Paul Pierce, F2/24/2015 9:28:00 PM
Description: Wizards small forward Paul Pierce was very efficient Tuesday, making 7-of-11 field goals and 9-of-9 foul shots in the loss to the Warriors.

Insight: Beal missed about a month last season due to a stress reaction after not finishing the 2012-13 season because of the same injury. Beal should benefit from the long All-Star break, but this is very bad news. Otto Porter and Garrett Temple will see their value increase until Beal can return.
Bradley Beal, SG2/10/2015 2:26:00 PM
Description: Wizards shooting guard Bradley Beal will not play on Wednesday versus the Raptors.

Insight: He was supposed to get an MRI on the foot, but we still are waiting to hear the results. Even if he plays it will certainly be at less than 100 percent and there is the chance he could be forced to the sidelines again.

Description: Wizards center Marcin Gortat has not been very effective of late, but broke out of his slump with a solid 14-point, nine rebound effort Wednesday night.
Insight: Considering he had scored a total of six points in his previous two games, that's a huge leap forward. He shaved his Mohawk but we don't think it was the "streamlined" look that made the difference - just better effort.
Bradley Beal, SG2/5/2015 10:56:00 AM
Description: After averaging 13.9 ppg in 2012-13 and 17.1 ppg in 2013-14 fantasy owners might have hoped that Wizards shooting guard Bradley Beal would continue his upward progression, but that hasn't been the case in 2014-15
Insight: He's averaging just 15.4 ppg this season, but has played better of late, averaging 17.0 ppg, 4.5 rpg, 2.8 apg over his last 10 contests, so perhaps there is still some hope.

Description: Wizards small forward Paul Pierce did not play Wednesday against the Knicks. No injury, just giving the "old guy" a rest.

Nene , PF/C1/2/2015 11:33:00 AM
Description: Wizards power forward Nene is questionable for Friday's game against Oklahoma City due to a sprained left ankle.

Martell Webster, SG10/27/2014 5:46:00 PM
Description: Wizards forward/guard Martell Webster will miss the beginning of the season after undergoing back surgery in July to repair a herniated disc.
