Washington Wizards forward/center Markieff Morris (illness) is probable for Monday's game versus the Boston Celtics. What It Means: It sounds like Morris will return after missing two games with the flu. The Wizards have four games a piece over the next two weeks, so Morris is worth owning in standard leagues. His return means Jason Smith is probably headed back to the bench. Morris costs $6,000 on FanDuel Monday night. Our models project him to record 13.4 points, 6.6 rebounds, 1.8 assists and 1.1 steals in 31.8 minutes versus Boston. Source: Rotoworld.com

Washington Wizards forward/center Markieff Morris (illness) will not play against the Chicago Bulls on Friday and Jason Smith will start in his place. What It Means: He has a sinus issue and this news came out of nowhere just a few minutes ago. With Morris out, Smith should see minutes close to 20, but you can bet the Wizards will use a lot of lineups with Otto Porter and Bojan Bogdanovic at the forward spots. Plus, Marcin Gortat's minutes are also safer because Morris has played a lot of five recently. Our models project Smith for 8.0 points, 5.2 rebounds, and 0.6 assists in...

Wizards vs Bulls final score: Wall dishes out career-high 20 assists in Washington's 112-107 victory

Wizards vs Bulls final score: Wall dishes out career-high 20 assists in Washington's 112-107 victory

John Wall dished out a career-high 20 assists to help the Wizards pick up a much-needed 112-107 victory at Verizon Center against the Bulls on Friday night. Jason Smith received the start in place of an ill Markieff Morris, his first of the season. He came out with relentless energy, hustling after loose rebounds and picking off passes while Bradley Beal lit it up early. Unfortunately, Beal picked up 2 early fouls, which led to a surprise appearance by Kelly Oubre, after being left out of the rotation in recent games. Washington ended the period up 29-23. The bench unit, including Oubre,...

Brandon Jennings fined $35,000 for ‘menacing gestures’ during scuffle with Suns

Brandon Jennings fined $35,000 for ‘menacing gestures’ during scuffle with Suns

The NBA announced on Thursday they are fining Brandon Jennings $35,000 for making a “menacing gesture” during Tuesday’s game between the Wizards and Suns. Jennings was ejected from the game after referees said he pointed his finger at Jared Dudley like a gun during the melee. After the game, Jennings told Candace Buckner of the Washington Post that the gesture wasn’t intended to appear violent “I was telling Dudley to relax, like, calm down, because you’re not that type of guy,” Jennings said. “Jason Smith didn’t do anything wrong anyway. All he did was set a good pick,...

Wizards and Suns get into altercation after Jason Smith’s hard screen

Wizards and Suns get into altercation after Jason Smith’s hard screen

That escalated quick. Tuesday night’s Wizards game against the Suns had some extra curricular activities after a physical play in the second quarter. What sparked the situation was that Jason Smith laid a hard screen on Suns guard Tyler Ulis. Phoenix forward Jared Dudley came to Ulis’ defense and headbutted Smith. Both teams soon got into a shoving match. Here’s the video below: JARED DUDLEY HEADBUTTS JASON SMITH! #WeArePHX #DCFamily pic.twitter.com/oEAA833mGo— The Fuzz (@TheFuzzNBA) March 8, 2017 Dudley, who coincidentally played for Washington last season, was ejected, and...

How the Wizards’ bench fueled a 26-1 run against the Raptors

How the Wizards’ bench fueled a 26-1 run against the Raptors

Scott Brooks has opted for nine-man rotations throughout most of his coaching career, both with the Wizards and the Thunder. That means there’s usually always a starter on the floor, no matter what combination Brooks puts on the floor. But in Wednesday’s win against the Raptors, Brooks opted to use an all-bench lineup — Tomas Satoransky, Kelly Oubre, Bojan Bogdanovic, Jason Smith, and Ian Mahinmi —to start the second quarter. This wasn’t just a change of pace, it was a gutsy move for several reasons: A lot was riding on Wednesday’s game. Toronto could have taken back the...

Jason Smith should still be a part of the Wizards’ rotation

Jason Smith should still be a part of the Wizards’ rotation

There was a time, not too long ago, when Jason Smith might have been the worst player in the NBA; seriously, the worst player. Through the first 16 games of the season, Smith had an effective field goal percentage under 37, per NBA.com, and Washington had a -15.4 net rating with him on the floor. Put simply, things were not going well. But, thankfully for the Wizards, the ninth year big man eventually turned things around. He started rebounding better, proved to be a solid defender, and was finally nailing the midrange jumpers that were a big part of the reason why he landed a three year,...
