Washington Wizards Roster
- Eastern Southeast
- Capital One Arena
Washington Wizards forward Deni Avdija saw his fourth start in a row on Tuesday and produced another high-quality stat line. The 22-year-old registered 25 points, 10 rebounds, five assists, and one steal on 10-for-16 shooting. He also added two made threes and went 3-for-5 from the line. Avdija first scored this new career high of 25 points earlier this season, then replicated it during the blowout win over the Celtics. Over the last week, he's ranked 77th in nine-category leagues.
Washington Wizards center Kristaps Porzingis led all scorers on Tuesday as the team dropped 130 points and grabbed a 19-point victory over the Boston Celtics. The 27-year-old ended the game with 32 points, 13 rebounds, six assists, one steal, and one block while shooting 14-for-21 from the floor and 3-for-5 from beyond the arc. Porzingis is currently shooting the best field goal percentage of his career this season while also improving to his highest points per game. At the same time, he's only one game away from his second-most games played in a season. He's repaid fantasy managers ten-fold for his ADP of 47.
Washington Wizards center Daniel Gafford (foot) is questionable for Tuesday's game against the Celtics. Gafford logged 29 minutes in Sunday's loss to the Raptors, finishing with 10 points, eight boards, and one block. However, he's in danger of missing this one because of a sore left foot. If the 24-year-old is ruled out, Kristaps Porzingis should slide over to the middle. At the same time, Taj Gibson may make a rare appearance, although he's not someone to consider for fantasy purposes.
Washington Wizards guard Monte Morris (groin) is questionable ahead of Tuesday's meeting with Boston. He didn't play in Toronto on Sunday because of a sore groin, so Delon Wright took his place in the rotation. The 30-year-old finished that one with only five points. However, he added eight assists, seven rebounds, and two steals. If Morris is ruled out, Wright will remain a popular fantasy option, although he's not the most consistent scoring option.
Washington Wizards forward Kyle Kuzma (ankle) won't play on Tuesday against Boston, marking his fifth consecutive absence. The Wizards have some tough matchups on the horizon, so making the postseason may not be in the cards for Washington. As a result, fantasy managers may not see Kuzma on the floor for the remainder of the 2022-23 campaign. That said, Bradley Beal (knee) is also out versus the Celtics, meaning Deni Avdija and Corey Kispert should continue to see an uptick in scoring. Of course, Kristaps Porzingis will remain the primary offensive option.
