    Moritz Wagner (left ankle sprain) has been cleared for non-contact activities.

    Wagner was injured at the end of December and his recovery has been slow. He has averaged 11.6 points per game thanks in part to shooting 39.3 percent from deep. However, his return to game action does not yet seem imminent.

    Moritz Wagner (left ankle sprain) will remain in a walking boot for at least another week and isn't expected to return to game action for another three weeks at the earliest.

    This is a brutal break for Wagner and the Wizards, who are decimated in the frontcourt at the moment. Wagner was a red-hot pick up a few weeks ago staring at ample time, but the second-year big man couldn't take advantage of it after suffering an ill-timed injury. Wagner can be left on wires as Thomas Bryant, and possibly more, should be back in the fold by the time Wagner is ready to go.

    Moritz Wagner (left ankle sprain) is being listed as out for Monday's game versus the Heat.

    Wagner doesn't look to be nearing a return soon enough to warrant holding him. The Wizards' frontcourt is best to be avoided until Thomas Bryant, Davis Bertans or Rui Hachimura return.

    According to coach Scott Brooks, Moritz Wagner is expected to miss another week (maybe more) with a left ankle sprain.

    Wagner is not worth holding in standard leagues given this shaky timetable and his yet-to-be-realized perceived upside. It's time to move on folks. Find some fresher fish in that pool.

    The Wizards will not have Moe Wagner available on Saturday as he nurses a sprained left ankle.

    There's been no reports on a potential return for Wagner, which makes him tough to hold in 12-team leagues despite a fantastic opportunity in front of him while Thomas Bryant is out. Ian Mahinmi and Anzejs Pasecniks will split the center minutes in the meantime, though neither is much of a fantasy attraction.

    Mo Wagner will miss Friday's game against the Raptors as he continues to recover from a sprained left ankle.

    The Wizards could really use Wagner with the injuries to Thomas Bryant and Rui Hachimura. Their newly-signed two-way player, Anžejs Pasečņiks, actually saw 28 minutes in his first game and could be in line for a similar opportunity on Friday. He makes for an interesting DFS play.

    Mo Wagner (left ankle sprain) is being ruled out ahead of Wednesday's matchup with the Bulls.

    The Wizards frontcourt is a mess right now with Wagner, Rui Hachimura and Thomas Bryant all out. Davis Bertans will continue to get all the run he can handle while Ian Mahinmi should be force-fed minutes at center.

    Mortiz Wagner (sprained left ankle) will not play on Monday.

    Wagner was deemed unlikely to play earlier in the afternoon, and here's early confirmation that he's out. The Wizards have four games next week but Wagner will be playing in three max, which makes him a tough call in leagues with weekly lineup deadlines. Ian Mahinmi should be in for a lot of minutes as the last center standing, but he's not a great fantasy play.

    Scott Brooks deemed it unlikely that Moe Wagner (sprained ankle) would be able to play on Monday.

    It'll be Wagner's second straight absence, and he's missing a great chance to put up numbers with Thomas Bryant sidelined. Ian Mahinmi will once again be the Wizards' only center on Monday and could get some big minutes against Detroit.

    Mo Wagner (sprained ankle) has been ruled out on Saturday vs. the Grizzlies.

    Wagner was looking like one of the best pickups around before going down with this injury. Ian Mahinmi has gotten more minutes as of late but it's likely due to Wagner's health. Once he's back on the court he should regain his fantasy relevant status.

    Moe Wagner (ankle) was unable to participate in Thursday's practice.

    Wagner has cooled down substantially over the last two games, which just so happened to coincide with him being one of the most popular adds in fantasy basketball. Ian Mahinmi has taken a surprisingly large chunk of the minutes but perhaps that's the Wizards dialing back Wagner's workload while he's hurt. Stick with the sophomore, as he was producing standard-league value even before Thomas Bryant's injury elevated him into a larger role.

    Moritz Wagner was fantastic in 31 minutes on Friday, dropping 19 points on 7-of-14 shooting with nine rebounds, one 3-pointer, one assist and two steals,

    Wagner is looking a must-add in the wake of the Thomas Bryant three-week minimum absence. He's going to flirt with top-75 value on his good nights, making him a standard-league FA grab.

    Davis Bertans hit a season-high seven 3-pointers in 37 minutes off the bench on Thursday, scoring 25 points.

    Bertans took advantage of a hobbled Moritz Wagner in this contest and the seven triples were a season-high in a season that has already featured four games before this with at least five 3-pointers. Bertans is definitely a 3-point specialist at his lowest and with Thomas Bryant out for the next few weeks, he has to be deployed.

    Moritz Wagner (left ankle sprain) was limited to 26 minutes on Thursday, finishing with five points and 11 rebounds.

    Wagner is going to get more opportunity when healthy with Thomas Bryant absent. He should be rostered in every league for the foreseeable future as a top-100 option.

    Moritz Wagner (left ankle sprain) has been upgraded to available for Thursday's matchup against the Sixers.

    Wagner could be in line for a increased role for the Wizards while Thomas Bryant (right foot stress reaction) remains out. His main competition will be Ian Mahinmi, who is available for Thursday's game after not playing a single minute all season. Wagner is a must-own fantasy asset across all fantasy formats.
