    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.

    Rui Hachimura (groin contusion/surgery) will be re-evaluated in two weeks.

    Hachimura recently underwent a minor procedure to address the groin injury he sustained on December 16, and this makes him a slightly tougher hold if you're not sitting with some cushion in the standings. Whoever gets back first among Washington's injured frontcourt guys will have a big chance to produce, but it's looking like Hachimura won't be that guy.

    Per Candace Buckner of the Washington Post, Scott Brooks confirmed that Rookie F Rui Hachimura (groin contusion) will remain out for a few more weeks.

    The Wizards frontcourt is decimated right now with Thomas Bryant, Moritz Wagner and Davis Bertans all joining Hachimura on the sidelines. Ian Mahinmi and Anzejs Pasecniks will continue to soak up minutes in the meantime, though Thomas Bryant is inching closer to a return.

    Rui Hachimura (groin contusion) is listed as out for Monday's game against the Heat.

    Hachimura was set to be re-evaluated by Sunday, but we haven't gotten an update. He's getting close to a return, though. Keep an eye on his status as it would not be surprising to see him active in the next one. For now, expect the Wiz' motley crew of street free agents to pick up the slack.

    Rui Hachimura (groin contusion) will not play on Saturday but is set to be re-evaluated in the next one or two days.

    That's a rather promising timeline and it sounds like Hachimura may be able to return somewhat shortly. He's missed the last five games and his return would be a big boost to a thinned-out Wizards team.

    Rui Hachamura (groin contusion) is expected to miss at least the next five games before being re-evaluated when the Wizards return from their road trip.

    The injury-depleted frontcourt of the Wizards takes another blow with this news. Davis Bertans, Ian Mahinmi and the newly signed Anzejs Pasceniks are the only currently healthy big men on the Wizards.

    Davis Bertans scored 17 points on 6-of-11 shooting with four rebounds, three assists, one block and three 3-pointers in 36 minutes on Tuesday vs. the Pistons.

    Bertans grabbed some extra minutes, starting the second half with Rui Hachimura out with a groin contusion. He also had a late dust up with Markieff Morris after getting tossed to the floor as the Wizards were putting this one away. Bertans has been a top-30/10 (8-cat/9-cat) player over the past month. While he has no chance to keep that up, he's a strong play especially while Thomas Bryant is out. Hachimura's night ended with seven points and two rebounds in 17 minutes.

    Rui Hachimura (groin contusion) has been ruled out for the remainder of Monday's game against the Pistons.

    Davis Bertans started the second half for Hachimura, and he should be in line for all the shots he can handle in the depleted Wizards frontcourt.

    Rui Hachimura grabbed a career-high 12 rebounds in addition to 18 points (7-of-16 FGs, 4-of-6 FTs), two assists and a steal in 33 minutes against the Hornets on Tuesday.

    Hachimura has stepped it up a bit lately, especially withThomas Bryant out. He's gone from a borderline standard league player to a mid-round guy over the last few weeks. He's got a few holes in his fantasy game, but his free throw percentage has been spectacular.

    On Sunday, Rui Hachimura went 7-of-7 from the line on his way to 17 points, (5-of-14 FG) along with seven rebounds and four assists.

    It was not Hachimura's greatest night, but he continues to put up numbers for the Wizards who have no problem generating plenty of fantasy stats every day of the week. He is certainly worth a pickup if he is still available in your league.

    Rui Hachimura led the way for the Wizards with 27 points and seven boards on Thursday night in a surprising win over the Sixers.

    Hachimura played well yet again, following up a career-high night on Sunday with two more strong outings. He is going to get boundless opportunity on this high-octane Wizards team especially with Thomas Bryant no longer taking up space in the paint.

  • Moritz Wagner
    PF, Washington Wizards

    Mo Wagner (left ankle sprain) participated in a "light practice" on Wednesday and his status for Thursday's game remains unclear.

    Wagner has missed the last two games with this injury. He should be owned across all formats, especially with the news of Thomas Bryant (right foot stress reaction) being sidelined for at least the next three weeks. If Wagner is unable to play on Thursday, Rui Hachimura and Davis Bertans will likely see more minutes in the frontcourt.
