Washington Wizards Roster
- Eastern Southeast
- Capital One Arena
Washington Wizards guard Landry Shamet (rib) will miss his second consecutive game on Friday with a right rib sprain. He doesn't have a firm timetable for his return right now, so Shamet could end up missing some more action after this game as well. While he's out, Bilal Coulibaly, Corey Kispert, and Jared Butler will continue to get the backup wing minutes off of the bench. Coulibaly and Kispert would be the best streaming options regardless of fantasy league size.
Washington Wizards center Daniel Gafford (ankle) has been listed as questionable for the Friday night contest against the Brooklyn Nets. The big man was able to play a full game against the Philadelphia 76ers on Wednesday before fouling out, and he was listed as questionable before that game as well. Fantasy managers will want to stay tuned for updates after shootaround and warmups. If he can't suit up, however, Mike Muscala, Danilo Gallinari, and Anthony Gill will likely see a boost in playing time.
Washington Wizards guard Landry Shamet (rib) has been downgraded to out against the Philadelphia 76ers on Wednesday. The sharpshooter is dealing with a right rib sprain that ultimately gave him too much pain to play through. While he's on the sidelines, Jordan Poole (ankle) and Johnny Davis (calf) will both see more minutes if they are able to be upgraded from questionable. Otherwise, Corey Kispert and Bilal Coulibaly could see a lot of minutes in this contest.
Washington Wizards guard Landry Shamet (rib) is questionable for Wednesday's action against Philadelphia. He's likely desperate to play against his former team, but Shamet might have to sit out the contest due to a right rib sprain. Shamet has had some strong showing lately, scoring double figures in four of the last five games off the Wizards bench. With Jordan Poole (ankle) also questionable for the matchup, Bilal Coulibaly and Corey Kispert could be very busy men from the second unit on Wednesday. However, fantasy managers should tame their expectations, as this is a very tough matchup for a struggling team.
Washington Wizards guard Jordan Poole (ankle) is questionable for Wednesday's game against the Philadelphia 76ers. Poole's statistical offerings during his first year in Washington have been dodgy to say the least, but his availability has been mostly consistent while missing just one game this season on Nov. 25 due to this same left ankle soreness. The underperforming 24-year-old has fared far more tolerably in points leagues with averages of 17.2 points, 1.9 treys, and 1.2 steals and limited all-around contributions during 29.4 minutes through 18 games in D.C., ranking outside the top 150 in category formats in fantasy thus far. Swingman Corey Kispert and first-round rookie Bilal Coulibaly would help fill in against the Sixers in the possible void of Poole, whose status could be updated once more after Wednesday morning's shootaround.
