Description: Though he missed all three of his 3-point attempts, Portland forward Dorell Wright was one of the lone bright spots in a blowout loss at Charlotte Saturday night.
Insight: Wright had 17 points on 6-of-12 shooting and six rebounds in 24 minutes. He has started in place of LaMarcus Aldridge (lower back contusion) the last five games and averaged 12.2 ppg, 5.2 rpg and 2.0 triples in that span.
 
3/14/2014 10:32:00 PM
Description: Blazers forward Dorell Wright started in place of LaMarcus Aldridge (back) Friday and had 15 points, four rebounds, four threes and three assists in 28 minutes.
Insight: Thomas Robinson saw just seven minutes off the bench as the team stuck with a small lineup. Aldridge is expected to miss at least one more game.

Insight: Even though he played much better in the second half (12.4 ppg compared to just 7.3 before the All-Star break), Wright's scoring average dipped for the second year in a row last season. We don't anticipate things getting much better for Wright in the City of Roses, especially with Nic Batum eating up almost 40 minutes a game at the three.
 
4/14/2013 12:14:00 PM
Description: Sixers small forward Dorell Wright had 15 points, four assists, two rebounds and three triples Sunday against the Cavs.
Insight: Wright has been getting decent playing time over the past two months and is averaging 12.3 ppg since the start of March.
 
4/6/2013 12:14:00 PM
Description: Sixers small forward Dorell Wright is questionable for Saturday's game against Miami. He's out with an elbow injury.
Insight: Wright's thin frame prevents him from being a force on the glass. With that said, he has provided fantasy owners with decent scoring and three-point shooting off the bench.
 
4/5/2013 6:53:00 PM
Description: Sixers small forward Dorell Wright won't be in the lineup Friday against the Hawks. He's out with an elbow injury.
Insight: Wright's thin frame prevents him from being a force on the glass, hence his anemic rebounding rate over the last five games (just 2.0 rpg). With that said, he has provided fantasy owners with decent scoring, even if his success rate from the field hasn't been especially high (39.3 percent for the season).
 
3/27/2013 9:55:00 PM
Description: Philadelphia forward Dorell Wright had 14 points with three treys Wednesday versus Milwaukee and is averaging 18.3 points and 3.7 threes over his last three games.
Insight: Wright has finally received extra minutes this month and he has capitalized with averages of 13.5 ppg and 2.5 3pt in 15 March games.
 
3/6/2013 10:11:00 PM
Description: Philadelphia forward Dorell Wright came through with 20 points off the bench Wednesday night in Atlanta.
Insight: Don't get too excited. Wright only shot 6-of-16 from the field. It's not all bad, though. The fact that Wright played 32 minutes (well above his season average of 21.5 mpg) shows that head coach Doug Collins has confidence in him. Perhaps Wright's heavy Wednesday workload is a sign of things to come.
 
3/3/2013 8:44:00 PM
Description: Sixers guard-forward Dorell Wright is averaging 14 points and three threes in his last two games.
Insight: Wright is getting more minutes with Nick Young sidelined. He's a decent short-term add if you need some points, rebounds and threes.
 
1/5/2013 9:22:00 AM
Description: Sixers guard-forward Dorell Wright has scored 35 points on just 23 shot attempts (8-16 3PT) over the last three games.
Insight: Wright just doesn't get enough shots when Jason Richardson is active. While Wright would likely start if Richardson had to miss an extended period of time, 76ers coach Doug Collins tends to go to Nick Young more than Wright off the bench when Richardson, Young and Wright are all in the lineup.

Description: Philadelphia forward Dorell Wright will start Friday against the Warriors. SOURCE: Philadelphia 76ers PR Director Michael Preston
Insight: Wright dropped in 28 points with five 3-pointers Wednesday in his first start since Nov. 10 and has scored 20 or more points in three of his last five games. He should be active in all leagues as he proved what he could do with regular playing time in the first seven games of the season.
 
Hot12/27/2012 9:56:00 AM
Description: Philadelphia forward Dorell Wright tossed in a season-best 28 points Wednesday in a win over the Grizzlies.
Insight: Wright has scored 20 or more in three of his last five games after failing to reach that mark in his first 24 games of the season. He should continue to have good fantasy value as long as Jason Richardson (strained back) remains out of the lineup.
 
12/26/2012 9:58:00 AM
Description: Sixers fans will see a big dose of Dorell Wright in Wednesday's game against Memphis with starting shooting guard Jason Richardson out of the lineup.
Insight: Wright averages 12.8 p[pg, 6.3 rpg, 1.5 apg when he's installed into the starting lineup and hits 40 percent from beyond the arc.
 
12/18/2012 11:19:00 PM
Description: The 76ers have finally turned to Dorell Wright over the last three games and he rewarded their confidence with 25 points on 8-of-18 shooting (7-13 3PT), five rebounds and two assists in 30 minutes Tuesday.
Insight: Wright averaged 12.9 ppg, 6.4 rpg and 2.1 spg with 2.4 3-pointers in 30 minutes per game over his first seven games but hadn't scored in double figures at all while averaging 17 mpg his last 17 games. His playing time will likely decline again when point guard Jrue Holiday returns from a foot sprain and pushes Evan Turner back to small forward.
 
12/4/2012 9:55:00 PM
Description: Even with Nick Young (toe) out, 76ers guard-forward Dorell Wright only played 16 mpg over the last two games.
Insight: Wright got off to an excellent start and was playing major minutes while Jason Richardson was out. He's been a non-factor since Richardson returned and can be dropped in all leagues.
 
11/16/2012 10:35:00 PM
Description: Sixers F Dorell Wright only played five minutes off the bench Friday night against the Jazz, scoring zero points on 0-of-2 shooting.
Insight: Wright's minutes have declined in each of the last three games since Jason Richardson returned to the starting lineup from an ankle injury. If this usage rate continues he'll no longer be worth owning in fantasy leagues.
 
11/10/2012 10:03:00 PM
Description: Sixers F Dorell Wright has scored in double figures five times in six games, including a 15-point effort Saturday against the Raptors.
Insight: Wright has been a stat sheet stuffer thus far, providing owners with 12.7 points, 6.8 rebounds, 1.8 steals, 0.6 blocks and 2.2 3-pointers per game. He's unlikely to lose much playing time when Jason Richardson returns from an injury, even though he'll probably move back to the bench.
 
11/7/2012 10:48:00 AM
Description: Sixers small forward Dorell Wright started at SG for the injured Jason Richardson (ankle) against New York Monday night and posted 14 points and nine rebounds.
Insight: Richardson's absence opens up an opportunity for Wright. He is averaging 13 ppg and 8.3 rpg this season and is a nice fantasy value until Richardson returns.
 
11/6/2012 12:30:00 PM
Description: Sixers small forward Dorell Wright started at SG for the injured Jason Richardson (ankle) against New York Monday night.
Insight: Richardson's absence will open up an opportunity for Wright and Nick Young to become a viable fantasy option. Wright posted 14 points and seven rebounds. Young totaled nine points and three rebound off the bench.
 
11/5/2012 9:54:00 PM
Description: Sixers forward Dorell Wright started at SF with Evan Turner moving to SG in place of Jason Richardson Monday against the Knicks. Wright scored 14 points with nine rebounds and two 3-pointers in the loss.
Insight: Wright has scored double-digit points in all three games this season while grabbing 8.3 rebounds per game. He should be active in fantasy lineups even when he returns to the bench.
