Moritz Wagner News
Free-agent forward/center Moritz Wagner has agreed to a two-year deal to return to the Orlando Magic. Wagner will play alongside his brother, Franz Wagner, who was selected with the eighth overall pick in the 2021 NBA draft. After bouncing between several clubs last season, including Washington and Boston, the 24-year-old averaged 11.0 points, 4.9 boards and shot 37.2 percent from deep throughout 11 games in Orlando. Although he shouldn't be considered an everyday fantasy option, he still has appeal in deeper leagues, regardless of format. His stock will rise even higher this season if he gets a run as a member of the starting lineup, which is possible over an 82-game grind.
Orlando Magic center Moritz Wagner posted his first double-double in a Magic jersey in Tuesday night's loss to the Milwaukee Bucks. Wagner scored 17 points to go along with a season-high 13 rebounds. He shot 6-for-13 from the field and 2-for-4 from three-point range in the game. Wagner has scored in double-digits in five of his six games this month. Mo Bamba was sidelined for this game due to a non-COVID illness, which helped Wagner reach 28 minutes in the game, though he's been regularly playing over 20 minutes each night. Next up for Wagner and the Magic is a game against the Atlanta Hawks on Thursday.
Washington Wizards center Moritz Wagner played his best game of the season in a 135-116 loss to the Clippers on Tuesday. Wagner scored a season-high 21 points with seven rebounds and five assists while draining a three-pointer in 25 minutes. The 23-year-old has only averaged 14.2 minutes per game, though that number should definitely creep up after a performance like this. Wagner is a potential goldmine for fantasy if he keeps starting, as he's averaging 17.9 points, 7.7 rebounds, 3.4 assists, 1.5 steals, and 1.0 triples per-36 minutes. He'll face a tough test on Thursday against MVP candidate Nikola Jokic and the Nuggets. However, Wagner is worth a pickup in season-long leagues and worth consideration in DFS formats moving forward if he can stay in the starting five.
Washington Wizards forward/center Moritz Wagner will make the start Sunday against the Boston Celtics, replacing Alex Len in the starting lineup. Len is not injured, so this looks like a shake up of the lineup by head coach Scott Brooks which would bode well for Wagner's value if he continues to keep this role. Wagner does not offer much defensively, but has the most offensive upside of the Washington centers. Still, this can be treated as a wait-and-see approach as Wagner has played more than five minutes just once in his past six games, including three DNP-CDs over that stretch.
