    Moe Wagner went to the locker room with a trainer during the fourth quarter against the Heat on Sunday.

    Wagner had posted four points, four rebounds and one assist before exiting the scene. He has some potential when given a bigger role in the rotation, but the Wizards have been getting healthier lately, limiting Wagner to under 20 minutes per game. He's just a deep league flyer in that role.

    Moe Wagner started in place of Thomas Bryant (foot) on Wednesday and chalked up nine points, nine rebounds and two steals in 19 minutes.

    Wagner had four fouls tonight, which isn't a surprise considering he was overmatched against Hassan Whiteside for the most part. The sophomore has been a nice surprise for the Wizards this year but is only a deep-league asset for the time being.

    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.

    Moritz Wagner was strong off the bench with eight points (1-of-3 FGs, 6-of-8 FTs), 10 boards and five dimes in 28 minutes in an overtime loss to the Bucks at home on Monday.

    Thomas Bryant (right foot) sat out this game, so the 28 minutes for Wagner likely won't last once both big men are active. Wagner is a wise option for deep-leaguers that need good percentages from a center.

    Moritz Wagner was assessed two technical fouls on Wednesday and finished the game with six points, four rebounds, one steal and one block in 17 minutes.

    Wagner is going to take a hit in value when Thomas Bryant (sore right foot) returns, which could be the first game after the All-Star break. Wagner will be a drop in standard leagues when Bryant returns. He could have late-round value in 14-team leagues, but he has low upside when the Wizards are healthy.

    C, Washington Wizards

    Coach Scott Brooks said on Tuesday that Thomas Bryant's re-evaluation went great and that he could return as early as the first game after the All-Star break.

    It sounds like Bryant will not be suiting up for Wednesday's game as well after being ruled out of Tuesday's game earlier. This is positive news for Bryant owners, as foot issues have derailed his season up to this point. We will continue to update Bryant's situation as more information rolls along. Moritz Wagner will continue to see extra run in the meantime.

    Thomas Bryant (sore right foot) will not be available for Tuesday's game.

    Moritz Wagner looked excellent in 24 minutes on Sunday and is an interesting streaming play. Ian Mahinmi could also see more action without Bryant around.

  • Davis Bertans
    F, Washington Wizards

    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.

    Moritz Wagner (left ankle sprain) is available for Monday's matchup with the Warriors.

    Wagner was having a nice season and was a hot pickup when Thomas Bryant got hurt a few months ago, but his poorly timed injury has kept Wagner on the shelf since December 12. We'll see what his role looks like now. Deep-league GMs who have been relying on Ian Mahinmi might want to start making other plans.

    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.
