Troy Brown scored 17 points with eight boards, three dimes, three steals, a block and two triples on Thursday.
Brown had an awful night against the Bucks in his last game, but he bounced back tonight. He shot 5-for-16 from the field which isn't pretty, but the ability to rack up steals to go with his consistent 3-point shooting should give him some room to grow into a valuable asset.

Troy Brown Jr. could barely buy a bucket on Tuesday, shooting a dismal 3-of-15 from the field for nine points, six rebounds, one 3-pointer and three assists.
The Wizards were outclassed in this game, falling for the stifling defense of the Bucks, who still managed to squeeze out the win despite resting over half of their starting five. TBJ has shown some renewed spunk over the NBA restart in Orlando and should play better than this on most nights.

Troy Brown had another decent showing on Sunday, notching 12 points, eight rebounds, four assists, two steals and two 3-pointers.
The Wizards dialed back everyone's minutes but Brown still led the way with 29, and it's clear that he's an important part of the team's future. He's at risk of a rest day or two coming up but if Brown is in Washington's lineup, he belongs in yours too. Rui Hachimura, another important young player for the Wiz, wasn't as helpful today with 11 points and eight boards on 4-of-11 shooting.

Troy Brown Jr. led the Wizards in minutes on Friday with 39 and made good use of his time on the floor, recording 20 points on 6-of-16 shooting, adding 10 rebounds, five dimes, three triples and two steals.
The 37.5 percent shooting from the field tonight was an eye soar, but Brown managed to hit all five of his shots from the line and the 20-10 double-double was a consolation owners definitely appreciated. He's a must-own guy in restart leagues, given the Wizards' injury woes.

The Wizards got a solid performance from Troy Brown Jr., who started again on Wednesday and posted 17 points on 7-of-16 shooting with eight rebounds and four assists.
The scoring was a nice touch, but owners were left wanting as he Brown missed all three shot attempts from deep and failed to record a steal or a block. He's at least consistent with his rebounding and passing peripherals so far since the league restarted, so there's that as a silver lining.

Troy Brown finished with 10 points in 31 minutes, adding eight assists and seven rebounds during Monday's loss to the Pacers.
Brown saw his scoring output fall on Monday, however, he has now handed out a combined 16 assists over the last two games. The Wizards are going to take production wherever they can find it at this stage and Brown appears to be in a prime position to capitalize. Given he averaged only 2.4 assists per game this season, there is reason to think his numbers in that category could regress at some point.

Troy Brown was superb in Sunday's loss to the Nets, scoring 22 points with 10 rebounds, eight assists, a steal and a block in a team-high 38 minutes of action.
We've always liked Brown as an under-the-radar fantasy option because he has the ability to chip in across the box score, and he shouldn't be on any waiver wires after today's outing. He's looking at big minutes and could see a larger scope of responsibilities over the next six games. Washington's loss today puts their playoff hopes on life support and the Wizards have nothing to lose by getting Brown plenty of touches, as they did today. Go scoop him up if he's free.

Troy Brown Jr. dropped a very quiet 15 points on Friday in a loss to the Suns, missing both of his 3-point attempts and picking up one rebound, one assist and one steal in 27 minutes.
Brown went 6-for-11 from the floor. His empty stat line is somewhat surprising, seeing as though there is so much opportunity now in the Wizards offense. His fantasy value was inside the top-150 on the season as of the NBA pause in mid-March. If he maintains his role heading into 2020-21, Brown should remain an on-again, off-again fantasy option next season for the Wizards and coach Scott Brooks (assuming they retain him).

Troy Brown compiled 12 points on 5-of-14 shooting, chipping in eight rebounds and three assists in Monday's scrimmage loss to the Lakers.
Brown was back in action on Monday after missing the previous game due to a mild right thumb sprain. The injury certainly didn't appear to be an issue with Brown playing 29 minutes, second only to Isaac Bonga who played 30 minutes. The Wizards are without a number of their regular pieces meaning Brown could be in for an increased workload heading into the resumption games. He is absolutely worth considering in the later rounds of drafts given the impending minutes distribution.

Troy Brown will return from a mild right thumb sprain on Monday, as he's in the starting lineup for the Wizards' scrimmage finale.
Brown has been a bright spot for Washington since arriving in Orlando and it's nice to see that he's not dealing with anything significant. Feel free to target him in the later rounds of your resumption league drafts, as he's got an interesting stat set and will have plenty of minutes headed his way.

Troy Brown (sprained right thumb) will not play in Saturday's scrimmage, though the injury isn't believed to be serious.
It's a shame, as Brown put together a nice game in Washington's first scrimmage with 12 points, six rebounds, five assists, three steals and a 3-pointer. He'll be a solid late-round selection in resumption leagues with top-100 upside given the high-profile players that won't be suiting up with the Wizards in Orlando.

Along with Rui Hachimura, the Wizards are giving Troy Brown an increased workload for the NBA restart as he scored 12 points in 25 minutes during Wednesday's loss vs. the Nuggets.
Brown took the second-most shots for the Wizards on Wednesday but struggled to hit the trifecta, missing six of his seven opportunities, while he hit four of his six attempts from inside the arc. He added six rebounds, five assists, three steals and two turnovers. Brown is an intriguing late-round target in resumption leagues as he and Hachimura appear to be the top dogs for the Wizards ahead of the NBA restart.

Ian Mahinmi (right groin soreness) will not play in Wednesday's scrimmage against the Nuggets.
The injury is "nothing serious" according to head coach Scott Brooks. The Wizards will have a starting lineup of Shabazz Napier, Isaac Bonga, Troy Brown Jr., Rui Hachimura, and Thomas Bryant. Bryant will have his minutes severely limited at the outset.

Troy Brown posted top-160/145 (8/9-cat) value in the 2019-20 season, averaging 9.7 points, 5.3 rebounds, 2.3 assists, 1.2 steals and 0.8 3-pointers in 24.9 mpg while shooting .453 from the field.
Brown closed his rookie season with a multi-cat bang and was a sleeper target of many hardcore fantasy GMs, but a calf strain got him off to a slow start (it may have cost him a starting spot) and he didn't really get on track til the Wizards were missing multiple regulars. Brown's talent eventually shone through with a top-100 run in January and we're hoping to see some more consistency from him next year.
