  • Trevor Ariza - F - Washington Wizards

    Despite leaving Houston, joining one of the worst teams in the league and being traded mid-season, Trevor Ariza (left groin strain) finished the season with top-90 value.

    That groin injury kept him out of the season’s final seven games as well as 10 of the last 11. Ariza played 23 games for the Suns before finishing the year with 46 games in Washington. He’s certainly in the decline phase of his career and saw his 3-point effectiveness dip to just .334 from behind the arc, though he still more or less delivered for fantasy owners with 12.5 points, 5.4 rebounds, 3.7 assists, 1.3 steals and 2.1 triples per game. It’s worth pointing out that he actually scored 14.1 points per game with the Wizards, so perhaps a reunion would be good news for his fantasy stock. Ariza also averaged 1.5 turnovers this season, his first time over 0.9 per game in the last two seasons, wiping out the gap between his 8- and 9-cat values. Still, Ariza’s fantasy game figures to age gracefully and he’ll be a late-middle round contributor until the steals really dip.

    Trevor Ariza (left groin strain) will not play on Tuesday.

    Ariza's season was reported to be over, but we'll keep giving you updates until the Wizards say something officially. Troy Brown Jr. will keep on starting.

    Trevor Ariza (strained left groin) is likely to miss the rest of the season.

    Ariza's continued absence should play out similiarly to how it has been over the past few games. Bobby Portis and Troy Brown Jr. should continue to start while Jabari Parker sees ample minutes off the bench and Jeff Green is sprinkled in. The trio of Portis, Brown and Parker all have safe floors with nice upside. The Wizards' next game is at home on Wednesday against a depleted Bulls team. Parker and Portis get one more revenge game before the season comes to a close.

    Trevor Ariza (strained left groin) has been ruled out ahead of Sunday's game against the Nuggets.

    Ariza has missed the last two games and it's unlikely we'll see him again this year. Bobby Portis should continue to start alongside Thomas Bryant, while Troy Brown Jr.'s starting small forward spot is safe as well. The first two are must-start options with Brown and his volume making some sense in deeper formats or streaming scenarios. Jabari Parker, also a must-start player, gets a more stable floor too.

    The Wizards are listing Trevor Ariza (strained left groin) as out for Wednesday's game vs. The Suns.

    With Ariza out, Troy Brown Jr. will likely slide into his starting role. In addition to Brown, Jabari Parker, Jeff Green and Bobby Portis are all in line to see extra minutes and a few more shots. Both the Suns and Wizards are in the bottom four in defensive effincieny making this a game to target on a small DFS slate.

    Trevor Ariza (groin) did not return to Tuesday's game against the Lakers after just seven minutes of action.

    Ariza returned from a two-game absence tonight but only made it through seven minutes after re-aggravating his left groin issue. With the Wiz having nothing to play for we'd be shocked if he returns to the game, and frankly Ariza should be done for the season. His night will end with six points and a 3-pointer.

    Trevor Ariza (sore left groin) will return from a two-game absence and start on Tuesday night, pushing Bobby Portis to the bench against the Lakers.

    Ariza returns surprisingly quickly, especially given Washington's spot in the standings, so you can feel free to scoop him up in all leagues where he may have been dropped by an owner that was quick on the trigger. Both he and Portis will be worth starting in all leagues, however, and you should at least wait until we see how things shake out tonight before making a call on BP. Jabari Parker and Troy Brown should also be affected by Ariza's return.

    Trevor Ariza (left groin strain) is doubtful to play on Tuesday against the Lakers.

    The Wizards haven't shut Ariza down just yet but that looks to be where things are heading. Troy Brown will continue to start in his place and is worth a look in deep leagues, while Ariza is fairly safe to drop in most formats.

    Trevor Ariza (left groin strain) will not play in Saturday's game against the Heat.

    Ariza didn't participate in morning shootaround and was listed as doubtful. He might be done for the season with the Wizards just about toast in the playoff race. Troy Brown should continue to start and log 30-plus minutes with regularity, so he's at least worth keeping an eye on in deeper formats.

    Trevor Ariza (strained left groin) was not a participant in morning shootaround on Saturday.

    The Wizards take on the Heat on Saturday so it is highly doubtful that Ariza suits up and there is a decent chance he gets shut down for the season. Troy Brown Jr. picked up the start last game and put up 13 points, five rebounds, three assists and no other stats in 33 minutes. He could be given ample run to close the season but hasn't shown enough to be considered outside of very deep leagues for now.

    Trevor Ariza (strained left groin) has been ruled out on Thursday night and Troy Brown Jr. will make his first career start in Ariza's place.

    Ariza could very well be done for the season with Washington pretty much out of the playoff race, though he's still being regarded as day-to-day for now. Brown started the second half in Ariza's place on Wednesday and has climbed from DNP-CD to the team's sixth man as he finishes his season strong. He delivered nine points, 10 rebounds, a steal and a three in 30 minutes last night and is worth a look in deep leagues.

    Trevor Ariza (strained left groin) is doubtful to face the Nuggets on Thursday after leaving Wednesday's game against the Bulls.

    The Wizards have one of the deepest forward rotations in the league with Jabari Parker, Jeff Green, Bobby Portis, Troy Brown Jr. and even Wesley Johnson all looking to pick up extra minutes. Parker is the best of the bunch, but Brown, who started the second half in place of Ariza, is worth a deep-league add as the most likely available player of the lot in your league.

    Trevor Ariza has been diagnosed with a left groin strain and will not return to Wednesday's game vs. the Bulls.

    Ariza ends the night with six points, two rebounds, two 3s and two assists in 14 minutes of action. Troy Brown started the second half in his stead. Brown is an intriguing pickup in deep leagues should Ariza be forced to miss time.
