  • Mavericks' P.J. Washington: Keeps scoring run alive

    Washington accumulated 21 points (7-19 FG, 5-11 3Pt, 2-4 FT), 12 rebounds and one block over 41 minutes during Monday's 100-96 loss to the Thunder in Game 4 of the Western Conference Semifinals.

    The Mavericks failed to protect their home court and had to settle for a tough loss in Game 4, but one of the few positives in Monday's loss was that Washington continues to perform well even when he commands more attention from the opposing defenses. Washington has been Dallas' second-best player in this series, reaching the 20-point mark in three straight appearances and recording two double-doubles. Game 5 is scheduled for Wednesday in Oklahoma City.

  • Mavericks' P.J. Washington: Scores team-high 27 points

    Washington contributed 27 points (11-23 FG, 5-12 3Pt), six rebounds and two assists in 40 minutes during Saturday's 105-101 win over the Thunder in Game 3 of the Western Conference Semifinals.

    Washington enjoyed another splendid shooting night beyond the arc after draining seven shots from downtown in Game 2. The 23 shot attempts matched a season high for Washington, who is averaging 13.0 points, 6.1 rebounds, 1.5 steals, 1.3 assists and 1.0 blocks in the playoffs. He's also converting 52.9 percent of his shots during the postseason.

  • Mavericks' P.J. Washington: Solid output in Game 2 victory

    Washington produced 29 points (11-18 FG, 7-11 3Pt, 0-1 FT), 11 rebounds, four assists, one block and two steals across 40 minutes before fouling out of Thursday's 119-110 victory over the Thunder in Game 2 of the Western Conference Semifinals.

    Kyrie Irving didn't have his best performance Thursday, but Washington stepped up in a game where the Mavericks needed someone to carry the offensive load alongside Luka Doncic. This was Washington's best game of the current playoff run, as it was his first double-double since April 7. Washington is averaging 13.0 points and 6.1 rebounds per game in the playoffs, and he's scored in double digits in all but one of his eight appearances to date.

  • Mavericks' P.J. Washington: Ejected in Game 3 win

    Washington chipped in 10 points (5-10 FG, 0-4 3Pt), five rebounds, one assist, one block and three steals over 34 minutes before getting ejected from Friday's 101-90 win over the Clippers in Game 3 of the first round of the Western Conference playoffs.

    Washington was ejected following a scuffle with Russell Westbrook, much to the delight of the home fans. While losing a player is never a good thing, his energy and willingness to not back down proved a hit with the Dallas faithful. Before his premature exit, Washington managed to put together another strong performance. He will look to maintain that energy heading into Game 4 on Sunday.

  • Mavericks' P.J. Washington: Posts double figures in Game 1 loss

    Washington racked up 11 points (4-10 FG, 2-7 3Pt, 1-2 FT), seven rebounds, one block and two steals over 37 minutes during Sunday's 109-97 loss to the Clippers in Game 1 of the Western Conference Quarterfinals.

    The big man started alongside Daniel Gafford up front and knocked down a pair of threes on his way to joining Kyrie Irving (31 points) and Luka Doncic (33) as the only Mavs players in double figures. The fact that Washington saw 37 minutes of action bodes well for his fantasy value as the series moves along.

  • Mavericks' P.J. Washington: Ready for Game 1 on Sunday

    Washington (ankle) is not on the official injury report and will be available for Game 1 of the opening-round series against the Clippers on Sunday.

    With Dallas already locked into its playoff matchup, Washington didn't play in the Mavericks' final game of the regular season, but he will be ready for the playoff opener. Expect him to handle his regular workload in the frontcourt. Washington averaged 14.0 points and 7.2 rebounds per game over his last 10 regular-season appearances.

  • Mavericks' P.J. Washington: Won't play Sunday

    Washington won't play Sunday against the Thunder due to a right ankle sprain.

    This is a new issue for Washington, but the Mavericks are likely holding him out as a precaution. Coach Jason Kidd previously hinted that he would be holding out a lot of players, and most of the rotation is indeed getting the day off.

  • Mavericks' P.J. Washington: Held to one point

    Washington racked up one point (0-7 FG, 0-6 3Pt, 1-2 FT), seven rebounds, three assists and one steal in 28 minutes during Tuesday's 130-104 victory over the Hornets.

    This was a rare dud for Washington, and fantasy managers just need to chalk it up as a bad shooting night. Despite this poor showing, Washington holds averages of 14.1 points, 7.2 rebounds, 1.9 assists, 1.5 steals and 1.1 blocks over his last 10 games.

  • Mavericks' P.J. Washington: Steps up sans Doncic

    Washington had 32 points (12-18 FG, 5-8 3Pt, 3-5 FT), five rebounds, three assists, two blocks and five steals across 40 minutes during Friday's 108-106 win over the Warriors.

    Luka Doncic (knee) didn't play in the contest, leaving a massive hole in the team's offensive attack. Washington stepped up to help fill the void, pouring in a team-leading 32 points, his most since joining Dallas via trade in early February. Washington's scoring has been up and down as a member of the Mavs, but he may be starting to find a groove in that regard, as he's scored at least 19 points in each of his past three games.

  • Mavericks' P.J. Washington: Hits five threes vs. Hawks

    Washington supplied 19 points (6-11 FG, 5-8 3Pt, 2-2 FT), eight rebounds, three assists, one block and one steal in 36 minutes during Thursday's 109-95 win over the Hawks.

    His five threes Thursday marked the fifth time this season Washington has reached that mark. He's scored in double digits in five of his last six games and has settled into a complementary role on offense next to Luka Doncic and Kyrie Irving. As a starter with the Mavericks, Washington is averaging 11.2 points, 6.1 rebounds, 1.4 assists, 1.0 blocks and 1.0 steals over 32.5 minutes per game.

  • Mavericks' P.J. Washington: Goes for 20 points Tuesday

    Washington recorded 20 points (8-19 FG, 3-10 3Pt, 1-2 FT), five rebounds, one block and three steals over 36 minutes during Tuesday's 104-100 loss to the Warriors.

    Washington has adjusted well to the Mavericks' offensive scheme and has established himself as the starting power forward. Washington has found a way to produce despite playing a secondary role in Dallas' offensive scheme, scoring in double digits in four of his last five appearances. He's averaging 11.0 points, 6.0 rebounds and 1.3 assists per game since joining Dallas from Washington before the trade deadline.

  • Mavericks' P.J. Washington: Records double-double in win

    Washington registered 14 points (5-11 FG, 4-6 3Pt, 0-2 FT), 13 rebounds and two assists across 32 minutes during Tuesday's 132-96 win over the Kings.

    Washington registered his first double-double in Dallas during the lopsided victory, further cementing his full-time role at the four. The former Hornet has come close to the milestone a couple of times, but if Daniel Gafford and Dereck Lively continue to post subpar stat lines, his opportunities to get sufficient rebound numbers should increase.

  • Mavericks' P.J. Washington: Not listed on injury report

    Washington (ankle) isn't on the injury report ahead of Monday's game against the Jazz, Grant Afseth of reports.

    Washington appeared to suffer a right ankle injury during Friday's game against Washington, but after being evaluated further, he'll be ready to go for Monday's clash. The 25-year-old has been held in check in the scoring column of late, averaging 7.0 points over his last seven appearances.

  • Mavericks' P.J. Washington: May have tweaked ankle Thursday

    Mavericks head coach Jason Kidd said after Thursday's 113-97 win over the Jazz that Washington will be re-evaluated Friday after the big man appeared to suffer a right ankle injury late in the fourth quarter, Grant Afseth of reports.

    Kidd suggested that Washington may have inadvertently stepped on another player's foot, though Brad Townsend of The Dallas Morning News relays that the 25-year-old looked to have tweaked his right ankle when he slipped on a wet spot on the court. Whatever the case, Washington turned in another disappointing offensive performance before checking out of the game for good with 1:59 remaining, finishing with six points (3-9 FG, 0-4 3Pt), five rebounds, two steals, two blocks and one assist in 33 minutes. Over his last seven games, Washington is averaging 7.0 points, 5.9 rebounds, 1.1 steals, 1.1 blocks, 1.0 assists and 0.7 three-pointers in 31.4 minutes per contest while shooting a dismal 32.8 percent from the field and 60 percent from the free-throw line. Though Washington's playing time appears stable and his shooting should improve in the games to come, fantasy managers in leagues with daily lineup moves likely can't afford to hold him at this stage of the season while he's in a massive slump and dealing with an injury. The Mavericks are off for the weekend before returning to action in Monday's game in Utah.
