Daniel Gafford News
Washington Wizards center Daniel Gafford has reached a three-year, $40.2 million extension with the organization. The young center was logjammed in Chicago, but he should have a significant role in Washington. Gafford is expected to be the starting center heading into the regular season. Thomas Bryant and Montrezl Harrell should be in the mix as well, but they shouldn't take away from Gafford. He'll be worth a late-round pick in most fantasy formats.
The Washington Wizards will get small/power forward Davis Bertans and center Daniel Gafford (ankle) back for Monday's contest versus the Jazz, but both will face minutes restrictions. Bertans appears to have settled into a sweet spot of 22-26 minutes off of the bench while remaining a long-range marksman, whereas Gafford has averaged just 15 minutes in his three contests since joining D.C. Having knocked down multiple threes in each of his last four appearances, Bertans is by far the more appealing fantasy asset of the two, although both can likely be avoided in DFS formats due to their anticipated minutes limits.
Washington Wizards center Daniel Gafford (ankle) has been ruled out for Tuesday's game against the Hornets. The recently-acquired Gafford suffered the ankle sprain during Monday's game and couldn't return to the contest. He experienced some swelling postgame, which likely prompted the team to rest him for the second half of the back-to-back. Gafford's absence should mean more opportunities for Alex Len and Robin Lopez in the frontcourt. Len has had some solid games when he's seen increased run this year.
Washington Wizards center Daniel Gafford (ankle) was forced to exit early during Monday's game against the Indiana Pacers. He was going up for a rebound and came down on Pacers' guard Edmond Sumner's foot and tweaked his ankle. It didn't look pretty and Gafford will surely have an MRI soon. He finished the game with 11 points, six rebounds, and two blocks in 15 minutes. It's a shame because Gafford was playing fairly well in Washington. Robin Lopez and Alex Len would likely be asked to soak up the extra playing time, assuming Gafford misses time. Neither of them are reliable enough to warrant adding in standard formats.
