Kelly Oubre    F  Wizards

 

 

Kelly Oubre (knee) has been working out in Miami with John Wall. Oubre had PRP treatment in June and was cleared for workouts in July, so chances are he's close to 100 percent. He'll be going into his third year and could get more minutes, especially with how the Wizards had some success with their forward combo of Oubre and Otto Porter. Oubre still isn't a strong fantasy target.

Donald Sloan    G  Wizards

 

 

Donald Sloan agreed to a one-year deal with the Wizards. It's likely just a camp deal for the five-year vet. Sloan was with the Nets in the 2015-16 season and he did spend some time with the Pacers before that, but he'll likely just be there for training camp.

Markieff Morris    F  Wizards

 

 

Markieff Morris said he spent a large chunk of the offseason working on his 3-point shooting. He shot a career-high 36.2 percent from deep last season, so he has a good foundation to build on. Morris also said he's aiming for more scoring diversity and "staying more consistent" overall. The Wizards didn't address their frontcourt this summer other than bringing in veteran Mike Scott, so Morris will reprise his role as the starting PF. He was a top-75 asset in standard leagues last season with averages of 14.0 points, 6.5 rebounds, 1.7 assists, 0.6 blocks, 1.1 steals and 0.9 triples, but fantasy owners can usually grab him pretty late.

Kelly Oubre    F  Wizards

 

 

Wizards owner Ted Leonsis said that head coach Scott Brooks "really, really" likes Kelly Oubre and believes that he can be a "difference maker." "[Oubre] kind of has that X-factor in his game," Leonsis said. Oubre has recovered from a PRP injection in his right knee in early June, and Leonsis expects him to "challenge [the Wizards] to pay him a lot of money." He'll earn $2.1 million this season with a $3.2 million team option in 2018-19, before potentially hitting restricted free agency the following summer. Assuming he looks healthy throughout the preseason, he could be a flier pick in deeper leagues.

Ian Mahinmi    F/C  Wizards

 

 

Head coach Scott Brooks said that Ian Mahinmi had a minor procedure on his left knee soon after the conclusion of the 2016-17 season. The Wiz had high hopes for Mahinmi after inking him to a four-year, $64 million contract last summer, but he missed 51 games due to an assortment of knee injuries. However, Brooks is optimistic that Mahinmi will bounce back in 2017-18. "He's down to like 238, he's in the best shape he's ever been. He's working hard and looking forward to coming back," Brooks said. Playing behind Marcin Gortat even when healthy, Mahinmi can be ignored in standard fantasy leagues.

Brandon Jennings    G  Wizards

 

 

Brandon Jennings has accepted a one-year, $1.5 million deal to play for China Shanxi. He hopes to play in the NBA after the Chinese season ends, so he'll be a popular name in March. Jennings should be able to light it up in China and will probably have some record-breaking performances. His NBA career has been on the downswing after his 15.4 points per game in 2014-15, but he projects as an NBA backup.

John Wall    G  Wizards

 

 

John Wall's four-year, $170 million contract extension became official on Wednesday. Wall called it an "easy decision" to agree on a deal that will keep him in Washington through the 2022-23 season. Team president Ernie Grunfeld said that Wall has "constantly worked to improve and expand his game and has developed into an All-NBA player who has elevated our franchise and electrified our fans." He's been remarkably durable over the past four seasons and should once again return cumulative first-round value in 8-cat fantasy leagues.
