    Thomas Bryant (right foot stress reaction) is being listed as questionable and will be a game-time decision for Sunday's game against the Jazz.

    Bryant has been out since the start of December with a stress reaction in his right foot. The Wizards were right to hold him out for as long as they did, given the track record with big men suffering stress reactions in that area. Bryant figures to slot back into the starting center spot upon his return, but it bears mentioning that his minutes were down throughout November and the team will likely put him on a minutes limit until he gets back up to speed. He's still a buy-low candidate as a high-floor, roto-friendly big man on a team lacking talent, but you may have to wait a bit until he starts returning value.

    Thomas Bryant (right foot stress reaction) is being listed as out ahead of Wednesday's game against the Magic.

    Bryant was assigned to the G League around five days ago to continue his rehab process. He seems to be getting closer to a return, but it is still up in the air as to when that will be. The big man will get every opportunity to contribute on a bad Wizards team down the stretch.

    Thomas Bryant (right foot stress reaction) has been assigned to the G League as part of his rehab.

    Thankfully, he avoided a more severe stress reaction in his foot, since these types of injuries could extend to months of missed playing time. Bryant comes back at a great time with the Wiz missing a lot of key rotation players and Beal showing signs of the wheels falling off. He was a bit of a buy low before his injury and the window will close in the near future. Get some offers in for Bryant, as he's poised for a big finish as a roto-friendly, starting center on the highest-paced team in the league.

    Thomas Bryant (right foot stress reaction) will not play in Monday's game vs. the Heat and might miss another week of action.

    Bryant was said to miss three weeks and after this report he might be missing five. Ian Mahinmi will continue to start in Bryant's absence but hopefully he'll be able to make his way back onto the court soon.

    On Friday, Scott Brooks said that Thomas Bryant (right foot stress reaction) is "still some time away" from returning to the court.

    When the injury was announced the Wizards said that Bryant would miss at least three weeks, and we're approaching the start of week No. 4 with Bryant still needing more time. Fantasy managers just have to keep holding on. Moe Wagner is still out as well, which means he's missing a fantastic opportunity to put up numbers, as are Davis Bertans and Rui Hachimura. Ian Mahinmi and Anzejs Pasecniks will continue to hold the center spot, and minimal fantasy appeal. That said, Bryant himself said he feels good and thinks he's close to a return. We'll see.

    Thomas Bryant (right foot stress reaction) has shed his walking boot.

    Bryant was set to be re-evaluated in three weeks when the injury was initially announced on December 3, so it sounds like he might return shortly after Christmas. For what it's worth, Wizards beat writer Chris Miller said that Bryant and Jordan McRae (finger surgery) are the "closest to returning." That certainly makes it sound like Moe Wagner (ankle) will be out for a while longer.

    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.

  • Rui Hachimura
    PF, Washington Wizards

    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.

    Ian Mahinmi (strained right Achilles) will be available for Thursday's game against the Sixers

    Mahinmi hasn't played so far this season but with the injury to Thomas Bryant (right foot stress reaction), the Wizards will be pleased to have another big body to eat up some minutes. Mahinmi could have some sneaky value in the short-term but will have a difficult matchup on Thursday going against Joel Embiid and Al Horford of the Sixers.

    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.

    Ian Mahinmi (strained right Achilles) has been upgraded to questionable ahead of Thursday's matchup vs. the Sixers.

    The Wizards are in need of some frontcourt help after Thomas Bryant (right foot stress reaction) was ruled out for at least the next three weeks. Mahinmi could actually be streamable if he ends up playing on Thursday as Mo Wagner is also questionable with an ankle sprain.

    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.

    Thomas Bryant has been diagnosed with a right foot stress reaction and will miss at least the next three weeks.

    This is a huge blow to the Wizards and fantasy owners alike, as Bryant has been a top-80 player in 9/8 cat leagues this season. With Bryant out, Moritz Wagner becomes a must-own guy, while Rui Hachimura and Davis Bertans should see extra minutes as well.

    Moritz Wagner (left ankle sprain) has been ruled out of Sunday's game versus the Clippers.

    Rui Hachimura and Davis Bertans should see a few extra minutes, while Thomas Bryant holds down the center position. All three guys are worth looking at in DFS, as the Clippers tend to be vulnerable in the paint.

    Thomas Bryant got thumped in Friday's loss to the Lakers, lasting 22 minutes on the floor and posting five points, five rebounds and three assists.

    Bryant isn't quite the defender that most people seem to think he is and was predictably exposed in a matchup that's gotten the better of far superior players. Shake it off and expect more of the usual from Bryant going forward. Moe Wagner also had a bad time, going 1-of-9 from the field, but at least came away with eight boards, a steal and a block. Surprisingly, he's been a standard-league asset this year and should remain the same going forward.
