The last five games have been especially rough though as Kelly has shot only 20 percent. Coincidentally, the Wizards have only won one of those five games. Oubre's defense has still been strong but he needs to find some sort of efficiency as soon as possible to give the Wizards some punch off the bench.

  • Kelly Oubre - SF - Washington Wizards

    Kelly Oubre put in 11 points and added four rebounds, two assists and a steal in 34 minutes of action in the Wizards' 16-point loss to the Rockets on Tuesday night.

    Oubre has been a mess on offense lately and tonight was no different. He shot 2-for-11 and 1-for-7 from deep. In his last six games, Oubre is shooting just six percent on 3-pointers. No, that's not a typo. Six percent. As in 94 less than 100. Oubre has hit two 3-pointers in 33 tries. His overall shooting percentage in that time hasn't been much better at 31 percent. If you're counting on Oubre to help you capture a fantasy title, you should probably look elsewhere.

  • Otto Porter - SF/PF - Washington Wizards

    Otto Porter (sprained right ankle) is questionable for Saturday's game.

    Porter left Thursday's contest in Detroit after sustaining the injury, and his absence would be absolutely crushing for a Wizards squad that is quickly losing ground in the battle for the fourth seed in the East. At this point it'd behoove the team more to make sure OP is ready for the playoffs than try and leapfrog two other teams. If Porter is out for any length of time, Kelly Oubre would be an immediate add. He's been a top-150 type in a sixth man role and would see more touches as the fill-in starter, so give him a look if you're in need. Mike Scott would also see a little more run off the bench but is more of a 3-point specialist for deeper leagues.

  • Kelly Oubre - SG/SF - Washington Wizards

    Kelly Oubre scored 15 points (three 3s) to go with five boards, two assists a steal and a block in Friday’s loss to the Nuggets.

    Oubre has been a beast over last week with top-50 value off the bench. He should be used while he’s this hot, and Washington has four games next week. Otto Porter added 13 points (three 3s) and six boards in the home loss.

  • Kelly Oubre - SF - Washington Wizards

    Kelly Oubre scored 21 points off the bench in Wednesday’s loss to the Spurs, hitting 9-of-17 shots (including three treys) with six rebounds, three assists, two steals and two blocks in 34 minutes.

    Oubre is going to finish inside of the top-100 this season and he’s been useful for much of it.  He and Markieff Morris (five points, three rebounds, one steal, one block) have been alternating bigger nights and both are above the cut line in 12-team formats.  

  • Kelly Oubre - SF - Washington Wizards

    Kelly Oubre scored 16 points off the bench in Saturday’s 109-102 win over the Pacers, hitting 6-of-11 shots (including two threes) with two rebounds and two steals in 18 minutes.

    Oubre has been a quiet late-round value since John Wall (knee) went down and that’s been his M.O. this year.  Until the Wizards are at full strength owners can proceed with him as such.

  • Kelly Oubre - SG/SF - Washington Wizards

    Kelly Oubre had a nice game in his Friday night homecoming, posting 11 points, six rebounds, two assists, four steals and a 3-pointer in 33 minutes off the bench against the Pelicans.

    The New Orleans native was just 4-of-14 from the floor but did enough with the counting stats to make it work for owners tonight. He’s been floating around the top-150 all season long and has a sizable enough workload that you can feel comfortable about a plug-and-play at pretty much any time. Oubre is worth an add if you need rebounds, steals and some threes. He’s also a nice handcuff for most of Washington’s starters, as he can play both wing positions and even the four if Scott Brooks really wants to live on the edge. Oubre also awarded ten local kids with college scholarships tonight, which is fantastic off-the-court work. Mike Scott also got hot off the bench and finished with 14 points, but he’s nothing more than a roll of the dice in deep leagues.

  • Otto Porter - SF/PF - Washington Wizards

    Otto Porter (bruised hip) will play on Friday vs. the Pelicans.

    Porter’s a gamer so we’re not surprised he’s playing through the pain. Make sure he’s in your lineups. Kelly Oubre will stay with the second unit and will stay as a low-end option for wing stats.

  • Otto Porter - SF/PF - Washington Wizards

    Otto Porter sat out of Wednesday’s practice session but received treatment and was said to be feeling better this morning.

    Porter took a hard fall last night and tried to play through it before eventually asking out of the game. If he were to miss any time, Kelly Oubre would be an immediate add in standard leagues. Give him a look if you’re feeling proactive.

    Kelly Oubre returned from a one-game absence on Tuesday night to post 14 points, two steals, a block and two 3-pointers in 28 minutes.

    Oubre already floats around the top-150 and should see a nice boost if Otto Porter is forced to miss time with his hip injury. Proactive owners should amble on over to waiver wires just in case Oubre is still available.

  • Otto Porter Jr. - SF - Washington Wizards

    Otto Porter Jr. (hip) left late in the game to go to the locker room on Tuesday in the fourth quarter against the Miami Heat.

    Dwyane Wade collided with Porter late in the game, causing Porter to remain on the floor in pain before he continued. During the next timeout, Porter left for the locker room. We have seen Porter struggle with his hip injuries in the past, so this could be more than a rare occurrence. He finished with 12 points, five boards, five assists, one steal, one block and two threes in 32 minutes. If Porter misses time, Kelly Oubre is worth a look in standard leagues.

    Kelly Oubre will be back in the lineup tonight when the Wizards take on the Heat.

    Oubre has been dealing with foot pain for over a week, so we’ll see how much he plays tonight. The injury only cost him one game to this point and as it stands owners should tentatively plug him back into lineups. KO is Washington’s sixth man and a back-end play in 12-team leagues.

    After missing Sunday’s game with foot soreness, Kelly Oubre was able to return to Monday’s practice and said that he expects to play tomorrow against the Heat.

    Oubre added that he’s been playing through the pain for over a week, which might help explain his terrible shooting recently. While he’s looking to play, the Wiz could opt to hold him out to make sure he’s closer to 100 percent. KO is one of their most effective (and perhaps only effective) bench pieces and logs huge minutes as the team’s sixth man, so his health for the long run is far more important than tomorrow’s game. His combination of threes, rebounds and steals lends him back-end value in 12-team leagues so keep an eye on his status going forward.
