    F, Washington Wizards

    Davis Bertans (sore right knee) will not play during Monday's game.

    Bertans scored 22 points in 37 minutes on Sunday but will miss the second half of the back-to-back. Without him, Rui Hachimura is in a good spot for a big night versus the Bucks.

    Rui Hachimura was serviceable against the Bulls on Sunday, dropping 10 points, eight rebounds, four assists, one steal and four turnovers.

    Hachimura has a decent opportunity in front of him to close out the season for the Wizards and makes sense as an end-of-the-roster option in standard leagues. His role as the second option is stable, and if Bradley Beal were to miss games he would have even more upside.

    Rui Hachimura was a solid performer for the Wizards on Friday, chipping in 17 points on 7-of-13 shooting, plus seven rebounds, one triple, three dimes and two steals.

    Hachimura has been playing well as of late and figures to have a strong finish this season as the team's second scoring option behind Bradley Beal. We like the trey, boards and steals tonight and as long as he keeps those peripherals going a top-120 finish in 2019-20 might be a realistic expectation

    Rui Hachimura had the most defensive stats of his season on Tuesday with two steals and two blocks in 32 minutes in a win over the Bulls, while also going for 20 points (7-of-12 FGs, 6-of-6 FTs), four rebounds and three assists.

    Hachimura hasn't done much outside of points, rebounds and percentages this season, so it's notable when he grabs some steals and blocks. The rookie has the opportunity put up some nice numbers if he can add something to his game.

    Scott Brooks said that both Rui Hachimura and Moritz Wagner will be available to play for Tuesday and Wednesday's back-to-back set, but they will have their minutes monitored.

    It makes sense as both players missed significant time dealing with injuries not too long ago. With Thomas Bryant out of action, they'll still see heavy usage in the frontcourt. There should be extra minutes for Davis Bertans and Ian Mahinmi with this news.

    Rui Hachimura put up 12 points (5-of-13 FG, 1-of-2 FT), 11 rebounds and one 3-pointer on Sunday against the Grizzlies.

    Another decent day of work from Hachimura, who has now had three useful outings since returning from his groin injury. His game is not setting the world on fire, but the Wizards want to develop him during the second half of the season, and Hachimura has the ability to put up double-doubles with 3-pointers when given the opportunity.

    Rui Hachimura had a solid outing on Friday, helping push the Wizards to a 119-118 win over the Mavs with 17 points (7-of-12 shooting), six boards, one assist, two 3s and two steals.

    Since returning from his groin injury, Hachimura has scene his value arrow point upward. Given that the Wizards have nothing to play for this season, Hachimura's development will be one of the team's top priorities. He's someone to watch (and add if possible) for a strong second half.

    Rui Hachimura (groin) will be available to play in Monday's game.

    Big news for the Wizards, who will get their talented rookie back from a 23-game absence after a groin contusion ultimately required a surgical procedure. Expect some minutes restrictions for a bit, but he could definitely close the year with a bang and is a nice add in most formats because of the opportunity headed his way.

    Rui Hachimura (groin surgery) has been ruled out of Saturday's game versus the Nets.

    Hachimura is close to returning, but he is expected to have a hard minutes limit upon his return. He's worth an end of bench flier if he's available on waivers, but it's going to take a few games before Hachimura gets enough minutes for standard league value.

    Rui Hachimura (groin surgery) is questionable to face the Nets on Saturday.

    This is where we expected him to land after hearing Hachimura has a chance to appear on Saturday. Exercise some patience as Hachimura is about to turn the corner on his comeback, and it is worth seeing if he can start to round out his fantasy game as his rookie season progresses in Washington.

    Rui Hachimura (groin surgery) had "a good practice" on Friday and has a chance to return for Saturday's game against the Nets.

    So much for Hachimura having "a great chance of coming back" on Saturday, as Scott Brooks so enthusiastically declared yesterday. With Brooks noncommittal about Hachimura's availability, fantasy managers have no choice but to await another report prior to game time. That said, he has very low fantasy appeal now that the Wizards are nearing full healthy. Aside from a few scoring outbursts, Hachimura is still averaging a woeful 0.4 threes, 1.6 assists and 0.1 blocks on the season, which was always the concern with his monotone statistical profile.

    According to head coach Scott Brooks, Rui Hachimura (groin contusion/surgery) "has a great chance of coming back Saturday night" vs. the Nets

    Hachimura has missed the last 21 games after injuring his groin and having a minor surgery to help repair the injury. After being cleared for "all activities" last week, Hachimura appears on the verge of a return. Continue to monitor for updates but expect a return in the next week. Hachimura's return could negatively impact the fantasy values of Troy Brown Jr. and Isaac Bonga. It is worth noting that Hachimura will likely be on a minutes restriction whenever he is cleared to play.

    Rui Hachimura (groin contusion/surgery) has been cleared for "all activities" but will need to work back into game shape.

    Wizards head coach Scott Brooks said: "It’ll be great to have him back before the All-Star break, but you never know.” Hachimura has been out since mid-December, but at least this is a step in the right direction. Hachimura has averaged 13.9 points and 5.8 rebounds this season.

    Rui Hachimura (groin contusion/surgery) was able to do some "light work" at Sunday's practice.

    Hachimura still isn't practicing but we'll take any progress we can get at this point. The rookie was on his way to a nice season before this setback, and it's sounding like he'll be able to return to the court in February.

    According to head coach Scott Brooks, Rui Hachimura's (groin contusion/surgery) ability to return before February is up in the air.

    Hachimura still intrigues as he will receive a healthy dose of minutes whenever he is able to play for the Wizards. He needs to grow his game beyond points and rebounds, but the opportunity will be there, and if Hachimura can get a semi-component 3-point shot he will be in business as a standard league asset.
