Otto Porter (bruised right knee) is questionable for Friday's game vs. the Nets.

Porter got hurt on Monday and the Wizards haven't offered any clarity on the injury, saying only that he's day-to-day. Kelly Oubre has been hot lately and will be a popular DFS option vs. Brooklyn if Porter sits out.
Dec 13 - 7:18 PM

John Wall returned from a one-game absence against the Celtics during a 130-125 overtime loss on Wednesday, scoring 34 points with six rebounds, 13 assists, two steals, one block, one 3-pointer and five turnovers in 41 minutes.

He wasn't bashful in his return, making 14-of-26 from the field and 5-of-8 from the line. Wall did have what looked to be a scary right ankle injury after Kyrie Irving fell on his leg down the stretch, but Wall was able to return after checking out for about two minutes in real time during OT to finish the game. After the game, Wall said he was sore, so this could be something to watch. He'll head to Brooklyn for a Friday game, so we should get an update at shootaround.
Dec 12 - 10:57 PM

Jeff Green scored a season-high 22 points with 10 rebounds, two assists, one steal, one block and two 3-pointers in 45 minutes during a spot start against the Celtics on Wednesday.

Revenge game? This was a stunning line for Green, who averaged just 4.0 points in the previous two starts this season. Otto Porter (knee) was a game-time decision and likely won't be out for long, so there's really no reason to add Green in most formats. Congrats to anyone who streamed or used him in DFS today.
Dec 12 - 10:53 PM

Austin Rivers scored one point with three rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block in 19 minutes off the bench against the Celtics on Wednesday.

He did take a shot to the mouth, but he was fine. Rivers is having a strange season and is just 1-of-2 from the mid-range all year, so credit to him for one of the most unique shot charts in the NBA. While John Wall did get dinged up again today, Rivers won't be worth an add in deeper leagues until we hear if Wall needs to miss time. Leave him on the wire for now.
Dec 12 - 10:50 PM

Kelly Oubre scored 20 points with two rebounds, one block, one steal and three 3-pointers in 38 minutes against the Celtics on Wednesday.

Otto Porter (knee) is hurt yet again, which opened up more run for Oubre. Coach Scott Brooks seems to like Oubre in the second unit with Jeff Green getting the start, but Oubre has found a groove lately. In his last five outings, he's averaged 19.2 points, 4.2 boards, 1.0 blocks, 1.6 steals and 2.2 treys to warrant ownership in standard leagues
Dec 12 - 10:45 PM

Austin Rivers will move back to the bench against the Celtics on Wednesday with John Wall (heel) back.

The Wizards should still have some minutes available for Rivers with Otto Porter out of the lineup. Rivers needs serious volume to have fantasy value, so he's not really worth the trouble in most leagues while Wall is healthy.
Dec 12 - 6:13 PM

Jeff Green will start for Otto Porter (knee) against the Celtics on Wednesday.

Coach Scott Brooks likely wants to keep Kelly Oubre and Markieff Morris together in the second unit here. Green's starts have not gone well this year, averaging just 4.0 points and 4.0 boards in the two starts. Oubre almost certainly will be closing and is the better fantasy play here.
Dec 12 - 6:10 PM

Otto Porter (knee) will not play vs. Boston on Wednesday.

It's been just a nightmare season for Otto, who hasn't been able to stay healthy due to toe issues, leg soreness and now this new knee problem. He is only day-to-day with what sounds like a minor problem, so he should be back for the weekend. Kelly Oubre, Tomas Satoransky and Jeff Green figure to see some extra run tonight.
Dec 12 - 5:56 PM

Otto Porter (right knee contusion) will be a game-time call for Wednesday's matchup with the Celtics.

It's unclear exactly how active Porter was at shootaround, but the Wizards want him to go through his pregame routine before an official decision is made. If he is forced to the sidelines, Kelly Oubre Jr. would be in line for a start and there will be more minutes available for Jeff Green. Stay tuned.
Dec 12 - 5:34 PM

John Wall (heel) will play vs. the Celtics on Wednesday.

He was probable to play in this one after missing Monday night, but Wall was able to go through most of his pre-game work on Monday. He has lost a step this year and perhaps he was playing through issues this month even before sitting out on Monday. His return to the lineup will likely bump Austin Rivers back to the bench.
Dec 12 - 5:19 PM

John Wall (heel) is being listed as probable for Wednesday's game against the Celtics.

Wall sat out Monday's game, but he was able to go through most of his pregame routine, so maybe the heel issue will only end up costing him one game. Scott Brooks said it's something he's been dealing with for years, so we wouldn't be overly concerned here. Check back for another update following Wednesday's shootaround.
Dec 11 - 5:44 PM

Otto Porter (right knee contusion) is questionable to play Wednesday vs. the Celtics.

Porter exited Monday's game with the knee injury and did not return, and it looks like there's a chance he'll miss tomorrow's game. We'll have a better idea on his status after shootaround, but if he is forced to the sidelines, Kelly Oubre Jr. would likely get the start, and there would be more minutes available for Jeff Green.
Dec 11 - 5:42 PM

Otto Porter (knee contusion) is considered day-to-day.

Porter suffered a right knee contusion in Monday's loss to the Pacers. He was ruled out relatively quickly after retreating to the locker room. The Wizards play the Celtics Wednesday, so we should have an update on Porter's status for that contest by Tuesday evening. If Porter is unable to play, Kelly Oubre and Jeff Green will soak up extended minutes.
Dec 11 - 1:18 PM

Coach Scott Brooks said that John Wall (heel) would be a game-time decision for Wednesday's matchup vs. Boston.

Encouragingly, coach Brooks told reporters on Monday night that Wall was able to go through "a lot" of his pregame routine. On Tuesday, Wall took part in the team's walkthrough and got up shots while running sprints with some of the coaching staff. His status for Wednesday's contest will depend on how he feels after pregame warmups. If he is unable to play, Tomas Satoransky and Austin Rivers will again see an uptick in playing time.
Dec 11 - 1:12 PM

Kelly Oubre went off for 23 points, five rebounds, one assist, one block, three steals and one triple in 37 minutes vs. the Pacers on Monday.

This was the perfect storm for Oubre, as John Wall (heel) was out, Otto Porter (knee contusion) left the game early and Tomas Satoransky was in foul trouble. Oubre finished 9-of-14 from the field with a single turnover, but did hit just 4-of-7 from the line. Oubre has been on fire over his last four games with 19.0 points, 4.8 rebounds, 1.0 assists, 1.8 steals and 2.0 triples in that span. He's finally showing some consistency and it makes sense to grab him while the Wizards are so banged up.
