Wizards

The Wizards are able to be more effective in half-court sets, and in the final two minutes of games, without Bradley Beal.
The Wizards corrected some of the mistakes they made in the opener, have Nene back and are starting to realize how high their ceiling can be with Paul Pierce.
The Wizards allowed another opponent to shoot better than 50 percent, but they kept their turnovers down and relied on Paul Pierce when they needed a basket most.

Wizards - Team News
Glen Rice Jr. - G/F
Glen Rice Jr. (ankle) returned to action on Thursday with 14 minutes, five points, one rebound... He backed up Garrett Temple, who played well tonight. Rice has too many holes on defense and issues with his shot selection, so he's not going to have fantasy value.

Marcin Gortat - C
Marcin Gortat looked great during a 105-98 win over the Magic on Thursday with 20 points, 12... He did have a minor ankle tweak tonight, but stayed in the game. Gortat was no match for the Magic on the low block, making 10-of-13 from the field. He's going to be a...

Otto Porter - F
Otto Porter committed five fouls in his 18 minutes of action against the Magic on Thursday with... He's had some fouling issues before and tonight was one of his worst. Porter has been playing well and he should normally get minutes in the mid 20s while Bradley Beal...
Oct 30 10:31PM Read More
Paul Pierce - F
Paul Pierce started slow due to foul trouble and was still able to finish with 16 points, four... He hit two very clutch back-to-back fadeaway jumpers to help put the game away. Pierce's minutes have been higher than originally expected with 33 in the opener. He's...
Oct 30 10:28PM Read More
Nene Hilario - F/C
Nene played 34 minutes in his season debut against the Magic on Thursday with 12 points, four... He's always been an adept passer and contributes in steals, so the guard-like line isn't a surprise. Nene should be able to put up late-round value while he's healthy.
Oct 30 10:23PM Read More
John Wall - G
John Wall turned it on down the stretch in Thursday's 105-98 win over the Magic with 30 points,... He took it to Elfrid Payton tonight and had everything working. Wall had some turnover issues in the season debut, but he kept those down to just two tonight. No player had...
Oct 30 10:21PM Read More
Nene Hilario - F/C
Nene (suspension) is back in the starting lineup for the Wizards on Thursday. This is just a reminder that Nene is back from his suspension and taking his rightful starting place in the lineup. Drew Gooden will head back to the bench.
Oct 30 6:52PM Read More
John Wall - G
John Wall said he turned the ball over "too much" in a loss to the Heat on Wednesday. Wall had 16 points and 11 assists, but he also had six turnovers. He's going to have to do even more without Bradley Beal (wrist) in the lineup, but he can't afford to turn...

Paul Pierce - F
Paul Pierce said he wants the Wizards to establish an identity after their season opening loss... The Wizards were outrebounded 44-38 as they played without the suspended Nene and DeJuan Blair. "That fourth quarter, it was our worst defensive quarter," Pierce...
Oct 30 12:48PM Read More
Glen Rice Jr. - G/F
Glen Rice didn't play in Wednesday's opener for the Wizards. He's got an ankle problem and while he was expected to play, he never got off the bench. He's worth keeping an eye on when healthy, as he could start at shooting guard until...
Oct 30 12:38AM Read More
Otto Porter - F
Otto Porter came off the bench for 13 points, four rebounds, a steal and a 3-pointer on 4-of-7... Paul Pierce played well and Porter might have a tough time matching tonight's 24 minutes once Bradley Beal is healthy.
Oct 30 12:36AM Read More
Kris Humphries - F/C
Kris Humphries, who has been out with a finger injury, played 13 minutes off the bench and hit... Keep an eye on him, but the days of him having fantasy value are probably over.
Oct 30 12:35AM Read More
Garrett Temple - G
Garrett Temple started at shooting guard for the banged up Wizards on Wednesday and had six... He might get some decent run as long as Bradley Beal and Glen Rice Jr. are out for the Wiz. Beal is going to miss a few weeks, but Rice should be back on the court soon,...
Oct 30 12:34AM Read More
John Wall - G
John Wall hit 6-of-13 shots and zero 3-pointers for 16 points, three rebounds, 11 assists and... Wall kicks things off with a double-double and should do a more effective job of scoring on most nights.
Oct 30 12:31AM Read More
Marcin Gortat - C
Marcin Gortat had 18 points, seven rebounds and a block in Wednesday's opening loss to the... This line wouldn't normally get a blurb, but it's opening night, so what the heck. He's a solid fantasy center in all formats.
