  • Wizards' Daniel Gafford: Leads WSH to victory

    Gafford logged 22 points (9-10 FG, 4-4 FT), eight rebounds, four assists and one block over 25 minutes during Friday's 114-108 win over the Heat.

    Gafford was outstanding Friday, missing just one shot from the field and ending two rebounds away from a double-double while also leading Washington in scoring in this win. The Wizards are out of the playoff race, and with just one game left in the schedule, it remains to be seen if Gafford will start or if he'll receive some rest. To note, he's averaging 25.2 minutes per game since the beginning of March,tallying 10.8 points and 5.9 rebounds per tilt.

  • Wizards' Daniel Gafford: Missing finale

    Gafford will sit out Sunday's season finale against the Rockets due to an ankle injury, Ava Wallace of The Washington Post reports.

    As the Wizards commit to playing a skeleton crew, Gafford will get a seat for the final game of the season, which should prompt Jay Huff to see more action. Gafford concludes his fourth NBA season with averages of 9.0 points, 5.6 rebounds, 1.3 blocks and 1.1 assists in 20.6 minutes per game -- similar numbers to last season.

  • Wizards' Daniel Gafford: Posts big double-double in loss

    Gafford had 25 points (8-10 FG, 9-9 FT), 10 rebounds, two blocks, one assist and one steal over 23 minutes during Wednesday's 134-116 loss to Atlanta.

    Washington was without arguably six of its top seven players Wednesday, affording Gafford the chance to take on one of his higher usage rates of the season. Even though he wasn't pushed for extended minutes, Gafford still converted with hyper-efficiency, and the career 66.3 percent free-throw shooter was even stellar from the charity stripe on high volume. Head coach Wes Unseld Jr. hasn't commented on the availability of Bradley Beal (knee), Kristaps Porzingis (illness) or Kyle Kuzma (ankle) for the Wizards' final two games of the season, but with the likelihood that all three have been shut down, Gafford should make for a strong streaming option for field-goal percentage, blocks and rebounds in both contests.

  • Wizards' Daniel Gafford: Double-doubles in start

    Gafford produced 18 points (8-14 FG, 2-3 FT), 13 rebounds, one assist, two blocks and one steal in 33 minutes during Friday's 116-109 loss to the Magic.

    Kristaps Porzingis was held out due to an illness, allowing Gafford to move into the starting lineup. He's been successful in that role this season, averaging 10.1 points, 6.1 rebounds, 1.6 assists and 1.3 blocks in 42 previous starts. The Wizards will be back in action April 2 against the Knicks, though it's unclear if Porzingis will be able to return for that contest.

  • Wizards' Daniel Gafford: Ready to go Friday

    Gafford (foot) will suit up for Friday's game versus the Magic.

    Gafford was listed as questionable on the initial injury report, but the big man will indeed make his return to the floor after a one-game absence because of the foot issue. He will presumably replace Kristaps Porzingis (illness) -- who will miss the festivities Friday -- in the starting five.

  • Wizards' Daniel Gafford: Status uncertain versus Orlando

  • Wizards' Daniel Gafford: Downgraded to out

    Gafford (foot) has been ruled out for Tuesday's game against the Celtics.

    Gafford is slated to miss his first game since Jan. 30 due to left foot soreness. In his absence, Taj Gibson and Jay Huff are candidates for increased roles, but Washington may opt for more lineups with Kristaps Porzingis at the five, as well. Gafford's next chance to suit up will come Friday against the Magic.

  • Wizards' Daniel Gafford: Questionable for Tuesday's contest

    Gafford is questionable for Tuesday' game against the Celtics due to left foot soreness.

    Gafford is in danger of missing his first game since Jan. 30. If that's the case, Taj Gibson and Jay Huff would be candidates for increased roles, but Kristaps Porzingis would presumably see more time at center as well.

  • Wizards' Daniel Gafford: Produces solid defensive stats

    Gafford provided four points (2-4 FG), six rebounds, four assists, three blocks and two steals in 22 minutes in Tuesday's 117-97 win over the Pistons.

    While Gafford came through with intriguing numbers in the two defensive categories, his playing time continued its downward trend Tuesday, even with the Wizards missing a key starter in Kyle Kuzma (knee). Gafford has played 25 minutes or fewer in six of the past seven games, as starting power forward Kristaps Porzingis has begun to eat into Gafford's time at center. The declining minutes make Gafford tough to view as a must-roster option in 12-team category leagues.

  • Wizards' Daniel Gafford: Solid performance Friday

    Gafford provided 13 points (6-7 FG, 1-1 FT), eight rebounds, two assists and one block in 29 minutes during Friday's 114-107 loss to Atlanta.

    Gafford did just what was required in the loss, scoring efficiently, grabbing a handful of rebounds and chipping in on the defensive end. While the minutes were encouraging, Gafford did benefit from the fact Kristaps Porzingis was in early foul trouble. He also remained on the bench to close the game, indicating the team is still not comfortable running with him down the stretch. He can be rostered in standard formats, but the uncertainty surrounding his nightly role does raise a few questions.

  • Wizards' Daniel Gafford: Drops 18 points in win

    Gafford closed Thursday's 119-108 victory over the Raptors with 18 points (8-10 FG, 2-3 FT), five rebounds, two assists and one block over 31 minutes.

    Gafford has scored in double figures in three straight games while averaging 15.3 points. However, he didn't snag 10 rebounds in this one to keep his double-double streak going. Gafford produces a great field-goal percentage and good block totals. He will be even more useful as the fantasy season comes to an end if he can continue to put up points.

  • Wizards' Daniel Gafford: Second straight double-double

    Gafford notched 13 points (5-6 FG, 3-4 FT), 12 rebounds, two assists, three blocks and one steal across 34 minutes during Tuesday's 119-116 victory over the Hawks.

    The fourth-year center recorded his second straight double-double and eighth of the season, tying the career high he set in 2021-22. Over his last 12 games, Gafford has stepped up his production, averaging 10.4 points, 7.3 boards, 1.9 blocks and 1.7 assists while shooting a stunning 76.9 percent from the floor.

  • Wizards' Daniel Gafford: Limited production in win

    Gafford accumulated two points (1-2 FG), one rebound and one assist across 15 minutes during Tuesday's 126-101 victory over the Trail Blazers.

    The Wizards had a comfortable lead during Tuesday's matchup, and Gafford got into some foul trouble with five fouls. This combination likely contributed to him playing just 15 minutes, his lowest total since joining the starting lineup in late December. He's also been held to single-digit scoring totals in three of his last seven appearances, averaging 9.6 points and 6.1 rebounds in 26.0 minutes per game during that time.

  • Wizards' Daniel Gafford: Goes for 13 points, four blocks

    Gafford closed Saturday's 127-113 victory over the Pacers with 13 points (6-6 FG, 1-3 FT), five rebounds, two assists and four blocks in 30 minutes.

    Gafford delivered the goods on both ends of the floor, continuing what has been a strong month of basketball. Over that period, he has been a top-70 player in nine-category leagues, averaging 11.3 points and 6.8 rebounds to go with 2.1 blocks. He has also shot well over 70 percent from the floor, proving to be a sneaky asset across all formats. The Wizards seem comfortable playing him alongside Kristaps Porzingis, meaning he should be able to maintain his current value ROS.
