Thomas Bryant was generally quiet in Thursday's win but showed up when it mattered, getting credit for the game-winning bucket on a goaltending call against the Knicks in London.
Bryant only had 10 points, nine rebounds and a block, but then again he did that in just 16 minutes — Washington got off to a horrible start and smaller bench groups got them back in it. He's still a must-own and must-start guy, in case you were wondering.

Thomas Bryant logged 34 minutes in Sunday's double-overtime loss, going 8-of-13 from the field to finish with 18 points while adding 11 rebounds, two assists, a steal, two blocks and a 3-pointer.
Bryant gave the Wizards good energy down the stretch and grabbed seven of their 18 offensive rebounds on the day, which helped them claw back late in regulation. The sophomore remains a middle-round value over the last two weeks and needs to be in all lineups even though Scott Brooks will probably yank his minutes around again soon.

Thomas Bryant had 11 points, one triple, five rebounds and a block in Friday's victory over the visiting Bucks.
Bryant only played 24 minutes which was a disappointment considering he only had one personal foul. He's been a mid-round play over the last two weeks and a top-100 play over the last two months so if an impatient owner dropped him, he should be added ASAP. It doesn't hurt that the Wizards have a fantastic schedule to finish the year.

Thomas Bryant played just 14 minutes on Wednesday night, notching nine points, six rebounds, a steal and a 3-pointer in the process.
Bryant has seen his playing time dip lately as the Wizards have been in a run of games against big-bodied centers, but he's still been a middle-round player over the last month. We wouldn't sweat the fact that he's averaged 19.0 mpg over his last four.

Thomas Bryant started as usual and scored nine points on 3-of-5 shooting (1-of-1 from deep, 2-of-2 from the line) with three rebounds, one steal and one block over 18 minutes in Tuesday's loss to the Sixers.
Bryant has raised his season-long value into the late-round range and he has been a top 45-75 value (9/8 cat) over the last month in just 23.6 mpg. Scott Brooks went to Ian Mahinmi for 17 minutes and put up a nice line with 10 points, seven boards, five assists, one steal and two blocks, but nobody around the team is expecting Mahinmi to take the ball and run with it. Bryant's role is only going to grow going forward and he's a must-start player right now.

Thomas Bryant scored 14 points with seven rebounds on 6-of-8 shooting in 21 minutes as the Wizards got a blowout win against the Thunder on Sunday.
He is continuing the trend of being a must-own player, and now that Markieff Morris is out for six weeks his value should continue to trend toward the early rounds. He is just outside the top-50 over the past month and inside the top-35 over the past two weeks. His backup, Ian Mahimni, got in on the fun in this one as he had nine points, 10 rebounds and four defensive stats in 25 minutes. This was more of a fluke game for Mahimni, but expect consistent good performances from Bryant going forward.

Thomas Bryant got hit with two fouls in the first three minutes of Friday's game against the Heat, and finished with 10 points on 5-of-7 shooting and five rebounds in 23 minutes.
Bryant got hit with some ticky-tack fouls and when he returned he was solid and aggressive, showing deft touch and shot-making ability for a big. He missed a point blank shot later in the fourth quarter that tempted Scott Brooks to go with Jeff Green down the stretch and the Wiz down big, which might not be a one-time thing. Bryant has to polish up his game he's just 23 years old with 43 NBA games under his belt, but the Wizards need him, he's answering the call and he's trending toward mid-round value as a must-own player.

Thomas Bryant put up 16 points with 15 rebounds on 5-of-7 shooting in a win over the Hawks on Wednesday.
He is a top-20 value over the past two weeks, so he should be owned in all formats at this point. The Wizards are in teardown mode right now, so Bryant is in no real threat to lose his spot as the starting center. If he is somehow available in your league, go pick him up immediately as he will have middle-round value at least for the rest of the season.

Thomas Bryant was a dominant force for the Wizards on Saturday, recording 21 points on 9-of-13 shooting with 10 rebounds, three assists and one block.
He may have had his fair share of ups and downs recently but Bryant is definitely still trending up overall. As long as Dwight Howard and Markieff Morris are on the mend, Bryant can and will be a double-double threat, depending on the matchup.
