Player News - Wizards

Bradley Beal powered a massive comeback vs. the Knicks on Wednesday with 36 points on 14-of-22 shooting, seven assists, five rebounds, three steals and two blocks.

The Knicks led by 27 points in this game, but Beal caught fire to help the Wizards earn a 39-15 advantage in the third quarter. In the process, Beal became the youngest player in NBA history to hit 800 career threes, and he's simply a usage monster while John Wall (knee) is out of the equation.

Tomas Satoransky (concussion) had multiple career-highs on Wednesday with 11 assists and three blocks, adding nine points, four rebounds and one 3-pointer in 33 minutes.

Satoransky survived a scary fall on Saturday, which is great news for a Wizards team still seeking PG help while John Wall (knee) recuperates. Even if they do bring back a veteran to fill out the rotation, it shouldn't impact Satoransky, who has a stranglehold on the starting job until Wall returns.
Feb 14 - 11:03 PM

Markieff Morris (illness) returned to action on Wednesday with 13 points, seven rebounds and three assists in a huge comeback vs. the Knicks.

Morris logged 25 minutes after sitting out Saturday's game with the illness. He rarely jumps off the stat sheet but has quietly regained mid-round roto value over the past month, averaging 12.4 points (47.1% FGs, 84.6% FTs), 1.1 triples, 6.3 boards, 2.5 assists, 1.3 steals and 0.5 blocks. You could do far worse in most leagues.

Ian Mahinmi (illness) came off the bench for 17 points, eight rebounds, three blocks and one steal in 26 minutes during Wednesday's road win in New York.

The Wizards' reserve big man doesn't typically have fantasy appeal while Marcin Gortat is healthy. He outplayed Gortat tonight, though, and coach Scott Brooks rewarded him with big minutes -- Mahinmi managed to tie his season-highs in scoring and blocks, while falling one shy in rebounds. It's a welcome sight for the Wizards, but we're not buying it for fantasy purposes.
Feb 14 - 11:01 PM

Ian Mahinmi (illness) will play Wednesday vs. the Knicks, as expected.

Mahinmi wasn't able to make it through Saturday's game due to the illness, but he's had plenty of time to rest up, and should be in his regular 15-minute role tonight. He's not worth owning in most leagues.
Feb 14 - 6:11 PM

Markieff Morris (illness) will play Wednesday against the Knicks.

He did not play on Saturday and was also held out of practice on Monday. Morris was also on the injury report last week for a hand injury, so hopefully the time off got him right there. His return will take minutes away from Mike Scott while Kelly Oubre should still play a bunch. Morris should be owned in standard leagues.
Feb 14 - 6:10 PM

Ian Mahinmi (illness) is expected to play Wednesday vs. the Knicks.

Mahinmi left Saturday's game early due to illness but was able to practice fully on Monday. Mahinmi will likely log his typical 15 minutes on Wednesday. He can be left on waivers in standard fantasy formats.
Feb 14 - 1:42 PM

Markieff Morris (illness) is expected to play Wednesday vs. the Knicks.

Morris was unable to practice on Monday, after sitting out Saturday's game. However, it appears he is on track to return to action on Wednesday. Check back prior to tip for confirmation. Kelly Oubre will likely get bumped back to the bench.
Feb 14 - 1:36 PM

Tomas Satoransky (concussion) will be available to play Wednesday vs. the Knicks.

Satoransky was injured Saturday night, crashing to the floor after a flagrant foul. However, he avoided a concussion and is ready to pick up where he left off (he poured in a career-high 25 points on Saturday). Tim Frazier (nose) has been ruled out of Wednesday's game, so Satoransky will see all the minutes he can handle on Wednesday. The risk of re-injury is a concern, but he will still be a very popular DFS target tonight.
Feb 14 - 1:23 PM

Markieff Morris (illness) is listed as questionable for Wednesday's game vs. the Knicks.

Morris sat out Saturday's game and was unable to practice on Monday. Kelly Oubre would be the primary beneficiary if Morris is ruled out on Wednesday. Oubre had 11 points, eight rebounds, three assists, one block and three triples when Morris sat on Saturday.

Tomas Satoransky (concussion) is listed as questionable for Wednesday's game vs. New York.

Coach Scott Brooks said on Tuesday that Satoransky's status for Wednesday's game was uncertain, as Satoransky needs to pass a second round of concussion testing. The Wizards indicated they will provide an update on his status this afternoon. Tim Frazier (nose) has already been ruled out of Wednesday's game, so Satoransky will see all the minutes he can handle if he is cleared to play.

Jason Smith (illness) has been ruled out of Wednesday's game vs. the Knicks.

Minimal fantasy impact here, as Smith is not a part of the Wizards regular rotation.

Tim Frazier (nose) has been ruled out of Wednesday's game vs. New York.

Frazier underwent surgery on Sunday after he suffered a nasal fracture in Saturday' win over the Bulls. No word yet on how long Frazier will be sidelined going forward. Fortunately, this is Washington's final game before the All-Star break. We are still awaiting an update on Tomas Satoransky, who has to be cleared out of concussion protocol after a nasty fall Saturday night. The Wizards could be dangerously thin at point guard Wednesday vs. the Knicks.

John Wall and Marcin Gortat met privately last week to confront each other about where they stood with one another, according to Chris Hayes of ESPN.

After a victory over the Raptors back on Feb. 1, the team's third straight win with Wall sidelined due to knee surgery, Gortat tweeted: "Great 'team' victory." Last week, during an appearance on SportsCenter, Wall replied, "It was more just shock to hear it from him, understanding he gets the most assists from me and the most spoon-fed baskets ever." Per the ESPN report: "The meeting, which didn't last long, facilitated the airing of grievances, but sources say there is still more work to be done to fully repair that relationship."

Former Bucks PG Brandon Jennings has been signed by the G League's Wisconsin Herd.

Wisconsin had the No. 1 waiver claim so we're not reading into the fact that they're the Bucks' affiliate. Jennings most recently played in China for the Shanxi Brave Dragons, averaging 27.8 points on 47.1% shooting, 6.8 assists and 5.1 rebounds. Even if he is called up from the G League, it would require a perfect situation for him to have fantasy value.
