    Troy Brown started again on Wednesday night but turned in a muted line of seven points, two rebounds, five assists and a 3-pointer in 26 minutes of work.

    Brown has started the last two games, and while this is an improvement on Friday's 1-for-8 dud, it's still not what fantasy managers were hoping to see. With the starting job seemingly his to lose, Brown should still be held in competitive formats. He's talented and the Wizards don't (or shouldn't) be looking for reasons to curtail his minutes.

    Troy Brown Jr. shot 1-for-8 from the field as he struggled in a starter's role for the Wizards on Friday, posting three rebounds, six rebounds, one assist, one trey and two steals.

    Brown is in a sweet buy-low position right now. He has a stat set that provides contributions in points, rebounds, assists and steals. He's still getting his legs back after dealing with a left calf strain in the preseason.

    Troy Brown Jr. will get the starting nod on Friday vs. the Cavs.

    This is welcome news for Brown after he only received 17 minutes on Wednesday. Before that stinker, he had three productive games for the Wizards. Isaac Bonga appears a strong candidate to lose minutes to Brown at this point. If he is still available in standard leagues, Brown is worth an add.

    Bonga won't be starting on Friday according to Washington head coach Scott Brooks.

    Bonga started the first seven games of the season but is averaging only 21 minutes. Brooks didn’t say who would replace him. Troy Brown Jr. is the likely candidate to replace him and looked good in limited minutes of the last three games. Bonga isn't someone who should be on your roster in standard leagues, while Brown is worth a look as a young player on a Wizards team with not much to play for this season.

    Troy Brown Jr. was limited to seven points (3-of-9 shooting), two rebounds and one 3-pointer on Wednesday night.

    Brown had a quiet night after recording a double-double in his last appearance. Part of this could be to due C.J. Miles commanding more minutes with his performance tonight. Miles scored 15 points along with two rebounds, three assists, two blocks, and three 3-pointers. Brown is currently a top-100 value and we'd expect him to settle in around the later rounds by season's end.

    Troy Brown Jr. double-doubled in 31 minutes off the bench in a victory over Detroit on Monday, going for 14 points (5-for-10 FGs, 4-for-4 FTs), 10 rebounds, four assists and three steals.

    Brown's line is very encouraging for a young player on a team that will be looking to develop its young talent. That makes two straight games with three steals, too. Another young player that deserves credit for this victory is Moritz Wagner, who provided 12 points, four boards, two steals and three blocks in 22 minutes.

    Troy Brown Jr. looked good in limited minutes in Washington's loss against Houston on Wednesday, scoring 14 points (5-of-7 shooting) to go with three rebounds and two 3-pointers in just 17 minutes.

    The line is rather empty outside the scoring, and it's quite possible that's more a product of the lack of defense played in this game than anything else. Still, it's an encouraging start for a player many speculated had a shot to crack the starting lineup with few other options at SF. That possbility still exists with Isaac Bonga bringing little to the table. He's worth a speculative add in deep leagues.

  • CJ Miles
    SF, Washington Wizards

    CJ Miles will miss Wednesday's game against the Rockets as he continues to rehab from a stress fracture in his left foot.

    Miles is getting closer to a return, but so is Troy Brown, who may take precedence in the rotation given the Wizards' player development focus this season. If given the minutes, Miles can be an intriguing three-point streamer, but he figures to lose minutes to younger players throughout the season.

    CJ Miles (foot stress fracture) is being listed as out for Wednesday's matchup with the Rockets.

    Miles went through a full practice on Monday and is inching closer to a return, but is not quite there yet. The Wizards are suddenly getting healthier with Isaiah Thomas returning on Saturday and Troy Brown Jr. making his season debut on Wednesday. Miles will likely slide into a reserve role on the wing when he is ready to go.

    Troy Brown Jr. (left calf strain) will make his season debut at home against the Rockets on Wednesday.

    Brown was the presumptive starting SF for the Wizards before going down during a workout at the end of September and should have no problems reclaiming that spot from Isaac Bonga. Brown may be eased back in the lineup initially, but he is worth a look at the end of the bench in deeper leagues.

    Troy Brown (left calf strain) was able to practice on Monday, and his status for Wednesday is currently unknown.

    Brown was expected to start at small forward this season before he got hurt, and this return does match the initial four-week timeline that was given in late September. Brown should be added to watch lists in most formats and scooped up in deeper leagues. He shouldn't have a ton of difficulty in getting that starting spot back from Isaac Bonga.

    Injured Wizards Troy Brown (left calf strain) and C.J. Miles (left foot stress fracture) were able to practice "a little bit" on Monday.

    Brown was expected to be out for four weeks as of September 24, so he's trending in the right direction and could be back on the court soon. He's a nice deep-league target and could even get on the standard-league radar if he takes hold of a starting job. The Wizards haven't provided many updates on Miles, so his timeline is far murkier. Even when healthy, he'll only be a 3-point specialist.

    Isaac Bonga (left knee) has been upgraded to questionable for Wednesday's preseason matchup vs. the Guangzhou Long-Lions while C.J. Miles (left foot rehab), Troy Brown (left calf strain), Isaiah Thomas (left thumb rehab), John Wall (left Achilles rehab) and Ian Mahinmi (right Achilles strain) all remain out.

    Bonga may carve out a role for the Wizards if he is able to get healthy. At this time, he needs to show something to enter the fantasy landscape.

  • Davis Bertans
    F, Washington Wizards

    Davis Bertans came off the bench in Monday's loss to the Knicks and scored nine points, all on threes, in 19 minutes.

    Nine of Bertans' 10 shots were from deep, and he also added four rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block tonight. Some have been hoping that with Troy Brown out that Bertans could start, but that role went to Justin Anderson tonight. This performance it about in line with what Bertans provided last season, and unless he can snag some more minutes, he may not be much more than a 3-point streamer.

  • Admiral Schofield
    PG, Washington Wizards

    Admiral Schofield (right hamstring) hobbled out of practice grabbing his hamstring on Thursday.

    Schofield's status will be updated soon, and we can only hope it is something minor. The Wizards are already without C.J Miles and Troy Brown Jr. and can't afford another loss on the wings. Schofield has the chance to start when the season opens.
